  1. the weight of the blade? lol what an idiot yeah just drop that little 5 ounce knife on anything and its sure to cut right thru.. lmao what a great chef

  2. i love you for let everybody know the right procedure to cook pasta…. you just have to taste it wen cooking to know when to tear off the pasta fron water…. it's simple

  3. the tip for sharpening is wrong…. for first the angles between the blade ad honing steel is not mentioned , a wrong angle will let the knife loosen sharpness trough making a microscopical acute angle on the edge of the knife…
    second, the right way to do it is letting the blade slide from cutting side forward and not backward because it automaticly deburr the edge leaving you a real sharpened blade edge, not a little deburr that is razor sharp but will last just few cuts.

  4. I tried the rice technique tonight. Absolutely beautiful rice. Beautiful aroma and so fluffy and tasty (in a rice cooker though)

  5. I always cut the root off and I have never cried chopping an onion. Does nothing to me.

    No, no, no oil in the water with the pasta. No one in Italy cooks it like that. Stir the pasta while it's cooking and it won't stick together! That's all you've got to do. Surprised he suggests using oil! The oil just floats to the top anyway. It does nothing lol.

    Who salts the pasta after it's cooked?? You put a pinch of rock salt in the boiling water and the pasta will absorb the salty water that way while it's cooking lol. 

    I'm Italian and I have never seen anyone cook it like that in Italy. Salt tastes completely different on cooked food. Try salting a steak before grilling it and after it's grilled. The flavour is not the same and salt on most things is better added BEFORE cooking.

    Can only think of chips when it comes to food that is salted after cooking it.
