This for me is just one too many parts to worry about. See Occam's Law. KISG (keep it simple Greg). Unless, of course, the thing is a dirty little mess that needs close examination to solve. Some things are more or less than grey--find the black parts and the white parts. The cook should always watch his/her own porfolio most carefully--for boil overs or some horrible stench that might be in the making. IMO
