Large Pot. Depending on its height, a large pot can either be the kind you'd think of for boiling pasta water, or a shorter soup casserole-style pot. Regardless of the height, when we think of a large pot, it's generally 12 inches in diameter and used for boiling or cooking large quantities.

What's the difference between a pot and a pan?

Pots usually have two small handles located on opposite sides of the pot. Pans, on the other hand, tend to have just one long handle. For the serious cook, another major difference between pots and pans is their purpose in the kitchen. Chefs use pots mainly for liquids, such as making soups or boiling water for pasta.

Can you boil pasta in a non stick pot?

You don't need a nonstick pan to boil water for pasta. Use a stainless steel pot on high heat to boil water—you can add a little oil to the water to keep pasta from sticking to the bottom or sides, if you need to. Don't overheat your nonstick pans. Turn off the heat as soon as you are done cooking.
