  1. It feels almost as though this type of conversation has been had before over certain subjects over the last couple years...i can't quite put my finger on it though.....

    Trader Joe's Products (2017–)

    Well, the long stem italian artichokes are discontinued...shame, they were amazing
  3. I read 7 or 8 issues and the only one that had any true value was #1, so it's no real surprise that it's going for good $. I did not enjoy any of the others. It was too esoteric for my taste. I do find their articles online generally interesting...and i do feel terrible for all the writers.

    Salted Pasta Water: How Much Salt.

    Scientific trials found here: http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/05/how-salty-should-pasta-water-be.html apparently 1-2% max. OCean is 3.5% and gross. I just go by eye. And no salt at all ends up with lifeless sad pasta, no matter how salty the condiment is.

    Cuisinart Recall

    Submitted 12/16. immediate email confirming request. No blade yet. Just called them, and it sounds like they are being inundated with calls asking for status as she asked me right awya "status or new claim" when i said "status" she gave me a predetermined message about how they're working as fast as possible to manufacture blades and have no ETA/updates to provide.
  6. i've been following the Spinzall and do hope it gets made, if only to reward Dave for his hard work... however, i fail to see how extending the funding time at an increased price will lead to it being funded, if it didn't fund at the lower price. This is especially true since people are not pre-paying for it, meaning having the funds now isn't required anyhow. If you wanted it in a week from now, you'd want it now at a lower price.
  7. thanks for the reply...and very interesting. Both my friend and I have noticed the difference when quick releasing meat on a stovetop PC...but, we haven't done side by sides so we might be deceived!

    Unusual & unknown kitchen gadgets

    Catching fish from the tank before consuming them!
  9. i guess it's not really that big of a deal, and for $68 vs the revile $225 not worth the difference! Question, i thought i had noticed with my stovetop PC that if i quick release meats they tend to be much drier, and from a physics standpoint it makes sense. When it's under pressure the liquids in the meat are in liquid form. When you quick release the liquid instantly boils, including the liquid in the meat itself and would tend to "blow out" of the meat pieces. Has anyone noticed this quick releasing stews and chicken and stuff?
  10. Just got my IP, is it me, or is it pretty dumb that the electronic display doesn't show if the pot is under pressure after the cook cycle is completed? Clearly the sensor is there, it could just display "Hi" rather than me having to walk over to see if the metal weight dropped. am i missing something?
  11. It's very easy. Add a tablespoon of yogurt to a quart of milk and put in warm water bath. I forget the temp. Google it.
  12. Oh well, in that case I should have ordered 2, after all it's like I'm making $7.98 on each purchase!
  13. I cancelled my lux60 order placed yesterday and ordered the duo60 for $10 more.
  14. Thats exactly what I was thinking.
