This week on Cooking Issues, Dave Arnold and Nastassia Lopez take on listener questions of all sorts - from low-temperature cooking, to building a homemade circulator, to knife sharpening. What types of pumps are suitable for a good circulator? What is the best way to soak a liver? And what do Hot Pockets have to do with this week's Cooking Issues? Tune in to find out!

"Here's the deal: most of the cooking techniques for offal are made to get rid of residual blood, or to get rid of the off-flavors because they tend to have a lot of bacteria and a lot of fat...If you soak in milk, it's water and fat, so it would draw out off-flavors." -- Dave Arnold on Cooking Issues
