Do you ever leave the kitchen for a few minutes and find that your pan is boiling over, making a huge mess on your stove? That has happened to me on more than one occasion – especially when I’m boiling milk to make a matcha latte.

When I read about the Vortex Overboil Ring from Bink Davies, I was really curious to see how it would work. The raised edges are supposed to keep liquid from boiling over, and because of the design, it will fit on a variety of different sizes of pans.

It’s made from silicone (not plastic), so it’s safe to use up to 500° F. That was important for me as we’re really trying to phase plastic out of our kitchen and move to safer materials.

I put it to the test when I was making noodles for the girls for lunch. I turned the heat up on high and let it go. It worked like a charm. It kept the water inside the pan and because it’s made from silicone, the seal around the pan kept any of it from leaking around the edges of the ring.

Now if only they made a smaller ring that would fit my small saucepan (the one I usually boil milk in), I’d be a happy camper!

silicone-lidI also go to try another one of Bink Davies’ products – the Cherry Blossom Silicone Lid. I don’t see the particular one I have on their website, but it’s similar to this one.

I had never seen anything like it before. You can put it on any smooth-rimmed stainless steel, glass, plastic or ceramic container to keep it sealed. I tried turning the lid once I put it on the bowl and it wouldn’t budge, so I know there was a good seal there.

It’s such a great idea to use this instead of plastic wrap! Much safer and more eco-friendly. Plus it’s pretty :-) I need to get a Large one for my bigger bowls that don’t have lids with them.

I noticed that there are a lot of cool products on the Bink Davies website. Go check it out!

What an awesome site! I want one of everything for the kitchen, starting with all the sizes of those silicone lids. I didn’t think I’d ever get away from plastic wrap to seal bowls & baking dishes.
