We previously examined bacon shrinkage caused by different stove-top techniques. However, it was uncertain how much of that length loss was simply due to differential doneness. Here, we wanted to try again with more control for “doneness”, as well as examine the impacts on different bacon thicknesses.
Here at the primary testing facility, we recently acquired our first sous vide immersion circulator. Since this is a novel cooking technique for us we have many questions. In this post we seek to find out how important searing really is when cooking steaks?

Having contributed the a successful Kickstarter campaign that claimed to “harness the power of phase change to keep your beverages cold” last year, we were excited to put the product to the test. In this post we compare both versions of this new product to two other cooling mechanisms we have on hand.
