  1. Regarding glue traps, yes they are gross and inhumane, but if you have scissors they can be reused. p
  2. It's a very small cutting, just enough to let a stream of milk out. Obviously the size of the cut corner determines the flow. I've had no problems with spoilage or odor. I also buy "pure filtered milk" which lasts considerably longer - I bought 4 litres of milk on Jan 2 with an expiry date of Jan 29 - the brand was Lactantia. p
  3. Bags would be my choice, even if I had a choice. The jugged bag takes up less room than a plastic 4 litre container and the other two bags can be squirreled away in a back corner. p
  4. Get out that dirty sponge! https://news.sky.com/story/self-cleaning-surface-that-repels-superbugs-could-be-used-in-kitchens-and-hospitals-11885900 p
  5. Try Amazon .ca Search for: "Chefwear Mens Ultimate Cotton Baggy Chef Pants Chef's Pant" p
  6. I took a couple of culinary courses in Barrie and I was outfitted by a store in Barrie - try http://www.theuniform.store/ p

    Re all of the above: It's a vegan conspiracy!!! p
  10. Unless you're in Canada (go figure?) C$198.00 https://www.amazon.ca/CUISINART-CSO-300N1C-Combo-Convection-Silver/dp/B075V2S1K2/ref=sr_1_5?crid=898NRE2128W4&keywords=cuisinart+toaster+oven&qid=1569173312&s=gateway&sprefix=cuisinart+toaster%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-5 p
  11. No, I don't know if it was their standard policy or if they just decided to "sweeten" the offer. p
  12. @ Smithy - the IP is a great machine, but when I do rice (3 or more times a week) I use a Zojirushi NP-HCC10 rice cooker. I know it's a 1 trick pony and pricey, but does many different types of rice and while it takes a while to finish, I just start it ahead of time and it has a keep warm function that actually works. The rice is perfect every time. It even has a setting for Gaba brown rice that is supposed to be healthy, I'm not healthy so I haven't tried it😛. p
  13. I believe it was out of warranty, but I'm not sure. I also "mentioned" that I had 5 or 6 of their other appliances😁. Their sous chef food processor, smart grill, milk station etc. Won't hurt to try. p

    Noma grills

    I think the screening is too thin to stand up to much heat. Look at the grills it is sitting on. p
  15. With other advantages than just a smart oven. 😜 p
  16. I had a problem with mine as well (the big one - xl or something), my problem was if I wanted to set a temperature I had to go back and forth to get the temp I wanted. Breville gave me what I thought was a great deal. I could either get a refurb or subtract the current price of the xl from the new smart air oven price and pay the difference. I took the smart oven air and imho, it's much better. It's larger and more presets. I use the air fry almost exclusively as it works for just about everything, though not bread. Doesn't have steam though. p
  17. I didn't feel the OP was negatively reflecting on this thread but rather expressing her take (and others) on its benefit to her. p

    Trying to squeeze out every last bit out of the poor chicken. p
  19. I have this one and am pleased with it. 220v 3000 watts. https://www.amazon.com/6535-Max-Burton-ProChef-3000-Stainless-steel/dp/B01N5JOIED p
  20. Not to be cliche-ish, but with advantages often come disadvantages. In order to be more proficient and helpful, devices need more information which we give them by using them. Personally I use Alexa and have found setting timers etc very useful, in order for the device to serve me better it needs to know me better. p
