started pouring oil into a 6qt stainless steel pot to do some deep frying. the pan was already screaming hot and the near quart of oil i had dropped into the pot instantly erupted into fire. after the initial panic set in, i grabbed the pot lid, covered it up and put some oven mitts on and carried the pot out into my back yard where i proceeded to hose down the whole mess from a safe distance. once i pried the lid off i was treated to the smell of chemical burn and the sight of 40 minutes of hard scrubbing. that's when i learned to never preheat a pan before dropping a shitton of oil into it.

It shouldn't be a problem if your pan is seasoned correctly and hot ....I Always make gravy in cast iron.

.. make Fried chicken, drain oil, reserve drippings, make homeade gravy in your cast iron....You won't have a problem.

I've cooked on cast iron most of my adult life. My skillet I use everyday is about 80 years old. My Grandmas old skillet. Excellent seasoning. It's totally nonstick

When I was first married, I Tried to make a chocolate mayonnaise sheet cake from scratch using my hubs mothers recipe. He loves that cake. It was the worst cake I have ever made. You could bend it and everything. It came out super rubbery and I still have no idea what I did wrong. The homeade frosting was even worse, I scorched the sugar...and the frosting didn't set. It was a runny rubbery mess. I just had no idea what I was doing. When the cake is made correctly it's super moist and delicious.

I'm a lot better in the kitchen now. Live and learn.

>>Stomach hurting for 2 days because didn't sear chicken before dumping it in, poisoned my idiot self
Huh?

OP, maybe you should just go to a source before you attempt stuff. Whether you google a video for visuals on a technique, or pick up L'Escoffier or Better homes and Gardens Cook Book, get a bible on bread, stocks, eggs, or whatever, and use it. No need to reinvent the wheel with experiments if you don't have natural instincts, then get the recipes down until you get some learned behaviors.
>>
>>7162006
It was made during the depression and after. A lot of old timers grew up on it. It tastes just like chocolate cake, the texture is good and the flavor is rich.... the mayonnaise is being used as a substitute for the oil. There is no mayo taste to it at all.
>>
>>7161338
>>Stomach hurting for 2 days because didn't sear chicken before dumping it in, poisoned my idiot self
It wouldn't have mattered if you seared the meat if you cooked it for 2 hours; searing is more about developing flavour than anything else. It was probably something else that made you sick.

The biggest fuck up I made in recent memory was when I dumped a bowl of wet chips into hot oil. As the water turned to steam, the oiled bubbled up and overflowed. It was the one time that I was thankful for not having a gas stove since it would have almost certainly caused a fire.
>>
>>7162006
>.... Mayonnaise... cake? Fucking americans jesus christ I'm out.
Recipe from the times of rationing. Subs for oil, eggs, butter, which were rationed. You do know mayonnaise is oil and egg, right? And that the pH of vinegar/buttermilk/baking soda/cocoa powder are all used as leaving additives, right?

Also, the recipe started in the UK, where rationing happened pretty seriously first. Stop showing people how lacking in critical thinking that you are by complaining about Americans.

You have to be a little careful about using anything acidic if you're trying to deglaze the pan and make a sauce of some sort. Wine, tomatoes, or vinegar, plus heat, can strip all your lovely seasoning off just as surely as if you soaked it in oven cleaner overnight. You can use a bit, so long as you don't have too acidic a mix and don't leave it in there too long, but what you don't want to end up with is gleaming metal staring back at you when you give the pan a rinse.

Yes, mopping before I had it all completely swept up was the mistake.

I guess I didn't get all the sugar up the first time and I also had a shitty mop. Anyway, it took about 2 days to get it all up. I kept finding small sticky areas on the floor and under the cabinets where I missed an area. Also, we have pine wood floors so that didn't help matters either. Sugar went into the tiny spaces
between the wood planks.

I was once Captaining the largest shipping spaceship to a hidden galaxy that needed egg rations for 100th lightyear solar freeze.

