Twirl and Swirl pasta plate

Spaghetti is a staple at the American table. According to a recent survey by the National Pasta Association, 77 percent of Americans said they eat pasta at least once a week, while a third eat it three or more times a week.

Despite its popularity, pasta can be a challenge to eat with proper etiquette. Even Italians, who've enjoyed pasta for centuries, admit it can be difficult to eat long-strand, sauced-up spaghetti with style. So how can you get that perfect forkful every time without messy splatters, cumbersome spoons -- or coming off as a food fumbler with sauce all over your face and clothes?

The kitchen gadget specialists who brought you the Original Butter Bell crock have unraveled this universal pasta predicament with a new innovation. The Perfect Pasta Plate™ is an elegant new line of ceramic dinnerware designed to enhance the enjoyment of eating pastas like spaghetti, angel hair and fettuccine. The raised center swirl allows you to twirl the perfectly portioned forkful of pasta and sauce without messy slurps, splatters or mess. The patent pending design follows the correct etiquette for eating pasta -- without a spoon!

"No wonder they call it the Perfect Pasta Plate," says Soerke Peters, Executive Chef of Ca' Del Sol Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, CA. "The center swirl delivers just the right amount of sauce to each forkful of pasta. You can now enjoy pasta the way the chef intended it."

Microwaveable and dishwasher-safe, the pasta plate also works well with other long noodles and Asian dishes like Chow Mein. It makes eating noodles fun and easy, and kids especially love it. It's also a creative and decorative way to serve dip and crudités or dip and chips.

The Perfect Pasta Plate™ comes in sets of two plates and is available in Italian-inspired colors; bright white, tomato red and olive green. Each set retails for $29.99. Available at or gourmet specialty stores nationwide.

The Perfect Pasta Plate™ will be on display at the 2008 International Home & Housewares Show, Booth #3071 in the Gourmet Housewares Section of Chicago's McCormick Place, March 16-18. For more product information call 1-888-575-1900 or visit the product website.
