  1. I've gotten excellent fish online from VitalChoice. It arrives in perfect condition packed in dry ice. Their sockeye salmon, sablefish, and escolar (called Chilean Sea Bass) are all delicious.
  2. Read the reviews of the Magimix, which are highly critical. I'd say return it, enjoy your Kitchen Aid, and save up for a Robot Coupe, which costs a fortune and lasts a lifetime! (And haunt eBay for used Robot Coupes.)
  3. I just gave away my Borner mandoline, I found it too complex and intimidating and always used my antique Cuisinart instead. Just bought myself one of those lovely simple Benriners that I think I'll use more frequently, with my non-cut glove. (My old Oxo worked perfectly for about 15 years but the blade loss its sharpness and they changed the design so I couldn't get a new blade, sigh....)
  4. Sheryl Canter's methods worked for me, when nothing else did. Time-consuming, but the results are worth the fuss: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/

    I've used the Wolffer Estate verjus and it's delicious! It's easy to order from them on the Internet.

    Making Vinegar

    If you drink wine with dinner, you might consider making your own red wine vinegar. You need to get some vinegar mother (I suspect it's available on the Internet) and then just pour leftover red wine into a bottle with the mother. Takes time, but the results are delicious, and it's satisfying to make and use your own.
  7. This time it worked! Even received a confirmation email. Oh joy!
  8. I filled out the form, and filled out the form, and filled it out again. Nothing happened.
  9. I can't figure out how to contact them with the information. No email info is given and the phone number doesn't work. Frustrating! Never gain get anything made by CusinartJ!
  10. I keep my vinegars and olive oil in lab cruets. They do sometimes get grummy though, and I discovered that the best way to clean the inside bottoms is by using false teeth cleaner (Efferdent). Drop in a pill, add hot water, shake till it's clean.
  11. Could it be a Demeyere Apollo or Proline? http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=Demeyere%20Apollo
  12. I'm happy with my SodaStream which I use just for plain seltzer, which tastes fine to me. I decant the soda into turquoise Italian (Bormioli Rocca) 1 liter glass bottles with stoppers. They're available at Amazon.com but are cheaper at The Container store. Perhaps it's just my intimagination, but the tastes better from glass. I drink vast quantities of it in the summer.
  13. My 18 inch square (10 inch deep) end-grain butcher block on wheels. Sits under a counter and makes a relatively small kitchen twice as effective. I love all my toys but this is not a toy but an absolute necessity for me.
  14. Thank you both for the photos. That did it! I can now re-attach the back.
  15. I would love further instructions. The video on Kickstarter on how to do this was no help at all.
