comment How can I keep pasta shapes intact?
I don't understand this at all. I never stir pasta, and I never get clumping or sticking. Perhaps when cooking spaghetti, one or two strands will be stuck to the pan after draining, but no more than that.

comment What is the basic technique for making tea with teabags and a mug?
@PinoPinto The intention isn't to get every last drop of flavour out of the teabag. The intention is to get a pleasant strength. I've added something about that to the body of the answer.

@MartinEpsz I went to a certain well-known online trader named after a South American river, searched for "oven thermometer", and they had them for under US$7.

For me, "builder's tea" means very strong, very sweet, made with ordinary teabags.

Replace "melting point" with "burning point". Oil is liquid at room temperature.

comment Unroasted coffee beans in the pantry, several years old: roast, toss, or other use?
@Megasaur it's not all about killing micro-organisms. While they're alive, they can create toxic and/or bad tasting substances. So, for example, if you let a piece of meat go rotten, then cook it thoroughly, you'll kill all the bacteria, but it'll still be poisonous and taste disgusting.

comment How do I wrap a spring-form pan in foil so it doesn't leak when I bake in a water bath?
@Marti lighter cheesecakes set with gelatin, for example this one: bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/strawberrycheesecake_74455 - personally I prefer a more rustic New York style cheesecake, rougher, heavier, set with eggs.
