Love to cook, I don't like long times and the mess.

I have developed techniques to reduce the time, mess, dishes and develope great flavors for regular cooking and my fav, one pot meals. From the stove to the oven, to pressure cooking and slow cooking. It all works for me. I golf on the weekend and love to come home to my meals almost all done.

You should see my spice rack!

comment How do you properly drain the grease after browning ground beef?
++1 Tilting the pan and using paper towels/napkins also solves the (how to dispose of the fat problem). I hate leaking garbage bags and extra dishes to wash. I also use tongs.

comment Can I use an induction cooker to restore silica gel's water absorbency?
Lastly, It seems you speculated on my knowledge of the subject. It's no more dangerous than baking a cake in a cast iron pot that is on top of a burner. Even baking cakes needs safety precautions. Sources, on the internet, craft stores or even companies who sell SG. Did you know the cheapest form of SG is Kitty Litter. Works great to control humidity in closets, vitamin & prescription bottles, crispness in food, chips, cookies, Japanese wasabi chips, I use it for camping, you can put in your silver or jewelry cases to slow down tarnishing. I could go on, but I digress.

Aluminum is a good conductor of regular heat, but the question was about Induction Electromagnetic Heat which alum cannot conduct. The transfer heat from cast iron to foil is not significant enough to be a concern. My point was to avoid contact with the Cast Iron, due to the quick heating of electromagnet energy. The foil would be a protective layer and SG properties can degrade if heated too high, absorb any oils on the bottom of the pot (seasoning) or just pick up the iron color making it more difficult to determine when the SG is dried out. But I appreciate you telling me what I meant.

Yes, but he did not specify whether the silica gel was in a little plastic container, pouch or loose. I didn't want to take a chance.
