comment Reasonable level of inaccuracy in thermometer?
@NRaf: it's even worse. The tolerance is always 7.5°C, no matter whether you're measuring 15 or 150 degrees! I'd call this rather an estimation than a measurement. 5% is really bad.

comment Reasonable level of inaccuracy in thermometer?
@Jefromi: the normal tolerance for measuring devices is always given in % of the max measurable value. OP is talking about an electronic thermometer which surely has a max measurable temperature. Therefore it's absolutely reasonable and not fishy at all that the vendor specifies the tolerance in %.

comment A vegan alternative to Quorn?
Did you try vegetables instead of using highly processed factory plastic food as meat replacement? Beans? Lentils? Grains?

comment How reproduce meat flavor
If you don't like to eat meat, then accept that you don't eat meat. All those meat-lookalike replacements like tofu sausages and stuff are just ridiculous. Love your veg, grains and stuff. Period. And being vegetarian doesn't change anything with dead animals. Think why cows produce milk and where the leather for your belt comes from. If you're serious, go vegan. If not, enjoy quality meat. And eat real burgers.

comment What are the best burger buns available in the UK?
Make them yourself. Here in Germany, all bought buns are crap whereas self made buns turn junk food into a truly luxury dish. Sample recipe: ploetzblog.de/2013/02/09/…

comment What German product is the equivalent of cream in a recipe from the United States?
Sure. He also adds gelantin powder. Another classic ingredient to bolignese sauce. He must be a true expert for italian cuisine.

comment What German product is the equivalent of cream in a recipe from the United States?
If you're cooking Bolognese sauce, you don't need any cream at all. Drop the recipe, it's rubbish. Bolognese sauce is meat, sofritto, tomatoes, herbs, wine. But surely no cream.

comment How do I know if food left at room temperature is still safe to eat?
To be absolutely safe, I'd recommend to stop eating anything. And also breathing could be dangerous. I' d be interested how you're planning to create a sour dough culture when you keep your mixture in the fridge. Seems to be a US issue. In Europe, people seem to be more robust and don't need their food to be chilled all the time...

comment What's the minimum time to cook raw prawns?
I guess he knows what boiling is but finds it strange to BOIL prawns. Usually they are not boiled but prepared in a pan. Fried. Roast. Pan-fried. Broiled. Sauteed...

comment Gas or electric oven with gas stove
@sdg: absolutely correct. Induction us as fast as gas, more efficient, dead easy to clean and doesn't explode your house on a defect.

comment How can I make my homemade potato wedges crispy?
While it's not directly potato wedges: I love the crunchy potatoes of Mr. Oliver. Parboiled, shaken in the pot, then pushed a bit and baked: jamieoliver.com/recipes/vegetables-recipes/… You could of course season them to taste with some cajun powder.
