How to Reduce Boilovers
Boilovers can cause a real mess in the kitchen and can even ruin a recipe, costing you time and money. Here's a simple way to reduce the likelihood of pot boilovers—it's not foolproof, so make sure to keep your eye on the stove.
Dip your finger in cooking oil and run it around the inside of a pan (used for boiling). It greatly reduces boilovers. Butter works great, too. Bubbling liquid won’t climb up the fat to get out of the pan. It’s not foolproof so make sure to keep your eye on it, but it cuts down on the boilovers in the kitchen.
