How to prevent the sides my pot from scalding over a gas range?

Hi All,

I have a gorgeous gas range in my new house, but I need some tips on how to manage it. I find that any liquids I set to boil tend to burn from the pot's edge first and then move toward the centre, and in so doing often scald or burn bits of whatever's in the pot to the side of the pot.

Any tips or suggestions on how to best manage a pot over a gas range?
