The lid locks to the pot 8 in 1™ automatically when rotated to any of straining positions adjustable gradually - strain pasta without holding the lid or leave it in a sink to self-strain while you are finishing the sauce, and it will keep your pasta hot meanwhile.

I'm one of those people that has a million different pots and pans and strainers. I don't want to spend too much money but will pay reasonable for quality. I LOVE the Michnik cookware! It's large enough to cook pasta and things for the entire family plus guests, it's easy to clean, and it's overall convenient. The best part is the strainer lid that locks in place...I haven't burnt myself once!!! I would totally recommend this and will certainly purchase for friends and family as gifts.

While comprising only 2 parts as conventional pots, MICHNIK® pots 8 in 1 protect from burns, from loss of food, and save water, space, time, and money when utilized also as at least 8 more cookware utilities - save the cost of the pots 8 in 1 just on water bills and help environment.
The MICHNIK has been the perfect addition to my family's cookware.  Now that we've been using it for awhile, it's hard to imagine not having it in the kitchen.  It's one of those inventions that seems so simple in concept, yet you find yourself wondering, how did we live without this thing?  It's simple, attractive and effective, and it makes life easier in the kitchen.  Enough said.
