l’d be lost without an instant read thermometer. It’s so handy to check the oil temperature before you start frying placki ziemnieczane or to check meat for doneness. This model is perfect because it’s also water proof. I’m sorry to say I’ve lost more than one instant thermometer because I accidentally dropped it into liquid.
I’d tried other pierogi makers, and this is by far my favorite. I love that you get three, because you should have people helping you make pierogi, many hands make light work, and they give you beautiful, uniformly shaped pierogi everytime!
Not exactly Polish, but we’re having a blast with this pizza oven! I’ve wanted to get my husband a pizza oven for years, but they’re so expensive, especially when pizza making may be a passing fancy. This is the most affordable, functional one I’ve found. It uses wood pellets, and gets super hot, 700 degrees seems to be ideal. It makes small, individual sized pizzas in about two minutes. There’s even a Uuni facebook groups to share ideas, dough recipes, and pizza glamor shots. We’ve been playing with this for six months and are still having delicious artisian pizza a couple of nights a week.
It seems that our family has a thing for thermometers, but this is so helpful if you have the Uuni pizza oven. It’s so easy to check the temp of your pizza stone, a big help in managing the fire. Once you have it you’ll find other uses like checking the temp of the swimming pool water from across the yard. 😉
This silicone mat is so handy for rolling out dough. The measurement guides help you keep it round or rectangular, whatever you’re going for and the right size. It gives you a clean surface for rolling and makes for quick and easy clean up.
You have to be a big fan to want to order this much chai concentrate, but my daughter and I love a spicy chai and this is by far the best we’ve found on the market.
