I have always used a glass (pyrex?) or stainless "boil over preventer" after I
spent two days cleaning my first batch out of the stove. While this is quite
effective at preventing boil over, I've wondered what effect it might be having
on my hot break. I'm not real sure what to expect from a hot break so I can't
tell if it's making any difference. Any suggestions out there?
