  1. Got my lumpen steel arriving tomorrow.. I have flaxseed oil but before that... what % percentage lye crystals in water do people recommend? Do I pat solution on the steel whilst wearing full chemical warfare fatigues? what is the best vessel to store the steel overnight, for lye to work. I wash off lye solution next day (in full fatigues ) and dilute remaining lye liquid before pouring down drain?
  2. Kris, does your fantastic looking marshmallow contain gelatin?
  3. Thanks Paul. Have you also tried placing a Cordierite stone under the steel to aid thermal recovery?
  4. I want to get my own steel chopped for oven insertion and pizza production. The problem is I want to know if 'mild' steel of structural use is safe for food use. I'd buy in the UK where S275 is easily available and somewhat comparable to the famed A36. BUT EU specs & US specs aren't the same... anyone know probabilities of heavy metals leeching out etc?
  5. Thanks! Been looking for the best option to strip and restart a Darto.
  6. after telling myself I definitely wouldn't buy from them again (after the errors in the first MC & the shipping damage when they sent out MC@H naked), I've bought. There must be crack addicts with more self control than me!
  7. yeah it's the feet that makes me want it. I did google "grate feet" but didn't like the photos!
  8. does anyone recognise this grate/grid that Antonio Bachour is using in this picture.....or what the correct name for this bit of kit is....? I like the height and I want one...
  9. They already sell domestic "sous vide" ovens in the EU controlled by steam using a tap fillable reservoir. Controllable to 1c.
  10. Am glad they've got the cash for tooling. hope a later iteration won't need the transformer.

    DARTO pans

    I had that too, but the other way round 27 came out a treat but 23 is a blotchy mess. Oven cleaner and then start again, anyone?
  12. Thanks Anna. I'lll wait for Annova smart oven.
  13. Since the price went up, as far as I can see, no extra backers have been attracted. And many people are skint in January.

    DARTO pans

    The salt worked a treat, thanks. am still not getting the eggs rolling around the pans like the Cooks Illustrated video. more oil when cooking or another round polymerising the pans?

    DARTO pans

    Yeah. More than 10 times and then baked.

    DARTO pans

    what do I do with carbon build-ups? scrap them off or apply oil over them? (am loving the sear they provide)
  17. over on their forums someone has posted a photo of a translucent prototype,,, looks even better than the iPod white. there seems to be room for them to add a temperature display too in the housing of the see through model!
  18. i thought funding would have been quicker on this. UK buyers might have been put off by the collapse of the value of the pound post Brexit... but mainly trying to get funding for a pricey item at the run up to Christmas when most people have demands on their finances maybe wasn't the wisest? (still want one).
  19. ..... it's the pump on the back that worries me. anyone have any idea if their longevity?
  20. ...I was hoping the vids would show the pea butter being made.
  21. What exactly is the function of that ingredient in these recipes?
  22. Have you worked with a first time owner who spends their time in the kitchen with you?
