Recook/recooked
« on: July 29, 2021, 06:38:51 PM »
From yesterday's OVERCOOKED puzzle:  Recook - rare; recooked - common.  Seems inconsistent to me.  I'd suggest both should be common.

You beat me to it.
Should both be common, imo.

In my talks on energy efficiency I often talk about how it takes little extra energy to batch cook.

Yes, this has been raised before. Still awaiting review.

(But surely it depends on how long you cook and recook something whether it ends up rare?)

Agree that it is inconsistent. I think both should be common, but both rare would be an improvement.
