Does Stainless Steel have a CAS Number?

User Avatar
However stainless steel and steel are not part of the European REACH directive (1907-2006-EC) there seem to be some examples of CAS numbers for stainless steel, however this looks more like a individual initiative from the supplier / producer. Example: CAS 7439-89-6 ThyssenKrupp Stainless Steel is not a chemical substansion as meant by REACH, but a product with several chemical elements. These elements do have a CAS number.

What is formal food service?

User Avatar
a sweet tender starter which may include pieces of a choice of fish, chicken, lamb, etc. If vegetarian you can serve dishes of vegetable potatoes or other fresh ranges. I think the question may refer to 'Silver Service': the diners are seated and waiters or servers move round the table offering each dish. Food is offered to the right of the diner and is placed on the diner's plate by the waiter using a fork and spoon, rather like chopsticks, to lift and transport the food. Between courses wine waiters move around the table filling glasses which are placed on the table just above the knives at the right hand side of the plate. After a course, plates and cutlery are cleared by servers moving in to the Left side of the diner. Then the next course is served in a similar way to the right of the diner. There may be a toast in between courses when the host at the head of the table or a toastmaster will announce the toast. Diners may be expected to stand, to raise their glasses and repeat the phrasing of the toast, for example, "The Queen" before reseating themselves. The array of cutlery and wine glasses at a formal dinner may be bewildering - the usual rule is to begin outside and work inwards. The serving staff will remove each piece of cutlery, crockery or wine glass as it becomes redundant and you simply pick up the outermost utensil for the next course.

Is Betty Crocker Super Moist cake mix two tier?

User Avatar
Depends on the size of the cake. When I'm making a cake I use one box for one tier. The sizes are on the back of the box. If using round cake pans they show two cakes but they're not very thick cakes. Tiers are usually at least 3" thick. The cakes are usually only 1-2" baked (2 - 9" rounds) My advice is to google (Wilton.com has a good size chart) how many boxes per pan you need for the size cake you're trying to make. I have used that cake mix before for a 4 tier round cake. I used a thread to split both cakes in half and cooled them down. I then put one of the tops of the cake facing down on the plate and began layering and filling.

If you did not add sugar would the ice cream have frozen faster?

User Avatar
it may or may not freeze faster, but the sugar acts as an antifreeze to suppress the growth of large ice crystals giving the ice cream a creamer texture.

What is guava paste good for?

User Avatar
Goiabada (guava paste) is a popular dessert throughout the Portuguese-speaking countries of the world, dating back to the colonial days in Brazil, where guavas were used as a substitute for the quinces used to make marmelada (quince cheese). An abundance of sugar and slave labour were crucial for its confection, in large cauldrons cooking over a slow fire. It is a conserve made of guava and sugar. It is still commonly made at home for family use or by home industry outlets (traditional recipes) or as processed food
