Farb. Pots so smooth - boiled water 'explodes'
I have 3 new Farberware pots that have spouts & strainer lids - that I love... BUT, I think their surfaces are so smooth that boiled water often doesn't break the surface so that when you put a spoon in - or food... and break the surface yourself, it kind of explodes. I use the term explodes loosely, because it doesn't quite explode... but it does seem to erupt forcefully upward... much like they say happens when one boils water in a microwave. Pretty dangerous!
