Watch the pot boil!

    Newer Older

    Another cool overkill use of technology. Rather than wait for the pot to boil downstairs, I pointed the webcam at it, went upstairs, zoomed in on it, and when it starts boiling I run downstairs to put in the spaghet. Bull Mancuso would be proud!

      I guess they were wrong about how a watched pot never boils. Or at least there is a clause about WiFi not applying to the rule.

      What kind of sauce are you having?

      How do you see INSIDE the pot? You need an overhead cam, doncha?

      Sue, excellent point.

      If you were to see the picture "live" you could see the steam rising from the top.

      And if the pot were boiling over you'd see that too.

      Mickeleh, the usual, meatballs in tomato gravy.

      Reminds me of Quentin Stafford-Fraser's original Coffee Pot Cam at Cambridge :-)

      lol. Do you use cam and a 19inch flatscreen instead of a mirrow ;-)

      Um, 1991 called and it wants its pot back

      I could see the picture live if you'd invite me over for dinner! Hey, is there pot-boiling RSS?

      Barilla is good. De Cecco is even better.
