Well the Green New Deal FAQ document lays out there on the ground like a fresh, steaming moose turd. And Senator Markey has discovered the age old truth that there is no way to pick up a turd by the clean end. And McConnell is asking him to pick it up. And Markey says, "No way Jose, it's not my job." Well Senator Markey you introduced the legislation described by the FAQ. You dealt it--it's all yours (with a little help from AOC).

I've had a hard time keeping up lately due to work.

Since I rarely can opine on a subject I know of, I've been itching to get caught up and opine on the topic of induction cooktops which was brought up a thread or two ago.

Got one during a kitchen update about 5 years ago.

The new has not worn off.

It's amazing.

You can be boiling 8 qts of water, remove the pot, put your hand on the burner and the only thing you'll feel is residual heat from the boiling water. Move the pot back over the burner and it instantly starts boiling again.

My wife generally will place a paper towel between a cast iron skillet/griddle and the burner so she doesn't scratch the glass top. The paper towel remains unfazed by the encounter and is perfectly usable afterwards.

If you want to boil water it takes about 90 seconds. 2 quart saucepan? 8 quart stockpot? It doesn't matter. Mass seems irrelevant. It will literally put the 'minute' in you MinuteRice.

My burners have a hold, 1-10 and a powerboost setting. The heat control is the exact same everytime you use it regardless of the size of the pan. Heat control is precise. It works the same way each time. There is a learning curve but once you've cooked a few times it's way easier to control than a traditional electric or gas.

All I know is that it uses magnetism. We bought a couple of stockpots last month and as we shopped my wife applied a magnet to the bottom of each pot and if it stuck, it was a candidate for purchase.

matt - deplore me if you must

Has anyone ever seen Paul Manafort and James Spader in the same room together? Seems like the Feds love to revoke them some plea and immunity deals.


Bub, expertise or experience not required around here to opine. Thnx.

bubarooni, thanks for your induction cooktop report. I'm exploring induction with a single burner counter top hot plate. I bought a new gas range 3 years ago when I remodeled the kitchen. The all grate cooktop is a PITA to clean. I wouldn't buy that style again.


You're under arrest. You are accused of MANIPULATING WYMYN and causing EMOTIONAL DISTRESS.

I just talked to the President, and he was in good spirits. I told him that I just signed the homeland security conference report and that it’s a down payment on his border wall. This is only the beginning of a multi-year effort.


Miss M, I read somewhere Newsone is starting out with a $2 billion budget deficit... add a quick $3.5 billion to that and he might have to apply Walker level Act 10 stuff. OPM famine is not the time to play open borders come for free shit games.


Hey Shelby, don’t expect any cash for the Republican Senate Campaign Committee until the Wall is complete. If I have to wait multiple years, so do you. Asshole.




Excerpt from the article I posted at 8:56:

One person familiar with the interaction told Politico that Trump "was in his face about it" and described the president as "worked up."

“He saw a Democrat in the room, a Democrat who’s known to be a person of faith, and he was like, ‘Why aren't you speaking out about this?’” the person added.

I've been thinking the all grate design would be handy in moving pans around on a hot stove.
What makes that design a PITA to clean vs a regular cooktop?

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

A man in a MAGA hat sits down at the bar and figures he'll break the ice the bartender by asking her, "Wanna hear an AOC joke?"

In a hushed voice, a man beside him quickly says "Before you tell that joke, you should know the bartender is a liberal, our bouncer is socialist, I'm a 6'4" black belt who voted for AOC, the man sitting on the other side of me is 6'2, 250 lbs, and he voted for Bernie. The guy sitting over there is pushing 300, 6'6, and he wrote-in Al Gore. We're ALL lefties. So you think about it mister, do you really wanna tell that joke?"

The MAGA hat man sat for a second, thinking over the odds and then replied "Nah, not if I have to explain it 5 times."



induction cooking.

You can buy one to operate on your countertop or an entire rangetop.

Regardless of what you get, it'll make moot the recent discussion here on making hard boiled eggs.

Unless, of course, OL markets that amazing bowl in his fridge that magically regenerates hard boiled eggs when removed from the fridge and placed empty on the kitchen counter.

I told my wife about that Modern Marvel but she called bullsh*t on me.




