Is there a trick to making sure your DME goes in nice and smooth and doesn't clump? I'm not sure its the cause but my wheat beer looks a bit dark and I think it might be because there were so many clumps for so long when I was boiling.

When I use DME for making yeast starters I use a whisk and slowly add it mixing vigoursly.
I have never done a full extract batch I imagine its alot more extract!

When I was extract brewing, I put my DME into a large bowl so that I could pour slowly and keep stirring the entire time I was pouring it in. I found that as long as I kept up the constant stirring I never ran into many issues other than the steam making the DME stick to the edges of the bowl.
