GIVEAWAY & Review: Charles Viancin Overboil Ring and Silicone Lid

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was pretty happy to have the opportunity to review the Charles Viacin Overboil Ring because it does fulfill a need I have, which is to stop overboiling. See, I have this problem that I tend to turn up the heat  to high on the stove top when I am boiling pasta or making soup, which causes the overboiling. Or I am just walking away and too busy sit there and watch the pot (A watched pot never boils, they say!) So, inevitably I end up boiling over the liquids and have a stove top full of sloppy wetness to clean up, not to mention the overboil that burned on to the glass cooktop. Sure, I could turn down the heat and stay in the kitchen. But now I don't have to because I have this overboil and it really does work. It basically acts like you are extending your pot and as a shield to catch any boils that pop up.

As a surprise to me, they also included the silicone lid pictured above and I will tell you more about at the bottom.


Product Description from Bink Davies


The unique design of the lid fits a variety of pots, making it easy to match your cooking needs. Other key features of the overboil lid include:

Raised edges prevent liquids from boiling over into your stovetop Central opening allows you to stir your food without worrying about spills Serving is simple without worrying about difficult clean-up afterward Anti-spill shield prevents food or liquid splattering outside of the pot

The OverBoil Ring retails from $11.99-17.99.



It is available in either blue or violet and in sizes M or L.

They sent me the Blue in a M size.


This is the Charles Viancin Cherry Blossom Silicone Lid in a 9" size. Now, I couldn't find that particular lid design on the Bink Davies website, but they do have others that function the same way in a Banana Leaf, Hibiscus, Sunflower, and Lilypad.


The lids fit over the top of a bowl and you gently press down to push the air out, creating a vacuum effect and making it airtight. This works great for those bowls you don't have a lid for but would like to cover the food in those bowl.

On the packaging they showed that you could hold it by he lid in the air and it wouldn't come unattached. Not that you are going to be doing that a lot or at all, but it's a fun experiment. So, I tried it with 2 empty bowls. The heavier bowl it did not work for, but with my lighter stainless steel bowl it did. Now, I don't think I would do it with food inside, but it does work.

So…. I'm a cook who turns the heat up too high and who meanders over to the couch when I should stand at the stove. Maybe we're twins and we don't know it? That's why I need this ring!

And I really love the bonus they gave you. Too cool!
