  1. Some people in the past have commented on the gasket picking up odors and having trouble getting rid of the smell. I just read where Wirecutter recommends cleaning the it then baking it in a 250F oven for 20 - 30 minutes. No idea if it works but I find they are a pretty reliable group.
  2. I bet this recipe would make great muffins. I've saved the recipe and once I get a spark of my cooking mojo back, I'll make them.
  3. I made @Shelby's bread recipe today. i made 1/2 the recipe and made the dough in the bread machine. I used instant yeast. The three pictures are of the dough when first placed in the pan, the second after proofing in the CSO and finally, after baking. I used the same size pan you did. I haven't cut into it yet and likely won't until tomorrow. If you'd like to see a picture of the crumb I'll post it, otherwise I won't bother.

    That looks really good. What is the dressing?
  5. I haven't but since it has been moved to the top of the second fridge in the office, I don't use it as much. I don't put it in the dishwasher, I wash it by hand.
  6. @Kim Shook did @Shelby post the recipe anywhere? I'd like to try it. Did you make the dough in your bread machine?
  7. The Amorino Guide to Gelato by Stéphan Lagorce is an Amazon for $1.99.
  8. I can easily take mine out. The only time I struggle with the paddles is after I have taken a freshly baked loaf out of the pan. After letting the pan cool, that is. Now I just soak the pan for a bit and the paddles come right out.
  9. Hi Rob and welcome to the forum.
  10. I did forget and I have added it. Did you contact the Zo people about your frozen paddles? Did you soak your pot for a while and then try to remove the paddles? As far as tge yeast goes, I used 1 1/2 tsp. which is what the recipe called for.
  11. @TdeV I have the same bread machine as you. I put the ingredients for bread in the pan last night and set the timer for this morning. As you can see the loaf is uneven which has happened before. But, this is the first time i have had these "wrinkles" on the top. Underneath the wrinkles are hollow spots. I wrote to KAF and they responded with the note I posted in an earlier post on this thread. I made sure my paddles were in the correct position so I don't know why this happened. Not much help, I know.
  12. @BeeZee Thank you so much for the link to that newsletter. It describes how I feel better than I ever could. Lots of good advice on there. Thanks to all of you who have chimed in so far. I'm going to think about the advice offered and try out some of the suggestions. Also, it sure helps to know I'm not alone.
  13. I don't know. That's what I am trying to figure out.
  14. The title just about says it all. I haven't been feeling like cooking lately. At all. In fact, I don't even want to set foot in the kitchen. Where once I could spend whole days in there, now I don't even want to think about it. I don't know why that is, but it bothers me. My husband says it is because of the pandemic and that once things open up again, it'll be all right and I'll be back to my old self. Just so you know, I am not depressed, I'm still a happy person. Anyone else experiencing the same feeling?
  15. Amazon carries various perforated sheet pans.
  16. Yup. I bought the Forkish book in 2017. 😳
  17. What a fabulous chart. A lot of work must have gone into it and I for one, appreciate your effort.
  18. @Kim Shook I wrote to King Arthur Flour about our (sometimes) uneven loaves and this is their reply: Hi Elsie, Thanks for contacting us here at King Arthur Baking Company. We've asked Zojirushi about the sloped loaves that sometimes occur and they say it's a normal outcome for the machines. You can even see some of the loaves in photos in the manual have a slope to them as well. To help keep the loaves more even, try placing both of the blades in the machine facing in the same direction. They can both point left or right, that doesn't matter, but try to have them
  19. Hi Carol and welcome to this forum.
  20. I don't have the books anymore either. I did some googling and it returned with "everywhere" some "nowhere" and there was also an "anywhere".
  21. I always thought it was "400 miles north of nowhere". Loved those books.
