Today’s hack is super simple but highly effective. If you are boiling pasta, potatoes, etc, place a knife or wooden spoon across the pot to prevent the water from boiling over and making a mess. 🍝
I had never heard of this tip, until @kimcankickit shared it recently. I put it to the test for the first time last night, and it worked like a charm. My pot never boiled over, and I didn’t have to stand there adjusting the heat, or stirring down the bubbles like I usually do. 🙌 If you use a knife instead of wooden spoon, just remember that the metal gets hot, so use a hot pad or towel to remove it.
Yay for little things that make life easier! ✌️- Jess
