comment Is there additional risk in cooking meat sous-vide from frozen?
Think I found that thread: modernistcuisine.com/cooks/forum/using-ingredients/… But, it does not talk about safety.

Can you provide a source to back this up?

comment a manual meat slicer
I was thinking a mandolin as well, but might be not be a good solution for those not proficient in using a knife. I feel like a mandolin is like the table-saw of the culinary world - can be dangerous.

comment Why did my Turkey Stock turn into gelatin?
+1 for freezing in ice cube trays - great way to quickly add flavour to a sauce.

comment Is there a difference in the ease of seasoning cast iron, forged iron, and carbon steel?
I found canola oil makes for a sticky coating. I have had better luck using peanut oil for seasoning the pan and to apply after each use.

comment Nonstick cookware or not?
@Pointy - good point on the carbon steel. After a few uses it will develop a seasoning which becomes non-stick so you can fry an egg. Also the carbon steel can go directly in the oven which is good for making frittata.

comment What kind of cookware is suitable for a glass ceramic stovetop?
Carbon steel is fine on glass ceramic. It has a smooth flat bottom which I think is a requirement for this type of cook top.

comment Buying my first set of pots and pans
I would add a pan than can go from the stove top directly into the oven such as a carbon steel fry-pan. I have a deBuyer Mineral B and think it is great; it cannot be put in the dishwasher though.

Agree with buying commercial/restaurant cookware. If you are into sauces, the Vollrath Tribute triple-ply saucier pans are great for making a roux and reductions.

comment Solution for uneven heating on an electric coil stovetop
I don't think you want to use cast-iron for candy making, but yes getting a thick bottom pot may solve the problem.
