    I was cooking from the Packs App for the first time a couple days ago. As the curry simmered I calmly began cleaning the kitchen. I have NEVER calmly done anything while cooking, certainly not clean! I typically just stare at pots in panic waiting to see what I screw up, how did you fix me? My lovely Sorted Chefs are MAGIC! And it was delicious. Thank you for the amazing cooking help, can’t wait to make another recipe!

    Here's a free tip: Read a recipe first, start the brain and then start cooking. If you think before cooking it's not as hard. And, it did not require a subscription to someone holding your hand.

    @Anna Watts - have you looked at the digital subscription? It is less than $7 a month and you have access to all the apps, packs, books etc. You can access 1 pack a week which is 3 meals so it literally pays for itself week one!! That being said, I have the book subscription and I love getting that beautiful gold-embossed box every 3 months but you cannot beat the value of the base subscription!

    ......Why is #3 even a new kickstarter or whatever... it already exists.... It is called a Spoon-machine over here, and consists of a spoon, fork, and knife slid into a housing that serves as a can opener... The military has been using it since the middle of the cold war and is about as compact as it gets while still being fully functional....

  • Dominic Crimmings
    Dominic Crimmings7 天 前

    I do love the idea of the Outlery cutlery to save on plastic etc - but there are a few problems. For example, if on a plane, unless you tell them in advance you have your own, they will still provide you with plastic stuff etc and if you don't use it, it will just go in the bin, so you've not actually made any difference to the consumption of plastics. Also, you wouldn't be allowed through customs with it as the knife and probably fork would be classed as dangerous. I can see how it would be great for camping or picnics though, especially camping - compact, easily washable etc.

    I can totally see this working if you're teaching a kid to cook. You can prepare everything for them in the beginning so big meals don't look so overwhelming. Also for myself - I don't always have the energy to make a whole meal and cook. So I can prepare when I have the energy, and then cook at a later time when I have more energy ☺️

    That's a good point but you could get a set of Weck jars or something comparable instead. They can go in the dishwasher, take up much less space in the cupboard as you can stack them, spare parts can be bought separately and will likely be available for the next decades, the lid seals tightly, you can put them in the freezer if you change your plans or lose motivation, they store leftovers and the best thing - they're about 3€ including the lid.

    You guys missed the whole point of this product. You're supposed to use it for food prep for the week. So each container has several days worth of each item. So on Saturday, you fill up the bins and on Monday you dish out each ingredient as you need it. Monday's dinner is now tossing a few things together and cooking them right away.

    Late to the party but confirmed Scottish heretic. Tea is only ever made with boiling water, for coffee the water needs to be off the boil for a minute or so. Don't need a gadget for that, it's easier to just do it right. Definitely no need for a gadget. Prepdeck? Feck off. I'm a reasonable cook, not a chef, but even I chop things in the order they're going in to the pan. Occasionally slightly hurried when I realise I've left something a smidge late but less mise en place than seat of the pants.

    Hard pass on the Qi and the prep deck. Tea isn’t hard to make and I’m with James on the deck thing, more mess more dishes. The cutlery is a pass too. The only place I’d need my own cutlery is camping and I have a set of regular ol stuff that goes with us every time.

    Blimey! How hard is it to make a cup of tea to suit you? It's not rocket science. The best cup will always be in a teapot and using tea leaves not tea bags. Don't try to reinvent the wheel. You don't need technology to help you make a cup of tea.

    I think PREPDECK: MEAL PREP SYSTEM helps people who cook or prepare the meal ingredients, for the whole week. It's popular these days if you watch Korean cooking videos you'll find they have garlic cubes stored in the fridge with chopped vegetables. It's cheap, efficient, and healthy, if you do it this way.

    There is a great Mexican food place around the corner from me. I love the food, but they must pay like $4 per thousand for the plastic eating utensils. They are total crap. I use a camping utensil set that has a large spoon with two rivets in the handle. The fork snaps onto the rivets via a "keyhole" shaped hole, and the knife snaps on last. They stay together pretty well. As an added bonus the knife has a built-in bottle opener notched into the handle. They cost $3 per set and include a vinyl pouch. When finished, I wrap a paper napkin around the set and put it in the pouch to be washed later. No assembly required, very sturdy. As good as most cheaper restaurant flatware. I could easily fit four sets in the space of two of those tins. Just sayin'.

    1st: We used a normal cheap coffee machine for making tea. Today I use an eletric kettle and boil the water. Depending on the tea I let it cool down and than I brew the tea. I see no point in such a device. Maybe it would be even esier to use an espresso cooker or a french press. 2nd: Lots of money for so little plastic. You can get Tupper boxes for the price that will do the same and we all know that Tupper is not pricy. 3rd: Nice outdoor cutlery. Some people wil like it buit there are already different types of outdoor and camping cutlery for mich ess money, that do the same work. It is like an Enterprise pizza cutter. Nobody needs it but some peoole will want it.
