    I can beat that, pain of boiling water with vinegar (white wine vin). Drop in your eggs (no vortex). Now...... Bang a lid on it and turn the power off. leave it for 3 -3 1/2 minutes. Perfect every time!! Nice deep pan! Not a frying pan like those muppets on masterchef tried!!

    Use an old jar for mixing vinaigrettes, or for mixing eggs.

    Sour cream in mashed potatoes with white pepper is better than double cream and black pepper.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    I used to do rice this way and loved it. I stopped after the whole arsenic thing came out. Now I soak the rice for a couple of hours after a good rinse. Rinse again and put it in a pan with as much water as it can hold. It may not taste as good but I couldn't serve it up to the kids the way it was. I wouldn't touch rice in a restaurant if I knew it was cooked in this way.

    Poached eggs. Rather than stressing about vortexes, buy a handy silicone poacher from Lakeland and pop your egg in one of those before putting in the water. Put a light coating of oil on the silicone first and it slides out. Genius buy.

    Great shout about knives earlier. Get the best you can afford even if it means buying one a year or every two years.
