Re: Carbon Skillets

I put the pan in the sink over night and the bacon residue came off easily with a paper towel next morning. The bottom coating looks to be completely gone probably due to lemon juice i put in the shrooms i was cooking first. I only used a drizzle but boy did it wipe out the coating fast!. You can s...

Re: Carbon Skillets

My Mafter does that all too easily. I freaking hate the thing. I have a bunch of carbon steel and cast iron, and the Mafter is the only one that regularly shits its seasoning all over my food. Hate it. That's too bad. Shoot they are cheap enough why not simply replace it with another brand and rid ...

Re: Carbon Skillets Fail

This is a Matfer with about 7-10 uses after several attempts at seasoning. Fried some shroom slices with a drizzle of lemon juice tonite, the seasoning layers seemed to get lighter, but then 20 oz of smoked bacon. Wow this just didn't go well at all. pan sitting in the sink now and prolly gonna nee...

Re: Need a 270mm Sujihiki

An additional data point to keep in mind from someone who uses their suji almost as often as my gyutos. Think about how you would use it during meal service. I use mine quite a bit for large pieces of cooked meat. Slice, serve, sit down with the family. Come back for seconds...thirds...dog's portion...

Re: Carbon Skillets

My big matfer showed up a earlier today and figured I'd pass along an initial cleaning tip that really worked well for me. I tried the soaking in hot soapy water and scrubbing with kitchen brush. Wax coating just laughed at it. I have a pack of 3M Scotchbrite pads. These are the grey 0000 abrasive, ...

Re: Konosuke Blue #2 Fujiyama 240mm gyuto

well I was expecting a chum in the water type feeding frenzy inside 60 seconds, but the gavel dropped quietly at $614.44. I'd say the street price for the knife has been found, or at least a good datapoint.

Re: Konosuke Blue #2 Fujiyama 240mm gyuto

Yep, just got my ending soon notification from Ebay. Not a bidder, just a watcher. At $604 with 15 minutes left. I'm predicting $646.53 !
Am curious why no free shipping? :)

Re: Carbon Skillets

Just added my second carbon skillet to the collection, well ordered it at least. Was looking for something that could accommodate bacon and up to a porterhouse steak, but in reality needed to support a good size ribeye. I have a well broken in 8.5" Matfer and thought I'd try a du Beyer this time, bu...

Re: Konosuke Blue #2 Fujiyama 240mm gyuto

Added to watch list just for curiosity sake. Still no idea how I ended up with one of these in the funayuki profile many moons ago. Great knife, whomever ends up with this one I just hope they enjoy it because it really is a piece of functional art in my opinion.

Re: Carbon Skillets

Making ghee was very easy. I'll post the overview, but in reality I did a web search and found a couple good articles with pictures. I bought a 1 lb. of quality butter (I'm an unsalted kind of guy). Melt it on med-low heat in heavy bottom pot. Skim the whey off the top as it continues to simmer (kin...

Re: Carbon Skillets

I might get a 14 inch carbon pan one of these days if I can talk my wife into lifting weights. Ya, it'll be a beast I'm guessing, especially with that long handle. Hoping that the deep 12.5 country pan, a smaller 9 inch pan, and the 14 inch will handle all my needs. Leaving the omelette pan only fo...

Re: Konosuke Fujiyama Blue 2 Petty 210mm

One left...I considered it for about 3 seconds and thought my kono white laser gyuto behaves probably pretty similarly. That made it an easy decision. I sure bet these are fun. Probably a fantastic small slicer.

Re: Knife suggestion for harvesting microgreens please

I want to advise you an electric fillet knife. It is quite powerful and has an extremely sharp blade that will help you in your farmers market. I also sometimes use it to work in the garden. And in spite of the fact that it is a kitchen gadget, this knife copes well with its duties. You can see the...

Re: Home Coffee Roasting

Thanks for the additional detail and I'll certainly do more research before pulling the trigger. I tend to prefer medium to light roasts so the Fully City levels should be fine.

Re: Home Coffee Roasting

Well I just added the Behmor to my Amazon wish list. Perhaps Santa will bring me one at Christmas. I don't have my budget spreadsheet in front of me, but I believe I spend $84 / month on coffee deliveries.

Re: Favorite coffee roasters in your area?

A favorite of mine in the Cobb County / Atlanta area is Cool Beans roasters. I used them for several years when I lived on that side of town. Good varied selection, they roast everything in house and all the dates are listed on the individual bins. I haven't been there in a couple years so just chec...

Re: Forum only Konosuke Sale?

A part of your selling strategy is leveraging the forum. Giving back or preferential offerings even for a limited time is a win-win in my book. They are in short supply and providing a small perk to some of your customers who both buy and offer advice to other buyers can't be a bad thing from the bu...
