revised What's the best water temperature for making Pizza dough
Didn't make it clear that it is dry yeast and not fresh yeast to proof.

I hope we are talking about dry yeast, I didn't make it clear in the question, correcting now.

Interesting angle about yeast, I'd like to know more. So, basically as cold as it gets for the water that goes into the flour, what could be the symptoms if I use warmer water?

comment How to determine perfect pan temperature for steak?
Interesting, the last one I was doing pan only (see the update), was 1.2" and came out pretty well. I don't have an instant thermometer but I see I'll need to get one.

@SAJ14SAJ: What is the limit of when the steak is to thick and needs to go into two-stage cooking?

My bad, that one is electric not induction. Corrected.

@rumtscho I imagine the difference in temp applies to thickness though. For example 2 inch would require quite a lot less temp than 1 inch not to get burned. So, I'm basically left with "oil just smoking", "cube of bread browned in 5 seconds", how big the bread cube?

@rumtscho Those signs are ok. But how about a comparison between 1inch medium-well, and 1 inch medium-rare. Can any guidance be offered for this? It would be easier to experiment that way. Or does the pan have to be same temp, just the difference in how long you cook? When does the pan temp need to change, in which circumstances?

Consider 1 inch, room temperature, medium rare.

On test.de the prices do indeed vary a lot for the similar quality rating. There are a number of those over $120, which is a bit terrifying, considering they weren't much more rated than the one from $40 range. I'm yet to go through America's Test Kitchen.

What I miss on most review sites is the durability factor, which I hope the one you posted will have. Most review sites focus on how it works now, right after the purchase. I'm ready to pay premium for any product based on the durability factor.
