Re: 11 tips to be a better cook (if it fits)

I don't Allow EVOO into the kitchen unless it's from https://www.freshpressedoliveoil.com This is one of the most faked and ripped off food groups in America And none of the major brands come close to real. EVOO isn't for cooking it's a finishing oil Smoke point is too low to cook with and once you...

Re: What do you think of the InstaPot?

True for all pressure cookers, not just the InstaPot - room in the pot is required for food expansion.

Re: Henckels, Shapton Glass, Meara ...

I need a set of stones to handle Vics, Henckels, Wusthof and Global. I sharpen a lot of these for others. Don't mind spending the money on the stones. I know you like the diamond plates, Gladius, but I don't really like the feel of the Atoma. How do the 400 and 1000 diamond plates you use feel? If ...

On second thought, keep it and just use it exclusively for a few weeks before you make another regretful decision.

Think you are spot on gladius ;) Looked at the old forum, and I did sell the Shig and Kono. Withdrew the Kato (thank god). Don't mind letting go of the Shig, but the Kono was a big mistake

I don't think you will have a hard time selling the Shigefusa - I love my 240!

Re: What do you think of the InstaPot?

Re: Henckels, Shapton Glass, Meara ...

Which brings me to my first question. Are Shapton Glass stones ideal, or great, with German knives. My Kohetsu stones are excellent, but the Glass 500 did a stellar job. The SG stones are hard, fast, precise ceramic stones while the Kohetsu stone are somewhat not as aggressive and a little softer. ...

Re: Adding a stainless pan? And other stuff...

Either Matfer or DeBuyer pans are a good buy and work for your needs; cleanup is a non issue for either. I use a small https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B0087UYR1S/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1,chainmail << for the cast iron and carbon pans. I like the DeBuyer 9.5 inch Omelette Pan fo...

Re: Adding a stainless pan? And other stuff...

I have 2 Matfer pans carbon steel and like them. Cooks Illustrated preferred them to Mineral B because they do not have rivets inside so it is a pretty smooth surface all around (easier to clean, no food getting stuck, etc). --- How are the welds holding up on the Matfer pans? http://i.imgur.com/Iz...

Re: Adding a stainless pan? And other stuff...

Like cast iron heavy? My cast is heavy... :lol: Then again, it is 12 inch and I am looking at an 8 inch for this job so that would make a big difference regardless. probably going to plate flip as I have no coordination. --- No - not nearly as heavy. The 9.5 inch omelette pan is listed at 3.04 pounds

Re: Which of these 4 should I buy?

I've got both...my TF is a great performer as is the Zer0. As has been alluded to above, the TF is not consistent and if you can get a good one buy it, a fantastic cutter by a swordsmith who heat treats white no.1 steel like I have not seen in another knife. The hammered Saji Zer0 is also a great pe...

Re: Adding a stainless pan? And other stuff...

Would adding a stainless fry pan/skillet to my lineup be advantageous? If so, suggested size? (I normally cook slightly oversize portions for 2 or 3 regular portions as I take leftovers to my mother.) Also, any suggestions on a new nonstick? We make Spanish Omelets a lot, a lot! These require no hi...
