Why does Ben & Jerry's become frozen as ice?

What would turning the freezer up accomplish? Wouldn't it just freeze anyway?

Why does Ben & Jerry's become frozen as ice?

Hi,

I was wondering, why is B&J as hard as ice whenever I take it out of the freezer? It's frustrating because I end up having to wait a while before I could scoop any ice cream because it feels like a lump of ice.

Some of the cheaper ice creams I used to buy tend to usually stay soft (not too soft though).

Is this because the B&J ice creams have less air content? And is there a way to store it so that it doesn't freeze up like this?

Fried eggs (not scrambled) in a Stainless Steel or a Cast Iron pan

Hi,

It seems that both of these pans require preheating before frying something in them, I'm a beginner in the kitchen and I have both a stainless steel and a Cast Iron pan in the kitchen and I'd like to know how to properly fry eggs in them so that they won't stick or burn.

1) Stainless steel:
It requires preheating on a medium flame, and then you add the oil, wait for it to shimmer and then go the eggs.

I've tried this but it did stick a little (not too much) and the eggs got a little golden on the bottom VERY QUICKLY.

I assume that this is because I preheated the pan on medium. Is this how it's supposed to come out?

2) Cast Iron
I haven't tried on this one yet because I'm not sure how to start.

How long do I preheat it for? When do I add the oil?

Thanks!

Staub HoneyComb vs Staub Grill Pan

Hi,

I'd like to know the answer to this as well!

Plus, what kind of things can you fry on the HoneyComb one? The same meats you'd do on the grill?
