  1. On 9/14/2014, SJMitch said: "I'm also not giving up on finding a straight rack that fits." Have you had any luck with this?
  2. Those are my own observations on the construction and size of the pan. It might be worth ordering one, if you're confident that they'll send the newer pan, as the part number and picture look unchanged.
  3. I believe that it's also a bit larger, at 10-11/16 x 10-11/16 x 1-1/16".
  4. Thanks, Mitch. BTW, the tray accompanying the new model isn't especially flimsy.
  5. Thanks. That's why I said "yet another new model." I was wondering whether the "N" had become scarce because it was being replaced or simply discontinued. I had placed a CSO-300N in my Amazon shopping cart last night from the primary vendor (Golda's Kitchen), but when I checked just now, Golda's was no longer listed, and the price had risen by $30. The best current price is from a seller named End of Season Clearance.
  6. This thing sounds almost too good to be true. I'm nearly persuaded to install a new 20-amp circuit to handle one. However, does anyone know why it's no longer sold in any of the major retails stores--BB&B, W-S, SLT, HD, Kohl's--or even online directly by Amazon, despite the pretty much uniformly excellent reviews here and elsewhere? Is yet another new model on the horizon, or has it just not proved popular?
  7. Dinner for 16 in NYC

    Try Tocqueville, an excellent French-New American restaurant just off Union Square, a couple of subway stops or a short cab ride from midtown. They're seasonally oriented, with the city's major Greenmarket just down the block, so the vegetarian shouldn't be a problem. I'm pretty sure that there's a private dining room about the right size, if it's available that night. Toqueville Restaurant

    I haven't been in decades, but Tommaso's meets your specifications, and it's in, or at least on the fringes of, Bensonhurst. I find no mention of it on eG, so take these old CH reviews with as many grains of salt as you find appropriate.
  9. Bouchon Bakery

    I'm with you, though I might have said "leathery." Have you tried Madeleine, on W. 23rd Street? Macarons seem to be their specialty, though they're displayed in a refrigerated case.Edited to correct typo.

    My reference is other uncooked hams, and I'm afraid that this was greasy, not silky. How about the rancidity of the first few slices? Should that be part of the package? My guess is that my portion was cut from a newly prepared leg that wasn't properly trimmed. To be fair, I just forwarded my original post to D&D via their web site. I shall report back any response.
  11. Jamon Iberico

    After a lifetime of Parma, Serrano, Bayonne, and Boar’s Head, I found my first taste of Ibérico, pata negra—putatively bellota, courtesy of D&D—a bit disappointing. Hand-sliced from a relatively fresh leg, one about 5% down, the meat itself was sweet enough, but the surrounding fat melted with neither the expected rapidity nor delicacy, and the first few slices, consumed last, left a rancid greasiness on the tongue and palate that lingers still, hours later. I assume that this is not typical, but be warned. Had I invested in more than a quarter of a pound, I might have marched back and complained.
  12. The news is even better than that. Of the 11 grams, 3 grams are fiber, which passes IN-N-OUT undigested, the remainder being in the onions and sauce.ETA: Keep up the good work!

    According to a management type whom I recently asked, all tips go to the cocktail waiters and bussers. The meat countermen and slicers do not participate in the tip pool.

    David, many thanks. I'll give a call Tuesday morning.
