The ice cube tray is a great way to store stock. You just break out what you need.

comment What safety precautions should be taken when attempting to flambe at home?
Safety first...if the conflagration gets out of hand you shouldn't attempt to put a lid on the pan. You should smother with a large wet cloth or fire blanket otherwise your hands and wrists will get seriously burned if it flashes uncontrollably whilst attempting to place the lid. Trust me I've been there.

comment Cutting boards: What are some general tips on purchasing and using a cutting board?
Yep I think there's a bit of over eager closing here. Cooking unlike programming is subjective. We are not all the same chef.

comment How should I care for my knives?
I agree...glass or ceramic chopping surfaces are the death knell for you knifes. I also find the sound of the metal grinding against these surfaces sets my teeth on edge, but that's a psychological issue more than anything :)
