    Not sure if vegetable oil is good for oiling your cutting board. Apparently the oil can grow bacteria and probably poison everyone. Maybe linseed oil is best.

    I've never succeeded in zesting a lemon with a box grater. Most of the lemon sticks to the box grater. So, I bought a little lemon zester thingy (which works, wonderfully).

      +Mordicai Thank you for that input, I guess I'm too used dried herbs and spices as the 'fresh' ones where I am (Australia) are ridiculously expensive and wilting. So a mortar and pestle is useless to me.

    • Mordicai
      Mordicai Month ago

      I like to use dried rosemary since I can't find the plant itself at my stores, and keeping it whole is very distracting when eaten, so I like to use a mortar and pestle to crush it up so it's more consistent like thyme and oregano. It's also good for making a dry rub depending on what you use.

    How about the cast iron skillet set as opposed to the nonstick set , that serves two purposes cooking and protection and will (not might) last a lifetime , truly i believe you need both cast iron and nonstick , also reminder if you the cast iron you can use metal utensils for nonstick use wood or plastic ,

  • Dr. M. H.
    Dr. M. H. 2 months ago

    Sorry Gordon. A nonstick (teflon) coatings break down @ heats high enough to properly sautee, making toxic chemicals is the process. Better to use properly seasoned cast iron. It's nonstick, adds iron to your diet & their heft will get your biceps buff

    Get a decent 10" chefs and forget the POS serrated slicer. And don't get POS knives like these with a balluster. After you become proficient it will be in the way so much as to render the knife useless.

    Disagree about the frying pan Ramsey. Instead of a non stick frying pan you should go with a cast iron one. Non stick coatings have harmful chemicals that can create vapors or be absorbed into the food.
