When you say 'put some water over plate' do you mean in a bowl?

comment Making crumpets in advance?
I've never had clotted cream and jam on a crumpet. Always on scones. But then you are apparently from London, you're all a bit weird ;)

OK. When you work out how to make egg yolk hot without cooking it, I'm all ears.

comment Translating cooking terms between US / UK / AU / CA / NZ
@joe removing it is correcting it. It's not a matter of opinion: 'biscuit' does not mean 'Digestive biscuit' in the UK. A Digestive is a biscuit, but not all biscuits are Digestives. I don't 'disagree', it is simply wrong.

comment How can I ensure a juicy beef burger patty?
A true beef burger has nothing but salt and pepper added. Also, if you are cooking to rare or medium rare as TFD suggests, be very sure of your source of meat.

Some idea of what you have previously tried would be good, to determine if you are having a specific problem.

comment Why is there a small piece of iron sponge in my electric water boiler?
Perhaps it's easier/cheaper to just whack a sponge in there than to rough up one side of the steel?

It could very well be there to provide nucleation points for bubbles to form and prevent superheating, yes.

@BrownRedHawk they are a little bigger, but the main difference is they are more pointed.

comment What gives a good bagel its crust?
@crmdgn barely any steam will come off slightly damp bagels. I would try heating a pan along with oven, then pouring boiling water into it when you put the bagels in.

Are you introducing any steam into your oven?

comment Browning beef for beef stew?
Take your time, it's a stew not a stir fry. The better the crust, the better the flavour. Obviously don't cremate it. Here's a pretty good example: dizzypigbbq.com/images/RecipeImages/Stroganoff/3BrownedBeef.jpg

You don't need to waste the egg whites. Make meringue!
