We have recently bought a cast iron skillet with the griddle lines and it is fabulous for cooking steaks and lamb chops

Must be the mechanic/mechanist mentality--mine wanted to use TSP to clean the pan for which he ruined the seasoning...I used sand from Lake of the Woods to remove the old seasoning and then re-seasoned it--it now is like it was before he abused it re: how to clean it after use.

This same mechanic once used the toaster to cook an egg.













Okay, it was this kind of toaster, but still...

I know the DH has baked a potato on the engine while driving...I had a roommate who used to dry her socks in the oven...it didn't matter that each time she did, one always caught on fire...(xxxxx, tes bas brule! was often called out by either myself or our other roommate) or that on the third-floor of the apartment, there was a perfectly good clothes dryer...right beside the washer.

You should never dry socks or underwear in the oven. The microwave works much better.

We once tried to warm a towel in a microwave. It began to smoulder after only a minute and a half. I quickly took it out and placed into on our wooden porch, figuring that it would only smoke until it cooled. I glanced outside a few minutes later and saw flames right next to one of the wooden supports to the porch roof. I ran out an extinguished the burning towel before anything was damaged. I learned a valuable lesson about using the proper appliance for the proper job. I have a perfect good drier that is in the room next to my kitchen, just on the other side of the wall. Simply open the door to the laundry room, and there it is.

Why do we do such foolish things? I guess we're all young and foolish at some time in out lives, and i don't think age has much to do with it.

Hi

We have recently ditched that one as it was annoying to clean and was very heavy

Yesterday we bought a Jamie Olive Tefal grillpan...it is great, we much prefer this for cooking steak, chicken and fish

Ya gotta love a long thread you start by reading the last post and working your way forward
Drying underwear in the microwave?
This boy tosses them on the register whilst he takes his shower and hopes either the furnace or the AC kicks on a few times
