Mandoline Versus Food Processor [moved from Home Cooking]

I bought myself a Benriner a couple of years ago and I can't figure out how to use it. very frustrating. can't get the top slidy thing to work.. I've had people at my house who say just don't use it but I really would like to learn to use it the right way and then take it from there. The levers are confusing to me and I can't seem to get the right pressure down. If someone could direct me to a youtube video that would show me how to use a Benriner that would be cool.

What cookbooks have you bought recently, or are you lusting after? January 2014 edition! [Through January 31, 2014]

Do you have a LeCreuset dutch oven? It would cook the same way.. which is fabulous and hot and even..

Any decent food off the pike between Boston and upstate New York?

oh darn, i was just going to recommend Lenny and Joe's Fish Tales in Connecticut but realized it was n't where you were going... but if you're in the area ( I think Madison, Ct) it's worth a stop...best lobster roll, fish sandwich, combos, clam chowder ever!

Electric Pressure Cooker with Stainless Insert?

I love my Hawkins Futura pressure cooker I've had it for at least 15 years - it is awesome, was an expensive purchase - about $120 back then but the finish is perfect , it's very safe, and I've never had to replace the gasket..

The Tastiest Canned Tomatoes

The Jersey Fresh canned tomatoes are the best- I buy them by the case down here in Cape May County- at shoprite in the winter and at Marlboro Market and Legates Farm market during the season. You hardly need anything to add anything to make a wonderful spaghetti sauce.. Love them..
