    Been a while since we had a Cleaver chat.

    What are the dimensions of that bad boy?

    Been a while since we had a Cleaver chat.

    Classic "#6" proportions and that grind looks really good to my eyes. I'm jealous! For $60? Good deal. Is it High carbon or stainless? If it's high carbon, just send it to me. You don't want to mess with that stuff. Trust me.

    Freshest Coffee to Order Online

    Former coffee snob here. Only "former", because circumstances prevent me from being an active one now. I won't get into it. I love coffee. I roasted all my own before things changed. I can tell you exactly how this whole thing started (IMO, of course). People measured their coffee using...

    I want to start baking more. cakes, bread, etc. I don't have or really want a stand mixer.

    It depends on your needs. I purchased an Electrolux (now Ankarsrum) almost 20 years ago. I had four kids at home. I made all our bread. I would make three large loaves at a time, each one taking 20 ozs. of flour. Add in the hydration for the type of bread and well, you do the math. It was...

    Been a while since we had a Cleaver chat.

    I'll just tack onto the cleaver chat here instead of starting a new thread. You're all here already! Kanetsune cleaver. In searching for a good, budget cleaver, I stumbled across this. The Kanetsune cleaver that measures 220mm blade length and is mono steel in SK5. They claim HRC 60+. I...

    Need budget SS small cleaver suggestions

    DOH!!!!!!! Lime wedges is a prime example. It will not be a dedicated lime wedge knife. I'll check out the Kai. Thank you. Interesting. I'll check it out. Thanks. I'll check that out. Thanks.

    Need budget SS small cleaver suggestions

    The HRC is probably about the same. I've considered the Shibazi in the past. For me, it's just too thick, especially for this purpose. I'd be interested in hearing about this non stick coating. I wasn't aware of that at all. What is it?

    Need budget SS small cleaver suggestions

    Seriously, there are two things: 1. The last thing I would want is for my wife to like it and abandon the santoku. She is carbon steel's worst nightmare. 2. I just want an inexpensive SS that I can hone with the ceramic stick that won't need immediate wiping and/or rinsing. It takes longer...

    Need budget SS small cleaver suggestions

    Oooooooooooooooohhhh, you are evil. The edge will still degrade from the acidic citrus and tomatoes. That's it. That's why it won't work. No, it won't. You should be ashamed. Stop it.

    Need budget SS small cleaver suggestions

    I find myself using my 3 carbon cleavers pretty much exclusively. Two are vintage Ho Chin Kee Lee, one is a fairly recent Shibazi. However, when preparing my wife's drink each night which involves cutting lime wedges, I reach for the Henckles santoku (wife's knife - she loves that thing, I...

    Oranges - What's best for flavorful zest and juice?

    Valencia, blood, cara cara, are not available now. They're all summer oranges. However, your suggestion spurned on a little research. I know a lot more than I did, so thanks for that.

    Oranges - What's best for flavorful zest and juice?

    Every year around this time I make my year's supply of cranberry/orange jam. I've done internet searches on oranges that are tops for "best zest", but always come up with nothing. I'm wondering if anyone here has any thoughts on this. In fact, I make a few things where I only use the zest, so...

    My first spatchcock chicken sucked - requesting suggestions

    Thanks for the link. Something new to try. Good thoughts here. I see how the grill would work so much better. Radiant heat all around. No convection in my crappy, cheap oven. So what I think is happening here is that the heat is just not getting to the bird evenly with the SS lasagna pan...

    My first spatchcock chicken sucked - requesting suggestions

    I was really excited to try this as my wife and I love roasted chicken. The whole concept of flattening out the bird, cooking it faster with better overall browning, and having the white meat done while not under cooking the thighs seemed like just the ticket. I prepared the bird easily with...

    Here is your daily dose of cringe

    No, no, no. Don't be ridiculous. You wouldn't be able to see your work surface underneath your product. Then what? You're not thinking this through.

    I need to sharpen my Trizor

    OK, I found out that chef's choice trizor claims R60 for its knives. It shouldn't be that hard, but man, it's really tough to sharpen. I've been spoiled by cheap high carbon steel.

    I need to sharpen my Trizor

    Yes, I've been putting it off for years. I bought a set back in the early 90s before I knew any better. Well, the steel is not soft. The last time I tried to sharpen a couple of them I just gave up. I was using an Edge Pro (yes, I got on of those before I knew any better) with the standard...

    Here is your daily dose of cringe

    OK, try to get some sleep tonight. Lay off Temu for a couple of days...you should be OK. The exposure hasn't been excessive. Let everyone in the household know that you never wake anyone up while they're having a night terror. This is important. It's a natural response to wake someone up...

    Here is your daily dose of cringe

    I don't have anything to say. Somehow, I just had to be here; to know we're all seeing this together. This is almost beyond cringe. Is this real? I don't know what to say. It hurts. Bad. Is there any way of stopping it?
