  • Heat Sensitive Pots

    September 10th, 2008
    ideas  [html]
    Back in Medford. Lots of moving things, unpacking, Julia painting, getting library card... I start at BBN on the 15th. One thing I was thinking about with Jonah (potwasher) while washing dishes at Pinewoods was that it would be good if you could easily tell the temperature of a pot by looking at it. Surely there are heat sensitive chemicals, changing color as they heat up. So why not put this on the outside of a pot? Then the potwasher knows when a hot pot has been put on his dirty rack. And the cooks know if somehting out of the dishwasher has yet cooled to touchable temperature. If it works well, you could even use it in the cooking itself -- is the skillet hot enough? See what color it is.
