When would that have been? I remember having perfectly done steak on SAS in 1969 or '70 or '71.

Obviously a superb device. Your steak looks delicious, too.

I'm currently on another tack - going back to manual everything. Just as a discipline, I have nothing against modern convenience.

I recently bought a hand-crankable food processor from Tupperware. I now use it in preference to my electric ones for most things. It would be handy in hunting or fishing camps for guides, etc. Just another toy in this great hobby of ours, eh?
