  1. Every sink in my house has one of those foam soap dispensers...l love them. I buy the big refill bottle from Amazon. These dispensers are the best since they have a suction cup on the bottom that keeps them from sliding around and tipping over. Ingenious.
  2. It doesn't make any sense to me. I can (and did) order a case from Naked Wines that will be delivered later today. I do need to be here to sign. So, I don't understand how it's different that-n picking it up from the grocer.
  3. Yes, because the Philips website video on cleaning the Avance Grill recommends this one.
  4. Yes, I need to up my game. I cooked some (skinny) asparagus in mine the other night and it kind of shriveled; I should have used steam.
  5. I can count on three fingers the number of times I’ve used the steam function in my CSO. i bake all my breads in my big oven since they rise too tall for the small CSO. For proofing I use the bread proofing box I got from KAF., it works great.
  6. I’ve got fresh beets on my grocery order. CI recommends olive oil, beets, sherry vinegar, thyme, s&p. 191F for 4 to 6 hours. I LOVE beets!
  7. I discovered that I need lessons in how to truss poultry for the rotisserie. I did a poor job here so I checked in at utube I found several really good tutorials in how to do it right. Next time I'll get it done. On another subject: I now have some charred areas on the sides of my grill. Any suggestions on how to remove that without scratching it up a whole lot?
  8. Oh sure, let’s pretend that we’re just being enabled and we have no responsibility. I am one of those,

    Dinner 2019

    Wow! You travel to Amsterdam on a whim? That’s impressive. I’m envious.
  12. @Norm Matthews Are those dueling Kitchen Aids?
  13. I needed a little something to go along with my Saturday morning snow day Bloody Mary. I opted for Blue Diamond Wasabi and Soy Almonds. Yum. Now I need a nap.
  14. Yes, but he’s so charmingly British.
  15. Today I’m watching the Great American Baking Show (recorded from Thursday)/ Paul Hollywood’s Crusty Cob Loaf looks amazing. Could be a real challenge to make. Anyone game?
  16. I don’t see the point unless you’re like @Smithy and are traveling much of the time and don’t have access to a full size kitchen. Does that help?
  17. I bought that same pan about a year ago, it’s a bargain for that price. Sorry it’s so costly there.
  18. Yesterday I went on the maiden voyage with my new Joule SV. Her’s my setup. I poached my Jumbo eggs at 167F for 13 minutes. That was either not enough time or too low a temp. The whites were not cohesive enough for my tastes. Today I have a small piece of brisket (maybe <2 lbs. or so) in the tank. Set for 24 to 36 hours. Can/t wait to see how it goes...I want the meat for sandwiches.
  19. How is this different than cooking in a pan?
  20. Didn’t get home in time yesterday to do my chicken. Tonight I took my chicken out of the marinade and struggled to get It balanced on the spit. Tied it up but one leg broke free. Rotissed for 60 mins. Then checked and added another 7 mins. As this was a 5.5 lb. bird, heavier than I would have preferred. I’m happy with the flavor and texture. Not too much mess.
  21. Had a doctor’s appointment yesterday that ran long so I couldn’t do my chicken when I got home.. too tired. Tonight I took the chicken from the marinade bag and positioned it on the spit. It took some finagling to get it to be somewhat balanced but I finally got it okay and set my timer for 60 minutes. This is a big 5.5 lb. chicken so it will have to go a bit longer I’m sure. I’m nearby and watching and listening to be sure it’s turning okay.

    Citrus Juicers Electric

    I have this Breville that I purchased 10 years ago. i also have this much smaller Braun which is no longer made. The Breville has a big footprint and is difficult to store but if it’s used every day that shouldn’t be an issue. iThe Braun is a nice size and works very well for a few lemons and limes but wouldn’t be useful for anything much bigger. In summer when I just lots of citrus I keep the little Braun handy. The Breville I stored away due to its sheer bulk. I think the big Breville, which is very efficient would work really well for lots of oranges....it’s made to last.
  23. Yes there is a drip pan. The IR is built into the sides. I’m so impressed so far with the lack of mess and odor, plus it cleans up in the sink so easily. I have great expectation for the roti chicken. Hope to post some pics.
