    Rice Cookers

    For what it's worth, there are specialty Persian rice cookers that are designed to make tadig, for all you crunchy rice lovers: https://persianbasket.com/kitchenware/persian-rice-cookers
  2. Has anyone tried the Max? I don't have an IP or any pressure cooker for that matter, but I am interested in it because of its alleged 15psi operation

    DARTO pans

    For what it's worth, despite all the confusing emails and DHL fuckups, Nicolas from Darto sent me a replacement for my missing no. 27 pan super fast, for no additional charge
  4. Let me assure you, good churchkhela in Georgia is deep-breath-inducing

    DARTO pans

    Wow, those look gorgeous. What was your seasoning process?

    Did the steel wool help smooth out the surface, or was it just to get the gunk off?

    DARTO pans

    the found pan arrived. no trace of the second. It has no markings on it so I don't even know which of the two it is. And the handle was bent (I was able to bend it back), and on top of that, the finish is pretty rough, nothing like the de Buyer pan I have....is that par for the course?

    That's not good. I'd hate to file something against them

    DARTO pans

    Well either Darto or DHL messed up - my pans left Miami on October 25 then silence - I contacted DHL for more info, and today they found a single pan (I ordered 2), loose, out of its packaging in their "lost and found warehouse database" and the other has disappeared. I hope none of you have to go through this!
  10. That looks very similar to a traditional Iranian kafgir/Iraqi chafchir, specifically used for cooking and serving rice

    DARTO pans

    My DHL info says it cleared customs in Miami on October 25, but nothing further. To those who've received theirs already, how long did it take once it cleared customs?

    "Old/Soup Chicken" from H Mart

    I've seen whole chickens at H Mart labelled either soup, stew, or old chicken, as distinct from the rest of the poultry for sale there. I was wondering if anyone had tried these, and if they are in fact better for long cooking, and also any speculation about the provenance of said chickens? Industrially raised chickens are slaughtered very young, so what about these?

    Got my email, if only I had time to cook anymore

    Bourbon closing is actual fake news, according to most of my industry connections
