comment a manual meat slicer
The idea is to get say, 3 - 5 lbs of turkey breast. Roast, slice, pull out 1 week's worth, and freeze weekly packets for the next 2 - 3 weeks. So, a regular trip to the deli for a slicing favor is not in the cards. Like I said in the original question, I was trying to avoid the purchase of a new electric appliance and wanted to go low tech.

@Chad - Not my housemates. They are set in their ways. It has to be easy for them and take the load off of me.

@ceejayoz - Exactly. The housemates are not into cooking and prep; they just want their deli style sliced lunch meats.

comment Flavor notes of olive oil varietals?
@Noldorin - One thing about some of the California olive groves and presses -- Not low quality! I've spent time in Europe and sampled excellent olive oils in Italy, Spain, Greece. And I purchase imports here. However, there are California varieties of excellent quality. One of my favorite California olive oils is by 'Stonehouse'; but I doubt that much, if any, makes it out of the San Francisco bay area.

Heh. It won't be stored for more than 3 weeks at most.

comment Flavor notes of olive oil varietals?
Regarding peppery olive oil; in and of itself is definitely not a problem. And @Noldorin, Northern California is producing some excellent olive oils these days. If you're ever in the wine country, (Napa, Sonoma, etc) don't bypass the olive presses.

comment Is there a way to make compressed watermelon without a vacuum machine?
@Michael - It was amusing synchronicity since I was going through my things_to_try tags on delicious and ran across the mtncookery tip and your question at almost the same time. I'll also have to give it a shot since it's prime Hermiston watermelon season here in Oregon.

I chose your answer because it's the only one covering "real world" experience in using an induction range.
