20 common cooking mistakes you're making without even realizing it

Shutterstock/Petr Malyshev Everyone — even chefs — make mistakes in the kitchen. We gathered up some of the most common blunders. Examples include cooking meat straight from the refrigerator, crowding your pan, boiling instead of simmering, and not using enough water to boil your pasta. No matter if you're a professional or an amateur, everyone makes mistakes in the kitchen. We gathered up some of the most common cooking blunders, based both on this infographic and our own research. Whether it's overseasoning or overcrowding the pan, chances are that if you cook you've made most of these mistakes at least once. Keep scrolling to see some of the blunders that could be sabotaging your home-cooked meals.You're using the wrong oil InaTs / iStock Extra virgin olive oil works well for cooking many things, but not everything. If you're cooking something that requires particularly high heat, you're better off using a different oil, since EVOO has a low smoke point — i.e. it starts to burn at a low temperature. Click here to see a breakdown of cooking oils » You're cooking meat that's not at room temperature Frédérique Voisin-Demery / Flickr Meat that's at room temperature will cook more evenly than meat that's coming straight out of the fridge. It's best to let meat warm up for about 30 minutes before cooking it to ensure that all parts of it cook all the way through.  You're not using enough water when boiling pasta nosonjai / Shutterstock Are your noodles sticking together? Contrary to popular belief, adding olive oil to your water won't help. What will help is making sure you're cooking your noodles in plenty of water — probably more than you think you need.

The best 2-in-1 laptops you can buy

The Insider Picks team writes about stuff we think you'll like. Business Insider has affiliate partnerships, so we get a share of the revenue from your purchase. The Insider Pick: A great 2-in-1 offers the best of a laptop and the best of a tablet. In our testing, the Lenovo Yoga 920 came out on top as the best 2-in-1 laptop for people who want the power of a PC and the portability of a tablet. It’s not just a laptop, but it's not just a tablet, either. It’s both! The 2-in-1 laptop has gotten a whole lot better over the past few years, to a point where in many cases, these devices represent a more flexible take on the laptop. The two main types of 2-in-1 laptops include the detachable 2-in-1 and the convertible 2-in-1. With a detachable, you can completely remove the screen from the keyboard to turn your laptop into a real tablet. The convertible, on the other hand, allows you to turn the display completely around the device, so that the keyboard is at the bottom and the touchscreen is easy to use as a tablet. When shopping for a 2-in-1, you should look out for most of the same specifications and features you'd want in a normal laptop. When it comes to operating system, most 2-in-1 devices run Windows, but some use Google’s Chrome OS, which is largely web-based and can run many Android apps. Currently, there aren’t any 2-in-1 devices that run Apple’s MacOS. Apart from that, you’ll also want to think about the specs under the hood. Things like the processor, storage, and RAM all impact how a computer runs. We’re not going to dive into what they all do now, but if you want to, Lifewire has a good guide on how they all work. Last but not least, you’ll also want to think about any extra features. Many people buy 2-in-1 devices for artistic reasons — Some devices come with a stylus that can be useful for graphic design. Other 2-in-1 laptops also have things like a fingerprint sensor and other interesting and modern features. To find the best 2-in-1 laptops you can buy, we tested several devices and read up on all the expert reviews and buyer comments. Updated on 04/04/2018 by Christian de Looper: Added the Asus ZenBook Flip 14 as the best 2-in-1 laptop for graphics and gaming performance. Also updated prices. Read on in the slides below to learn why the Lenovo Yoga 920 is our top pick and why you should also consider the Microsoft Surface Book 2, the Google Pixelbook, the Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, the Lenovo Yoga 710, the Microsoft Surface Pro, and the Asus ZenBook Flip 14.The best 2-in-1 laptop overall Lenovo Why you'll love it: The Lenovo Yoga 920 is well-designed and extremely powerful, making it the best 2-in-1 laptop you can buy. The Lenovo Yoga 920 isn’t just a great 2-in-1 laptop, it’s considered by many, including us, to be one of the best computers you can buy – period. The laptop is beautifully designed with a solid metallic build and a unique, well-designed hinge. Lenovo's fascinating hinge is like no other — it allows you to smoothly and effortlessly transform your laptop into a tablet and back again. It's also quite beautiful. On the Lenovo Yoga 920, you’ll find a few ports, though more would most definitely be welcome. On the left, you’ve got two USB Type-C ports, along with a headphone jack. On the right, you'll see a USB Type-A port. We would have liked to see an SD card slot or another USB port or two, but the selection is still decent, especially in an increasingly wireless world. The laptop packs some pretty great specs under the hood, too. The base model has an 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. You can upgrade the internal components up to an Intel Core i7 chip with 16GB of RAM and a massive 1TB solid state drive if you want. In our experience, using the Lenovo Yoga 920 was an absolute breeze. The computer is convertible, and the touch display worked great, too. Many other reviewers agree – The Verge gave it 8/10, while CNET went a step further to offer it 4.5/5. While we didn’t come across any real downsides in testing the laptop, if we had to nit-pick it was a little annoying that the stylus holder plugs into the USB-A port, which means you lose a port. The laptop is also a little pricey. Pros: Well-designed, powerful, lightweight, great screen, slick design Cons: Expensive Buy the Lenovo Yoga 920 at Best Buy for $1,149.99+ The best 15-inch 2-in-1 laptop Microsoft Why you'll love it: The Microsoft Surface Book 2 may be pricey, but it has incredible specs for a laptop and a pretty sweet design, too. Microsoft has improved its hardware in leaps and bounds over the past few years, and among the best of its current lineup is the Microsoft Surface Book 2. The new Surface Book has a lot to offer — it’s super powerful, reasonably designed, and offers an excellent battery life. Let’s start with the design. The computer really looks like a laptop. It’s not until you actually detach it from the base that you believe that it can really be done. Part of that has to do with the fact that the laptop is pretty bulky, weighing in at 4.2 pounds. It’s clear that the device is built to be both a laptop and a tablet. The headphone jack can be found on the top right of the display, which is a little awkward in laptop mode but works fine in tablet mode. The device also features a nice, big trackpad, and a pretty good-feeling keyboard. Under the hood, the Microsoft Surface Book 2 is a beast. The base model, with a 13.5-inch display, boasts an Intel Core i5 dual-core processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It can be configured, however, to up to an Intel Core i7 quad-core processor with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. The top-tier model also comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 discrete GPU, which is very impressive for a 2-in-1 device. On top of that, Microsoft says the computer will last 17-hours on a charge. The downsides? Well, the biggest and most important one is the price. Even the cheapest model comes in at a pricey $1,499, at least officially, with the more powerful model costing $3,299. That’s not cheap. Still, the laptop has impressed reviewers around the world. The Verge gave it 8/10, PCMag an equivalent 4/5, and TechRadar an even better 4.5/5. Pros: Well-designed, long battery life, ultra-powerful, great screen Cons: Expensive Buy the Microsoft Surface Book 2 on Amazon for $1,382.41+ The best 2-in-1 Chromebook Google Why you'll love it: The Google Pixelbook is well-designed, runs Google’s lightweight Chrome OS, and has some pretty decent specs. Most of the 2-in-1 laptops run Windows, but Windows computers aren’t the only 2-in-1 devices out there. In fact, Google's new Pixelbook is our favorite non-Windows 2-in-1 because it runs ChromeOS and Android apps. The Google Pixelbook is arguably the best Chromebook on the planet. It’s well-designed, super light, relatively powerful, and the keyboard feels amazing. I think it’s the best-feeling keyboard I’ve ever used on a laptop. It’s clicky, tactile, and works like a charm. Under the hood, the laptop features some pretty nice specs – especially for a laptop running the relatively light Chrome OS. The base model has a 7th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The Pixelbook can be upgraded to boast an Intel Core i7, 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB hard drive. One of the best things about Chromebooks is that they can run many Android apps, opening them up to a range of functionality. Sure, the operating system isn’t as versatile as Windows, but for those plugged into Google’s ecosystem and who use Google apps a lot, it should do just fine. The device also works pretty well with the pen, which is unfortunately sold separately. So what are the downsides? Well, there aren’t many. The audio performance of the laptop isn’t the best, though, and there’s no fingerprint sensor or facial recognition for login. Still, most agree that it’s well worth it. CNET gave it 4/5, while TechRadar actually gave it a 5/5. Pros: Beautifully designed, excellent keyboard, powerful for a Chromebook Cons: Audio isn’t the best, expensive for a Chromebook Buy the Google Pixelbook on Amazon for $899+ See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:This online learning platform is helping students get the skills that employers really want — here are the top 15 courses from the siteAdidas Ultra Boost vs Nike Air VaporMax: How 2 of the most popular running shoes stack upThe best canteens you can buy

