On 5/24/2015 kitty4me said: I go to Williams-Sonoma on Sundays for their Technique Classes. They cook we eat. So I was got on the subject of the POAF and PTFE with an Employee. He told me Williams-Sonoma doesn't carry any Cookware that contains POAF or PTFE. No one in the world carries any cookware with POAF. Continue Reading

On 5/21/2015 Bhvbum said: I have found in my business where I need to keep coffee and hot water for tea, hot, a thermos with a GLASS liner works best. The steel and plastic ones just dont work..... Just as an experiment I filled about 2/3 of the way a pump stainless steel liner thermos last night at 5:45PM with water and I mixed it up and pumped out the water and it was 147.6F. This morning at 7:20 AM I pumped out some water and it was in the stream coming out at 129.8F. This gives a good indication as to how well stainless steel works. By the way I do not know anyone that has their hot wat... Continue Reading

On 5/21/2015 MissM said: If you are referring to the egg whites in a carton, I have a carton in my fridge. I make egg white omelets for breakfast. Anyway, they state on the carton they are heated during the pasteurization process and not recommended for Angel food cake or meringue. Glad you asked as I do use them when baking other things and wouldn't have thought twice about using them in an angel food cake. Always learning on this forum! I pasteurize eggs at a temperature that allows all recipes with raw eggs to be used..Meringue, Souffles. etc.. Continue Reading

remember with your sous vide unit you can pasteurize your own eggs..You can use them for any purpose you would use raw eggs but they are perfectly safe. You can separate the whites and use them for meringue or whatever you want. Continue Reading

I have found if I boil water and pour in my glass thermos it will still be hot 8 hrs later. I don't add tea but let folks make the tea when ready because the water is always hot. Also I pour a little boiling water in the thermos for a bout 15 sec to heat it up, pour that out, and fill with the boiling water. Curious as I had glass models and switched to stainless and have never had liquids maintain the... Continue Reading

How many of you have made the tortilla soup in your machine?. Even customer service was well aware of the residual smell from that which ordinary cleaning would not get rid of .. Solution they offered was 3 or so hours soak in AC vinegar. Continue Reading
