I'll kick off with Pre-order and Steam dry. When you ORDER something, you do so because it is not immediately available. You place an order for it. Pre-order hence means to place an order before the actual ordering ... a sort of giving notice that you will be ordering the item in the future. Totally unnecessary. Steam drying has become a buzz word on cookery programmes and in recipes in the past year. Please take note ... you cannot dry anything by letting it steam! Steam makes things DAMP! What they should actually be instructing is AIR-DRYING after draining potatoes etc , to let the steam escape.
