  1. I misspoke (again) the Fissler roasting pan/rondeau I have on order is 28cm, not 24cm. Maybe bigger than I had in mind. I hope it fits in the APO.
  2. It's the enzymes. Pineapple has the same effect on me. Think of it as being eaten by your food.
  3. No, but close to that I had an exploded can of coconut cream. Blew the cabinet open, got the ceiling, didn't quite make it to the opposite wall.
  4. I think its trying to tell you something about leaving Minnesota.
  5. I shall never again reduce a vinegar reduction...to carbon.
  6. With the Fissler 25% off sale coming to an end in a few minutes I succumbed to a third cookware order, a 24cm roasting pan with dome lid. One of my friends has said I have a pot addiction. The sale is a closeout on the 2019 Pure-Profi line. Another pot I would have liked was sold out. The new Fissler Pure-Profi pots don't look nearly as nice. The 22cm roasting pan I might have bought was sold out and the amazon scalpers already offer it for three times the list price.

    Dinner 2022

    A reworking of leftover Kenji Easy Skillet-Braised Chicken with Mushrooms and Bacon. https://forums.egullet.org/topic/163549-dinner-2022/?do=findComment&comment=2340930 I stir-fried more mushrooms, shallots, and garlic. And rebraised last week's leftover chicken to oblivion. Just the way I like it. Pink chicken does not appeal to me. And unlike last week, quite good.

  9. I use German Brita filters. In North America the Brita brand is owned by Clorox. Different products.
  10. Though If the NP-NVC18 could cook oats, what would be the point of stating in the NP-NVC18 instruction manual Important Safeguards it cannot?
  11. Except for color your valve looks the same as mine.
  12. Amazing coincidence: the size of my mai tai is 16 oz.
  13. Toe pictures in a food blog are always welcome. When I saw your post I wondered if Kerry's Manitoulin sub had made it that far south? Here in New Jersey we are having a local food event called "Subfest" -- having nothing to do with hoagies.
  14. I consider ground beef to be messy. Even Kenji wears gloves for ground beef. With my Demeyere Searing Pan screaming on the stove I removed the previously opened plastic package from the refrigerator and placed the beef and its wrappings on the counter next to the sink. As it happens the dishwasher is next to the sink. The package was unwieldy, and this was after a mai tai. And @gfweb, it is a Frigidaire.
  15. I will never again dump the ground beef in the bottom of the dishwasher. And for once I might be serious.
  16. Apples and oranges, but I have three editions of the hardback NYT Cookbook, and that would be my choice.
  17. I received my Vekkia from amazon the other day. It is everything that @heidih promised. I was so pleased I ordered a newer model from the same supplier that was $2 more. On the new version there is no lump in the middle of the (your) neck, and no wretched micro USB connector, the worst electrical connector devised by man (obviously). In addition to perusing cookbooks, I can use the lights for commuting down the state highway in the dark of night on my trek home from the library. Gives drivers something to aim at.
  18. Just to clarify: Jo uses these mats for (infrequent) dehydrating in the APO. Jo has never used them for baking anything .

    Dinner 2022

    Pretty, but a disappointment: Kenji's Easy Skillet-Braised Chicken with Mushrooms and Bacon, The Food Lab p252. Easy I suppose is relative, but that does not excuse the other faults. For one thing, the bacon is cooked three minutes and transferred to a plate. Thence never to be mentioned. Kenji is not one to pass up on bacon. He probably ate it all, waiting for the chicken. I braised the chicken almost twice as long as called for. Still pink. It was supposed to be falling off the bone. It wasn't.
