  1. I followed CSO, BSO and APO, but now I'm at a loss "FBSO"??? p
  2. $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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  6. On top of the fridge is a BAD idea for so many reasons it boggles the brain!!! p
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Yes of course, I meant that the "standard" width is 12 inches p
  10. 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

    New Kitchen

    A thought while the electrician was there - 220 volt socket - you'll never know if you'll ever need/use it. p
  12. Compared to my VP112 Less weight, no need for fussy two handed opening Only accepts 12" X 12" bags vs 12"W x 14"L 4.7 inch vs 5 inch chamber height Cheaper price stateside, wonder what that will equate in $CAD p
  13. I wonder if the recipes could be easily adapted to the CSO p
  14. I'd worry about storing with oil in it as it doesn't seem to have some kind of airtight cover (bugs etc) p
  15. Usually the shoe is on the other foot or in culinary terms the souffle never rises. p
  16. Zehrs (Loblaws) here in Orillia has a decent seafood department and as it's a supermarket their prices are as well p

    Blast chillers

    Re killing pests - probably, but you realize that they'll still be there, just dead πŸ‘… p
  19. To get an impregnable seal the area to be sealed must be clean and dry. Amazon US sells a Vacmaster multi-ring stand for $68.23 USD - I can't imagine the price in CDN dollars - mind you it comes with a "prep stand".πŸ˜› Cheap (free) substitute - cut a 1 litre plastic bottle so that it is wide enough to accommodate the food and the other end small enough to fit the bag you are using. Not to be snobbish but I find the Perrier 1 litre bottles ideal for this. You can either wash or toss as it was free to start with. I'm sure everyone is aware of this - items that are opened, sealed, used and the re-sealed (cheese blocks) - use a large bag so that there is extra space at the top to re-seal. Anyone else with hints not covered in the manual?
  20. Pot rack over island and on top of cabinets p
  21. I have an Air Fryer (Chefman 6.8 qt) with a non-stick interior. It's not Teflon or a facsimile, but rather a "painted" on finish that is indeed non-stick. The manufacturer claims it to be dish washer safe. My concern is that dishwashers tend to be like "sandblasting" your utensils. My question would using an oven cleaner such as "Easy Off" be a reasonable alternative. Aside from a good washing afterwards are there other concerns? Would it harm the non-stick coating. What research I've done indicates ceramic is a commonly used Teflon alternative but unsure if that is what has been used. I've tried scouring with as coarse a grade pad as I could find and the polymers are there to stay. Any help with this would be thankfully accepted. p
  22. I use this: https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=Amco+711BK+Swing-A-Way+Comfort+Grip+Jar+Opener%2C+Black&i=kitchen&ref=nb_sb_noss $12CDN p
  23. I don't know why it's $150 CDN cheaper in Canada! https://www.amazon.ca/CUISINART-CSO-300N1C-Combo-Convection-Silver/dp/B075V2S1K2/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Cuisinart+CSO-300N&qid=1580658135&sr=8-1 p
