Moosedick Gladys Greengroin: You're supposed to use Vodak.Only the uninitiated use Vodka.
GRCooper: If, after all of this you decide to do it, remember - landscape, not portrait
ggowins: 80 proof vodka is still 60% water so...
poorjon: I actually tried this once. The whole thing turns into a box of puppies
recondite cetacean: I've wanted to put ethanol in a coffee maker for a while now. I support your curiosity.
poorjon: I actually don't just play a chemist on TV, and I think I can give a serious answer. The immediate and most dramatic result would be physical rather than chemical.When water falls into hot oil it causes a steam explosion - water sinks to the bottom and boils, the vapor is about 1,000 x larger than the liquid, so it displaces a large amount of oil as fine droplets. If you're lucky this makes a greasy mess. It will probably burn you, and it might start a fire.Vodka is about 60:40 water:ethanol, which makes things kind of interesting. Ethanol can emulsify water and oil, helping them mix. My gut intuition is it would probably result in more but smaller steam bubbles, probably making the oil froth up a lot, but without the violent spattering. However, it will probably froth out of the container. Now the vapor has flammable ethanol in it, and if there's a source of ignition, you've got a BLEVE on your hands.Chemically speaking: the water might saponify the triglycerides, making a bit of soap, and the ethanol might transesterify them, making a bit of biodiesel. Neither reaction is very dramatic, and you probably wouldn't notice the difference.TLDR: it might not be as bad as just water, but it has the potential to be WAYYY worse
lendrak: Unless he is deepfrying in a pressure cooker
Snotnose: Unless you're a good distance away from anything flammable, dumping Vodka into boiling oil sounds like a really bad idea.On the other hand, if you have a really stupid friend you don't really care about, and are a good distance from anything flammable you do care about, this sounds like it could be hella fun./ This makes me sound like a sociopath// Or maybe a psychopath/// So how come I'm not running a Fortune 500 company making 8 figures a year plus options?
