  2. I think the IP works as a standalone electric pressure cooker. all the rest of it, and it's 46 buttons, is silly. It feels to me like bending over backwards to do everything in one pot when it's easier and more efficient to do it in several. Sauteeing in the IP is a major PIA for no discernible upside.
  3. Just going to say once that I've been VERY happy having switched to induction

  9. The military often finds weird ways to "say" acronyms that should be unpronounceable.
  10. I think the "a la" is confusing. I mean we dont call it cooking "a la Sous Vide" even though one COULD. I'd suggest VMT (voltaggio mircowave technique)

    the microwave technique? I think I was the one to mention that here first!! but I guess I missed seeing it referred to as the acronym

    What are you unhappy about with the lamb? it's interesting because, for example, if one typically brooks a lamb chop to med-rare, the inside is pink but not in any way "tenderized" while the outside is browned. The usual reason to SV it instead is to avoid too big a gradient difference from crust to center. (As you obviously know). So if someone is "happy" with the CENTER of a broiled chip, cooking it SV (for moderate times) only extends that center 'doneness' to the edges. I guess I don't expect or want a stew texture on a chop. But I don't see why a SV chop isn't a more evenly done version of a broiled one. Am i missing something? are you hoping for a unique texture? inquiring, Sous viding, minds want to know!
