With regard to Staub:  Le Creuset allows use of their cauldrons on glass top stoves.  Staub apparently does not.

 

 

This is from the FAQ on the Staub UK site:

Quote

Can Staub products also be used on glass ceramic stovetops?

  • Yes. Staub products can be used on all oven types including induction. Products with a black matte exterior are coated on the underside with blue enamel which protects your sensitive stovetops.

I noticed More Than Gourmet is offering 20% off all their products.  Free shipping kicks in for orders over $50.

I see two codes on their site.  SPRING20 good May 8-12 that says it is good for all their products and PANTRY20 good thru May 31. 

 

Their stocks have been recommended a number of times here on eG and I find them quite handy to keep around.  The listed sodium levels are lower than in Better than Boullion or Minors soup bases.

I was all excited because I thought I saw flank steak on the cover of the Sobey's flyer. Turned out to just be tenderloin.

 

Bummer.

Had the following email from Darto today. It's in Spanish, but Google Translate does a handy job on it.

 

"This Monday, May 25, starting at 10 in the morning, we are going to put on sale a litter of second-selection products that include varied quantities of all our models of pans and paellas.

Second choice means that it has marks or scratches or small deformation that do not make the product function and are only aesthetic details.  

We will sell only through our website and with the option of home delivery. Due to the current situation, it will not be possible to withdraw through the premises.

The products will be published at half price starting at 10 in the morning of this Monday, May 25, and they will be delivered from July 15. They are several units and the packaging and shipping take a long time and even more in these circumstances that we are all experiencing.  

Most of the products will surely be delivered before the 15th of July except for the orders that include models of frying pan or paella n.27. The boxes of those models are being manufactured."

They've done this before - first they have a seconds sale for people in their country - then they run a second one in English for the rest of the world. 

Ah, good to know. I was wondering if this was Argentina-only. I have a sauté n.25 on order, but the eG enthusiasm for more Dartos is infectious. Has anyone here bought from a “second choice” sale? I’m curious what level of aesthetic imperfection we’re talking about.

Now that's a blast from the past. You mean the Kindle edition, correct?


"There is no sincerer love than the love of food."  -George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman, Act 1

 

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Thermaworks has great stuff 

 

I went to ThermaWorks 

 

https://www.thermoworks.com

 

on sale , but that sale might have changed ;

 

these two items , 

 

I love timers , and for the longest time , i thought I might enjoy

 

one of those Laser Temp thing-ies

 

but although i know a lot about emissivity 

 

I have no interest in fitddling around with it 

 

I do not need the exact temp of anything 

 

my wood stove  is ( Hot Hot Hot ) etc

 

good enough

 

so I got these two :

 

https://www.thermoworks.com/TimeStack

 

and

 

https://www.thermoworks.com/IR-Pocket-20

 

the timer was larger than I though 

 

no big deal , I like it

 

as i might be challenged doing two timings at time these days .........

 

but I went for it :

 

428666054_TH1.jpg.cfb0ef091362af580dcc798b9f2ad106.jpg

 

and

 

58406279_TH2.jpg.9170481c42e088d4038e36db93e0fe46.jpg

 

I like the idea that it seems easy to  operate 

 

I did one timing w no sweat !  

 

[ ed. :   82 F  85 % humidity ]

 

it had this very cool ( i wish i wee so cool  ) thing were you pull a tab from the back battery  area

 

and you are set to go.  No more fuss .

 

the instructions , middle pic

 

are laminated , and will go in the drawer directly below the pic !

 

money-mouth.gif.411e0651dabe72cb919cb533b6b0efa8.gif

 

the IR :  it came w two connectors :  a cloth one , your could carry it around on your neck

 

and a SS connection , and a keyring thing

 

both well made if you wanted  in you pocket 

 

say , to check them Temps at , @  TJ.s

 

its small , and i need my reading gaffas  to see it

 

but it looks like a great deal of fun !

 

these days ,

I bought one a few years ago for my ren faire kitchens since timing multiple things was the norm. I use their Big and Loud Chef's Timer in my kitchen, a blessing since I have a hearing deficit.

 

A couple of months ago I said to myself, "self, COVID 19 has closed the faires your wife and daughter still do. Why not put your TimeStack in your kitchen?"  So I did. I used it for about 6 weeks. I normally sets timers going in my kitchen, and sit in my family room (flows from the kitchen) and do other things while waiting for it to go off. It's not REALLY loud like the Big and Loud so I took it back out.

 

When we were using the TimerStack in my ren faires kitchens, other people would alert me when it was beeping. We each tended to use a different timer so they knew when it was mine beeping.

 

I hope you get good use out of yours. I'm a serious fan of Thermoworks.

apparently you can record what ever you want for each timer

 

you can set the volume.   Im not hard of hearing , and the kitchen is not far away.

 

Im trying to figure out how to lower the volume and the beeping number.

 

one very nice thing , it remembers the time set / channel 

 

so if you use that time interval over and over , all you do is start that channel.

 

Im e joying it.    and Im pleased the magnets are so strong its not coming off the refrigerator.

 

Im pleased w the purchase ,esp when on sale !!

I didn't buy one because I read that the timer is really loud, as for a commercial kitchen. It's hard to tell what's too loud or not loud enough from the internet!
