I agree, Jamei, and I find it fascinating to learn about these things. I must 
add, though, it's necessary to pay attention, whether one is sighted or not. My 
husband, a supposedly intelligent man (phd) has burnt the bottom out of at 
least two saucepans when steaming veggies because he's been distracted (not 
that I was any help, not notcing what he was doing until I smelled that horrid 
burnt veggie-pan smell. I myself in the past allowed water to boil out of 
takettles and burnt holes in the bottom.
