Did you ever wonder why the wooden spoon hack keeps your pot from boiling over?
Wooden spoons are a necessary tool in the kitchen and they are used quite often. Not just for cooking but also used for a kitchen hack.
How to Keep your Pot from Boiling Over?
Place the wooden spoon over your pot to keep it from boiling upper & leave it there. As the water is boiling and the bubbles come in contact with the spoon, they’ll burst because the spoon surface is rough & dry. It’s best to lay your wooden spoon over the top of your pot before it starts to boil.
Be careful if you go to grab the wooden spoon, as it may be hot depending on the thickness of the wooden spoon.
Here are a Few Tips:
- it may also depend on what are you boiling (e.g., veggies, soup, pasta, broth)
- it does not work with an only plain water pot
- put the spoon on it earlier will make a difference
- it will not work if you turn the heat up all the way.
Will the wooden spoons get ruined?
No! As long as you make sure they are clean, dried well, and seasoned.