Hurt worse than any other pain in my life. According to the doctor I should have gone to the ER because I had exposed fat that was hanging out of the wound and it was going to heal slowly since I waited >10 hours to get it looked at.

The second worst pain in my life was him using sharp medical scissors to cut away the exposed fat hanging out of my finger wound with no anesthetic because another doctor who came in to give him advice said "I wouldn't feel anything."

My finger is pain free now and hopefully heeling (covered in gauze) but I am literally psychologically scarred from when I imagine running my finger onto the blade in my head and the memory of the pain. PTSD is fucking real friends and I barely even hurt myself.

Dude, PTSD isn't "I got an owie and I remembered how bad it was". I can appreciate fucking up and slicing your finger open, I've done it several times myself, but you're overreacting. You don't really get to say PTSD unless you were raped or forced to kill someone.

Reminds me of my days as an architecture student. One of the girls once managed to run a scalpel across the pads of all the fingertips of her left hand. In shock and pain she shook her hand, spraying blood all over a scale model of elaborate timber joinery that someone else had spent weeks constructing. One time someone sat on a scalpel. One girl managed to accidentally slit their wrist with a stanley knife. I once knocked a scalpel off a table, whereupon it embedded itself in my thigh. Tight deadlines, little sleep, sharp knives, fun times.

I was given a few kilos of Pigs liver, first night, classic Liver and Onions . . .No complaints!
Day two: Being a curry loving Bong, I thought I would make a large pot of Liver curry (to place in freezer bags) sliced up the liver, fried it off and added the usual curry spices.
half hour later - taste test; Bloody awful - add more spices, try again . .. . Bloody awful!

No matter how much I tried I could not conceal the taste of 'babies nappies'!

Ended up throwing the lot away.

Conclusion: Stick to Liver and onions!

http://cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/3747/how-do-you-put-out-a-grease-fire

>I'm an arson investigator and I give classes to businesses with our fire extinguisher demo. The participants must supply their own fire extinguishers but they get to practice using them in a controlled environment. Here's the rules for kitchen/grease fires that I teach. When you have a grease fire the first step is to cover the pan. If the controls are on the front of the stove you should turn off the burner, but if the controls are on the back of the stove you don't want to risk a burn reaching for it until you've covered it. Next step...nothing. Leave it alone and let it cool up for quite a while. NEVER EVER EVER move the pan. Even after you've covered it. I can't tell you how many structure fires I've investigated because someone tried to move a burning pan of grease off of the burner. It's almost impossible to move a pan full of any liquid without sloshing or spilling it, then add the excitement of the fire and you're almost guaranteed to end up spreading grease everywhere. Grease and oil heat up to over 300 degrees F. so it will take quite some time to cool off but don't risk moving it. Keep it covered and it will cool off on it's own.

Of course, instead she comes in giggling about the pan being on fire. Guess whose neighbors got to see a guy carry a 6' foot flame column out of his house naked.

Maybe if I hadn't been so exhausted I would have done something rational, but fire is scary.

Only burned one arm and spilled a little grease on my foot.

I was sawtayin sum shyit in cooking school once and started a big as fuck fire.

I had beenworking for 3 years at that point and was totally un daunted by it knowing the flames would die down in a few moments and that they weren't large enough to ever come close to setting off the extinguisher system in the hud.

nevertheless all the auismo 18yearold retards in my class freaked out and the teacher came over and took my pan off the heat. he was like " you used too much hoil mon amie don't do it again" I was like yes chef but was really in my head goin. what a bunch of fucking dumb pussy cunts.

Nothing too bad. First time i cooked a pizza myself i set the temp on the oven to the highest setting and the part of the pizza facing the back of the oven got burned black.

Put some chicken breasts in the oven and forgot about them. They were in well over an hour, and when i took them out they were as dry as an 80 year olds vagina. Not one to waste food i still ate them though, just had to lather them in sauce.

peanut butter can be easily microwaved, you just have to be super careful. put it in for 30 seconds and literally remove it every 5 to 10 seconds and stir to make sure it isn't starting to burn.
