Good pics as always. Please remember to never leave the stove unattended. Keep a lid
next to your pot to cover it in case of fire. Small fire extinguishers are cheap. Keep one in your kitchen

Good points, Brian. It's also good to know that plain old baking soda will extinguish small grease fires, so keep a box handy.
