Don't feel bad. One night I turned off the presto pot and went out to dinner. Came back to find that I'd turned the knob the wrong way and I had something like 4 Lbs of wax simmering at 400 degrees. I'd turned the knob the wrong direction.:undecided

I did this same thing not that long ago. On big orders I add color and FO to the presto. I was in dire need of smokes so I turned off (or so I thought) the pot to run up to texico. Came home to my house filled with smoke and the nasties smell you could imagine. The next day I melted all the wax out and in the bottom of the pot was this thick black gooey shit that I had to scrape off. I ended up ruining the pesto pot. I scraped to much and all the teflon coating came with it. :mad:
