The usual: oven/stove, microwave, charcoal grill.

 

Specialty/luxury methods: George Foreman grill, electric griddle (I like making more than one pancake at a time). Pretty sure we have a waffle iron and a sandwich press grill from the 90s around here.

Oven, gas range, toaster oven, crockpot(s), sous-vide machine, waffle iron, microwave oven, open flame, hot water, coffee maker, sun + magnifier, hot light bulb... Maybe more?

 

I suppose, if I absolutely had to raise the temperature of food for some reason, I could also sit on it.

Let's see...

 

Stove top, oven, microwave, toaster, electric grill, 3 crockpots, 2 big roasters, toaster oven, hibachi, multi fuel camp stove, one of those gimmicky portable stoves that runs on wood, large firepit with grill and a little ledge for stuffing wrapped veggies down in charcoals (currently in need of repair), 1800w induction plate, 30,000 btu turkey fryer (although I just make beer on it), superman style eye lasers, electric griddle, an older propane grill, waffle iron, electric water boiler, flambe torch, insta pot, and I'm considering getting an air fryer. 

 

I honestly thought this would be a bigger list, I might be forgetting something. We like being able to cook as many different dishes as possible and having the ability to do things like make a dozen different dishes at once for large gatherings.

Oh jeez, I probably have waaaaaay too many.  Let's see.  Stove/Oven (with broiler), microwave, grill, smoker, sous vide, waffle iron, air fryer, crock pot, pressure cooker, electric griddle, electric soup pot thing we use for making pasta sometimes, alcohol and hotplate warmers for a fondue set, fire pit in a pinch, and does a food dehydrator count? if so then 15? I may be forgetting something.  the Mrs and I have a thing for kitchen gadgets...

 

And from my college days, I also have a clothes iron ;)

coffee pot, car engine. 

Car engine... now that brings back some memories.  Nothing like warming up frozen burritos while you're driving to work.

@Cygnwulf reminds me: I think we also have a couple of cans of Sterno for keeping food warm, and certainly some candles for (small) sources of heat/flame.

* You could heat food in it, not just poison, though I wouldn't. :unsure:

 

manifold burritos are a thing! :)

Sad you can't use Kryptonite scented candles anymore. [It says so right on the package.]

I soooo read that without the period, and instantly though "jeez, you guys in Saskatchewan really will grill anything".  Charcoal fired bbq waffles. 

 

Almost sounds tasty, actually.. 

 

If you have one of those old style cast iron waffle makers you can. :poke: Nah, mine's mostly for meat with the rare veggies and even rarer pizza.

May 27, 2019 Question:

 

Today is Memorial Day in the United States, where we remember those who have died in the service of our country. Today's question, have you served or are you a veteran of your Nation's military? [Thank you by the way]

 

I have not, and I am not.

 

If we are talking about family, I have two cousins who served in the army, one of whom was deployed to Iraq on at least two occasions. I know that I had a great-uncle who was killed in France during World War II (my mother has his purple heart). I believe she had a second uncle serving in the war, but I don't remember off-hand what happened to him.

What wavelength?

 

For cooking purposes I like to go with something around the 0.01 to 10 nm range. But because normal human eyes can't perceive that I also like to modulate between that and a nice red beam at around 700 nm. That way my cooking is still extremely quick, but bystanders still have a modicum of safety as they can actually see where the beam is. Safety first and all that.

Hmm, I'd have thought that high-energy photons would cause too much ionization relative to the amount of heating. But you're the expert.

For reference, how long would you need to stare at a frozen turkey to properly thaw and cook it?

 

Since you don't want to incinerate it (which laser eyes do well), but slowly cook it with even heat, it's gotta take a while.

 

[Imagines Superman spending a whole afternoon staring at a turkey instead of, you know, SAVING THE WORLD!]

 

Gives new meaning to "A watched pot never boils".

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, .February 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.
