My electric stove doesn't get a strong boil going, resulting in very little foam at the start. Although I did have a boil over last night because I also do the lid until the last second before boil, but had to run out of the room for a minute and then it started to boil. Even without the vigorous boil and foam, my beers still seem to taste like beers.

Thanks, that was $40 I wasn't going to spend today. I always thought they were more like $80.
