I do the same with my eggs. They'll continue to cook.

My mom and I love our Circulon Pasta Pots

I'm new to this site and a bit late in joining this forum, but wanted to share with you my experience with pasta pots. I bought a Circulon Pasta Pot for my mom more than a year ago and she still talks about it like I gave it to her yesterday. Her favorite thing to do is call me to tell me the new uses she has found for it...her favorite is cooking vegetables, in fact, she rarely uses it for pasta. She talked so much about her pot, that I decided to buy one. I love it and use it at least once a week and usually not for pasta. I was concerned that the capacity (I think it's 5 qts) wouldn't be large enough for pasta, but so far it has worked wonderfully. What I really love about the Circulon version is that the lid locks on so that you can drain hot water with your hands and wrists well out of the way of steam or water. I've never had a boil-over using this pot and also haven't felt that the holes have slowed the cooking time.

That's my 2 cents...hope it helps someone.

Oh, and after a year the nonstick interior is still working great.

Hi lovetocook.. welcome to the thread! *s*

In essence that is what I said early on. The circulon pasta pot goes anywhere from $ 49-to- 99 dollars..depending on where you buy it.. The pasta pots offered by tv pitchmen are not worth it.. by the time you pay the shipping and handling, you could have bought a good one...
As you said, none are big enough for a pound of pasta.. you need plenty of boiling water for pasta...
