comment Where can I buy borosilicate (Pyrex) bakeware in the U.S.?
@dfeuer: You're confusing the definition of "toxic" according to organizations like the FDA (it is completely safe to cook with) vs. the EPA (dumping large amounts of boron waste into a lake or landfill = bad idea). If you read my original comment a little more carefully, you will surely notice that it was referring specifically to waste disposal and not food safety.

comment Does meat need to be washed before preparation?
Have any of you ever been sick, period? And if the answer is yes, as it undoubtedly must be, then how are you so sure it wasn't from cross contamination? Even if you've truly been fine, it's pretty much rule #2 of food safety that just because something hasn't made you sick before, doesn't mean it's safe (rule #1 being "when in doubt, throw it out"). And you've neglected to point out what you think the benefit of this practice is, which makes this answer not only somewhat dangerous but also unhelpful.

comment Which type of flour would be better to use in this case?
Depending on the locale, the "corn flour" might not be flour at all. In the UK, that just refers to cornstarch, which is not an appropriate substitution at all. If it's actually cornmeal then it might be OK.

comment How long will durian smell linger?
@belisarius: Sure, it has a rather... unique smell, but fundamentally it's the same thing - particles from the food get dispersed in the air, and the smell fades away as the concentration gets lower (i.e. circulation of outside air).

You're obviously trying to be funny, but we have very specific guidelines for the food safety tag. I tried to edit your question into something that might stay open, but honestly, it's like any other smelly thing - it depends on the size of your area, ventilation, etc.

Even if it's not unsafe, it's going to taste awful...ler. Are you that desperate to save yourself $1?
