I have a lo, hi, and 2-8. What should I simmer on? lo or #2? Last time I simmered on 4or 5 and it was not good.
Can you tell i"m not the primary meal preparer?
It depends on your particular stove and what you're making- but you want to turn it down to the point that it is just below boiling. If it's still bubbling/boiling, turn it down a little more. Generally, once something is boiling I can turn mine down somewhere in between lo and 2 to maintain it at a simmer level.
