No More Watched Pot

 

boiling beeper

We’ve all done it: Set a pot to boil on the stove and gone off to do other things, forgetting about it as the water bubbles away. With a BoilingBeeper, those days are over. Just drop the gadget in your pot (it floats), and when the water starts to boil, you’ll hear a loud, repetitive beep. Take it out (it turns off when dry) and add food to cook. $19.95, boilingbeeper.com
