Re: Kitchen knives

One grinds until the burr is felt on the edge, then one moves to the next station. It took long for my knives because some of them were heavy bladed knives used for dressing out deer, and knives used for other purposes...very heavy blades up to almost 1/4" thick. My kitchen knives were reground fair...

Re: Kitchen knives

Murray, the 3rd station on the Trizor is a hone, so in order to not abuse your knives you would use it (and put away the steel) to realign the edge. The machine is far better at controlling the angle and maintaining the edge than humankind is. If you insist on using inaccurate methods of maintenance...

Re: brush cleaning

What a shame that you had to do that Gary. What mental illness afflicts some folks that they can't take care of their gear? I just don't understand.

Re: Kitchen knives

That's what we use too FW' . Once you get the edge converted over to the 15° angle it's a walk in the park. I love the thing. Our knives have never been sharper and I thought I was doing good with sharpening by hand. But now they are much sharper. I watch cooking shows and when I see a chef abusing ...

Re: pots and pans

I don't know if I would ever buy another set. One gets a lot of stuff that will never be used. But if by a set you mean pieces that you buy because you'll use them, I would agree with that. You might also go to your local restaurant/food service supplier. I've gotten some awfully good things from ou...

Re: A Self Review

I've never found pushing a DE blade to do more than it can safely do to be a good thing. As you wrote you just don't know when it's had enough. I'll add that when a DE blade is used when it's getting dull it will bite. Now a SE blade can be pushed and I've never had one bite, it just stops working e...

Re: A Self Review

Yup. I call "touch" pressure. The blade needs contact (obviously) but if the skin is deformed inwards it's too much pressure. Deformed in the direction of travel is to be expected.

Re: Lung ailments - post-tobacco - causes thereof

I view marijuana smoking akin to smoking unfiltered Camel cig's on the lungs.

Folks are serving themselves up to be guinea pigs and paying $ for the "pleasure". (OK, so I'm told that smoking MJ is pleasurable, but I don't think so.)

Re: Knockoff "Taylor Pork Roll"

Gary, it's definitely not a national brand. It's made in the Philly area and is found (that I know of) in NJ and NY. Maybe other areas close by, but I don't know of it.

Re: pots and pans

If one is cooking something more or less dry, yes I think there is something better than teflon. It's a well seasoned steel pan (or well seasoned Cast Iron (CI) ). Matfer calls it black steel and it will get that way after being well seasoned. But don't use it for making sauces and such. That wet co...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Gary, was that Taylors Pork roll? It's incredibly expensive to have shipped. When I saw the cost I didn't drop the hammer on it. Now I either wait for folks from that area to drive north or I make my own. IMO, the home made is superior since I can make it as sour as I want. Maybe my taste buds are g...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Years ago when I heard or learned about Marmite I looked for it locally (here in Florida, USA) and couldn't find it. I had since forgotten about it until seeing this thread. But now, in the Internet age, I just checked and found it can be ordered on Amazon. Hmmmmm. I will have to give it a try next...

Re: A Variation on Eggs Benedict and a curious side dish

Interesting read. Interesting variation and I like that. Sure, Rosti would work fine. I can see it being a keeper variation, as well as the salmon. I always wring my potato shreds out something like a tourniquet applied far too tightly, but held in fabric; same way I get the water out of farmers che...

Re: Synthetic Brushes and Optimal Size

Exactly my experience before synthetics also. They're just different and ones experience with natural fiber is no longer valid as it pertains to syn' brushes. Loft as it pertains to synthetics is totally different also.
