I have never tried it but when I googled wok burners (thinking to find a standalone high-output gas hob), I found this article about a wok ring called the "WokMon" on Serious Eats and had to post it here: A couple months ago I was approached by Glen Lee, an inventor who claimed to have an ingenious new device for cooking in a wok at home. Seemed to me ...

A sausage stuffer, perhaps? Your standard food mill attachment type more typically seen in a home kitchen: Unless you're seeing some product I've never met, I would not call that stuff "rolled in tubes" - I'd call it a tube (or log) of dough, and I expect the filling process is VERY like a (large, automated) sausage stuffer, and involves no rolling at ...

We have two (a coincidentially matching pair) of these at home. They have a few uses: Ours are similar proportions to steak knives, and they work very well for that (or pizza). I sometimes call them "cheese sandwich knives", because they cut both bread and cheese (and tomatoes if that's your thing). This means they're good for taking on picnics or for ...

It really seems to be dependent on the consistency of the dough. Some cookie doughs won't hold shape, as they contain lots of butter and very little flour - chocolate chip cookies are a good example. The upside is that you won't need to shape them into round slices before you bake them, because once in the oven, they'll melt into one big more-or-less round ...

First, you will want to check the wiring and fuses in your current smoker to make sure it can safely handle the 1500w upgrade. Assuming that your wiring and fuses can handle the 1500w element, keep in mind how the system works in the first place. The heating element is controlled by the thermal measurement unit. A more powerful element would still turn ...

While performing on stage I adopted the "lob a full 360" approach but my juggling partner usually returned them. Now I would take it to my dump, tip, recycling centre, and present it to a member of staff. This has three advantages:- 1/ No wrapping or unpleasant bending. 2/ It's a day out. 3/ It becomes an S.E.P. [Someone Else's Problem] My brother, a ...
