Only about 32 fluid ounces (1 liter) of water is needed and there’s no need to stir or watch the pasta while cooking. You can store pasta in it when not using it to cook pasta.

    I haven’t tested this product, but backpackers and campers frequently cook pasta this way by putting their pasta in a Nalgene bottle, then pouring boiling water from a kettle into it. If the water isn’t at a full boil, it takes longer and might cool too fast.

    You can do this with a quart mason jar, or just try turning off the heat after bringing your pasta and water to a full boil, and covering with a lid. I do it that way, and it does indeed yield perfect, non-sticking pasta that doesn’t boil over.

    Boiling water in a teakettle or covered pot is a much more efficient use of heat. Haybox cooking is even better.

Spaghetti came out al dente at best, and the smaller noodles were about the same. I drained the first batch of water and added hot to make softer pasta, using an electric kettle.
