Cooking the perfect pasta sounds easy, right? Please, do us a favor and don't ask how often we've ended up with pasta that is either slightly under-done or sticky enough to use as wallpaper paste. The Perfect Pasta Timer ($40) is easy to use and pretty darn effective. It allows you to select from the ten most common types of pasta, input how much you're cooking, and to choose whether you want it to turn out al dente or regular. You simply clip the timer to the side of the pot and wait for it to beep. Easy, effective, and dependable. If only we could find a man like that.
