Tough cuts become tender because collagen breaks down over time in the presence of heat and moisture, which usually takes several hours. When cooking that long the meat heats up to be the same as the oven temperature, so in this case internal meat temperature = oven temperature.

Basic electric tea kettles primarily work by turning off when a bimetallic switch in the handle (probably at the bottom, where it will require some steam pressure to have steam travel down to) of the kettle is sufficiently heated to deform one of the metals, turning off the kettle. This switch is heated by steam, and the element itself is typically turned ...

If we go with the 2 hour rule, then you have about an hour to get it back up to a safe temperature. So either turn the crockpot on high 'til you get it back over 140°F, or remove some of the broth and use another method to heat it and then re-combine the two.

Pure water boils when its vapour pressure equals atmospheric pressure. Pure water will only boil at 100 degrees at sea level if the atmosperic pressure happens to be 1 atmosphere (760mm of Hg) The boiling point of water therefore depends on two things. 1. How pure it is. 2. What the atmospheric pressure is where the water is being boiled. In general terms ...

Electric kettles regulate their set temperature with either a thermocouple or a resettable thermal fuse. Both devices are likely good to within 10% of their nominal value, and are affected by the amount of lime scale on the bottom of the pot. That means that the only way to be sure is with a thermometer; used not just once, but every week or two.

Seconds, not minutes. Just the act of pouring the water will cool it slightly. At sea-level pure water will be 100C at a full boil, the temperature will drop immediately when it's no longer being heated. This is unscientific at best, but just for giggles I put an accurate digital thermometer into a room temperature mug, and brought a couple of cups of cups ...

Assuming your kettle causes the water to boil (rapid escape of gas/bubbling) and that the water you are using is from a tap (not distilled) then it is very difficult to say exactly the temperature of your water at boiling, but it will be a small amount over 100 Celcius degrees (as impure water has a higher boiling point). To know when your water has reached ...

~~ Isn't there still a movement afoot, longneck, which promotes the preparation of foods (including meats) at surprisingly low temperatures over longer periods of time instead of higher temperatures lickety-split? I think so. And I think it's got a pretty solid footing. Room temperature seems to be the proverbial culprit, generally speaking. But the kind ...

The important temperature would be what temperature it was at when the power was turned back on. The official recommendations are to keep high risk foods out of the 'danger zone' of 40°F to 140°F for longer than 2hrs (cumulative). If portions of the pot were at 140°F after being heated for an hour, and there was the time for it to cool down. (and the time ...

The typical internal temperature at which most bread products are "done" is between 175-200˚F. For a normal pancake batter that is enriched with butter, milk, and/or egg, it would likely fall at the lower end of that range. However, the browned outer crust has likely reached significantly higher temperatures, in the 250-400˚F range.

First of all, most guidelines for cooking pancakes recommend using a griddle temperature of 350°-375° F. Cooking at lower temperatures yields tough pancakes. Cooking at MUCH lower temperatures would keep your pancakes from forming in any real way. If there is egg in the recipe for your pancakes, you would need to cook them to an internal temperature of at ...

I can't tell from your question whether you are asking what temperature you should set your refrigerator to or asking how you go about setting it to a different temperature. The answer that Grey Dog provided is correct concerning the target temperature. In case you were actually asking HOW to change the settings, let me add this - if your dial has numbers ...

First, figure out the temperature that you want to run the fridge at (35-38F is standard). Then, buy a refrigerator temperature gauge. Work the dial up or down accordingly until it's where you need it. The dial can even have worn off numbers, and this method will still work.

You always treat rabbit like chicken ;) temps are same. cook well. internal temp 165 . 2pounders are best for pan frying. Stew ..braising... baking..roasting.. all great ways to make rabbit :)
