Sorry, but I couldn't tell why you answered my posts as you did. It seems like you are a busy person and so not carefully reading posts (which I can understand), but I kept at it because I wanted to stand 1000% behind waterless cooking, and you seemed to keep pooh-poohing it.
If you read my first post, I came out in support of waterless cooking of vegetables, but also agreeing that one doesn't need special cookware to achieve it.
You answered "Go read On Food and Cooking by Harold McGee. Vitamins are lost for many reasons. Water solubiity is one and steaming doesn't stop all of that nor does so called waterless cooking. Heat also breaks down certain vitamins. The waterless technique is no better than vegie steamers."
I don't know why you answered that way since my point wasn't about the loss of vitamins, but even if it were, boiling causes more damage than steaming.
You then said "Yes, I know it's steaming. Thus my stating that a vegie steamer is the equivalent. Yes, I've had food in this technique and for a few things, it's OK. Not better than other tecniques for flavor and down right horrid in many ways for texture where they pack the whole meal in there and cook it as long as the item that needs the longest cooking."
Okay, I thought, maybe I didn't make it clear enough I was talking about boiling versus waterless cooking (not versus saute, for example). But then, you also tried to say steaming and waterless cooking are equivalent, and that's just not true for a number of reasons which I cited.
It seems to me you don't know about waterless cooking. I'd guess that is likely due to, like most chefs, preferring to saute or roast veggies plus vegetables are not your main focus in cooking (as they are for me). Not faulting you for that if that's the case, but a person living on veggies/grains is more focused on extracting and preserving every bit of flavor possible, and waterless cooking is the best way to achieve that sans oil cooking.
So I am not trying to be difficult about all this, but I am trying to HIGHLY recommend waterless cooking! As I have already said a couple of times, one doesn't need special pans to cook that way, and we shouldn't let scammers detract from the great benefits of the waterless technique itself.
