How will no-break pasta save your day?
Due August 4th, 2015 - While pasta is pleasure to eat, it can be a little bit of a pain to cook. In order for it to fit in the pot, you have to break it…sending shards of spaghetti all over your kitchen. You also need haul out the big pots, and sometimes, a couple of them. Then there’s the cleanup: the pots, the pans, and that strainer-colander thing, it takes over your entire sink. And don’t forget those tiny pieces of spaghetti that went flying all over the kitchen…if you can ever find them all!
Breaking pasta is only an inconvenience, but we need fewer hassles – not more. We need ideas that make our lives easier, not harder. And that’s where Pot-Sized pasta comes to the rescue. It’s the spaghetti that you don’t have to break. It’s five inches long instead of the traditional 10 inches. So it fits right in the pot. There are no messy little pieces flying everywhere. It simply makes things easier: right out of the box and right into the pot.
The kitchen is often the busiest, craziest part of the house, especially at dinnertime. Add in flying shards of pasta, heavy pots of water, and that strainer-colander thing and you have a recipe for more than just spaghetti and meatballs.
Create a 15-30 second video that showcases the unpredictable things that can happen when regular pasta is on the menu. Show how Mueller’s or Ronco Pot-Sized pasta can save the day…or maybe just the meal!
Note: While you only need to submit a video featuring either Mueller’s or Ronco Pot-Sized pasta, the Sponsor will require any winning video to submit a cut for each brand (Mueller’s and Ronco). We suggest saving time by shooting all necessary footage at the same time.
