    Hi, my friend wants a small pasta pot with insert. All those I've seen are the 6 quart size. I emailed a bunch of NYC restaurant places, nothing. The Bowry Kitchen Supply even said no.

    Anyone know if this thing even exists? He lives alone and that's why he wants a small one.

    Since pasta should be cooked in a LOT of rapidly boiling water, he really shouldn't get a small pot. He can always cook a small amount of pasta in a big pot (just not the other way around :D ).

    Yes, I TOLD him that, he just wants a small pot. Can't talk him into a bigger pot.

    Maybe if we went to Macy's or REstaurant Depot and saw the perfect pot.....

    THansk.

    You can cook the pasta in any size pot (big or small) and drain it into a collendar (did I spell that right?)
