  1. I apologize, this would be funnier with a photograph. Today I received a shipment from one of my favorite vendors, nuts.com. In addition to the free bag of cashews, there was a mysterious inflated plastic bag taking up space in the shipping box. The label reads "Invisible Peanuts, ingredients: air". It broke me up.
  2. I too lurked. I found eGullet posts kept turning up on google searches.
  3. Last night I cooked up a mess of Rancho Gordo Mayocoba beans. My poor Fissler was audibly venting more steam than I expected, which is why I took the valve apart to clean it, and to run the lid through the dishwasher. When I visited the Fissler USA site just now I saw only one applicable valve. I would love to get a higher pressure replacement.
  4. Mine says 60, which would be 8.7 PSI. Not sure what to believe.
  5. While I'm sure it is behind a paywall, the NY Times Magazine has a recent article on whether it is disgusting to eat tomatoes with mayonnaise. The dispute is between a tomato and mayonnaise loving Eastern European mother and her Taiwanese husband, along with their three children, who are revolted by the mother's enjoyment of such a disgusting texture. Since my dinner tonight is tomatoes and mayonnaise, I assert that I have standing.

    Although they all get caught in my teeth.

    Dinner 2023

    I've not seen fiddlehead for sale in years. I envy you.
  8. Last weekend a friend took me to dinner at a local Mexican restaurant. Chips and salsa came immediately. After a long interlude the wait person returned and asked if we were ready to order, or if we needed more time. I complained we never received a menu. She explained the QR thingy, but I pointed out I do not have a cellphone. My friend has a cellphone but it is a flip phone, not a smart phone. It would never have occurred to me not to expect a paper menu from any restaurant short of Le Bec-Fin.
  9. As I recall @rotuts has also served as a resident Progresso shill. A warm can of Progresso soup has eased my way through many a long night.
  10. The thermocouple I used is a ThermoWorks K-020 Heavy Duty Surface Probe. I have a Surface Thermapen but the battery needs to be replaced. The pan I used was a Falk 28cm. Using this same pan I have previously noted the surface gets much hotter under the induction coil.
  11. I tried to make a pretty graph for show and tell, but I lost patience. Anyhow with a thermocouple at the center of a 28cm induction compatible copper pan on the Paragon set to 150C, the temperature stabilized between 136-138C. I did not measure the temperature under the coil area.
  12. My guess is still it was an unintended descale function. Ask me how I know.
