:/ ot OP, but I mean most of the stuff I cook doesn't need constant attention. Might as well sit down if I'm just going to spend 15 minutes staring into the abyss anyway.

It's not Hell's Kitchen. There isn't a string of things coming in and going out LOL.

I mean, putting something in the oven that's going to cook for a few hours is different than leaving something on the stove on high. Even if it's simmering on low, at least be in the same room so you can see or hear if something goes wrong.

Most all of my kitchens have been almost directly attached to my living rooms.

I cook most things on medium, and can hear if, like, a pot is spilling over or smth.

Should OP have put something on high? No. Ofc not. But sitting in the other room while something is boiling or something for a bit isn't the crime this guy is making it out to be.

Some stuff I've done on a low stove has been on there for up to eight hours. I check the water level periodically but I'm not sitting in the kitchen for eight hours.

One would think boiling beets didn’t need to be monitored either, but here we are. As someone who has worked in multiple kitchens, and cooks almost every night, I hope you never have to eat those words.

Not a very good cook if you feel the need to stand over the pot the entire time instead of preparing the rest of the meal or anything, guessing nothing ever gets out at the same time in your kitchen, or half the food is cold

Why wouldn’t I prepare the rest of the meal? I said don’t go chill on the couch in another room when you’ve got something on the stove, but I guess you needed an easy way to try and insult me for no reason.

So salty. Ofc you'd be a cook.

Thanks, I already paid my dues. Caught my burners on fire, heated the oil so high it smoked (wrong burner).

I'm glad you have the time, energy, training, and vigilance to stand over your stove until everything is cooked to immaculate perfection. I hope you never falter or make mistakes. ;)
