One thing we have definitely learned; if you put the pan on the right front burner, it will boil much faster if you turn on the right front burner. You can write that down if necessary, it’s been proven. If instead you turn on the one behind it, it will get warmer in time, but it will probably never boil. We have tested this theory for up to an hour, and can vouch for it.
you do, and you’ll clean it up!)

the stove control panel, and actually executed the knob one quarter turn
clockwise, you can expect superior results.
is so much energy and cacophony you expect that the pot will shatter into chards
of flaming metal. The ambient music in the house is gradually drowned to

It is fierce! A sound track from Industrial Light and Magic and Dream Works! It
reaches the point where you fold your legs under you so you won’t get burned
when the pot jumps off the stove and make a break for the front door! Scary!
What’s gonna happen? Oooooooooooo.

anyway,) you decide it will all be alright and drop back into lethargy.
After all, your modern home is equipped with the ultimate device for this
situation. After a few hours of boiling, all the water is gone, the pan
now begins to make a strong odor which in turn sets off the smoke
detector, which in it’s wisdom, wakes you from inert to alert in an
abrupt transition! It’s just another
of modern science. It’s good to be alert. The world needs lerts. At least your
nose isn’t dry any more. There’s just that awful burned smell…
