Anything on Amazon that has more than a hundred reviews and the average is 5 out of 5 almost has to be good.
This is. I had actually never heard of it but was looking for items to do the 4 for 3 promotion. We just tried it and it worked awesome. Simple, much quicker than boiling a bunch of water, and probably saved a lot of energy.
Only problem is if you have more than I would say 3 people might have to use it in 2 batches. Anyhow search on Amazon if you like pasta (and nowadays it is easy to find 100% whole wheat pasta the only kind we eat) this is a neat and inexpensive thing to have.