Remember how al Jazeera and the times made a big deal about her:

I think the bigun' on my range top pushes double that.

My only input was signing the check though.

Ah, whole range top. Missed that part. Probably triple.

You can buy a 1800-watt portable for $60.


I agree with Hoyden that my gas cooktop is harder to clean than my previous glass surfaced cooktop.

However, one dropped pan on the glass cooktop set me back $400 and about 3 hours to swap the glass.

I am going to have to go to Best Buy to get an antenna for our television. I will look to see if they have those induction ranges there.

I honestly had never heard of them until the discusion today. Sounds really neat!


The range tops require special wiring. I don't know about the ranges.

The old school/conventional ranges or cooktops, with the regular, exposed spiral shaped resistance heating elements are still available, but clearly not very popular.

Glass top units with induction heating or conventional resistance type elements (mounted under the glass) are mostly what you will see for electric.

The resistance style look sleek, but since the glass gets hot, spills are sometimes challenging to clean up.

Induction best of both worlds, but pot and pan choices are more limited.


You missed it by 700 meters,



Thanks for the info. I probably won't be able to get one this year, but I am pretty sick of my gas cook top because I have the grate thing which someone complained about earlier.

To clean those grates I have to soak them in household ammonia and then use ammonia and steel wool on the underlying enamel surface. Big pain in the neck.

The Denver City Council has voted unanimously to decriminalize a number of offenses, including defecating in public. Also, urinating in public. Camping on public or private land without permission. Panhandling. And lying across public rights-of-way, such as sidewalks.

How are they going to build a 6th generation fighter ahead of anyone else when everything they use is stolen technology?

When their current 5th generation fighter runs on a 4th generation engine. And their 5th generation engines explode after a few hours of use.

Foreign analysts expect that a US F-15 or F-18 latest models, 4th generation fighters, can take out a Chinese J-20. Never mind an F-22 "Raptor."


They think they can win through Brute force, but how much of their military has seen combat since at least that brief skirmish with Vietnam, i guess that's why they've used North Korea as their proxy.

Fishing using cormorants is an ancient Chinese tradition that is still practiced today. A string is tied around the bird's neck and they are sent out into the water to catch fish. They cannot swallow the fish and they return with it to the fisherman.

I remember the Sino-Vietnamese War. It was a short affair, less than a month, with heavy casualties on both sides if I remember correctly.

The cause of the war was even weirder. North Vietnam, more or less, installed Pol Pot as the leader of Cambodia. Pol Pot then hooked up with China as a client-state.

After the US left the Vietnam war, Pol Pot sent raiding parties into Vietnam.

Vietnam invaded Cambodia to stop it and I remember the US was confused about the whole thing. Like who to root for.

That's when China attacked Vietnam to get them out of their Cambodian client-state. China didn't achieve that goal.

Both China and Vietnam declared victory, but both dis-engaged.

I presume Vietnam sent its' best troops to Cambodia and fought China with less capable troops and irregulars. A guerilla war as soon as the the Chicoms came across the border.

The Chinese also battled India in 1962 and 1867, but I can't think of any land battle after the one with Vietnam. Large deployments to the Russia border after that.
No sea battles before the age of steam. No air battles.

I'm sure they study past battles, but that doesn't mean they no how to fight a new battle.

During the American Civil War we had observers from many European countries present and, yet, WWI was a repeat of Civil War tactics with trench warfare.

What makes that design a PITA to clean vs a regular cooktop?

Posted by: Les Nessman

Stove top grates are cast iron, so much easier to clean than enamel. I mostly just knock the chunks off with a sponge. Stove has 3 large grates and 5 burners that end up needing cleaning. It would be so much simpler to wipe down the stove top.

sbwaters, yeah, keeping food in the pot and off the stove top is the ultimate goal. Let's just say I have room for improvement. Pots that simmer and spit bits of juice are another source of schmutz. Don't even mention frying anything up top. I cook bacon in the oven so that I don't have to clean up grease splatters.

My counter top induction hot plate is 1800 W, which is probably as big you can get and still plug into an ordinary 115 V outlet. Next time I'm in the thrift store I will pick up some steel and cast iron pots. All of mine are SS and don't pass the magnet test, except for my double boiler.
