Let's just mention that there are health controversies about using a broken nonstick coating and/or bare aluminium surfaces, and see them as controversies that are off topic here. Non-stick wise, this pan is wrecked. There is no practical way to fix a modern nonstick coating to original state yourself at home. It seems that some spray-on products used to ...

Kartoffelreibe Is the German name for it I just try to find one to buy but they on ebay and the shipping is unexplainable high, for the Kartoffelreibe about 10 they charge 80 for shipping. Would settle for a used one.

My sprayer never clogs. I put my dried herbs & peppercorns in a small cheese cloth bundle. No debris from the spices and aromatic oil with every spray. I too clean my unit with inexpensive alcohol such as rum or vodka, every 6 weeks. I stay away from water, for cleaning, it tends to spoil the oil over a short amount of time.

I don't know if I'd qualify is as a machine, but they're called either a 'proofer' or a 'proofing box'. You'll need to check the description, as some boxes are just plastic and are intended to go into a larger proofing room.

My preference for sugar work is to either use a pair of rubber-coated cotton gloves like this: or to use basic cotton gloves and put latex or nitrile disposable gloves over them.

The best way to clean it is with timing. Use your spray nozzle as soon as you are finished using it so good doesn't have a chance to setup and glue to your mandolin.

I recently cooked eggs sunnyside up in my nonstick pan, for 15 minutes. Once the smoke cleared, I noticed carbon deposits on the pan. They look remarkably like what you have on yours. Boiling a strong solution of baking soda in the pan for 15 minutes, then letting it sit til cool let me get the carbon off with a plastic scrubby. Sadly, although it looked ...

I had (actually still have) the same problem. I have a non-stick teflon frying pan. Scrubbing with the rough side of the sponge didn't help and I could scratch the oily residue with my nails off the pan. The solution I had is to rub very gently the polymerized oil with steel wool off the pan. It was easier if the pan is absolutely dry. There is a chance ...

One "hack" to try is to put a larger glass baking dish on top (e.g. 9"x13" over an 8"x8"). It is heavy enough to make a moderately decent seal.

Personally I just use 3 layers of food preparation latex gloves. It's far from 100% heat resistance but you can still feel what you are doing and be protected enough not to blister and cry. Cheapest option to as a box of 100 latex gloves is in the £3 region. Also the same goes for trying to pull fresh out the oven pork or beef.

I've had success with 2 methods .. 1: Tap the lid on the edge of a worktop, working all the way round. 2: Either hold the top of the jar under running hot water or stand jar upside down in a bowl of hot water for a couple of minutes. (failing that I shout for son or husband!!).

Add few drops (2-3) of water into coffee beans right before you start to grind it. Works like magic. Here's a video in case you need to see how to do it. Hope this helps.