McMaster unleashes on Russia in his final speech as national security adviser

REUTERS/Carlos Barria Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster came out swinging against Russia in his last public address before stepping down as national security advisor next week, blasting Russian President Vladimir Putin for trying to undermine democratic societies and urging the West to counter Russia’s malign influence abroad. “For too long, some nations have looked the other way in the face of these threats. Russia brazenly and implausibly denies its actions, and we have failed to impose sufficient costs,” McMaster said Tuesday night, speaking at an Atlantic Council dinner alongside leaders from the three Baltic nations in town to meet with President Donald Trump.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Why North Korea agreed to meet with TrumpSee Also:31 celebrities who have publicly supported Donald TrumpThe 50 best-selling music artists of all timeThe Air Force's 'rods from god' could hit with the force of a nuclear weapon — with no falloutSEE ALSO: Germany's fighter jets may not be fit for NATO service — and it's the latest setback in a wider problem

Britain's Foreign Office deleted a tweet accusing Russia of poisoning Sergei Skripal after accidentally overstating its case

REUTERS/Peter Nicholls The UK Foreign Office cited military scientists in tweets last month directly linking the attack to Russia. However, officials later realised they had overstated their case, and that it was intelligence rather than science pointing to Russia. They deleted the tweet, to the delight of Moscow, which has been trying to undermine the UK's accusations against it. Britain says it still believes that Russia is to blame. But the retraction is an embarrassment when the UK wants to project certainty. Britain's Foreign Office quietly deleted a tweet accusing Russia of manufacturing the poisoning ex-spy Sergei Skripal. A March 22 tweet claimed that chemical weapons experts at Porton Down had determined that the poison used on Skripal in Salisbury weeks before had been made in Russia.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Here's why the death penalty and longer prison sentences don't really deter crimeSee Also:Russia is pushing these 14 mutually contradictory theories to claim they weren't behind the nerve agent attackThere's a huge caveat in the US' expulsion of 60 Russian diplomatsRussia is expelling another 50 British diplomats in row over Sergei Skripal poisoningSEE ALSO: Russia is pushing these 14 mutually contradictory theories to claim they weren't behind the nerve agent attack
