^ The arm-hair thing or the cherry thing?
Arm hair. Never tried cherry tomatoes.
Sad reminder of how dull currently are my knives....
I'm about to throw up some chickpea fritters
Do you pre-steam them in the dishwasher?
Looking for flatware for daily use to slightly formal. Wise ones, can you guide me?
Leaning toward this stuff...
Love them. The caccia designs are the most beautiful flatware to my eyes.
i'm partial to the Renzo Piano designed flatware, i think iittala makes them
I'm a train wreck with non-stick. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong.
Anyway, I prefer a cast iron frying pan. I have one of these:
Awful pic, I don't think its made any more.
I have this nice Woll non-stick and have wrecked it. Has anyone solved how not to destroy one of these? I've gone thru like 4.
How did you destroy this pan?
Simple answer is that it doesn't non-stick anymore. It seems to develop this flat color, that sheen from the non-stick surface disappears and then I'm left with a pan that unless I heat it at high heat I'm fucked. It just sticks.
I'm not sure how to maintain it, washing, etc. What is the correct method? The lady at the store told me just water but that's a bit gross.
Nonstick wears off after a time, but it is a pretty long time. Washing is just soap and hot water, nothing abrasive and a soft sponge, not a green one. I've honestly never had this problem, maybe try a different brand.
So I used a 'faux' abrasive pad, and my former significant other ran it in the DW which I wasn't sure was damaging or not. I got 2 years max from that Woll before I started to notice stick.
So I cant use that plasticy pad? I rubbed very lightly. And how long should one last?
I like some of the steel Christofle patterns like Tenere, I might get something like that for daily use myself. The price is also a little more fair than Alessi.
Depending on frequency of use, two years isn't that bad. I don't remember where I got this advice, but it was essentially "Don't spend a lot on a non-stick pan because they're disposable."
