bit odd. feel free to disagree, or discuss your preferred warming methods (gotta be hot water method)
and you do. it's what you do, after all
you got done
that it scalds his penis.
Wouldn't the water method be a bit of a faff?
no real faff
I had never seen this before until current gf. She does it all the time. Last night we had spag bol in bowls. I got the bowls out ready while I was making it and she boiled the kettle and poured some water in. I didn't notice and, not looking, went to pick up a fork that was in one of the bowls and just stuck my hand in boiling water. Pre-heating is fine, but this is pretty weird, I told her.
you do it in an oven if at all
lunacy of the highest order
the oven was on as well coz we had some garlic bread to go with it. Mental
1. Make food hot
2. Put hot food onto plate
3. Hot food makes plate hot
(some people ask me how I got to be so genius)
the hot food making the plate hot, is also cooling the food down? Physics.
you're planning on eating your food like an adult or spending twenty minutes looking at it and cutting it up into really small pieces or something, i guess.
plates should be warm. what the hell is wrong with you people?!1
can't see that it makes a great deal of difference.
see you later.
never seen anyone do it.
don't be that guy, pal
1 minute 30 seconds on high in the microwave.
People who eat off cold plates are worse than rats.
<space reserved for a joke about balonz's mums hot rat>
If you're making something like pasta or boiled veg you can use the hot water to warm the plates/bowls, if you're cooking something in the oven you can use it to warm the plates, otherwise don't bother.
Just get it down yer neck quicker!
the 'dinner' bit makes you sound like a child
also: let the past go. just hug royter.
If whatever's been cooked was cooked in the oven/grill then they just put the plates in there for about half a minute. Don't know what they do if not, but it certainly isn't that hot water faff.
But no, I don't do it. I don't notice the difference.
just not necessary.
I literally cannot think of anything more pointlessly whitebread than warming up your sad little plates before dinner
you Kiwi cockroach.
that's quite a line-up
I'm going to start introducing myself like this
I said I don't warm the plates up, I just burnt myself last night because i wasn't expecting the plates to be in the process of being warmed. Don't tar me with no plate-warming brush
Can't remember what it is though.
but then I made a massive faux pas and ruined everything. Imagine saying roast dinner! Just another chapter in a life full of regret
I would have jumped on anyone who said this. it just so happened to be you. no beef, man.
Might start a thread about it then get it deleted. brb
but that's for another time
Actually, it sounds like it's probably a great idea, I just don't do it.
Are you my mate who came round on Friday?
Cold plates = NO
One time I went to a friend's house and he made some scrambled egg. All the egg on the cold plate went cold and it was a nightmare. Never again
Knowing it was the last time you'd ever eat together again.
It sounds like there are multiple issues here, to be honest.
(i dont bother).
but this water method is some next level stuff
But ignore the thousands of liters of much, much cooler air that's circulating in the room you're eating in?
Preferably start a small fire around the dining table too.
and eat straight from the casserole.
What's the point of cooking anything on the hob when there is all that cold air in the world!
And a pot made of a high specific heat capacity material which is minimizing conductive losses from the rest.
Your meat and two veg (steady) sparsely arranged on a tepid plate isn't going to stay noticeably warmer in the time it takes you to eat it due to a pre-warmed plate and its meager amount of heat. Unless you've put the plate on the hob too.
I agree that it makes little difference to an inhaled bowl of alphabeti-spaghetti.
or eat out of saucepans.
(i didnt understand any of it but it sounded ace.)
I've gone full science wanker in there and Balonz is having none of it.
but with hot water? Really?
Seems a bit silly in summer. They are stored near the oven so no real issues there. If needs be I just put them on one of the spare hobs to warm up, either the oven heat or one of the other hobs does the business.
exactly what I'm looking for on here:
Inane topic with a batshit opinion and a collection of different views and a smattering of insults.
That sounds very energy efficient. Fucking hell.
from its use at breakfast
My nan does this all the time though. You're old so I'll just assume its an old person thing. Has sexybum posted yet?
and that's what he slipped on
Excessive if anything.
I've never done this in my life, nor will I ever attempt it. Makes no difference to anything other than the warmer's sense of self-satisfaction
and use it in almost all life situations from now on
It's pretty meta, you wouldn't understand.
where do people come up with this stuff..weirdos
(a hot plate where you plug it in or light candles to warm a curry or whatever) Not me.
She has a hot plate obsession. Even if I cook them dinner she'll skulk around the kitchen trying to put the plates in the top oven (this is how she does it, incidently)
And I'm using it to out myself as a plate-warmer (of the oven if on/microwave method).
but you forget to insult the cold plated scum cunts.
Like a real man.
HOWEVER, in certain instances where the meal is made up of a number of different items from various sources (such as a roast) i.e. where it's not possible to serve all items at once, I believe plate warming is necessary.
