    Yessir. Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, I had to pick it up at the post office, and go through all that entails, but it is a beautiful slicer.

    No. Geezer.

    Awesome, will be a-readin' during a slow news day.

    Thanks for all the suggestions!


    Asian sophistication :nodding:



    Some of these look okay, and some of them look like they are some off-world fixture.

    That being said, do they really "de-odorize" or do they just mask the smell?
    I guess where my thoughts comes from is. Do odors really seep into the walls and cabinets of kitchens in homes of heavy cookers? Something my mom believes... Not sure if it's an old wives' tale.

    I know this has been discussed before, but I need to buy a new cutting board. Which is the best? I don't want wood.

    Then take a plastic one. They are nearly as good as wood for the edge but more resistant to color/odor. I'd say it's not overly important which company you choose, but you pretty much can't be wrong when you pay a little more for a board from a reputable producer. Buy one that you like to look at, more or less.

    Can I fly with a potato or does that have to go in checked baggage?

    why are you flying with a potato, and where are you taking this potato?

    Because I have a potato...and I want to make another attempt at pommes anna at my parents house (where I can use a mandoline and smaller cast iron skillet).

    Of course I'd still have to buy more potato...but I think I will throw it in there just so the TSA guy can go "wtf?"

    Also, I have terrible luck storing any potatoes from whole foods...it will probably have sprouted by the time I get back and want to use it again.

    You can smuggle the potato in your underwear.

    You can fly with a potato if you're staying within the USA or any of it's interests. It's a crazy thought, but they might actually sell potatoes elsewhere too.

    I do some bad boy shit once in awhile, and take produce internationally, actually. It helps to look like the kind of person who would not necessarily be smuggling tomatoes or limes.

    hmmmmmmm

    so since they won't let me bring orange juice, could I pack a few oranges and an empty bottle and juice them once I am through security?

    What if I dehydrated them and injected them with EXPLOSIVES? oh shit, sorry guys but I just ruined flying.

    yes on the oranges and oranges injected with EXPLOSIVES. Those are fine. TSA won't find them anyway, who gives a fuck. We can just blame the brown people if something goes wrong.
