How to Prevent a Pot from Boiling Over...

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

This week's tip is an easy one, but one I was always forgetting to do....

The next time you're boiling pasta or potatoes or anything in a pot that usually has a tendency to boil over and make a mess on your stove, just place a wooden spoon directly across the top of the pot.  As you can see from the photo above, this works...No more messes to clean up!

Enjoy your day! 


  1. Thank you Lois, I too always forget. I'm always cleaning up my stove, I can save myself some time. :).

  2. I knew this, lol... I never think of it. Serves me right to keep cleaning my burners...
