Prevent Boiling Pot Spill-Over
Prevent Boiling Pot Spill-Over

If you put a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water, it won't boil over

I didn't know, I will have to give it a try!

In response to some questions, she wrote:
I find that I have to place the wooden spoon over the pot BEFORE the water starts to boil.

Also...the temperature that you set your stove on has to be regulated as always. If the temp is at the maximum, beyond what is needed to simply boil the water, than it will boil over no matter what.

But as you can see in the picture, the spoon will prevent the water from boiling over as it rises to the top and will keep the water from boiling over as long as you ensure that the temperature is only has high as it needs to go in order to boil the water. The wooden spoon trick works to prevent the water from spilling over as it reaches the top of the pot.
