Re: Kitchen equipment.

Brian, would a "real" chef be caught dead in a tiny boat galley? :-)

Paul, as much as I appreciate good blades I can't see a 10" knife being worth $200 unless it was Damascus steel, hand forged, hand quenched, and made from an alloy that had damned little crude cheap iron in it.

But then again I'm an unreasonably cheap bastard, I refuse to pay $32 million for a Picasso, too.

Re: Kitchen equipment.

Shawn (t37chef) and chef2asil were kind enough last year to give me their opinions on the Shuns. It was my 40th bday present from my wife, though I got to pick them! They are outstanding knives, the best and sharpest I have ever used.

I actually use a set of Wurstuf Tridents (spelling??) on the boat, but the SHun's are about to take over and replace them. I still like the Tridents, but there is no comparisson to the weight and sharpness between the knives. I do use a Henkel Twin 4 star II for carving because it is a bit heavier blade and this Costco Gunther WIlhelm meat cleaver for chopping up briskets and the like. Different knives for different purposes I guess.

I am no expert. Shawn and chef2sail are. I am just harrasing them of course. However, pin the three of us on a BBQ, and I will give them a run for their money! Those boys could use to learn a thing or two about good ole Texas grillin'!!

Brian

Re: Kitchen equipment.

I've been vacillating for some time but I really do need to get a pressure cooker.

Any thoughts from my betters on preferred brands ?

(Oh heck, you can chime in too if you wish Brian )

Ref the Magma stackers .... we have a set of that and to be frank never use it. Too much of a pain in the arse to unpack. I find that I reach for anything but.

Re: Kitchen equipment.

The best gear in the world won't improve low quality ingredients and lousy technique.
That requires booze. Lots of it.

..... absolutely but back to pressure cookers ...



Kuhn Rikon ... very highly regarded I believe but somewhat ouch when it comes to buckazoids.

Next question is size .... remembering that we are but two.

Re: Kitchen equipment.

Re: pressure cookers, here's the one i got

Amazon.com: GSI Outdoors Pressure Cooker: Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: GSI Outdoors Pressure Cooker: Sports & Outdoors




GSI halulite 3L

For my purposes of cooker selection, smallest is best and this is it. It'll cook a pound of dry beans and no more. It's not feature heavy but I've used it half to death and the closure is a lot less aggravating than the old-fashioned kind.

Re: Kitchen equipment.

Interesting indeed Bunny but too small for my needs. While I only want to feed two people that still means something big enough for a whole chook or a small roast and I'll often do soups or casseroles that are more than a couple of servings.

I have a Fagor that I love and the price was good. Get the biggest one you have room for.
And you want stainless.
