comment Need to refrigerate vinaigrette?
Neither vinegar nor oil will grow bacteria, but together somehow they can? I don't buy it. "I've never had a vinaigrette turn solid in the refrigerator" -- you shouldn't be surprised in the least to find that olive oil gets sludgy when refrigerated. Maybe it isn't solid, but it sure doesn't flow easily. It's like molasses when refrigerated. -1.

comment how can I strip the surface from an iron alloy pan without harming the metal?
@spiceyokooko yeah I read the instructions. I think you don't understand what I'm trying to do here. No worries, I got the answer I needed.

"It appears you were supposed to wash off the beeswax" -- actually, no you're supposed to scrub it with salt to remove the 'excess' beeswax, not get rid of it completely. That's what my manual says -- which differs slightly from the one on the website.

@spiceyokooko your answer to my question about iron alloy pans is apparently "I've already answered that." Not helpful.

@spiceyokooko you're being borderline rude. The article I linked deliberately recommends using oven cleaner on cast iron pans to strip off the polymerized fats. Is there some reason that wouldn't work on an iron alloy pan?
