Why would I want a dedicated pasta pot/insert?

comestible | Dec 30, 201011:07 AM

Received an 8-qt. stainless Williams-Sonoma pasta pot with insert for Christmas. It's lovely but I am considering exchanging it for something else.

I make pasta frequently but am confused why this should be better than any of my stockpots (have 2 or 3) plus my beautiful wide 1940-ish enameled colander.

The W-S pot can't even be used as a steamer; the insert goes almost all the way to the bottom.

If you can inform me why this pot is a better idea than what I have, I'm all ears -- maybe I'll keep it.

Thanks.
