an FYI

This was my favorite pot. It's the perfect size; it's the most used in my collection

Tonight, I put some water on the stove to boil. Went downstairs and forgot about the pot. Realized pot was on the stove when I heard a strange sound.

Thank goodness I hadn't caused a fire. What I did cause was this

The pot got so hot that the welding holding on the copper bottom MELTED and came right off

The pot doesn't sit flat anymore; not that we can use it anyways.

It was neat to see how the welding stuff(what is that called? lol) melted and hardened. It looks just like tin foil; just thicker

So next time you put a pot on the stove, don't leave the kitchen!!

I always do that with boiled rice. I burn it most of the time because I walk out of the kitchen to do something else and don't realize it until I smell the burning rice. I also now set a time.
