I bet you're not looking for this... but:
- don't start to boil water with salt in it, add salt after it boils, right before you add your ingredients.
- always boil your water with a cover, but only before you add anything. Once you add stuff to your boiling water never cover it
- boiling water doesn't care what kind of vessel you use, stainless steel or paper, the water will boil
- don't let boiling water dry out... when it dry's out bad things happen
