comment How do I avoid gummy, unworkable pasta dough?
Agreed; most likely using a flour with not a high enough gluten percentage.

comment Should a [Ceramic] mug be left covered or uncovered during the tea bag steeping process?
@DavidRicherby I guess you are right in terms of knowing which is which, but if you are just trying to establish your own preference, temperature is part of that preference.

comment Extrusion pasta maker versus roller: which one makes the best pasta?
I'd have to say I didn't have good luck with the KitchenAid attachment. It was incredibly slow and I never got a good texture.

comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
I'd never known anyone to eat mango skin either, and then just about a week ago I saw a friend at work doing it. So you aren't totally alone :). To me, the main reason not to eat the skin is it doesn't taste good or have a pleasant texture.

comment What are the benefits of “fuzzy logic” in a rice cooker?
@CareyGregory not to be contrary, but I've had that unit for at least 12 years, use it a couple times a week, and it has been absolutely trouble free.

comment What are the benefits of “fuzzy logic” in a rice cooker?
Agree, had mine for years, pretty much bulletproof.
