comment Knife cleaning: safe to do without soap?
Why does the book want to avoid soap? I mean, yes, in theory, with hot enough water and appropriate scrubbing to remove any particulates you could be OK (though I'm not clear that most residential hot water systems are actually hot enough for that), but why not use soap? It helps move things along and get things off the knife. What's the supposed advantage to to not using it?

comment How do you protect a pizza peel?
A note on mineral oil: if you need some, buy it at the drug store, not the kitchen store! Kitchen stores will sell it to you at 3 or more times the price that the drug store will charge, and it's the same product.

comment What do I need to know when moving from an electric hob to a gas hob
@Orbling - agreed that it's a safety issue, but as long as you aren't in the habit of putting random limbs or objects on the stove, you won't have a problem. As for kids, well, mine are now 10 & 7, and neither one had a problem with 'don't put your hand on the stove'. Ordinary care will prevent any mishaps.

@Orbling - I'm told that one way to deal with the speed problem on electrics is to keep multiple burners hot at different temperatures, then move the pan from burner to burner as needed. This is only workable if you have enough spare burners.
