Who ever heard of water exploding?
I had read something about someone taking a cup of boiling water out of the microwave and sticking a spoon in the liquid and the water exploded & caused some serious burns.
Did not think too much about it. Thought it was was of those one-in-a-million occurrences
THEN it happened to me. I was lucky. The cup of water I was boiling was still in the microwave when it exploded. So, I was protected. I started out with 1 cup (measured) of water and after the explosion there was about 1/8 of a cup of water left in the cup.
Thought to myself what might have been. It is very scary when a close call like this happens. And an eye-opener.
I now boil water in a pan on the stove. No more microwaving to get boiling water for Jell-o. In an effort to save time, a serious injury could have happened. And, really, it doesn’t take all that much longer to boil water on the stove.
Practice safe boiling out there!
