  1. https://www.amazon.ca/Bisto-Chefs-Specials-Caramelised-Onion/dp/B00MWV1DSI/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=bisto+onion&qid=1601980936&s=grocery&sr=1-3 Actually its changed Now $4.61, but shipping has gone up to $23.99! Good news - delivery now Nov 2 - 24 Still sucks! p
  2. Speaking of onion flavour - Amazon.ca has "Bisto Chef's Specials Caramelised Onion - 25g" $4.88 BUT $15.00 shipping!!! It's 25g, but makes 350ml Delivery is Nov 27 - Dec 31 maybe in time for New Years 😁 Not in my cart! p
  3. I appreciate your despair of using your copper, but unfortunately the process of using an induction plate somewhat defeats the induction cooker's purpose. You have to heat the plate which in turn heats the pot which finally heats your food. If other than appearance your copper has other advantages, then it might be worthwhile. p
  4. Perhaps a "pinning" is in order also a cross-posting in CSO forum p
  5. I live just outside (15 minutes) a relatively small town (30,000) and feel I'm spoiled for grocery shopping options. I won't rate them as they are more similar than dissimilar. Zehrs Food Basics Walmart Metro No Frills Costco Giant Tiger Obviously Costco being a member only store might not qualify and Giant Tiger is like a mini Walmart as it sells clothes etc as well as food and is not as well stocked as the others in that area. The only drawback of this cornucopia of options is that few exotic products are on offer. There's only one store that has anchovies other than in a can or as a paste! p
  6. @liuzhou - well written and entertaining post! 😁 Unfortunately some of what you relate makes my shopping peeves pale in comparison. p

    So for those of you so concerned https://www.ctvnews.ca/sci-tech/avocado-apocalypse-averted-thanks-to-deep-freeze-breakthrough-1.5118779 p
  8. At first glance, I read "guy" instead of gyro and would have suggested you get out more. That being said, I've never had a gyro at all, back then the area where I grew up was not very culturally diverse and my culinary adventures were confined to jello salad. p

  11. Just to understand better your perspective, which country are you in? p
  12. http://ca.miele.ca/Onbank/en/AboutAgent/Directions - includes a phone # - I don't like those contact "forms" that you submit online p
  13. Thanks Anna, I will have to write down all these acronyms πŸ€” p
  14. I followed CSO, BSO and APO, but now I'm at a loss "FBSO"??? p
  15. $297.49CDN on Amazon Canada https://www.amazon.ca/CUISINART-CSO-300N1C-Combo-Convection-Silver/dp/B075V2S1K2/ref=sr_1_2?crid=29S7B1761CG3P&dchild=1&keywords=cuisinart+steam+and+convection+oven&qid=1597770747&sprefix=cuisinart+steam%2Caps%2C185&sr=8-2 How do they keep doing that??? p
  16. Amazon caries the Trio brand: https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=trio+gravy+mix&crid=IDZX2W9DEYU3&sprefix=trio+gravy%2Caps%2C192&ref=nb_sb_ss_ac-a-p_1_10 Just right for "chips and gravy" 😁 p
  17. As well it brings doubt onto the accuracy of the recipes and their application to this product. As an aside, I saw the recipes as possibly modifiable for the CSO so I saved a copy of it. p

    I'm partial to the BΓΆrner V-7000WH VPower V-Slicer which I've had for years. I find the geometry of a "v" blade gives me easy cutting with less effort/force. Aside from the usual things I find it slices salami types of meats quite nicely. Expensive but worth it. p
  19. On top of the fridge is a BAD idea for so many reasons it boggles the brain!!! p
  20. If you still have the box - I had to send my machine back and the box was long gone - I had to get mucho creative 😰 p
  21. It looks like there might be some kind of coating on the pan as that temperature for such a short time to have that result is strange. The pan's thickness might also be at play here. p p
  22. Yes of course, I meant that the "standard" width is 12 inches p
  23. Product website: https://www.lemproducts.com/product/maxvac-pro-chamber-sealer/all-vacuum-sealer-products Amazon reviews: https://www.amazon.com/LEM-Products-MAXVAC-Vacuum-Sealer/product-reviews/B009SJBOVI/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewpnt_rgt?filterByStar=critical&pageNumber=1 Pros - oil pump - dual seal bar - price Cons - weight - only accepts 10 inch wide pouches p
