More Exploding Kitchenware


Via, Crooked Timber, I hear that Southern Living magazine (circulation 2 million +) has recalled a recipe as a "potential fire and safety hazard."


Please DO NOT USE the Icebox Rolls recipe that appeared on p. 154 of the April 2004 issue of Southern Living. It has been determined that heating the water and shortening, as described in the original recipe, is dangerous, and may pose a fire and safety hazard. DO NOT USE this recipe.


Apparently, the original recipe called for boiling water and shortening together for five minutes, a plan likely to cause hot bits of fat to spatter around the kitchen. Probably, the worst effects result from pouring cold water into a pan with hot shortening, causing a jet of steam to launch a cloud of fat droplets, or so some speculate.

It's also possible to make water alone explode! By superheating it in a microwave.
