  1. Woot.com has the Excalibur 3926TB Food Dehydrator up today for $170, same model on Amazon is $240. Their deals are up for one day (or less if they sell out their stock in under 24 hours). https://home.woot.com/offers/excalibur-food-dehydrator?ref=w_cnt_cdet_home_dly_img Edit: And it's gone...
  2. Gochujang

    This is the brand I usually find in the international aisle of my local grocery store, but it's only $4 a tub rather than the $10 Amazon wants. The most common way I use it is to mix with mayo, ponzu sauce, toasted sesame oil and shichimi as a dip for fries. I also add it to crushed tomatoes along with garlic and oregano for pizza sauce and I've made the sauce from the ATK episode to drizzle over scrambled eggs. Very versatile ingredient to have on hand, and it seems to last forever in the fridge.
  3. The Air Fryer topic

    The Big Boss oil-less fryer can supposedly go up to 480° according to some reviews I read.
  4. On the Paragon the battery/transmitter unit for the probe and mat is far enough away from the pot that it doesn't get particularly hot during cooking.
  5. FirstBuild has lowered the price of the Paragon Smart Cooking system to $199 (from $299) "for a limited time". https://firstbuild.com/products/paragon/ I prefer a circulator for sous vide but I do use my Paragon for deep frying, poaching directly in fat or broth and with the new mat I can use it in place of a griddle.
  6. Modernist Pantry has them listed for pre-order, not sure what the wait time will be. https://www.modernistpantry.com/spinzall.html
  7. Yes, they sent out an email on Monday. They did the same thing in May so it could be something they plan on doing periodically.
  8. ChefSteps sent out referral codes for Joule circulators good for $30 off 9/25-26/17 only, code giver also gets a $30 gift card the first time their discount code is used. "Give your friends $30 off Joule and get $30 back! If your neighbor, your brother, or your barber buys Joule today or tomorrow using your code, you’ll get a $30 Amazon gift card.*" My code is sharejoule-0sfzhb if anyone is looking to purchase a Joule.

  10. I received an email from Dave Arnold a few hours ago, apparently he saw that video I posted on Youtube and thought my Spinzall was vibrating a little too much at speed and offered to help resolve any problems. Pretty good customer service when they contact you before you know if you have a problem or not.
  11. It was a little loud, but I didn't have the feeder cap on which according to the instruction videos I've since watched will reduce the noise quite a bit. It was also the first use mostly out of the box (I did clean the food contact surfaces) after just skimming through the instructions so I need to make sure everything is put together properly.
  12. Mine was delivered this evening while I was at the grocery store, picked up some basil and oil to make a basil/garlic oil. Pretty good, could have used more basil...and cowbell.
  13. Mine was stuck in "Label Created" purgatory for several days before it finally started moving. Should finally make it here tomorrow.
  14. Received my tracking as well, should be delivered on Monday!
  15. No tracking for me yet, I should have been in the first 500 but there was a hiccup with my payment (flagged by fraud prevention) so I may have been pushed to the back of the queue.
