does the box broil ?

 Nope. The broiling took place in the Cuisinart steam oven.

Directly on the pan from the A4? Pretty handy, if so!

for a small apartment 

 

with less say very limited space and appliances 

 

and no more that two mouths to feed

 

exp Companioinns

 

looks like the A2 + CSO would be very complementary.

Does the A4's griddle pan fit in the CSO?

 Almost but not quite.   At first I believed it was fitting  Then closer examination shows that it is hung up on the tracks for the shelf. I tried using it as a shelf but again it is just a tad too short so that it is unsafe and will not remain in place.  So the final answer is no it will not fit.

 Not going to apologize. It’s my toy. It’s my morning. And it’s my breakfast.😂  I wanted to fry an egg in one of the hollows of this plate. But I also wanted to fry up some pepperoni. The ideal configuration is not available – – that would be one or two  hollows/cups and the remainder a flat griddle.  But I wasn’t prepared to dirty another pan just for a few slices of pepperoni. So in they went.

 Egg and pepperoni onigirazu.  As I suspected, the perfect sized egg to fit my rice sandwich.

This little gizmo is providing me a great deal of vicarious fun. It makes me wish we had a "Whee!" icon. :D I'm so glad you're playing with and posting about it!

Thanks. Sometimes I think I’m just talking to the wind so it’s nice to know I’m amusing somebody!

I am looking at, studying and weighing up recipes/methods for making takoyaki although it won’t be tako because I’m not going to find any octopus around here but there’s a very legitimate ebiyaki (shrimp) I understand. But I admit to being quite intimidated by the whole procedure. Pumping up my courage.

I do like mortadella although I’ve never had the Italian kind.

Not talking to the wind. I'm really enjoying you checking out all cooking options on the box. Thank you.

Did you get the sweet stuff? Foul. The regular LB is great stuff.

Maybe I've never had proper Lebanon bologna. The stuff I've had from grocery delis (all west of the Mississippi, I might add) has left me cold: not nasty, but too...too...garlicky? Bland? I don't know. What defines Lebanon bologna?

 

As to the shrimp vs. octopus **yaki I am utterly ignorant of it all, and glad to see/read anything you care to share about it. I don't even know what the -yaki means; I know it from sukiyaki (sp?) and that clearly shows how little I know.

 

No, you definitely aren't talking to the wind!

Tried both. Just don’t get it. But then I don’t get caviar, foie gras, or truffles.

I am no linguist but my understanding is that yaki can mean grilled, roasted or cooked. I have to guess that context makes the difference. I believe @liuzhou is a linguist but that doesn’t mean that he is fluent in Japanese or can translate one language to the other In this case. But there are enough people around that I’m sure somebody will pop in and tell us what yaki means.

Breakfast from the box.

First some skillet toast.

Then when it reached an appropriate degree of doneness I turned it over and added some rinsed, canned salad shrimp.

Then I turned down the heat (this thing is amazingly responsive, but of course it is induction) and scrambled a duck egg.

it’s a bit like having a mini flat top.

I'm certainly nowhere near fluent in Japanese, but...
 

Yaki means "fried". Well, I understand it means "cooked", but usually only applied to frying.
