I found a recipe for sous vide dulce de leche that uses 1 cup jelly jars with canning lids. - grannyjones
I have a vague recollection of making something that was just like the caramel in a mars bar, and although I forget how exactly I did it, I think it may have been as simple as a can of sweetened condensed milk in a microwave. (Not in the actual can of course!) Have you experimented with microwaving it instead of boiling it at all? - gtoal
Installing Threaded Inserts in to Plywood
Well, in a since it is sous vide. But the condensed milk is left in the original can when boiling it. I don't know what would happen if you tried to put it in a cooking bag in the traditional sous vide method. Might be worth a try though. :-)
1 Ingredient Caramelish Topping
I've thought about putting glue in to the hole just before screwing in the insert. I can't drill all the way through because the bottom of the bench will actually be a side wall that is exposed to the elements when the bench is closed.
so is this possible with sous vide? - grannyjones
One thing I have heard is that you have to make sure it's pure sweetened condensed milk. In southeast Asia (at least where I have been), they add palm oil to it. And for some reason, it messes it up when you try to do this trick. But if it's the real deal, yeah man, dulce de leche!!! Love it. - offseid
Indestructible Cat Wand (for Cat Play)
I had to remove several screws that weren't broken, but the special bit (12.5mm Torx) they needed was impossible to find. Using a Dremel tool, I cut a straight-slot in to the head of the screw then used a screw driver to remove it.Your technique is great when the screw head is flush with the surface it is screwed in to. My process works when there is enough of the screw head above the surface. I had 10 of these to remove, and while your process would have worked, it probably would have been a bit tedious. :-)I am going to search Instructables to see if anyone else has posted this yet, otherwise I plan on doing an instructable for it.

Disc\Wafer Switch for battery operated device
Keep a Roll of "something" Neat and Tidy.
These devices were originally designed to be used in particleboard type products, allowing for a high strength machine thread fastener to be used in assembly of cabinets, this also included plywood and other manmade products as well as some plastics, so I do not see why the manufacturer would caution against their use in the above. Although a t-nut is preferred for this type of duty, it is not always an option and these inserts handily filled a need.
Installing threaded inserts in to plywood
Yeah, after trying this, I'd be in real danger if I could just go buy it ready made off the shelf.
I can see this method working much better since the water will not boil off. I'm guessing that the water\can get hot enough to complete the caramelizing in 30 minutes instead of 3 hours boiling in a stove-top pot. My wife does a lot of canning. Guess next time I need a few cans of this stuff I will be borrowing her pressure cooker. :-)
I did it for 3 hours. But that's just how I learned to do it. But one of the commenters below (dignarueda) says she does it in a pressure cooker for 20-30 minutes. If you are going to boil it as I did, then maybe experiment with different times. Maybe 2 hours at first, then extend the time to see what time come out good for you. Remember to judge the caramel AFTER it has cooled to room temperature.
That looks so easy, perfect for me. I have a question, how long do you boil the can for? - dswaim
We're lucky in the UK, the same company that sells condensed milk also sells it ready caramelised in the tin, it's sooooo good :) - snowy1998
I do the same but using a pressure cooker. I place several cans into the pot and cover them with water up to 2-3 inches of water on top of the cans. Cook for 20-30 mins, depending if you like the caramel lighter or darker. Let them cool off before opening and enjoy. - dignarueda
That's not true. My cat hates outside and even with the doors left open he will not dain to go anywhere near outside. He lives a great life even plush life and he knows it and he is part bobcat. He is very bonded with my little pup. She doesn't likeoutside either.

I was just joking with a friend that I couldn't watch this election's presidential debates for fear of throwing something at the TV. So I thought to make a TV screen protector similar to yours.
This is what I was thinking to use too.
