Boiling over

The wooden spoon, due to its rugged texture, has plenty of surface area to absorb water bubbles.

Hi everyone! Here in Northeast India, I am about to have my morning meal. Actually it's late and this pandemic and stay home has changed our routine. This morning I came across a very important article for me and thought of sharing it with you MyLotters. That, keeping or balancing a wooden spoon on top of a pot prevents the water from boiling over. I don't cook much but whenever I cook I mess up the stove. Now I hope this technique will help me cook like a real chef clean and tidy.
