Just a little experiment here. I have noticed that there are sometimes interesting but unrelated side discussions within single topic threads.
For example, some regulars discussing their own trivial issues within a thread from someone asking for advice - but completely unrelated to what the original poster was asking. Or having an interesting conversation on chicken stock within a paring knife thread (yes, that happened!).
So, I thought, why not create a 'small talk' thread, for all our trivial questions, side discussions, and other things without messing up e.g. the deals thread or those from people asking for advice. Or when we feel a certain issue not deserving a single thread.
Everyone can ask/discuss anything here related to cooking and cookware. I have no idea how this will go, and expect it to fissle out soon, but let's see.
