I use an old heavy 3-quart alumnium sauce pan with a loose-fitting lid, canola oil, and high heat with about 1/2-cup of standard grocery-store yellow popcorn. I get the empty pot nice and hot, add the oil, then the corn, then the pot lid. I shake it occasionally, but basically let it go until the lid starts to rise off the pot, and I don't hear any more pops. Pour it into a large bowl, toss it with very fine sea salt, and go to town! It's also fantastic made with bacon fat, but you need to use slightly lower heat to keep it from burning and prepare for visitors: The smell of popcorn and bacon fat draws crowds.

Error Code Error Solution
F0 An internal error was detected. Disconnect power. Wait 5 seconds before reconnecting power. If the symbol appears again, call for service.
F2 The surface cooking area is too hot and has turned off. Remove the pans from the surface cooking area. "F2" will disappear when the surface cooking area has cooled. If you turn the surface cooking area back on and "F2" reappears, the cooktop is still too hot. Turn off the surface cooking area and allow it to cool.

F8 The surface cooking area has been in operation too long. The surface cooking area automatic shutoff was activated. Turn off the surface cooking area.
C1 The power voltage is too low. Turn off the cooktop. Wait 5 seconds, then turn it back on. If this continues, contact a qualified electrician.

Rice cooking


This morning I have encountered a great many questions on rice cookers, so I remembered the time when I had one and why I started cooking rice again.
The rice was beautifully cooked in the cooker, but it took up too much space on my kitchen bench. So I turned to pots and the micro.
Cooking rice in a microwave
  • take 1cup water
  • 2 cups rice
  • a pinch of salt
  • put the water, salt and rice together in a bowl with a lid
  • blend well
  • put the lid on the bowl
  • put the bowl into the micro
  • on the micro, keep full force and set the timer on five minutes
  • start the cooking
  • after five minutes open the micro, open the bowl and stir the rice with a fork.put the lid on again keep the micro going for another 10 minutes.
  • repeat the stirring prosess, until the rice is nice and fluffy andready to serve.

How do you open an alessi pepper mill to refill it?


You will need:- Large cooking pot- Grinder- Tongs- Hot pads or oven mitts (mitts are recommended)- CautionPut the grinder into a large cooking pot. Fill the pot with water until the grinder is completely submerged. Make sure that the plastic parts of the grinder do not touch the bottom or sides of the pot. On the stove-top bring the water in the pot to a boil. Once the water is boiling turn off the heat. The grinder is now very hot and full of hot water so be careful not to burn yourself. Using tongs remove the grinder from the water and hold it upside down to drain most of the trapped water back into the pot. Now turn the grinder upright again to trap any remaining hot water. Using your hot pads or oven mitts grasp the glass part of the grinder in one hand and the plastic part with the other hand and pry them apart. Let both parts of the grinder dry completely then refill it and snap the plastic top back on. These make great grinders for other spices as well such as coriander. Enjoy!

My burner gets excessively hot very quickly is this normal?


Hi,

That right front burner is an extremely hot burner by design. It is sold as a quick power burner. The rating on it is 12,000 btu's meaning it could easily boil a pot of soup in that time.

Here is a quote from the owners manual for your range

"There is a 12,000 BTU*
burner located in the right front position. These burners offer
higher speed cooking that can be used to quickly bring water
to a boil and for large-quantity cooking."

Use the back for slower smaller cooking and front for larger and quick heating.

I hope that helps.

Sealed pot lid


Heat the pot again -- the positive pressure inside will break the seal and allow the lid to come off.

Rival crock pot question


Most of the reviews for this product state that the lid is a bad fit. It is as though they had leftover lids from another model and just used them in this one. A replacement lid will be the same unless you have one custom made...but for that price you'd just get a new crock pot. You will lose a lot of moisture and some foods will be a little dried out after slow cooking all day and losing steam. You can either cover the cracks as best you can when you set it to cook, or return it and buy a better model. You'll find this problem on Rival's 6 quart crock pot as well. Read the reviews before you make your next purchase.
