    It's a water bath, just like you'll have in any lab.

    You can do some weird stuff with it e.g. The cooking temperature for a yolk is actually lower than for the white, so if you set it at an in between temperature you can have an egg with a boiled yolk but a runny white. Dunno why you'd want to but there you go.

    Just to keep the rice cooking discussion alive:

    I had one a while back but used it so much it broke.
    Can't make good rice in the pot and won't bother to pay for a new rice cooker so I've converted to pasta.

    Put rice in sauce pan, put water in sauce pan, boil, reduce heat and wait as long as the directions say, where do you go wrong?

    I don't really love pasta because it tends not to re-heat so well. Sometimes asian-style noodles are fine, depending on how you prepared them.

    You are cooking at like 150 degrees you aren't exactly cooking in plastic.

    In a thread discussing sous vide, you managed to post the most pretentious post.

    whatever, I'm glad you feel that way, but I don't want plastic anywhere near my food if I can help it.

    Considering plastic is vastly more similar to our bodies then a metal is what reasoning behind that is there?

    You folks that are lifting for health reasons, do you ever put a cap on weights?

    How would you train and keep up the enjoyment if weight progression was out of the question?

    If You don't think all of the meat, vegetables, supplement ingredients and beverage from water to whiskey spend a significant time in plastic you are kidding yourself.

    For some maintaining a weight, be it body weight or weight lifted is the goal. For others it's about maintaining a certain physique.

    Yes, plastic has a low toxicity, but they put additives in it to make have wanted characteristics. Also the monomers used in manufacturing the main polymer. All this stuff decomposes differently when under heat.


    Plastic makes it possible. It's in clothes and bed sheets. Poison is in the dose, so I'd rather just avoid it when I can.

    After a week of no benching due to a pulled right pec, came back to hit 225x11. Was going for 12. Right pec still feels a bit tight. Gonna rest a bit more.

    dumb question, my mp3 player ran out of battery so I had to squat without music, felt better, hit PR. Is it better to do hard lifts without distraction or varies?
