At my house we use a butter knife. At the bottom of a walnut, there's always a small crack that we can slip the tip of the knife through, then twist the knife by the handle and the shells come apart. The little separator in the shell can also be easily removed with the butter knife. But other than that, we sometimes opt to simply grab two walnuts, and with ...

There’s nothing special about the mods, they are just various kinds of spherical molds. I am quite sure that the different materials has to do with different use cases (some have to be oven proof, others not), but probably more with what manufacturer offered which diameter. If the chef is aiming for a specific layer thickness, they’ll have to find the ...

A couple of factors make this not just about selecting tasks: their attention span is limited, especially if the main meal is in the evening and they're tired. a lot of cooking needs more effort at the beginning anyway (but the table may need to be got ready, and sauces/condiments taken to it). Even your younger one could watch (with their eyes only) to ...

I cracked a lot of walnuts when I was a child, as bowls of mixed, unshelled nuts including almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, and of course, walnuts, were our primary treats. This is the technique for your nutcracker. I never had anything better, and I did it alot Align the "split" in the walnut with the arms/jaws of the nutcracker. Apply ...

After the nutcracker type was added to the question… Those are frankly the worst type of nutcracker. You have no control over how far the jaws close & not much leverage - so you tend to try get each nut as far into the jaws as you can to get enough force, then squeeze two-handed with all the force you can - risking nut, knuckles & any nearby ...

In our family we use a screwdriver in the same way as the first answer uses a butter knife, (and I think that butter knife is more likely to be the safe choice.) But for those nuts that resist and for most other nuts, we use a 'waterpomptang', which is translated to pipe wrench or tongue-and-groove pliers, you need the kind with the two legs and the ...

Anything that you can put through a fine mesh strainer will likely not be too much of a problem in a whipper. In fact, the ISI website has a recipe for pumpkin mousse. You should find lots of advice on the web, as this technique was quite popular for a few years.

So I work for Corelle, Corningware & More (who own Pyrex and we sell/work with the instant pot company. From what I know, older Pyrex might be better suited because of the way it was made. However, as a previous commenter stated, we generally do not reccomend it. Now, I work retail so there might be better answers out there as to why. However, I do use ...

I ground peppermints in my grinder (the same type as shown above) and it did well but left peppermint stuck to the bottom. It was difficult to get out with a damp cloth, so the only way was to either melt the peppermint out with hot water or chip it out with a knife and I did not want to scratch up the inside. I was wondering if water was safe to put in the ...

Actually the product you mention, or at least a very similar product, is advertised for that purpose. They even sell some extra parts to make that easier - it's not quite clear to me what the extra parts are supposed to do, it's possible they just allow you to let the gas out at the end without making a mess. iSi Rapid Infusion set:
