Cooking Rules You Can Ignore

Whatever they say, cooking is a science with its very own know-hows, rules and postulates, theories to prove or refute, fallacies many believe to be true for years. New times bring along new scientists and pioneers, who thoroughly disprove all theories, causing us to rethink everything we thought we knew.

cooking rules

When someone debunks yet another culinary myth, we involuntarily ask ourselves: What if in a decade someone else finds new evidence refuting long-standing theories? Well, we can’t pick and choose. What remains is to welcome discoveries. We have selected for you the five most deep-rooted myths. It seems that some could not possibly be another sham, but who knows?

You Can Put a Hot Pan in the Fridge

hot pan

More times than not, you cook a dish, wait until it has cooled to room temperature, and then put it into the refrigerator. Everybody knows to follow one of the most basic cooking rules. But experts unanimously insist that it’s better to do the opposite. Remember how in Disney cartoons the heroes often had a thought-cloud above their heads? If it appeared above us right now, it would probably say: “What?”

Ideally, cooked food should be refrigerated as soon as possible because it inhibits the development of bacteria. However, most ordinary refrigerators are not designed for cooling pans and can fail. In that case, better consider the temperature of the room. If it is 85 °F and above, let the hot pot cool on the stove, because the refrigerator already works to the limit. If the room is cold, the equipment’s resources can cope with the heat, if the volume is small.

You Can Reboil Water

cooking rules

We were always told the opposite, and the majority of us still adhere to this unspoken rule. Let’s start with the facts: water becomes heavy when boiling, meaning that the number of heavy hydrogen isotopes increases several times. When talking about ordinary freshwater, their content is quite low.

Suppose you break one of the most fundamental cooking rules and boil water twice, thrice. The increase in the concentration of isotopes is insignificant. You need to boil the same water — in the same kettle — for 20–30 years to produce the outcome you have always feared.

Teflon Pans Are Safe

cooking on Teflon

When polytetrafluoroethylene or Teflon pans first appeared on the market, they caused a boom! Every homemaker got several pans of different sizes, and all other types of cookware became slightly less popular. Then it turned out that when heated, polytetrafluoroethylene emits toxins, and everyone had to fetch their old pans from the pantry. Is polytetrafluoroethylene dangerous?

Ludwig Fischer — Doctor of Science who has debunked more than one culinary myth, claims the opposite. When heated, Teflon does not enter into chemical reactions with food. Even if a particle enters the stomach, it is naturally cleansed from the body with no harm to health.

You Can Skip Washing the Office Mug

dirty mug

There are two types of employees: the ones who wash their mug and the ones who do not bother. Which group do you belong to? It turns out that it is more hygienic to not wash your mug, provided that you are the only one using it and you prefer natural coffee without sugar or cream. Scientists explain it this way: if there are microbes in the mug, they are likely to have come from you, so you are not at risk of picking up anything new. One more thing: it is far more dangerous to wash your mug with a common sponge than to not wash it at all. What do you say to that?

Microwaved Food Is Safe

microwaved food

All products lose part of their nutrients when heated — on the stove, in the oven, or the microwave. That’s the reality. But the loss after cooking or reheating in the microwave is minimal: the temperatures are lower, and the time taken is shorter than during cooking on the stove. Moreover, foods like cabbage, carrots, and tomatoes become enriched with antioxidants!

We do not urge you to rid your mind of doubt and firmly believe. Just be aware of the existence of sound refutations. Send the link to your friends. Who knows, maybe they also believe in these old myths you can safely leave in the past?

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now
broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
But think about if you added some great visuals or videos
to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent
but with images and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
Very good blog!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking
about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have
to manually code with HTML. I’m starting
a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling
issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the reality nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Cooking Rules You Can Ignore –
Cook It is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
create post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add
a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to
say. In my opinion, it would make your posts a little bit more interesting.

It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and
it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I
want to suggest you some interesting things or tips.

popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any solutions
to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d certainly appreciate
it.

start my own blog soon. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or tips
for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject nevertheless I just needed to ask.

Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a
daily basis. It will always be exciting to read through content from other authors and use something
from other web sites.

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Cheers!

I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles
or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I eventually stumbled
upon this website. Studying this information So i am glad to
exhibit that I have a very good uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed.

out of your mind this web site and give it a look regularly.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard
to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.

I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog
loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.

that’s equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.

The problem is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently
about. Now i’m very happy I came across this in my search for something concerning
this.

Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

Would you advise starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely
confused .. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Great post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I am inspired!
Extremely helpful information specifically the final section 🙂 I maintain such information much.
I was seeking this particular info for a long time.

in finding it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will definitely

however other than that, this is magnificent blog.
A great read. I will certainly be back.
