My starter flask boils over on the cook-top pretty much every time I make one.   That's why I try to make my starters when The Mrs is out of town...

I have not had a boilover in years and yet after reading this post I came close yesterday.  Damn foam was 1" below the kettle lip but thankfully I just shut the element off and down it went.
