  1. Thanks for these kitchen hacks. I did not know that putting a wooden spot over a pot of boiling water could reduce its tendency to boil over. With regards to onions, it is not only with potatoes. Because of their strong flavors and acids,it is generally not good to store onions close to foods (Milk, eggs, fruits,ripe bananas, etc). The foods tend to pick up the flavors and they end up smelling not proper or spoilt (example of milk and potatoes). I learned most of these while doing research for my kitchen designs ideas posts
