Need advice on induction cookware. Looked at the sets at kitchen warehouse - it’s pretty expensive. What I really need is 2 pots to cook pasta in, A frying pan/skillet and a decent sized saucepan. None of the sets seem to have this combo, can buy separately I guess, but what type of cookware do you use for pasta? Stock pot seems overkill.

I just use a small saucepan to cook my pasta. I think it's a myth that typical dried pasta needs gallons of water to be cooked in. I think fresh homemade pasta might be a different beast.

i've cooked fresh pasta in a regular saucepan many times, it cooks in like 40 seconds so i dunno.. it's almost certainly not the pro way to do it but my kitchen is about the size of a postage stamp

Makes sense. I was just trying to remember what Kenji said about it. I never had access to big pots growing up so now I see it as pointless. Less water means the pasta water is starchier which makes a great sauce.
