 There is one saucepan that we own in which I  burn whatever I am cooking about 50% of the time.  It seems that putting stuff in that saucepan produces in me an irresistible desire to wander away, leaving it on the heat and not come back in time to prevent incineration.


Domestic conundrums

Will the dogs like singed scrambled eggs?

How come a cast iron griddle isn't suitable for an induction hob?  Surely if it is cast iron, it must be magnetic?

Why do all induction-friendly frying pans come lined with Teflon?

Why after years of drinking exclusively coffee, have I suddenly developed an Earl Grey Tea habit?

Do I need a teapot? 

What happened to the teapot that I owned once upon a time?

Isn't there a teapot on top of the kitchen cupboard above the microwave?

Yes there is, but it's that weird one that your relatives bought that is in the shape of a cat and you take his head off to put tea in. I find it strangely disturbing.

Once-upon-a-time I used to have a nice plain brown one.

1) you were entirely correct on this one.

2) philmophlegm has reminded me that we do have a teapot, it's just a peculiarly 'quirky' one. Am not yet decided whether it's too quirky to live with.

If you find a teapot without annoying quirks (drippy spout, red hot handle), then let me know.

It is truly remarkable how many teapots drip. You'd think that would be the one thing they were designed NOT to do. But apparently not.

I did find a non-Tefal inductionable frying pan, which is something.

What you've both said about teapots, really.

I look forward to the Saucepan of Disaster becoming a regular feature of future RPing campaigns. A very desirable magic item. Or is it a cursed Saucepan of Wandering & Forgetting?

ISTR someone having a +1 Frying Pan when I was at Essex.
