Heh, my mom made awesome poached salmon with the dishwasher so I'm really getting a kick...
 
2013-11-19 01:15:43 AM
Overall, we thought the salmon poached in the coffee maker was slightly better than the one we cooked up in the dishwasher.

Never before, in the history of journalism...

If you messed up the coffeemaker, it's not even a $30 investment, so I would seriously hope it does not cause domestic friction.

I'm cooking salmon in my refrigerator. It should be just about done now (72 hrs).

If a coffee maker is reason for separation then you're probably looking for an excuse for divorce in the first place.

I remember when I was a kid my dad used to cook steaks and brats on the manifold of his old Chevy on the way to brewer games at the old Milwaukee county stadium... I suppose it was only a matter of time before someone took that idea to a Mr. Coffee...

I have an officemate that likes to bring in leftover fish and shrimp to reheat in our microwave. It's made me think thoughts of revenge. If he tried to cook fish in our goddamn coffee maker, he'd come in to work the next day with his desk set up in the elevator lobby.

That's great if you never want to actually make coffee in it again.


"I tell you this: I will never be hungry in a hotel room again."

I have a feeling most hotels would not be happy with this idea.

What's wrong with using things as they were designed? Is this some kind of hipster micro-apartment, using-the-oven-as-closet life hacks? Or are these people just showing random pieces of raw meat into various appliances to see what happens?

Trying too hard folks.  If you want to be silly, make a benny and june.  everything else is trying too hard to be clever.

6. Let the salmon sit in the hot water until it's opaque and flaky (for us it took only 7 minutes). Remove salmon and vegetables. Plate.

Plate. That's the stupidest step in a recipe. How about...  Round file.

I'm sure the hotel would be fine: it's the next guy in the room who's going to get farked over. This ranks up there with pissing on the seat in the stall.

If that's the stupidest step in the recipe would it make the recipe good or bad?

Try making dinner with a soldering iron.  THAT requires skill, imagination and one serious burn kit ;)

If that was written on the index card as a legitimate step, yes.

FTFA:
"My nephew came home from Afghanistan complaining about the food in the mess hall," says Jody Anderson, a retired photographer in southern Oregon. "But the soldiers were allowed only to have coffee makers in their rooms."
So Anderson started developing recipes for the coffee maker, including ones for mac 'n' cheese, short ribs and chicken soup.

Pfffff I was making ramen and cookies* with my coffemaker 20+ years ago in college.  What a startling "new" trend.

*not at the same time.

/trick is to slice them tubes of pre-made cookie dough thin and fry them on both sides on the burner.

It's solutions for people that don't need solutions.

a note here, most hotel room i have been in have mini coffee makers rather than full sized ones, that said i have not stayed at anything greater Holiday Inn level.

Heh, when I go to cons I stock up on a lot of "Just Add Water" products (Yakisoba, instant potatoes, Ramen, etc) because while most hotels don't have a simple microwave, they have a coffee maker in-room. Surprisingly enough, there are a -lot- of items you can take that require no more than hot water to "cook."

/could write a small book on them.

You can usually get hot water in jail, too.  Not that I would know anything about that ;)

I was thinking if you were cooking a hot dog, maybe.  But then I searched-  Apparently, its been done.

A whole pot of coffee for dinner was a hallmark of my college years.

Was that used for cooking food, or large amounts of heroin?

I still cook in the firebox of a steam engine on occasion.Have done potatoes ,corn,squash,yams,and the occasional pork loin.

"OH YEAH?  I USE MY COFFEE MAKER FOR COOKING".

I used to take out the coffee filter piece and make ramen from the hot water in the pot when I was living in the dorms in college.

I'm such a farking hipster, I use my coffee maker to make coffee, but I don't drink it, because coffee is farking gross.

/actually, I use a french press to make coffee for my wife every morning.
//but yeah, coffee? boo.

You can also cook hot dogs in a drip style coffee maker. Put the wieners in the pot and let the hot water drip into and fill it. Let the dogs steep in the hot water for a few minutes. Really impresses the ladies, but imparts a meaty, garlicky flavor to the next pot of coffee

I'll keep this in mind if I ever find myself in the mountains of Afghanistan.  Until then, I have a stove, thanks.

I see it more as a sign that people are running out of new ways to stay relevant on the internet, I imagine it's going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.

Three decades ago in college, this was how several people on my dorm floor cooked their food because plate warmers weren't allowed, but coffee makers were. Absolutely nothing new under the sun this morning.
 
2013-11-19 08:33:30 AM
I used to use my iron as a hot plate for cooking.

What's wrong with a hot pot? With that and my iron, there wasn't much I couldn't cook. That I could afford to eat in college, that is.

No fish (and no popcorn) in the microwave. Office rule. Make it so.
