I can see how this might work, but I'm still skeptical. This video has been making the rounds where a guy is making pasta, and he starts out in a normal fashion by putting water and pasta in the box and bringing it to a boil, but after it gets to a rolling boil, he moves the pan so that its only covering one side of the burner.
The result is that one side of the pot is at a higher temperature that moves the water and 'rolling boil' type of motion, but it moves the pasta along with it so that you don't have to sit there and stir it.
What do you think? Would you try it, or is this something we never really needed a hack for? How hard is it to cook pasta.
