Handles for Treasure Chest Cookware

Topic: Waterless Cooking

Question

November 29, 2016

Hi, I have a set of treasure chest cookware from the mid 70s. To the best of my memory, they were 18/8 stainless steel waterless cookware. They are still in excellent condition, except for a couple of handles. Any ideas where I can find them. Thanks

Your cookware sure has lasted a long time. You can check Treasure Chest Cookware, but the company is based in England.

Could magnetic fields be causing problems?

Topic: General

Question

November 14, 2016

Hello Ron,my name is Michael G. McGovern. I am a Plumber and I was looking up info about the effects of a magnetic field on cells. I came upon your information and I found it to be excellent. Thank you.

I believe that the magnetic field from high voltage power lines caused the water in my brother in laws toilet to become hard water and ruin the toilet. I also believe that the same magnetic field caused his three daughters cells to not act according to there specific design. Two of the girls developed type 1 juvenile diabetes and the third developed thyroid problems. Both are cellular malfunctions.

I looked at the said problems from a plumbing point of view. Because the toilet looked like it had been accumulating deposit of minerals because of hard water but the water was soft I started to wonder how this could be possible. Then I looked out the window and I noticed the high voltage power lines. I believe that the power lines magnetic field caused the water to become hard. Like reversing the softening process. Which could be true.

I also started to read about power lines and their magnetic fields. One thing I did notice was that there is a higher rate of leukemia with people by the power lines. A cellular malfunction again.

Do you think it may be possible, if the magnetic field did cause the cells to not perform correctly, such as it appears to have done with the water. Could these cells which are not functioning correctly due to the effects from the magnetic field be made to in turn act accordingly. Such as we do with hard water?

Sorry if this is long and goofed up but I am trying to stay awake. I just turned 51 and I need a nap. Thank you for your time. Have a safe and positive day. Sincerely

Michael - USA

Answer

High voltage lines radiate electromagnetic fields. Some people are more sensitive to this radiation than others. However, my preference is not to live near them if possible.

Likewise, I don't think it is a good idea to sleep with an electric blanket, since the radiation is right near you, even if it is a lower power. Also, there had been studies about radiation from over-using cell phones or mobile phones. None of the studies actually proved the dangers 100%, but I prefer to be cautious.

The health problems that your nieces have may be a result of the radiation. But doctors really can't tell for sure.

As far as the water becoming hard goes, the minerals have to come from somewhere. High voltage electromagnetic fields wouldn't create those minerals. If he has a water softener, it may be on the blinks. Or maybe he needs one. Others in the neighborhood should have experienced the same problem.

Also, it would be worthwhile to see if other children in that neighborhood were having health problems.

I hope this helps, and best wishes for the health of the girls.

Needs handle for Dine Rite cookware

Topic: Cookware Companies

Question

October 11, 2016

Do you know where I can find long pot handle for Dine Rite waterless cookware? Bought them in 1973

Lizabeth - USA

Answer

I have no listing of the Dine Rite company. The company probably went out of business in the past 43 years.

You might try local repair shop or cookware store to see if you can use some generic handle.

Best wishes in getting your cookware fixed.

With looming budget cuts and states slashing social service programs, I'm sure many people are turning to your site to find free health resources on a daily basis.

Cookware lid whistles

Topic: Waterless Cooking

Question

April 11, 2016

Dear Mr. Kurtus,

Thank you so very much for the educational review of this unique product. It's much appreciated.

I have inherited an old, but pristine set, from my beloved professor of 32 years ago. He may have them that long or longer. He told me he got them from United Surgical Steel Co Inc. in Montgomery ALA on a teacher's discounted plan. He taught in New Orleans.

At any rate, I did some investigation (thanks to your informative site) and it seems they were manufactured by American Cookware Inc.

Which brings me to the reason for reaching out:
The tops have a spring loaded handle. I have tried to tighten them so they would sit flush to the lid but there is a space where steam escapes from. The issue is a very loud whistling that occurs when steam escapes. It's rather irritating to say the least. If I tilt the top the steam releases that way and no whistling occurs. But then the pot's not completely covered.

Would you be able to offer any advise regarding how to manage this feature?

Other than that the cookware is phenomenal. I enjoy cooking and so did he. This, in part, is what makes my inheritance so very special, as they lasted his lifetime. I'm certain they'll last mine.

Thank you so very much,
Gigi Canales

Answer

One thing you can try is to call United Surgical Steel Co Inc. at (334) 281-3440. It is a long shot, but they may be able to help you.

You might also check American Cookware's Facebook page.

Also, you might try a local repair shop to see if they can fix the problem.

I hope this helps. Best wishes on getting your cookware lid fixed.

Getting a dental x-ray

Topic: X-ray Risks

Question

March 1, 2016

what is the safe way for taking dental x rays,
how to take the dental x ray?
procedure please.
thanks

Rahmat - Pakistan

Answer

Most dental x-ray machines have low dosages of radiation and are safe. However, the dental technician should provide a lead vest to protect the reproductive areas of your body.

Usually a film container or x-ray detector is held on the inside area of the teeth being examined by the x-rays.
