comment What kind of cookware can melt in a microwave? Is it safe to eat food cooked in a melted cookware?
@geff_chang If it melted in 180C it was very likely not metal :-)

What does microwave oven have to do with it? If you heat the oven to 180C and put plastic in it, it will melt! Do not use plastic vessels in a conventional oven, even if it is a microwave oven also. And if you do, and they melt it is probably a quite bad idea to eat the food.

comment long term wine storage
Unclear what you ask, you say "What should be taken into consideration?" so are you only asking what factors that should be considered, or do you also want answers to which stopper, temperature and so is best?

comment How to pan sear a thin steak?
@Hanno Fietz, Here the flipping technique works against this technique. You use flipping every 15-30 sec to get the inside to heat more evenly and reduce the total cooking time, with this technique, you want to maximize the outside heating so it is probably better to not flip.

comment Brining chicken wings
@rumtscho, Interesting! I have been told that salt dissolves better at higher temperature, wikipedia shows your old text book is quite right. Anyway my point was not salt it was other stuff. Everyone else also say heat helps to solve, why are we so wrong? Or is 'ease of dissolving' and solubility two different things? Must test at home!

comment How to pan sear a thin steak?
That should work if you are prepared to freeze the steak, but how do I get the steak flat enough to be heated, I need to press it when freezing? Think you need a blow torch to make it work?

comment Does cooking in a pressure cooker destroy nutrients?
No issue, we are here to help not to gain rep. I could not write answer since question was closed. I argued that maybe this was a borderline close (my comment have been removed??) and decided to throw in the links that I found just for info.

comment What does an overnight chill do to cookie dough, that a 4 hour chill doesn't?
Did you divide in half, was the dough ball shaped or flat? The size and shape of the dough will effect the time it takes to chill the dough all through. I guess that one big ball might need all night, but one large flat/thin shape might be OK in 4h or maybe even 1-2h.
