Do People Really use Hotel Irons to Cook Food?
That's just gross and I'd hate to be the poor slug wanting to use the iron for what it's intended, ironing clothes after having food on the surface. Yuk. This article belongs in The Onion.
there was an episode of cut throat kitchen recently on. One of the chefs had to cook a panini with an iron. They still used a stove to heat the iron but it was a pit of a mess. The food caught on fire that was stuck to the iron. They had to keep covering it in tin foil. I would think a really basic cooking item that doesn't melt like a hot dog might work, but it probably wouldn't be a good idea to get to exotic with that.
I knew one person who used to use them to iron 'their' hair!
Actually I haven't even considered to "cook" food with an iron, it's amazing how ingenious some people are.
Indeed, a hot dog might work and as in the article pizza does too, but as you said, don't get too exotic with the iron. I doubt that Michelin would be happy.
As a hair straightener, that's ingenious too, haven't thought of that, but I haven't the hair for that either.
Let's only hope you didn't mean some "other" hair on "their" body.
I have heard tales of college students using it for grilled cheese sammiches!
My wife carries a rice cooker, to heat her water,
When we were in school, we used an immersion element to heat the soup, and heat water..sure glad those days are over...
Never ever used an iron...to heat food, but have heard of using it to straighten hair..I would prefer a Sebastian Flat Iron, when my wife has long hair..,
It's economical and ingenious, that's for sure. I'm only worried about people who use the iron for the intended purpose after all the "other" uses.
Same people straight even newspapers out, or straighten the table table linen. This happens in some good hotels or good restaurants. Nothing really wrong with it, as long they don't "cook" food with the iron.
yup, as long as they leave the iron on it's original, clean condition after use
Good luck with that one!
Is that like tray tables up and seat backs returned to their upright position?

More like cleaning up outside the bar after someone "tosses their cookies"!
Sometimes we criticize hotels and airlines ( add rental cars) because of the less than pristine condition they are presented to us in (even after cleaning) but a amazingly high percentage of travelers are just plain classless pigs who seem to believe that because they have paid for the a space they can use it just like they obviously live at home.
I am often disgusted to the see the amount of trash left on aircraft seats as I deplane.
I have used an iron to make coffee
if I am travelling to 3rd world countries, I have been known to pack my Bialetti espresso maker + ground coffee + raw sugar
my day gets off to bad start with instant coffee or worse
I've not seen how coffee is made using an iron.. you have to let us in on that...
you flip the iron over, turn it on high, wedge it between something while trying to keep it level
it takes awhile to get brewing
that's where a youtube demo video comes in
