My yeast starter boiled over while I was moving the flask off the burner. Hot wort probably feels similar to napalm.

Rotate 'em, the cold one goes on the hand and when it warms up, get another cold one and start drinking the one that warmed up some and so on and so forth until the pain goes away

Never ever put butter, lard or oil on a burn.

Works good. Try it next time you get burnt. Takes the pain away.

If boiling liquid spills on one of those Oven Gloves and absorbs in it can do even more damage to your skin than if you weren't wearing one. It's better to use a glove that can handle heat that is also water resistant...

Ask me how I know!
