  1. I always do 4 minutes on high pressure with a 4 minute release and then into ice to cool. Eggs straight from the fridge. Always come out perfect.
  2. Made a peach sorbet with a can of peaches in heavy syrup, blended and 1 tsp of Paul Raphael's stabilizer blend and 1 tbs of vegetable glycerin. Came out very smooth and quite tasty.
  3. You might even consider a plain ice cream base and add grape flavoring extract, like this: https://amzn.to/39SvFRR Don't know if it's any good. I have also had success with snow cone syrup like: https://amzn.to/3QKxot9 Never used that brand or flavor either. If you live near a Smart and Final, I like their First Street house brand, at least for cherry.

    Why doesn't it? 😉 I could eat it without butter and I don't put a lot on. Just adds a bit of extra flavor.

    An oddly-shaped but tasty sirloin, cooked SV then seared, served with steamed broccolini with butter.
  6. Taking a page from Anna N's book, I bought some Johnsonville brats and cooked them in the Ninja using the grill mode instead of the air fryer mode. Use the Lo setting which is 400F and cooked them for 11 minutes. They came out fine!
  7. Instead of alcohol, try some vegetable glycerin. I use 1 tbs in a Creami sized batch. I also use Paul Raphael's recommended stabilizer blend of 2 parts carboxymethylcellulose to 1 part each of lambda carrageenan and guar gum. I use about 1.5 tsp.

    Yet another pork chop on the NFG, served with steamed broccolini from the new farmer's market near us.
  9. Lately I have been buying the McCain's fries. Only take 5 minutes and are quite good. Not sure if you can find them in Canada.
  10. To me this is the "when you have a hammer, everything is a nail" syndrome.

    Leftover Italian sausage with stewed tomatoes, reduced to almost no liquid, and steamed squash.
  12. The Ninja Foodi Grill does frozen fries very well. Raw fries too.
  13. Danville CA. Said to reflect the fact that not all Costcos have the same items or prices.

    Belgian beef stew made with a domestic "lambic style" nectarine beer from Firestone-Walker. Made in the slow cooker. Served with mashed cauliflower.
  15. I still use the PAG, but not as often as I used to. I did just use it the other night. Now, for indoor cooking I mostly use the Ninja Foodi Grill (the one with the temp probe). It also air fries, dehydrates and roasts/bakes, but I haven’t tried the latter. At the moment my Costco has the the XL version with probe for $179. I got the smaller version there for $139 on sale.

    Sweet Italian sausage with grilled asparagus and grilled red peppers, all made on the Philips Avance Indoor Grill.
  17. Chris Young just did a tear down and comparison between the PacoJet and the Creami: Plus, they are giving away a Creami (two actually) if you sign up for the SMS list: https://signup.combustion.inc?kid=2CDE37
  18. That was a long time ago. Since then there’s been a BSOA and now the Ninja Foodi Grill which is an excellent air fryer in addition to being a grill and a dehydrator. I really like it plus it has a probe to measure the meat temperature when grilling. The comparison I was talking about was between the Ninja and the BSOA making fries from scratch. The Philips was retired long ago as I could never get it to stop smoking once I made the mistake of air frying some pork belly.

    Another pork chop cooked on the NFG, with Brussels sprouts also on the NFG, with a dash of tangerine flavored balsamic after cooking.
  20. Look up thread for my comparison of BSOA fries and air fryer fries. While I love my BSOA, I also love the air fryer for certain things (also because it's a grill).
  21. I haven’t worried about the bubbles.
  22. Bread yeast will make beer, but not good beer. Beer yeast is the same strain as bread yeast, but there are many variations just like we are all Homo sapiens.

    Dinner 2022

    My chunky red sauce made with chicken Italian sausage instead of ground beef, served over rainbow farfalle (they called it farfalla - aka bowtie pasta) that my wife couldn't resist at Costco. The coloring in the noodles did not add to the flavor.
