I'm Stella Parks, aka BraveTart, Senior Editor at Serious Eats, AMA [R]3 weeks agoTheBraveTart posted submission on AskCulinary.

I'm the resident pastry wizard at Serious Eats—technically, my title is senior editor, but when Ed Levine gives you a nickname, you stick with it. I got my first restaurant job at 14, went to the Culinary Institute of America at 18, and have been baking professionally (or writing about it) ever since.
I spent six-odd years writing a cookbook called BraveTart: Iconic American Desserts, a New York Times bestseller that went on to nab a James Beard Award. You may be more familiar with my pal Kenji, who wrote the foreword. My book covers the history behind everything from Snickers to Snickerdoodles, with recipes for all that and more.
I approach baking as a craft, so my recipes are all about spending time in the kitchen because it's fun. For me, making a homemade Klondike bar is as satisfying as eating it, so it's rare that my recipes quick or easy; I don't see baking as a chore to be done with ASAP, but a pleasurable way to explore new ingredients and technique.
No shame if that's not your jam—some people would prefer to get out of the kitchen and on with life, and others would prefer not to get into the kitchen at all. Quick and easy recipes, as well as store bought treats, are there for folks who need them. You'll get no shade from me.
I'll pop by as much as I can today to answer questions about whatever comes up. I love talking about American desserts and baking traditions, technique both classic and modern, as well as equipment and culinary history, and copycat recipes. I'm easily derailed by anything relating to the Dragon Age fandom, Star Trek (particularly DS9), WebToons, and Bjork. AMA!
Update: Okay, it's 9pm and time to go play some vidja games. Big thanks to u/albino-rhino for having me, and to everyone who stopped by. If you still have a burning question, just remember it's AMA every day on twitter and Serious Eats.

Weirdly, I don't have any special cleaning gear at all. Dishsoap, hot water, and a few scrubbies (those classic green scouring pads, a stainless steel sponge scrubbers, and a chain link scrubber, which is probably the most obscure thing I own). I don't even have barkeeper's friend, lol.
Most pastry projects are easy to clean with a hot soak in soapy water, or else with boiling hot water (like boiling water in a dirty caramel pot).
I do despise cleaning the lid of my food processor, so whenever I can I'll cover the bowl with plastic/parchment/wax paper before closing the lid (more info on Serious Eats), so that it stays clean. This won't work if you need to use the pour spout, or with heavy doughs that will bump up against the lid, but it's great for keeping fine powders out of the lid, like when grinding nut flours or freeze dried fruit, etc.
My friend got me a new cast iron 10" Finex skillet for my birthday. This thing is a beast! [R]6 months, 2 weeks agoProteus-aeruginosa posted submission on BuyItForLife.

Cooking also means cleaning. What are your tips on cleaning the kitchen and overall organisation? [R]1 year, 5 months agoMarch 18, 2018

For cleaning my steel and cast iron, I use one of those chainmail scrubbers. It seems a lot more durable than steel wool and is easier on my hands.

Just got my CI less than a month ago. Have been using it about twice a week- loving every minute of it. I have read through the main part of the cleaning cast iron portion of this subreddit and was wondering if using a stainless steel pad is ok? I use it gently- enough to clean the stick-on bits and that’s it. I’m in no particular rush to get the worlds greatest seasoning on there. I would like to add that I do plan on getting some chain mail as well.

I personally think stainless steel pad does too much damage to my seasoning and I'm not that careful with it
If you cook with cast iron every day I highly recommend these https://www.amazon.com/Amagabeli-Stainless-Chainmail-Scrubber-Pre-Seasoned/dp/B01A51S9Y2/ref=sr112?ie=UTF8&qid=1520952588&sr=8-12&keywords=stainless+steel+pad. They are a bit more expensive initially but they last forever, and are all you need. No salt, no scrubbing pads. Just a bit of detergent when necessary. I get all my cast Iron clean with it and I don't think it does any harm to the seasoning.

How the fuck do you clean it? My husband got one for Christmas, did the whole baking with oil on it thing. Cook some pork chops on it, and now I've been scrubbing this disgusting burnt pan for the last half hour, without soap, and losing the battle. Why are these so loved? Did we do something wrong? Grrr.

If you cook with cast iron, this is a great item to use to clean it. Just hot water and this scrubber, and it is clean.
With my birthday coming up I would love your help in building a list of things to get. [R]3 years, 1 month agosaboola posted submission on CampfireCooking.

Hello all. As a first time poster and an introduction before I get into the business portion of this post I want to say I love the idea of cooking. So about me, im a culinary student and I love cooking. Nuff said.
So like the title says, my birthday is coming up and because i've only just now started putting some thought into cooking outside of an actual kitchen I would like to get some help! Specifically with what I should get.
What would be the ultimate starters guild that you could recommend. Whether you build it from different products or know of an actual kit. Both would be appreciated. Im assuming there are all sorts of cool things to buy that range in price. But price aside, what does reddit think I should buy?
Thanks ladies and gents!e

A chain mail scrubber for your cast iron pans. Works amazing to clean them and not destroy the seasoning of the pan. Requires little upkeep and stores easy.
