Kitchen Tip: Keep pots from boiling over

My skills in the kitchen are definitely limited. The smoke detector often ends up in the cupboard, and a mess is inevitable. Pasta is one of the few dishes I can successfully pull off, but the meal usually follows a catastrophic boil over when I’m not looking. But not after this tip.

Place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot and let the water boil away. I’ve yet to have a mess erupt from my pasta water.

  1. Don’t try it with plastic spoons though. I’m embarrassed to admit I found out the hard way that it not only doesn’t stop the pot from boiling over, it also melts your spoon.
