Becoming familiar with your new ruffoni
Caterina, the 8qt copper Pasta Pot/Stockpot lined with practical stainless steel, is the main character of The Pasta Queen Limited Edition. Rely on this capacious Stockpot for making soups, stock and of course for boiling pasta. The included Pasta Insert will help you save the precious pasta water (or “the Tears of the Gods”, as The Pasta Queen calls it) – an essential ingredient to make extra velvety sauces that will cling to the pasta and coat it perfectly.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hammered by our master artisans for increased strength and lasting beauty, and internally lined with practical, easy-to-care-for stainless steel. The stainless steel handles are decorated with delicate leaves and the lid is topped with a solid bronze, silver-plated knob in the shape of a crown, filled with Nadia's favorite pasta.

Ideas For Use
Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Stockpot
Stockpots are approximately as tall as they are wide: a clever proportion that maximizes their capacity, meaning you can cook plenty of food at once.
Fill with water and any veggies found wondering at the back of the fridge for a light and tasty homemade vegetable stock, or add meat and bones for delicious homemade stock which can be used in any number of dishes (our favorite: risotto!). Alternatively, make a flavor base with soffritto, then layer on your favorite seasonal vegetables and simmer gently for endless soup options, nourishing and satisfying. The stockpot can also be used to gently simmer grains or prepare oatmeal for breakfast, or take a page out of all nonnas' book and mix vegetables, legumes and short pasta for a nourishing minestrone that the whole family will enjoy.
Bring directly to the table to keep your soup warm until serving and elevate any simple supper to special occasion. Store your stockpot right on the stovetop or on a display shelf when not in use to enjoy its warm shine every time you walk into your kitchen.
