Default cooking milk-based soup

For the life of me, I can't figure out how to cook milk-based soups so that they don't burn/stick to the bottom of the pot. I have the non-stick pots, and it doesn't seem to matter. I have an electric stove, and when I bring it to a boil, I have it set on about 7-8 and then during the "cover and simmer" part I have it on about 5.

Are you just cooking canned, milk based soups? If so, I always cook those on minimum, never goes above 1 or 2, it takes a bit longer, but never burns!

I have burned a few of those myself -- once during my son's baptism party!!

I have learned that if is it a large amount or special occasion to warm it slowly in the crock pot. If it's just a normal meal or quick fix, then I keep it on 2-3 on the stove and I NEVER STOP STIRRING.

good luck!

Maybe try cooking them like you would chocolate? In a pan inside a pan of water.

cover and simmer is bringing it down to 2.
To NOT burn milk - it has to be REALLY low.
