Re: Popped bacon? Anyone?

Sometimes I fry sliced Anaheim peppers in a cast iron skillet and they start popping also. I think the phenomenon might be related.

Re: The Blender Thread

I don't know if you guys are aware but there is a new blender technology. Blending in a Vacuum. If for example you are blending an apple milkshake in a vacuum then the apples won't go brown.

Re: Chinese Cleaver

To point out, I think the same people also say that the heat treat on the shun cleaver isn't very good either.

Re: Knives and sun exposure

I think the repeated expansion and contraction caused by the difference between the metal and wood over many years might cause the handles to get loosened.

Re: Chinese Cleaver

I had asked about the non damascus version of that zhen cleaver a few days ago and the people here advised me against it.

Re: Need Help Deiciding on a Stainless Damascus Spoon

Tbh, those spoons just look like they are dirty. Now if they were anodized Timascus, that's something else entirely.

Do you mean using two chinese cleavers alternating chopping? I do that when chopping lots of stuff

Dual wielding knife techniques?

I saw on tv one time where this guy was cutting up a lot of meat so he was using a knife in each hand to chop to speed up the process.

Are there any other techniques that can be done using 2 knives at the same time and what would be a good reason for doing it?

Re: Experience with Zhen Cleavers?

The main reason I picked that one is because amazon has a special deal for certain prime members where you can get $30 off of any item sold and shipped by amazon as long as it's $60 or more. So with tax that cleaver would come out to $36. I was also looking at a pair of binoculars that are about the...

Experience with Zhen Cleavers?

I'm putting some serious consideration into getting a chinese style vegetable cleaver. The cheapest vg-10 clad ones that I've found are from a company called Zhen. Does anyone have any experience with their products? The knife I'm considering most is this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00E0...

15+ inch honing Steel

I have some 12 inch chef knives made of x50crmov so they are a low grade enough metal to benefit from using a steel.

So far the largest rods I've found online are 14 inches plus handle. Does anyone know of one that's 15 inches or bigger?

How to Remove words on knife?

I bought some nsf acero winco chef knives, they were a good price and they appealed to me but they have writing on the blade and I'd like to remove it for a more minimalist look. I was reading online that you have to grind out the letters or sand them, is there an easier way? Is there some liquid I ...
