comment Why add salt to the water when cooking pasta?
It needs to be quite salty to make a significant move, but the effect can be measurable. It's roughly 3 tablespoons per quart to move the boiling point one full degree Fahrenheit. Which is somewhere in the same ballpark of boiling point change as 1/8 of a mile.
