Cooking isn’t exactly my area of expertise. If it involves more than a single pan to prepare, I’m probably not going to bother with it. Some days I even manage to mess up the simple act of boiling water. Not because it’s a difficult task, mind you. I just tend to wander off and forget about the water until half of it has boiled away. I’d stand there and watch it, but it’s so boring, and I have better things to do with my time than watch water boil. Apparently I need one of these BoilBuoys.
When you put a tea kettle on the stove, it whistles when the water boils. This little thing is based on the same idea. When the water boils, a chime rings out. There’s really not much else to it. The BoilBuoy has a weighted bottom to make it stay upright and is made from food- and heat-safe materials. For $10, I’ll probably buy one.
