The Fasta Pasta Microwave Pasta Cooker will churn out perfectly cooked pasta in about 12 minutes — basically, the same amount of time it can take your water to start boiling. 

It's also so easy to use: Just measure out your water, toss in your pasta, cook it and drain it, all within the container. That's it! You'll be eating pasta in a fraction of the usual time. 

But...how? The Fasta Pasta has a specialized reservoir design that lets water easily circulate around your pasta, cooking it to perfection while you're off doing whatever you please (i.e. not sitting there waiting for a pot to boil). Choose between a bold red or classic white shade — they're both on sale!

Once you're done, just toss the whole thing in the dishwasher.

The Fasta Pasta Microwave Pasta Cooker has an army of devoted fans who rave about how easy this makes it to cook pasta. "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo!" a five-star fan said. "I try to limit my monthly food expenditures and the Fasta Pasta helps me work in at least one inexpensive pasta meal every week. If not more. First of all, I like spaghetti — either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterwards. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly-measured spaghetti; it's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap. No big pot; no colander; no spaghetti fork to lift out the pasta."

A fellow fan called the Fasta Pasta a "miracle." They wrote: "I’ve been getting tired of cooking as I’ve aged. This simple little microwave pasta cooker has simplified cooking so much more than I could have imagined. Seems silly, but it’s kinda like a little miracle. No more toting a heavy pot to the stove. No more pouring pasta and boiling water into a colander. It’s simple, lightweight and foolproof. You’ll never regret buying this."

Whether you want to make the pasta-cooking process faster or are looking for a fun stocking stuffer, act fast! This deal is only for today.
