Ok, I have a standard double-bowl stainless steel kitchen sink, and looking to replace that. My options for sink material are stainless steel, composite, and enamel/porcelain.
I'm leaning heavily toward composite. Stainless steel doesn't look as nice and porcelain is the most expensive option...
Well, in my thrashing about with ideas for meals, I was caused to look for Slicers to thin slice Veggies and Meats. And that has left me confused between Mandoline Slicers, Guillotine Slicers and Electric Knives. Still a no go on these thrashings.
In the Mean time, I have ordered an Apple...
It got driven home today that kitchen fires happen. My next-door neighbor's kitchen, and part of the house, was destroyed today by a kitchen fire. It made me think. Am I prepared for a kitchen fire?
I have a kitchen fire extinguisher, but it is easily ten years old or older. Time to replace it...
I use my phone in the kitchen quite a bit, either to cook from a recipe that I've found or to use as a reference to look up a last-minute substitution or measurement conversion.
One of my relatives has gone as far as to install a little iPad holder that swings out from the wall and can be...
My first time making and eating these, so taste wise didn't really have a reference point. But was very happy after my first bite!!
500gms rib eye fillet sliced thinly
9 thin slices provolone cheese
3 crusty sourdough rolls
1 large brown onion chopped
1 green capsicum (bell...
Wasn't sure where to put this, but I've taken to grabbing a nearby stool while in the kitchen.
Waiting 10 minutes for the stand mixer to knead bread, or for eggs to boil...more and more often, I just cop a squat in the kitchen instead of going into the other room.
What about you?
Piggybacking off the "scariest" topic, what's the most useless thing in your kitchen?
You can define "useless" however you like; maybe it doesn't perform as it should, or maybe it's something you have and just never use.
For me, it's the plastic egg holder that came with my fridge - a...
As noted earlier, I got Mary & Vincent Price's Come Into The Kitchen Cook Book for Christmas.
I have to say, although I have broken the seal, so to speak, and made two things from it, I'm really enjoying it just as a book to read.
It's arranged in time-period fashion, from colonial American up...
We all have cleaning jobs we dislike - what is your most disliked cleaning job in the kitchen? Mine is emptying the kitchen bin (or bins) and keeping them clean. Why hasn't someone invented a disposable eco friendly pop-up kitchen bin?
Next is cleaning the oven - but I get a company in to do that.
Ok peeps, I need some advice on kitchen storage, especially cooking pots and pans. We bought a new kitchen a year or so ago but I'm still struggling to find sensible storage space for all the most used items.
I'm obviously going to rationalise things and store little used bits and pieces...
Do any or you remember what your first-ever kitchen appliance was? The day that you moved from the nest.
Was it a toaster, coffee maker or hand-held mixer, maybe a blender? Was it when you left the nest, before or after you got married? Usually, when you move out from your parents' place, the...
Meet Ruby - She was with me as I learned how to cook. See was my faithful kitchen assistant. Sadly, I had to put her down a year ago but we had a great life together.
Do you let your pets in the kitchen?
