    IME you wana be careful putting a wet skillet on a very hot glass top, the water could sputter/ steam and chip the glass top

    I got a small divot about the size of a dime in my glass top, I still use that burner every night but its something to be careful of

    I am laughing too hard at the thought of someone actually throwing a steak directly on a glass cooktopy. That would be a mess for the ages. And a guaranteed grease fire. Probably a fully involved structure fire.

    I have my smoke detector not mounted and sitting on top of the fridge which is right next to the stove

    if it goes off I can just move it away from the stove which is the #1 place to have a kitchen fire

    Yes, but do you fry steaks directly on your cooktop?

    Jacques Pepin probably has a big ass burner that heats all the way to the edge of the pan so it heats evenly.
    One thing I learned about frying in a cold dry cast iron pan is to not touch the meat until it's time to turn it. Once the meat gets a crust it separates easily. Presalting the meat to dry out the surface helps to. (How do you know it's time to turn it without lifting it up to look at it? You have to pay me for that tip.)

    Just like at the urinal. Shake it once or twice. Not three though then youíre playing with your meat.

    Jacque is just using a gasburning range at home for his recipes on youtube his cooking is very simple he doesnt have ingrediant lists he just tells you to do this and that

    Hot or cold pan for that recipes it does not matter, the chicken skin provides the fat, the skin gets a brown crust, you leave it skin down for 20 with the lid on and the steam cooks the chicken

    Speaking of which--duck breasts. ATK says score the skin and saute very slowly to render the fat and crisp the skin, then finish on the other side. When I do this the fat isn't completely rendered and the skin isn't crisp by the time the meat is up to 125F. Guy on Julia Child's show--she's the best--uses medium high heat. Guess I'll try that next. thoughts? The breasts I can get tend to be on the small side. Story of my life.

    Past medium rare and you just fucked sum duck up. This implies duck needs to be cooked fast. You'll be happier cooking it with medium high heat like the guy on Julia Child's show, or over a fire like a steak that will dry out instantly and turn to liver the moment it gets over 125 inside. Restaurants use MAPP gas to burnish duck breasts and baked Alaska because it cooks so fast the inside never gets a chance to warm before the outside burns.


    Fun Fact: Paper heiress and Smithy Julia Child met her husband and learned to cook in the OSS, the forerunner to the CIA.

    If I don't want to hear the wife bitch about the smell of what's cooking, I'll use the cast iron on the back deck with one of these. It's a pretty cheap solution if you're renting.

    Start cold and let chicken heat up in the pan is a great way to render more fat

    I don't fucking care. I shake it as many times as I need to. 20, 37, whatever. Of course it doesn't do any good. No matter how long the song and dance, the last drop always lands in your pants.
