  1. I presume that's thinner than most cast iron. Maybe you subjected it to thermal shock. But it's not impossible for there to have been a defect when it was made.
  2. You either get enameled cast iron like Le Creuset or you get plain cast iron like lodge. One other differentiating factor would be how smooth the finish is. Personally I wouldn't bother buying really expensive plain cast iron. I've handled it in shops and it does feel nice (brands like Finex) but I'm happy with my Lodge pan. As nice as LC and Staub are (especially the latter imo) I don't think they're really worth the extra cost either (as much as I want a teal Staub cocotte I can't see how it's going to improve my chilli recipe). I always use a thick stainless steel pot for big batch cooking and it works well.
  3. Oh yeah if you want a pepper grinder everyone has gone a bit mad for this thing. I wouldn't pay it myself, but it does look significantly better than anything else on the market.

  5. Sort of like a sweet pancake/waffle flavour I guess? They're not a specific flavour per se. They have a really nice flaky texture which you can see in the video below: These are the ingredients: Wheat Flour (50%), Sugar (20%), Egg (20%), Shortening (10%)
  6. Which then got me thinking about these which might be my favourite 'biscuit' of all: If you happen to be in a Chinese supermarket, buy these, trust me, they're delicious. Also they have an amusing unintentionally racist name which is worth a chuckle.
  7. Yeah I saw this and was like wtf?! Imagine if Sancho hadn't noticed and passed it across to him and then it was offside. Madness.
  8. A club legend you say?
  9. I'm pretty sure he didn't call himself 'Salt Bae' it was a nickname given to him by someone on social media. He's got a gimmick and a sense of showmanship and people are willing to pay stupid money for it. Good for him. It's hard enough to standout in the restaurant industry. If people want to pay stupid money for a gold steak, then I respect his hustle for selling it to people. The restaurant doesn't even sell real wagyu (there are very few restaurants outside Japan that do). There will always be people with more money than sense. I don't see how this is any different to paying for women to hold up sparklers and bottles of champagne in the club for thousands of dollars.
  10. Surely the price was for the whole meal deal rather than just the Kiev. It seems to be on Ocado for £4.25 which makes a lot more sense: https://www.ocado.com/products/m-s-gastropub-chicken-kiev-516558011
  11. Is it just one breast? Seems like a hell of a lot of money. I also want to know if the fancy £2.50 garlic bread they do is any good.
  12. 20 sausages for a quid... That seems so wrong on so many levels.
  13. Lol I missed this. @schmojo explain yourself. Is smoked bacon out of the pack even safe to eat?
  14. Hmm, Varane not starting. Has anything been said about that?
  15. There was a legendary headline along the lines of: Young Boys Wankdorf erection relief EDIT: Found it http://m.espn.com/soccer/story?storyId=337901&src=desktop&wjb
