... and here she says 1 inch. Every copy of her recipe on the internet also says 1 inch. I'd go with what the majority of people say... or verify with her book. https://www.google.com/amp/www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/outrageous-brownies-recipe3.amp Personally, I've been using Martha's brownie recipe. It's a diet recipe... only 8x8 pan so there are fewer calories! http://www.marthastewart.com/314726/fudgy-chocolate-brownies
I would take a skeptical second look at any brownie recipe that results in a product thicker than about 1 inch. A 2 inch thick "brownie" is a "flourless cake".
Not a weird question but more of a poignant observation. Women love men who can cook. It satisfies thir taste buds and their souls, and relieves them of the sole duty that some women seem to find unsatisfying, burdensome or demeaning. In my case I stole a woman from a chef... not because I could cook better (which I won't even speculate about) and not because I'm more handsome (which I'm embarrassed to say may be true) and not because I'm more fun (he definitely wins that...
I understand you and feel your pain. I cook for my family but rarely get to do the buying. Sometimes I give my wife an explicit shopping list and she returns with something else... at the suggestion of some-person-in-the-store. I can't tell you how many times I've sent her back and told her to tell the person-in-the-store that if they don't have what I want/need than they should just say so. Sometimes their substitution works but too often it won't.  Meat is particular...

Value-laden snide comments aside... the right amount to use is "to taste".
Ah, those salmon eggs. I often wondered what they would taste like on a blini. And don't get me reminiscing about Grandmas and blackberries. Mine would always offer to bake me a pie if I'd pick the blackberries. But before I did so she'd tell me that if the neighbor gives me any trouble I should tell him that those brambles once were on her property. I later learned that she was correct... but it was 2 generations prior! I have a root canal and crown from the last...
Quick control of burner temp. Ability to roast peppers over the flame. Ability to warm tortillas directly over the flame. Works during a power blackout (have matches ready though because electronic spark or Hot surface igniters not much good when power fails. Only negative I can think of is the smell from hand hair or towels burning when cook is clumsy and gets them too close to fire.
I think I'd just cook rather than working that hard making the copper shiny. But that's just me...
