@Reno: If you're lazy and rich, get the ultrasonic. If you're just lazy, the rubber ball is really pretty easy.

comment Cleaning a Sieve
FWIW, it's usually dishwasher for me too, but every so often I get a build-up, usually after a few instances of trying to pass through something thick and/or heavily seasoned (salt/pepper/spice grains).

comment How to dry out mash - added too much milk
@Joe: I can assure you that the risotto was "properly made" (it's not exactly that hard to make). The most commonly-used definition of "creamy" is containing cream; resembling cream is also a definition but the "creaminess" of risotto is a completely different animal, unless it's got some soft cheese mixed in.

comment Is Greenpan safe?
That is correct, @Bob, although I think the point was that GreenPan seems to be implying that their pans are safer than Teflon, a claim which should be met with suspicion given the fact that the coating leaches off. Also, YMMV, but my Teflon has lasted upwards of 3 years with moderate use, which seems to be better than what people are saying about the GreenPan.

comment Would these ingredients work for a Gift In a Jar?
I don't suppose you have a recipe in mind that you could point us to? Sugar usually goes in with the wet ingredients, so this could be a problem, but maybe there are certain types of cakes where you can just dump it all into the mixing bowl...

comment How to dry out mash - added too much milk
@Joe: Most risotto is made with at least one dairy product so it actually is creamy in the sense of fat; I actually had a hell of a time finding good dairy-free recipes for the family last month, and although I suppose I might still call those "creamy", it's very clearly distinguishable from the dairy kind of "creamy".

comment How to dry out mash - added too much milk
@Marti: I think in practice, cream does contain lactose because the separation process isn't perfect. It's low in lactose compared to milk but I guess if somebody has severe allergies then that's not good enough.