The tub of your lasagne-for-one is probably warm when it comes out of the microwave
I assume tears are body temperature, so do they warm or cool the food?
remain unsubstantiated yet entirely plausible.
where you're doing the whole 'juggling the elements' thing and items may be different temperatures when served.
Kiss my face.
terrible idea tbf
For 2 reasons: because when I get takeaway I get excessive amounts, and because it takes a little while to dish everything up. Just bang the plates in the microwave for a minute before the food arrives, and the food won't be cold at the end.
It keeps your food nice and toasty, like a blanket.
For a tenner.
I KNOW IT'S SPELT DIFFERENTLY I DON'T CARE.
a warm plate is standard, no? imagine getting your food on a cold plate. imagine
I try to warm plates at home in the oven if it's on. Sometimes whack them under the grill for a minute. But yeah, no big deal. Just serve smaller portions and let the food keep hot in the pan/oven and then have seconds.
*watch out it's really hot*. It's rarely that hot (of course you touch it) it's just their way of saying *we heated your mother fucking plate*.
I say let's burn every restaurant in the country to the ground.
I thought it was to stop you throwing it straight back in their stupid face(s).
makes it easy
I've been to many an Indian restaurant where they dry your plate in front of you before putting it down, having employed the water method only moments before.
not because they pour hot water onto them
Well, a basin of hot water isn't a big hassle either.
we're on the same team here and the last thing I want to do is knock your method but a quick spin in the microwave whilst your finishing everything off is zero hassle.
Still, flying them to the Sun and back or roasting them in the fires of hell would be better than eating off a cold plate.
If this is SO MENTAL why do restaurants do it?
I mean, I can rarely be bothered but it's hardly crazy.
You fucking people.
to create the illusion that you couldn't possibly cook the same meal yourself
I mean, if the oven is on you just pop a plate in for a couple of minutes at the end.
If you're plating up a bunch of different things it's just good to keep everything warm...that's all.
but the put the plate/food under that hot light whilst waiting for the waiter.
I meant to reply and say, "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? WARMING PLATES IS A THING. IT'S BEEN A THING FOR FUCKING DECADES, PARTICULARLY IN RESTAURANTS!"
But I This'd it instead so hey-ho.
Under the hot lamp?
oh the dishes need to be there anyway?
oh well letss just
i dont know where I am going with this
How ARE they warming the plates? I can't work it out.
Hot lamp method?
Sitting on it method?
Hot water bottle method?
God knows. If they're using the hot lamp method, they're not really heating the plates on purpose they're just heating the plates cause thats where the plates sit, ya know?
They have a special warming cupboard for plates. Like these:
Just pop it in the microwave
and you'll generally be using your microwave for heating up various food things.
It's kept warm (dunno how, a filament somewhere) and chefs take them out of there.
Restaurants do it to disguise the fact that everything is served lukewarm because they're cackhanded at bringing the different elements together on time, and also because it will then sit there until the other dishes for that table are ready, and then has to be carried across a restuarant.
do you do that as well?
Wow, I feel silly now.
Coming to think of it, I probably only make my bed because I've seen them do it in hotels.
I don't fold a napkin into the shape of a swan before eating at home either
and shut up.
No time to read what you posted to me or meths - I have a point to belabour
Serving someone a hot meal on a cold plate is cuntery of the highest order.
Last Friday. A couple of beers in Mayfair.
It was very mice.
A few things:
1. he did not introduce himself as Silky
2. He was a true gent (he rolled me 2 rollups)
3. We had a really good chat about stuff.
(I apologise to everyone but will still click on post reply. Sorry again)
Silky LICKS pussy.
If you're going to slam the man-child, do it right.
heat up the plate for din
this is the greatest post I have ever seen!
Probably 6th best post in the thread (this is the 4th best).
now there's a username you can set your watch to
(please call your daughter Lulu).
No, he neither ate nor licked.
Interesting. This must be the first time the silkman has spent more than 15 mins in the company of a woman and not pleasured her since he was 8. Hate to see Friedal-esque records like that broken
I like to think it means Tiny Vagina, although I suspect it might not be that.
(were it not for the fact that I dumped The Arm. Do keep up!)
Proper silktown is Mayfair
The case continues.
Cutlery in the microwave. Done.
My mind is proper blown and I feel a little bit sick
Is it a posh thing?
it's also aspiring posh
DID YOU HEAR THAT PLATE WARMERS? YOU'RE ALL THE WORST.
It's a lifestyle choice. The kind that takes its shoes off at the door to preserve the carpet
Bleak man, bleak.
Actually had to walk away from my desk.
"I sometimes cut out the middle man and just climb in the oven
and eat straight from the casserole."
Gypshits being my favourite so far.
I needed to heat the food and the microwave wasn't working
What a cockmuncher
to make sure my hands are warm enough.
black trough sufficiently
