With the two cook tops running at max I am able to get a decent rolling boil but have not had a boil over yet and I get a good hot break. You don't even want to put a lid on this however.
You also have to be careful to stir slowly and avoid any tidal wave effect and definitely no whirlpooling. I run the mash tun directly into the pot via the outlet valve and keep it right up to the lip during the hr. plus boil. When it boils down about 1/2" from max level it translates into about 5.5 gallons in the fermenter after it passes through the hop rocket and the chiller plate.
