Does anyone know of a siphoning Apparatus similar to the Auto-Siphon, but will handle hot wort?

Well, you shouldn't aerate or siphon your wort until it's cooled anyway. (There is alot of debate on hot side aeration or HSA but the general consensus is to not risk it). Cool it and then siphon it or pour.

You can see a picture of an autosiphon in my gallery that was used for this purpose. It warped the hell out of it, but it still works. I think it I would had clipped it to the side of the pot, with no wait to push down on the soft plastic, it would have been ok. The warped AS still works, believe it or not...
