It’s True!

Frugal

Adding vinegar to your pot of water will prevent it from boiling over! I don’t know what it is, this plague that makes my pots always boil over… but they do. And since I have a glass cooktop, it sizzles very loudly and makes a huge mess.

So I tried adding vinegar with a full pot of boiling potatoes and eggs (I’m making potato salad, by the way). And the pots did not boil over! Woooo! No sprinting back to the kitchen to frantically turn down the heat and mop up boiling water!

I know, I know, I get excited over the strangest things… that and Kohler faucets… lol.

    I have had this problem also. Thanks for the solution. It really does work.

    I love this idea. I am always ending up with pots boiling over when I cook potatoes. Does it change the taste of the potatoes or whatever is cooking?
