Amazon Prime Day - your loot ?


Recommended Posts

I have a $10 credit courtesy of my purchase at Whole Foods today. Probably will just pick up some odds and ends I had saved in my wishlist since nothing I need is coming up in "deals" thus far.

I resisted Modernist Cuisine.  

I used the $10 from Whole Foods and the $5 book off promo code on a cookbook.

 Haven’t seen that five dollar book deal perhaps it’s not available on .ca or I’m incapable of finding it.

Found it! I’m still just as wealthy as I was before I found it. Or just as poor!

Not exactly culinary but we did purchase a Roomba yesterday to deal with the aftermath of a good meal.

Hope you love it as much as I love my stable of roombas!

I don't know if this is a regular deal or a Prime deal but I just spent a whopping 99 cents for a three month membership to Kindle Unlimited.  After that it costs 9.99 per month but I plan to cancel when the three months are up.

 So long as you know that once you cancel you will no longer have access to any of those books!   Just saying.

Yeah, but you will probably know which are keepers AND purchasing those will still probably be cheaper than a few months of the unlimited subscription. IOW, I pulled the trigger on that as well and consider it a try and buy program. 🙂

I bought some smoke alarms, does that count as culinary?

 

Also picked up a "DALSTRONG Kiritsuke Chef Knife - Shogun Series - VG10V - 8.5"" for myself and some Etee organic reusable food wraps for my stepdaughter.

I was fairly disappointed in the offerings, but since I had the $10 credit from my Whole Foods purchase, I bought a universal saucepan lid, which I needed.

Which is $20 less than what I paid for it just before last Christmas for my oldest brother, The Idiot. ¬¬

Of course!

When the housemate is cooking, they signal when his food is 'done!' LOL 🤣

I just don't want to look back and think "I could have eaten that."

I bought a couple of temperature controllers (still to be tested) and a self-contained mandoline (that's going back) but the big prize was my new Holsem 3.4 quart air fryer. I managed to persevere through the web crashes and lightning deal wait-lists, and got it for $66. It arrived this week. At first sight I was quite alarmed.

Anything this big wouldn't have room in the kitchen. Fortunately, the box had a lot of padding:

 

20180721_111246.jpg

 

and the unpacked product is of a more manageable size.

 

20180720_140826.jpg

 

It's still pretty big, but if we like it well enough we'll be able to make room for it.

 

The recipe booklet that comes with it has some good-looking recipes, but I found the back cover amusing:

 

20180721_112952.jpg

 

Does anyone else take this to mean that the digital version isn't convenient?

 

A lot of stuff was packed into that box. 20180721_111523.jpg

 

The web site says that the silicone mini-cupcake molds can be used for eggs. Quail eggs, maybe. I don't think even a small chicken egg would fit.

 

Rather than try any of the booklet's recipes, I had picked up some ready-to-go Chicken Kiev and a package of Tater Tots for the first test. The user's manual says to limit the amount of weight in the basket; typical weights are 500g or 600g. There won't be any whole chickens cooked in this thing, but a Cornish Game Hen would fit. I cooked 2 Chicken Kiev servings at 350F for 20 or 25 minutes (until they were done; my timing was sloppy) and then set them aside in a warm oven until the Tots were done. 

 

Overall, the dinner was successful. This particular fryer last night had a tendency for the basket to pop out of the carrier tray when removing the assembly to shake or dish out the food. If it doesn't latch more securely it may have to go back. Otherwise, it was easy to use and the lack of mess was a delight. We'll be testing it out during the 30-day no-hassle return period. I'll post further results on The Air Fryer Topic, and try for better photo quality while I'm at it!
