I watch that show too. Wish I had that tip before I got a new stove but I don't need it with the new stove , it has a simmer burner

Great tip, thank you. Our new cooker is not too bad but the ones at school are terrible.

Great (ouch, a pun) idea!

I sometimes use my big cast iron skillet as a 'flame tamer'. I just used it instead of a double boiler when I made lemon curd.

Miles ahead of ya here, I`v been using a modified Bread rack on legs that sits above my burner to do exactly that, it`s one of my Must-Have kitchen "tools" that no-one seems to sell anywhere?

so I made my own ;)

That's what I was thinking, a skillet/ griddle / flat iron pan.

I can get a simmer burner (and wok jet) for my range, I haven't really found a need for a smaller burner or using a pan, for some reason I can make rice in a 1 1/2 quart sauce pan (an old Ekco).
