  1. Cottage roll - I think it might be a regional naming convention. http://dondayinsma.com/2014/11/15/only-in-canada-you-say-not-any-more-now-you-can-make-it-in-mexico/ https://delishably.com/meat-dishes/Pork-Cottage-Roll-Pork-Recipe p
  2. Just check Amazon for enameled cast iron - there seem to be quite the choice p
  3. Probably to a degree - the BSO Air suggests using the basket for air frying and dehydrating, but it's worth trying p

    Food recalls

    Not exactly a recall, but rather a warning: https://www.ctvnews.ca/health/cdc-warns-of-multi-state-listeria-outbreak-linked-to-deli-meats-1.5159433 p
  5. @ElsieD - it's similar to forks - you never know how many mouths they've been in, but it's never a conscious thought. p
  6. Two Anova Precision Ovens p
  7. Interesting side effects of Alexa or Google controlled lights and sockets, the internet is out so none of them work, so you stumble around in the dark trying to find a flashlight. Then search for a non-internet controlled socket so you can plug the kettle in for a coffee. But that's only half the battle because if was a power outage and everything is non-functional, there's no point in plugging in the kettle and when the power comes back on all the lights in the house come on as well. You have to go around the house saying "Alexa turn off kitchen, Alexa turn off living room, Alexa turn off..." Yes I could easily set up a routine to turn everything off but that would be too easy! It's worth it when it works but a pain when it doesn't.
  8. So many choices...so many missteps available 💗 p
  9. Well, so long as it isn't plugged into an Alexa controlled socket. p
  10. I wouldn't use it for heavy tasks as it does look thinner than the rack. But, having said that, I'm assuming because it has more cross beams supporting it, the bend in it under my Le Creuset is about the same as the rack. It'd be great for steaming/roasting and I'd have no qualms about putting meat or vegetables directly on it. I doubt I'd have issues with a normal pan as compared to the rack either given the similar bend now that I think about it. These are the full posts I was referring to and his suggestion of using it to roast on. Sorry for the confusion. p
  11. My big concern with racks of the "cross-hatch" design is the subsequent cleaning of baked on residue. Soaking does help as does using a brush, but I'll stick to the parallel rod design for easier cleanup. p
  12. Due to increased demand and covid restrictions, that new stove under the Christmas tree might be a no-show. https://www.ctvnews.ca/business/whoever-has-stock-right-now-is-king-surging-appliance-sales-cause-shortages-1.5134488 p
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Perhaps a "pinning" is in order also a cross-posting in CSO forum p
  17. 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
  18. @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
  20. 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

  22. I have this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Update-International-FFC-25-4-Inch-French/dp/B003R42T4G/ref=sr_1_27?crid=1T1QO3AASTQU4&dchild=1&keywords=french+fry+cutter&qid=1599486030&sprefix=french+fry%2Caps%2C189&sr=8-27 Stay away from plastic. p
  23. Just to understand better your perspective, which country are you in? p
  24. http://ca.miele.ca/Onbank/en/AboutAgent/Directions - includes a phone # - I don't like those contact "forms" that you submit online p
