Caterina is the queen of The Pasta Queen Collection. This 3-piece copper and stainless steel beauty is the center of attention – inspired by my grandmother Caterina. This strong and beautiful pot, integrated colander and handcrafted lid, carries my family’s legacy in creating traditional, exquisite pasta recipes.



About Caterina

Rely on this pasta pot for the endless delicious pasta meals you’ll make over a lifetime. She’ll be like a wonderful grandmother, always by your side when you need her and brightening up your kitchen. Caterina is enhanced by her hammered copper and gorgeous lid, which displays a beautiful crown with pasta for a knob. 

Thanks to the included pasta insert, Caterina will help you save the precious pasta water aka “the Tears of the Gods”: an essential element to make extra velvety sauces that will cling onto the pasta. Just take the insert out when your pasta is perfectly al dente, and drop it straight into the sauce you are simmering in your Pinuccia chef pan: the Tears of the Gods will be waiting for you at the bottom of Caterina.

And don’t forget, when used without the insert, Caterina is a generously sized stockpot perfect to prepare all sorts stocks, soups and minestrone!

Caterina is the key component of the quintessential cookware set. Time and again, she’ll be there for you to make the pasta that sets the stage for your dishes.

A Collection for Perfect Pasta - Every Time

Copper conducts heat and spreads it around quickly and evenly so everything in the pot or pan is equally cooked. This set is made of solid copper and clad stainless steel for superior heat-conductivity by our Ruffoni partners, a fourth-generation workshop in the Italian Alps. They handcraft each piece, hammer them for increased strength and lasting beauty, and finish them with my signature pasta crown especially for the Pasta Queen Collection. The pots and pans are also internally lined with practical, easy-to-care-for stainless steel for daily convenience. This set is a trustworthy ally when it comes to preparing and serving countless meals. When not in use, the gorgeous Pasta Queen Collection effortlessly adorns your kitchen like the beautiful pieces of art they are.


When I came to Instagram as The Pasta Queen, one of the first things I did was search for and find the Ruffoni page. I’d been collecting pots from this family-run Italian workshop for the past five years, and I was a huge fan. It didn’t take long before Giulia and I got on a call together, and the connection was immediate. We quickly realized that we shared a deep love for the finer things in life, including quality, practicality, beauty, and above all, a passion for food. It was a match made in Heaven, and before that first conversation even ended, we knew we had to do a Ruffoni/Pasta Queen collaboration. It was meant to be. 

The Pasta Queen Collection was born out of a love for functionality and beauty in the kitchen, and every single detail was designed especially with my pasta dishes and cooking style in mind. Each piece of the collection comes with a beautiful pasta crown, and these pots and pans were handcrafted in Italy just for you — because you’re worth it. Ruffoni has been handcrafting the highest quality copper cookware in its family-run workshop for generations. I chose them to create my collection because of our shared adoration for all things beauty and food and our passion for life and quality. Together, we created this heirloom set that can satisfy all your kitchen needs. While it has many functions and can cook anything and everything, the true purpose behind this hand-picked Pasta Queen Collection is to bring out the ultimate pasta master within you.
