Come to a Boil Faster by Lidding your Pot | Tuesday's Tip of the Day!
They say, “a watched pot will never boil,” and quite frankly that is true because in order to see the water there probably isn’t a lid on it! Right? Ok, so this may seem obvious but it constantly surprises me with how impatient people are when waiting for water to boil. One simple and effective way to bring water – or any liquid for that matter (see “side note” below) – to a quick boil is simply by putting a lid on it! Your pot or pan doesn’t have a lid? Foil, a baking sheet or even a large sauté pan will do just as well! Just keep in mind that when removing the lid, it is hot so act with caution!
So whatever you want to simmer or boil, tonight is the night to put this new information to test!
As a side note, you should never cover hot oil or alcohol…let that come to the proper temperature naturally with a little patience.
