This thing is beyond amazing. I have an old rice cooker I use when my hands are full, a one-switch type with a metal lid. It cooks very hot and if I add even slightly too much water, it boils over. I filled it up with rice and water before I realized how high the level was. On a whim, I decided to replace the lid of the rice cooker with the Kuhn-Rikon Spill Stop I had received a few days earlier. Yes, the rice cooker boiled that water and rice massively, and it would have boiled over had I not used my new, favorite gadget as a lid for the rice cooker! Not a drop spilled. I have since used it for many things that I would have had to babysit before, like pasta in boiling water or stock being reduced. I have also used it as splash guard over a deep fryer, a saute pan, and to prevent splatters in the microwave. Because it is vented in the center and the""flower"" seals itself flat when the boiling stops, if you cook something you are trying to really infuse with flavor (navy beans boiled in seasoned ham stock, for example), it creates a vacuum for as long as it remains sealed in place off the heat, so the flavors really get absorbed into the food. It is a bit expensive for what it is, but it is so handy and durable, it will quickly pay for itself. Mine is green, and I love it
I was doubtful this would work, I saw a demo and I was still doubtful. I got it home and I can't believe I've made it this far in life without this item. Try as I might to stop it, my pasta always boils over. This item stopped the boil overs and let me cook worry, spill and clean up free! Frankly I am shocked this has not been around longer. Do not stop to think about it, if you are considering it, just buy it.... You will love it
I bought this item because my chicken soup always boils over when I first bring it to a boil. This item is amazing! I left it on the whole time my soup was cooking and it never boiled over! It's worth every penny and I definitely recommend it.
This might be my favorite new kitchen gadget -- it absolutely works just as described. I've used it boiling pasta and potatoes and it completely prevents boil-overs. Now I can be doing something else while the pasta cooks and not have to worry about checking for boil-overs or having to clean up the boil-over mess!
This is an amazing product. I've used it for potatoes, oatmeal and pasta. My college son even uses it for everything he boils! It doesn't matter what your water level is, it won't boil over and make a mess of your stove. Just place it on top of the pot, remove it when you're done and toss it in the dishwasher.
We bought this yesterday and used it last night cooking pasta. My husband was mesmerized! Kept saying this is wonderful! It really works, we will be getting more and look out everyone, Christmas is coming. NO more spill overs on the stove, when I walk off and forget somethin
I cook a lot of pasta and is such a mess when it boils over which it always does. Bought this several weeks ago and have used it several times and was totally amazed that it did not seep over the sides. Works as advertised. Wonderful product and keeps cook top clean!
This lid is worth it's weight in gold! I've used it for pasta, rice, and potatoes, all of which I always have boil-over problems with, no matter how much pot-watching I do. Never again. The lid seemed a little pricey so I hesitated to buy it. Finally, I was tired of scraping gunk off the cooktop. Do not make my mistake. BUY IT NOW
I've tried the tablet think you drop in your pot to keep pasta from boiling over and it only worked about 90% of the time. Plus, it gets very hot and breaks easily.
I never heard of this spill-stop lid until I did some contract work at Sur La Table and looked at the catalog. Seeing it on sale was a no-brainer when deciding to purchase it. I'm so glad I did!
Not only does it work fabulously 100% of the time, but it's colorful and stylish. I don't have to worry about it getting too hot to touch and it's flexible, so it won't break. Clean-up is easy since it's dish-washer safe.
If you hate cleaning up boil-overs on your stove, you need this product
This is one of the best gadgets I have ever bought. I buy many new kitchen gadgets, some work and some don't. This one gets used in my kitchen multiple times every week. It lets me cook pasta, potatoes or any other boiled item without having to constantly watch the pot to prevent boil over. It also allows me to keep the pot covered and maintain the boil. Without the Stop I would have to uncover my pot and keep the heat high to maintain a boil. With the Stop I can keep the pot covered, reduce the heat and still maintain a vigorous boil
What a wonderful product! I got this for my birthday and I love it. I always let my potatoes and pasta boil over. No more!!!!! I got the large on as the pots I normally use are at least six inches and it works great!
Not only do I have one in every size, everyone who has seen mine has purchased them as well. With a white cooktop every little spill shows but with this Spill Stopper I can cook rice, oatmeal or pasta without hovering around the range in an attempt to ensure no spill over occurs. Would highly recommend this product!
Like others, I was a little doubtful when I purchased this product and thought it was a little pricey. But I thought if it actually works, it will be worth it. Well, it DOES work and it IS worth it. No more spill-over from oatmeal, rice and pasta. I had stopped cooking oatmeal because it always left a big spill-over mess on the sides of my pot and stove top. No more messes! I use it multiple times a week. This would also make a nice little holiday gift for friends who are cooks.
Who hasn't something boil over while slightly distracted? I saw great reviews on this item online and it seems like something that might help solve the overflow problem. It also has a slim profile which I imagine should make it easy to store - a plus for anyone working with a small kitchen. I might not have purchased it today but the current sale was too good to pass up - almost $10 lower than any other retailer.
I've purchased this item before and loved how well it works. Unfortunately, I lost this when I brought it to a family pot luck party and need to get a replacement. However, since it went on sale at this time, I took the opportunity to purchase a few extra for gifts as well as to try some other sizes.

Does this allow enough water to remain in the pan to cook items like rice?
