DailyDirt: Additional Challenges To Making Dinner

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

For some folks, boiling water isn't a simple task. Others can whip up a delicious meal before a pot of water can boil. Cooking skills can be amazingly good or mind-bogglingly bad, but there are some people who just don't want to do things simply, and they turn cooking into a kind of obstacle challenge. Sure, there are reality TV shows that put ridiculous time pressures on cooking a 7-course meal or restrict ingredients to rare delicacies. For pure fun (or sometimes necessity...), though, some cooks are forgoing a stove or conventional cooking devices to make their meals. Here are just a few examples. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

    "people who want to avoid nonstick (it's toxic)"

    There are no dangers associated with non-stick until the temperature gets very high (450F or higher, if you have birds as pets; up around 650F when they start getting dangerous for people). You can reach those temps relatively easy with high heat on a burner, but a rice cooker isn't ever going to be a danger.
