  1. I have a customer who is looking for a thing to put in a pot to prevent water from boiling over. Anyone know if we still have this or where I can find one?

    It was sold a few years back - we don't have them anymore but maybe someone here has one they will part with..
  3. thanks for such a quick reply. At least I can let my customer know it is no longer available but I'm looking to find one.
  4. The Boil COntrol. I do hope they come back with that sooner than later... That is the one retired item most people want back. Wish I could help...I have been on the search for them too!

    There was a thread a while back in which someone posted a practically identical item they found from some other housewares company.

    Until you find one try this: rub butter along the top edge of your pan/pot. The butter is supposed to stop the boil over. By the way, the boil control was made out of metal, which is probably why they discontinued it. Metal and non stick pans don't mix well and they were probably replacing a lot of our cookware because of this.

    Just so you know, the boil control didn't actually keep anything from boiling over. It just made lots of noise when the pan contents began to boil so YOU didn't let it boil over.

    I have 2 boil controls. One is in the package, and one I did use once....but would be willing to part with both. PM or email me if you are interested.
  9. REALLY? Hum....I sure didn't know this tidbit! I remember selling these too. They were a "Hot" item back then. Pun intended. :p
  10. I just read somewhere that to prevent boil-evers put a metal spoon in your pot?
    I've never tried it but thought I'd share.
  11. I just talked to a friend of mine about it. Hers is metal and she figured that when the water boils the cold metal brings down the temperature so that it won't boil over.
    I also had many people, when I first started, ask about this and they said it was red and plastic. They absolutly loved it. So every time I get and inquiry about it, I email HO about it.

    My solution? I always have boiled the water on HIGH and then added my pasta. It quickly started to boil again then I place the heat on medium. It seems to keep the simmer temp better and my pasta cooks perfectly every time. This method is perfect for both electric and gas stoves.
  12. thanks to you all for the quick answers.
