  1. As the heating bars are quite close to the top of the chicken, i've read that starting the chicken on its breast for about 1/3 of its cooking time prevents the breast from becoming overdone/burnt. Haven't tried this myself, but it sounds like an idea, what do others think? p
  2. Would this qualify? http://www.amazon.com/Kila-Chef-Tri-Ply-Copper-Bottom/dp/B00RF6Z5CA p
  3. I have this one as well and has worked flawlessly for me. There are better ones out there, but what convinced me was its relative light weight compared to oil pump models. p
  4. Yes, the IP is certainly worth the money,but it sounds like the main reason for your post is wanting that "walk away and forget" that you no longer have with gas. I might suggest you look at a counter-top induction burner such as: DUXTOP 1800-Watt Portable Induction Cooktop Countertop Burner 9100MC 15 power levels from 200-1800Watts; 15 temperature range from 140°F to 460°F - very highly rated and will store easily in a cupboard. Considerably less than an IP and can easily be taken out to patio/deck to use while bbqing for sides. If you wish to replace your Logastino with another of the same you should get the same result. p
  5. You know I never really, trusted organic foods! Just kidding, thanks Andiedenji. p
  6. Me too! We don't have a Costco, but have shopped there before when I lived in a more urban area...but Orillia is planning to have one before the end of the year!!! p
  7. Yes the smaller bowl has that weak point but you didn't mention the other positive regarding "all sorts of parts and attachments" - they give you a great box to keep them out of sight. p

  10. Thanks Shelby, I'm going to modify this recipe: http://dadcooksdinner.com/2012/03/pressure-cooker-corned-beef-and-cabbage.html/ Two bottles of beer, two cups water, carrots, onions, peppercorns, garlic - 90 minutes, natural release. Took almost 40 minutes to come up to pressure, but it was rather full. p
  11. Help with cooking times. Cottage roll. Usually I boil then glaze for oven. Any help with instant pot. p
  12. I guess I have to ask, is dehydrated butter just a powder? Add water to re-hydrate? Aside from backpackers wanting to conserve weight and preppers seeking long term storage, why would such a thing be appealing? p
  13. Any comments on Breville, specifically: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B005I6ZKCE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 My choice. p
  14. That's why they make you deposit a quarter to use a cart, you have to return the cart to a central location to get your quarter back. No more carts all over the parking lot. I live in a small town and don't have mentally disturbed people or kids roaming the street trying to make a few pennies. p
  15. Personally, I wouldn't take a chance. Of what metal was the stopper made? p
  16. It's not the appliances that's the problem, but rather the house wiring which is universally 120v in North America. p
  17. Good = 550 degrees Bad = US only p
  18. That link didn't work for me./Link did work Why would you be considering cookware, if you're planning to put the cooktop away in a cabinet? What's more important than the cookware is the induction burner. Wattage, the number of power levels and whether the power is actually regulated as opposed to simply on/off for various lengths of time are important factors. I covered up my gas cooktop and instead use two portable induction cooktops. One is 220 volt 3000 watts and the other is 115 volts and 1800 watts. I have used all manner of cookware and found no discernible difference. p
  19. This is what I was referring to: http://www.amazon.ca/Winco-Chinese-Cleaver-Wooden-Stainless/dp/B001VZ6NE0/ref=sr_1_10?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1456595670&sr=1-10&keywords=chinese+cleaver p

    What is it?

    Guessing here, but it could be a catalytic converter, used to fully aid the combustion of the results of the self cleaning function. Just guessing though p
  21. I would guess their choices and reviews are geared towards the mainstream of home cooks which is whom they respond to in terms of their preferences. You and I obviously have different standards and expectations. p
  22. CDNs : Amazon.ca Instantpot Deal: $99.99 http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0073GIN08?ref_=gbps_tit_s-3_7282_52e73fd3&smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB p
  23. I had a Tassimo machine (like a Keurig, but cheaper) once and their milk pods were undrinkable. Very happy for you and hoping you have many happy years with your new machine. p
