About Stella

Stella is a beautiful shining star. Named after my great auntie who loved and cared for everyone in our family, this frying pan will make sure that whatever pasta dish you make for the family, you can also serve it beautifully by bringing it to the table directly in the gorgeous pan. 

I love to use Stella to make and display my spaghetti with seafood and Ragu sauce in all its beauty for my family. Stella can take the show on her own and be presented at the dinner table as a centerpiece. The gorgeous lid with its knob in the shape of a Pasta Queen crown holding pasta adds to her magnificent beauty and helps her shine.

Slightly larger than Pinuccia, the chef pan, this shallow frying pan can cook almost anything, whether you’re throwing together a delicious pasta carbonara or making gratin vegetables as a side. This high-quality cookware also sears and simmers proteins for an impressive main course. Stella helps you adjust to the needs of each dish, as you can grab the two handles and shift her from the stovetop to the oven for your pasta bake or even a fruit cobbler.

This piece complements the copper cookware in the Pasta Queen Collection while adding a pan that’s more spacious for your larger cooking needs. Stella shines in her own right with her lustrous hand-hammered clad stainless steel, and her aluminum core gives your cooking ideal heat conductivity.

THE PASTA QUEEN COLLECTION
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.

History

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.
