Whether you're boiling water for pasta or eggs, cooking soup or vegetables, reheating chilli or just warming some milk for a tasty mug of hot chocolate, the Pot Minder will sit quietly in the bottom of your pot ... until the water boils. Then, it makes a nice loud, rattling or chattering sound, to alert you that your water is boiled. Now it's time to turn down the heat, stir the contents of the pot - or pour your milk into the waiting mug.
This small disc measures two-and-a-half inches in diameter, and is made of thick, food-grade ceramic. You can safely leave it in a pot of boiling water until dinner is cooked, it won't affect the smell or taste of your food one bit. Now you can have as many things on the go as you want, safely washing dishes while your oatmeal cooks. The Pot Minder will keep an eye on things - and let you know when your breakfast needs attention. And when it's time to clean up, the pot minder can be submurged in water or wiped clean with a damp rag, and yes, it is also dishwasher-safe.
