It is a very small thing, but I am feeling very happy with our kitchen things right now.

The stove in our new house has a burner labeled "turbo boil flex", and I had fairly quickly discovered what the "turbo boil" part was. When turned on high, it produces quite a little inferno that does, indeed, boil water quite quickly. Combined with the "turbo pot" that I got a while back -- which is basically the result of a bay-area-tech-company electrical engineer noticing that flat-bottomed pots aren't particularly great for picking up heat from flames, and also noting that the tech industry has a solution for this, and thus quitting his job and starting a little company selling pots with finned heat exchangers on the bottom -- and it boils water quite quickly indeed.

Yesterday, though, I happened to turn the burner down to "low" and discovered what the "flex" part of the name meant. When turned down to low, the outer burner ring turns off, and there's only a flame from a little "button" in the middle of the burner that's barely bigger than a candle flame. It turns out that's exactly enough to keep 4 inches of water in the large turbo pot bubbling gently in the middle, which is exactly what I want for simmering bone broth overnight.

This makes me very happy.
