Tools For Cooking
(with comments)

At Mental Floss, Miss Cellania compiled a bunch of photos (and links) about Cooking With Tools.

My favorite is Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Made With an Iron.

    Grilled cheese with an iron! Did you ever watch Benny and Joon with Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson? A Fabulous Movie!

    We did the GCS with an iron a few times while in school. Used the butane torch to cook a number of items.

    Rich Client.

    I just opened a butique in second life. Rich Client will go far! Go for the property grab in second life! Everyone get on their buggies and mark their territory, the future is digital.

    You can make home made ice cream instantly with that common household item--liquid nitrogen.

    Oh, no. I'm sorry. I posted that before I read the whole article and saw that the ice cream issue was covered. Never mind.

    We have a top profesional chef here in the Uk that in a drive to find the perfect way to make certain dishes resorts to liquid nitrogen for ice cream and making chocolate bars using a vacuum cleaner!

    his name is Heston Blumenthal and has several books on Amazon.. clasic

    It is still hard to beat the basic principle of the old Presto Hot Dogger.

    My brother had a similar Experience during basic training: Boiling a pot of soup on a iron turned upside down in a boot. I'm not sure how long it took to boil but it worked. It sounds like cooking pizza on a 40 watt light bulb!

    I will have to investigate the chocolate bars made with a vacuum cleaner!

    Thanks for the link.

    Damn Yuppies ! (grin)

    I'll tell you what else an old iron is good for, and that is welding black agricultural poly-pipes or making garden watering-system components (eg manifolds) that otherwise cost $100+.

    Cut the end faces square, heat both pipes by pushing against the base of the iron until small collars form, then simply press together and hold still until it cools a little. The weld will be STRONGER than the surrounding pipe.

    Oh, guys ... and then sneak the iron back into the laundry cupboard and try to pretend you don't know what happened to it (good luck).

    Boeing pilots windows are heated to prevent icing over in lousy weather. The glareshield (dashboard) is flat black to absorb solar radiation and cut glare. MREs (Meals, Ready to Eat...simulated food for troops on a plastic pouch), when placed on the glaresheild and leaning on the window of a KC-135 become substantially more edible after about 30 minutes.

    Cool, Bisbo - I didn't know you flew tankers, too.
