Re: Pimp That Product

Rib steak thread mentioned bacon. And I recently found and fell in love with bacon from Benton’s Smoky Mountain Country Hams. A buddy of mine introduced me to this awesome bacon, and when my family and I went down to see my Wife's Dad in Tennessee, we stopped by to get some. Then when he came up for Christmas, my present was 20 lbs of this swine-tacular delicacy. It puts any other bacon I've ever had to shame.

Here's a short (9 minute documentary) on Allan Benton and his products: CURED on Vimeo

It's a 4 lb minimum on mail order, and they are at 4-6 week turnaround right now, but it's well worth it.

In reality, it's a very high-quality, well made, heavy little frying pan. You season it with vegetable oil once before the first use like you would a cast iron skillet.

NOTHING sticks. If you would burn something, just run some water on it and give it a flick with the spatula and it's clean. The coating is amazing for cooking. I use it all of the time now and cleanup takes seconds...I run some water into it, add a squirt of dish soap and wipe it out with sponge or sometimes all it needs is a rinse and it's clean. I've used it about 20 times now and it looks brand new, not a scratch or stain.

It really is the perfect pan...for just $20.

Get one. Seriously.

Orgreenic™ 10' Fry Pan - Bed Bath & Beyond

The people complaining about sticking must not have prepped it right. Nothing sticks.

There's one review saying it scratched with the use of a fork. Well, yeah. You don't use metal in ANY nonstick pan... Wooden or plastic spatulas only.

I hope they make a bigger one or better yet, a square skillet.



Got a 10-piece set for Christmas, all different sizes. It's amazing. Seriously...get these pans.

Still missing a square skillet though.




edit: They make one! I must buy.

Re: Pimp That Product

saw these on shark tank, it's a cool idea but they're getting shit reviews. if they can fully deliver on this concept, i would definitely be in the market. i drink hot tea on the way to work and can't really take large sips/gulps until about 30-40 minutes into my commute.

Re: Pimp That Product

So what, they're like those re-usable ice cubes?

Usually in the morning I'll shower and then go fill my coffee cup. By the time I shave and get dressed, it's the perfect temp. If I'm in a rush and need to chug a cup, I'll just drop an ice cube in.

How big are those bean things? They look like they could easily slide down your throat.

Re: Pimp That Product

Ice cubes work fine for me too. One or two usually does the trick without watering down my coffee too bad.

Re: Pimp That Product

the cool part, for me, was that they can keep it at 140° for 4/5 hours.
again, the reviews do not reflect their claims, but they say it:

cools your drink down to 140° in minutes - won't be too hot
and
keeps your drink at 140° for hours - won't be too cool

Re: Pimp That Product

Sounds like a bunch of fantasy claims you'd hear on an infomercial.

You drop these in your coffee and it doesn't cool off?

Heck, lets dump a bunch of these in the ocean. Global warming is solved.

Volcano about to erupt? Throw a bunch of these fancy coffee beans into it. Crisis averted.

I bet these things could stop Iran's nukes when they finally get here too.

Amazing.

Saw that Shark Tank as well. Seemed cool I think Cuban gave them a deal.

Re: Pimp That Product

Bought a new house; like brand new.

And all it took was an infomercial.
