comment Is kimchi a suitable addition to a noodle soup?
Depends on what kind of noodles you use and what else is in the soup. Some soups taste very good with kimchi or sauerkraut. You can cook your soup without kimchi and then add some to the first plate.

comment Is there a plastic bowl/dish that can withstand high temperature in the oven?
Never saw one. Googling for heat-resistant plastic bowls, pans etc did not provide me with any kitchenware that is both heat-resistant and plastic. Why won't metal, oven-capable glass or silicone bowls do?

comment Can I boil eggs in the same pot I'm boiling something else?
If you are not grossed out by the fact that eggs are/were smeared in hen excrement then why not (after washing).

comment Safety of coffee in thermal flask, long periods of time
By «really bad» I mean unacceptable for consumption, because either of: repulsive taste, unpleasant sensations in stomach, toxicity. AFAIK stale tea that went cloudy is all three.

comment Why doesn't chocolate go bad?
@MichaelatHerbivoracious Saturated fats are not saturated with oxygen, they just don't have double bonds between carbon atoms in fatty acids, and thus are saturated with hydrogen. Molecules saturated with hydrogen oxidize nicely (e. g. methane, ethane).

comment No oil on non-stick pans?
Oil is a heat conductor and a solvent for flavors, not merely a non-sticking agent substitute. It's like claiming that if you have a non-sticking teflon pot then you don't need water to make soup.

comment Why put a stone in the soup?
I guess it's customary and of no nutritional value, unless you're a lithovore

comment Are stainless steel frypans oven safe?
Teflon, according to Wikipedia en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teflon#Safety , is prone to releasing highly poisonous gases once heated to above 260°C (which ovens can pull off easily).

comment Why reoil a cast-iron pan after usage?
sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/… ← Here is a method of getting a nice smooth surface by coating the cookware in an oven with flaxseed oil 6 times. I didn't try it myself but to me it looks legit.
