So I set out to disprove last week that a watched pot never boils…in fact it does and if you don’t watch it closely enough it will boil dry, make whatever you are trying to cook taste funny and quite possibly ruin your pot.
And of course no one will want to do the dishes…Ahem. So, I remembered seeing one of those annoying Facebook videos go through my feed and by some random luck managed to find it again. It said if you boiled lemons in a pot that looked like mine and then let them cool it all you would have to do is rinse away the burned gunk and your pot would be better than new!
So I figured I had nothing to lose…I chopped some lemons and boiled away!
Of course the video was exaggerating a little bit–I mean it is Facebook after all, right? After it boiled, cooled down and I dumped the whole mess and rinsed out the pot the black stuff was still there…but with a little scrubbing it did go away! And look my pot looks much nicer now!
Not perfect, but I can cook with it again. So, I’m not sure if I could have had the same results if I had just soaked and scrubbed, but who knows?
So what do you think? Facebook fail or Facebook win?
