World’s Greatest Pot Cost
World’s Greatest Post costs $19.99 plus $8.99 shipping for a total cost of $28.98. As of this writing, I haven’t seen this product in stores.
It may be a stretch to call any product the “World’s Greatest Pot” although admittedly this product at least sports a rather clever design. With a built-in strainer that swivels as you pour, the World’s Greatest Pot allows you to easily eliminate the sometimes-problematic step of straining water.
In addition to straining, you can also use the World’s Greatest Pot to steam veggies if you leave the strainer in the pot and add a small amount of water to the bottom. Featuring a non-stick surface, the pot, strainer, and lid are all dishwasher safe.
I first spotted World’s Greatest Pot back in February 2016, and by April it was gone. Now in early 2017 it is back and has fully jumped on the “copper” bandwagon with a copper version that is offered as a free upgrade.
One potential drawback with World’s Greatest Pot is that when cooking food with the strainer inside the pot, you lose some capacity because the strainer is smaller than the pot. Thus you’re limited to the size of the strainer, and not the size of the pot. We also aren’t told the exact size of the pot, although it doesn’t appear to be particularly large.
Perhaps a peripheral drawback is in the name itself. In an age where marijuana is legal in several states, a Google search for “world’s greatest pot” tends to return pages related to weed than this As Seen on TV product.
I worry that the size may be problematic for some users, but the overall design of World’s Greatest Pot is quite intriguing. I’m not sure that the use of copper provides any benefits over the version that was released in 2016.
Overall, if you don’t mind a medium-sized pot which is made smaller by the inclusion of a built-in strainer, you may find that the idea behind the World’s Greatest Pot is pretty clever and useful. Is it worth $30 to replace a standard $5 strainer? Only you can decide that.

Twice I ordered 2 pots for Christmas & paid with my credit card. Neither order ever arrived. Please either send my pots or return my money! (I would rather have the pots than a refund. PLEASE REPLY!
You’d be better off if you got a refund, count yourself lucky, I ordered two on 12/29/2019, it is now 3/29/2020, and both are in the trash, please get your money back, this product should never have made it to market.
Contact the distributor, not a review site. They probably don’t even see this!
Save your money, the pots are Junk, bought two on 12/29, on first use the non-stick coating started peeling into the pasta, throwing this junk in the trash.

This is a review site, not a place that sells products. You’ll need to check with the vendor and ask them.
