  • Hi! I have a question for the SORTEDfood foodies! has anyone from Latin America signed up for the app? I'd like to know if the majority of ingredients they use are available in my region. I'm from Peru and I'm an avid fan, but sometimes the ingredients they use are not available or too expensive here. (I'm from Lima, Peru). :)

  • I went through chemo a couple of years back that greatly affected my hand strength and co-ordination. That can opener would have been so helpful. Thank you so much for showing why these types of products are so important. Now that I am cancer free and regaining my strength, I want that tortilla press. I think it is useful and beautiful. The whisk wipe can kick rocks.

  • The can opener seems maybe a little much for the average person but it's a great mobility tool and I'm glad that got mentioned. Too many things like this are dismissed as totally silly simply because they are designed for people with disabilities in mind. Y'all at least acknowledged that there are people who would really see the value in it.

  • here in the states cast iron is the cheapest quality pans that you can find, we also have allot more tortilla presses floating around second hand. if the skillet you buy costs less than a new cast iron skillet of the same size, you shouldn't have bought it. and finding cast iron second hand is really common.

  • Love the look of the packs app, was wondering if you'd considered making a student edition? With easy 1 person meals, no fancy equipment/ingredients that students aren't likely to have, meals that can be kept in the fridge and reheated easily the next couple of days, meals that don't need you to take over the entire shared kitchen to prepare, etc.?

  • Wisk Wiper - Useless. If you're careful with a wisk, you don't need it. Multifunctional Can Opener - Useful. This thing does far more than it needs. Churros Maker - Useless. If you have what you need to make churros, this is just going to make inferior churros. Tortilla Press - Useful. Pressing tortillas won't be something you do often, but when you want to, this is great.

  • Loving the tortilla press presentation! Over here in California, it one of the most popular Mexican kitchen tools to have, both in restaurants and home kitchens. They will last you forever and are absolutely worth the effort and memories of making your own tortillas. Edit: Even though the churro gadget seems a bit on the weaker side, I’m still biased towards it and I love the idea haha.

  • Just have to comment and THANK YOU, for mentioning that things could be useful for various disabilities. It means SO MUCH to hear disabilities referenced in such a normal way. So often, disabilities are talked about or mentioned--if at all--in such weird and painfully ableist ways. You've always managed to avoid the offensive tropes. Not sure if you have any friends/loved ones with disabilities, but your genuine kindness and that you think of these things and have awareness, does NOT go unnoticed or unappreciated! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I use a jar opener I got from Pamered Chef years ago. Best thing I ever bought. Only thing it can't open is pickle jars, hubby has to open them. As for the plastic package opener, we tried that several times and finally gave up using it. Scissors work better. It's a great can opener though. Have had it for over 12 years. Dont buy it for the gadgets.

    CamurgladiusCamurgladius8 päivää sitten
  • that opener was totally lame. Though some of the additions were neat, the basic can opener function (which is clearly the majority of it's function) was lame. My mom had a can opener that did the same thing 50 years ago...except I didn't have to put the can back for the magnet to grab the declining function over time? Lame. Lame...Lame...Lame. I currently have a hands free can opener that I set it on top of the can (without 5 minutes of nonsense) and push the button. No fuss...and not giant like that...and I'm sure I could get all the extra gadgett bits separately and also taking up vastly less space.

  • Question for anyone who’s got the midweek meals app. I live in Japan and the ingredients available here are often quite different or non existent compared to when I was in the US. For example, if I want cheese, I have to drive an hour as it’s not really sold in the town I live in. Does the app use a lot of non-basic ingredients?

It's cast iron, so season it well and leave the grease proof paper behind! Great video. Also, you should not be paying more than $15 at best. You can find them at Mexican and Asian markets for a song.

  • Spaniard here! Fun-fact: the big round "churro" is called "porra". They are thicker and fluffier than churros which are shorter, thinner and crispier. The churros are cut as the dough falls into the oil. The porras are cut after they are cooked (The two of them are always fried. Never baked). Also, we don't dip them in chocolate sauce. It actually is the normal drinking hot chocolate in Spain. We just dip the churros and porras in it. Our hot choc is just so thick and rich that you can actually just eat it with a spoon :P
