    From a chefs point, concerning the Roast Potato Oil, any oil that is heated to high heat loses its intensity of flavour. That's why you wouldn't use an infused or flavoured oil in roasting.

    I've never heard anyone refer to a peanut as a "groundnut" before now. Yes...peanut oil is a really good oil for cooking things nice and crispy (also because it has a really good flavor as an oil).

    You should do a midnight-snack cooking battle/recipe-relay where if the cooking gets too loud you take a 60sec hands-off. Imagine this: your SO is sleeping but youre getting really hungry and cant really sleep without a snack so you start to think of all the wonderful items you could cook if you could just do it quietly... and if you need ti make a loud sound just make sure theres only one of them before your SO falls back to sleep, in 60 seconds.

    the licking essence is a hit cause it lies in between Culinary plus cocktail science to the arena of fifty shades of grey, if you know what I mean. this product depicts utter stupidity, yet I definitely would have bought one if I saw it in the shelf cause it brings out one's curiosity and that's the brilliant part of playing with the product, what's not to like!-- the way it is designed and intended to be caught by the primitivism of hunger,thirst and sex of human being or say, the customer of the product.
