HALLOWEEN'S OVER AND THERE ARE NOW 53 SHOPPING DAYS LEFT UNTIL CHRISTMAS /ck/!
Post what's on your wish list this year, or some cooking hardware you already own but are very proud of.
Has that Le Creuset Dutch Oven really caught your eye? What about getting your fingers proverbially wet with an Anova Precision Cooking sous vide machine ? Or how about some Thermapop Instant Thermometer Stocking Stuffers?
For me, it's to finally step up from using my 1980s-vintage hand mixer to a Kitchenaid Artisan stand.
This is what I want for christmas. Or something similar.
Truecooks gear desu senpai.
You appeared to have forgotten to answer the question that I asked:
Why can't you toast your sandwich in a frying pan or skillet? What exactly is it that you think this does better?
I wasn't griping about it being a uintasker--I was asking what you think it does differently compared to a pan.
What makes you think your sandwich requires pressing in the first place?
If you do think your sandwich needs to be pressed for some reason then why can't you do that with your hands, or the spatula you'd use to flip it in the pan?
I posted the press. It's mostly because it's a lot faster when you want to make a bunch of sandwiches. My friends and I like to make cheese sandwiches and dip them in our soup. So we'll make 20 at a time. Also the juice drains out instead of staying in the bottom of the pan. It makes the sandwiches dryer and crispier. Which is better when dipping imho.
