    I don't care who you are or what fancy microwave grill you have, if you're microwaving burgers and steaks you are a godless heaven who doesn't deserve love.

    Why the F*** does this need subtitles? They are speaking F***ing English!!!! Plus the spelling on the subtitles is crap.

    My mind can't possibly comprehend how a cup makes something taste better. Maybe I just don't have an IQ high enough to understand its decription. Poetry was never my strong suit

    yes, as a chef I have transcended the normal and have become an abnormal entity in this god-forsaken earth.

    Betty Bossy is a Swiss brand, so no wonder the gadgets cost a fortune.

    Just letting you guys knows, I ended up buying the Norlan whisky glass though not the Vaild version over black friday. I had one of those "hey those are the glasses from sortedfood can i try them?" at my friend's house. I can't believe it, but these glasses really do make whisky taste better. I don't think the black vs clear version makes much difference though (friend has both versions).

    it makes sense that number 3 was 35 quid... the amount of research and development that went into that product probably asks for a price that high

    I went to amazon to buy one of the grill plates, then i saw the price, F THAT! 40 quid is way to much.

    airline crew might like the toasty maker a lot of hotel rooms have microwaves and maybe a kettle and thats nice and small and will fit easily into a suitcase there not paid well enough to eat room service and it's not included in the remuneration.

    I genuinely want to know if the whisky glass is just that it has a closed mouth rather than the open mouth conical shape of the glass tumbler.

    Honestly, that veggie sheet slicer...a very sharp knife is less dangerous.
    Also, a microwave toasty maker...that's only good for children(or any person, really) who aren't allowed to use the stove. Growing up, I was always the only child allowed to use the stove. So that's beyond useless to me. (and for 34? if you're an adult who can operate a stove, just buy a pan)

    That microwave thing would be so good for dorm room cooking, and honestly, disabled people who struggle to use the oven. I think my friend with bad allergies has one very similar that she uses to cook individual meals that the rest of her family doesn't eat.

    Issue with the microwave gadget is that microwaves cook food from the inside. So, to cook the outside of meat properly, you have to nuke the inside, overcooking it in the process. Best just to stick to sandwiches.

    It changes the taste due to the shape and insulation. Yeah, it tastes different because you're not sticking your nose in it.

    Nolan whisky glasses are also available in clear glass ones. I prefer those instead of the blind nosing one. But I'm a traditionalist git. :)

    No.3: Ham and pickles in a microwave? That'll just dry them out and make them tasteless.

    No.1: best for if you want to make veggie chips/crisps that are wider than the vegetable. Could work on potatoes and yams too.

  • Dylan Bystedt

    BTW The Norlan glass has gotten rid of that shite copy, and given something more grounded in its place. Along with, what seems to be an explanation and comparison to other whiskey glasses.

    Comparing a ice chilled and a room temperature whisky has nothing to do with the glass. The warm temperature let's the smell vaporise better, and the ice version with no smell will be diluted with water so there will be a enormous difference between the 2.

    Honestly just get a glencarin whiskey glass, instead of that other pretentious glass.

    With the exception of James.....the only real Chef in attendance........How often do you guys sit around jacking each other off? Sucking each other off? This channel used to be amazing!!!!! until you let your pride make you think you had any relevance. With the only exception being James! He is awesome and I would love to go to a restaurant he cooked for!
