There is no doubting the sheer power that comes with Charvet pasta cookers. At 11 kW for the electric and 13.5 kW for gas they have plenty of ‘grunt’ to suit the busiest of sites, but they are also very controllable thanks to a digital thermostat which also makes the Pasta Cooker ideal for other tasks such as sous vide poaching and slow-poached eggs. (For hygiene and ease of removal cook the eggs in a ziplock-style bag and attach the bag to the side of the bath with a clip or simply by resting the lid on top of the bag.) Cooking water is...
