    Dusty,

    Zojirushi isn't available in Oz.

    For Tiger, they're available at Suzaran in Camberwell and a lot cheaper at Success Hardware and Kitchenware in Springvale, but the IH models aren't...

    Seems like the Zojirushi are the most highly touted rice cookers and Tiger is the Avis. And after comparing the plethora of models from the two brands (no thanks...

    It's great to combine lentils, beans with grains and seeds. In fact, it's essential if you're on a totally veg diet. This gives you a complete amino acid chain for protein which is otherwise very...

    That's me too. I have to (need to!) listen to the nuances of metal on stone to give me the "feel" and feedback. Perhaps many many years from now and after thousands more sharpening sessions I may...

    Has anyone compared which method retains the basil flavour best? From my experience dried basil loses much of it's "basil-ness". My very subjective evaluation is that hand chopped gives better...

    Sure, all the above comments are true and it's what I'd do as well. However, just out of compulsive curiousity, is there any way to maintain the geometry of an 'S' grind if one was just using stones?

    I've wondered about this too. As MAS4T0 said, with repeated sharpening and thinning the blade height is reduced. And with an 'S' grind like say in a Takeda, surely this would complicate how one...

    Yes, the knife can be thinned and the 'bolster' ground down but I really think the Ealy parer is a case where style has got the better of function. And if I ground down the 'bolster' then it's not...
