    Default Kitchen Questions

    I wanted to start a thread for general questions related to the kitchen. ASK AWAY!

    It can be anything related to food, cooking, how to choose an appliance, which fork to use, etc. Anything that happens in the kitchen applies.

    I'll get things started. This is a question/observation.

    If your kitchen sink has a built in soap dispenser, which type of soap do you put in it? Dish soap (like Dawn or Ajax) or liquid hand soap?

    This came up because me and a friend have different opinions on the matter.

    Thanks for starting this thread Chacha! To answer your question I'd more than likely add dish detergent and have a dispenser to the side for hand soap. I do have a question though:


    I have a dishwasher in my home but rarely use it. Old habits are hard to break and I grew up washing dishes by hand and still prefer that manner. My son told me I should use it atleast once a week or something will get backed up in the pipes. Is that true? Anyone else not use their dishwasher?

    To answer Chacha's question, I say dishsoap. They are gentle enough nowadays that I use it to wash my hands when I need to do so.

    I don't have a dispenser on my kitchen sink, and it makes sense to think dish washing liquid. However it's for your hands like any other sink dispenser.... therefore it's hand soap. Frankly, if I had a kitchen dispenser, I'd fill it with lotion.

    Interesting responses. This came up because I was washing dishes at my friend's house and I naturally pumped the soap dispenser onto the dishes to wash them. Turns out she doesn't put dish soap in her sink dispenser. She puts hand soap in there.

    I just moved and I will be putting dish soap on my dispenser.

    But Fuzzi, lotion??? Near your dishes?

    For chapped hands. Lotion won't touch the dishes if it's in the dispenser. I cook/bake often and wash dishes in between... so it will come in handy. I rather keep dual purpose dish liquid in it's own container to monitor when to replenish. Don't want to be caught with greasy pans and I'm low on liquid in a dispenser. It's like going to the ladies room reaching for the soap to wash hands and you're out .... irritating.

    Is there any fool proof way to keep pots and pans from boiling over?

    Living abroad? Thinking of moving, or just moved back? Check out the Expat Nappies group!

    Reduce flame/heat, fluid and use lids with openings that allow steam to escape. Meats that take longer I use a deeper pot and add water up to the rim of the meat (rise allowance). Sometimes my lids won't have an opening. So I tilt the lid off the pot to allow the steam to escape and avoid boiling spillage. Option #2: Get a Lid Sid.

    To chacha's post:

    If I had a soap dispenser, I'd put hand soap in it.
    I'd keep the dish soap seperate.

    My questions:
    Who else washes their metal dishrack in the dishwasher?
    How often?

    I wanna know what your special trick is for loading more things in the dishwasher at washtime, and know that everything will be clean? I really wanna know.

    Who else has tried that trick to removing burnt on food in pots and pans by soaking w/white vinegar and a fabric softener sheet? What are your results?

    Folks wash their dish racks??

    I have a dishwasher but never use it.

    I've always just soaked pots in water. If there is anything still stuck, I use a little baking soda.
