comment Slow cooked chicken
There's no need to add any liquid. Whenever I slow cook a whole chicken (along with vegetables), there's always plenty of liquid in the cooker when the chicken is taken out.

comment Why microwaves do not kill harmful bacteria as well as boiling?
Maybe the professor meant spores? Or maybe poisons which have already been released into the food by the bacteria?

comment Smoke point and toxicity
If you're using olive oil, your family can only benefit from this. You're certainly not going to give them cancer from cold olive oil! Actually, if the oil is smoking, then there may well be 'free radicals' within the oil which can be dangerous, so you should cook at a lower temperature. The oil exists only as a heat transfer medium: if you stir your eggs, you will get scrambled eggs, and if you don't, you'll get an omelette.

It doesn't matter; the water comes from the vegetables and from the chicken itself. Believe me!

comment What are the advantages and disadvantages of various sugars/substitutes?
Xylitol and Erythritol belong to the group of "sugar alcohols" which are similar (but slightly different) to "regular" sugars such as glucose. They certainly have a calorific content! Xylitol is often found in chewing gum - aside from the cooling effect mentioned above, it also helps heal dental caries.

comment Cleaning oil sprayer pump
I was assuming that the sprayer was made of glass, not plastic, although these days plastics are less susceptible to damage from acetone or similar.

comment Can onion based recipes such as bolognese be cooked in slow cooker?
@Paul Lassiter: One can make very tasty dishes with a minimum of effort as well as using cheaper cuts of meat. One uses less electricity and one doesn't heat the house in the summer (by not using the oven). Your mileage may vary, of course. But a slow cooker is not a panacea: certain cooking techniques will not work in a slow cooker.

comment Removing the skin from chicken before or after cooking?
The first boil removes extraneous fat and possible dirt.
