comment Are electric knives used in foodservice?
Pretty much anything boneless should work pretty well. Definitely seen them used for hot pastrami/brisket which is soft-ish.

comment How long can fish be left out?
@Doug - different method. Their cod in that case started fresh, and was likely cut thin enough to dry out before 'wet' spoilage set in. Often accompanied with a large amount of salt. Alternately wood-smoke, to also help dry/cure/etc.

comment Gas or electric oven with gas stove
-1 (virtual downvote) your stated negatives for an electric hob mostly apply to the traditional coil models. Halogen or even newer induction models are very different.

comment How can I harden the centre of a partly cooked christmas cake
Not answering so much as probing the problem: have you cooked this cake before? In the same pan, and same oven? Once, using foil to stop the top browning (when I was younger) I covered the hole in the bunt-style pan. That is crucial for air convection...

comment Cooking stove vs cooking on open camp fire
You can probably find wood on the way to your campsite. Many non-urban gas stations have it, as well as supply stores along your driving route to get there.

comment Achieving perfection via manual drip-brew coffee method
Single most important item missing from the list is freshness of the coffee; and freshness of the grind. If you use prepackaged already-ground coffee for example, your day-over-day taste change may be as much related to staleness as to the other factors.

comment Food that does not spoil, lightweight, energetic and balanced
@Stefano - a Bayfield 29. Full-keel cruiser. Is/was a good solid starting boat, may trade up as the kids get bigger.

@Joe - I remember tongue-in-cheek article close to Y2K about fruitcake being the perfect survival food. And they can be used for boat ballast as well! :-)
