    I don't wash chicken, but pork, then pat it dry.

    Hmm interesting. Yes, I occasionally wash poultry before cooking (generally whole birds, not pieces) but have no rationale for that aside from cookbooks telling me to do it or my Mom advocating it.

    I would have liked that page to explain more about why you shouldn't wash chicken. The only "why" in there is because water droplets can spread the bacteria around. Like, show a video of the water droplets landing all over the place to illustrate the point, show test results of surface bacterial contamination even when you think you're being sanitary, stuff like that.

    No one likes to be told "don't do X" without the WHY or proof of the WHY. It's just as bad as doing something without knowing WHY, really.

    Honestly, what a strange habit. Washing eggs I could kind of understand, but this is just silly. Do people also wash their steaks?
    No, that's not what it is. I know what you are talking about and this is something different.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    It's all about water droplets. Think of, for example, a cold. Transmitted by water droplets. It survives days and proliferates after leaving the source. No matter how clean you think you are usually you end up getting sick eventually.

    The chicken when hit by the water splashes. .. you don't notice the drops on the counter, or on your sponge, you miss a spot in the sink or on the utensil in the sink with it. The water helps the bacteria versus stopping it and sanitizing it like people think. If you're a slightly ocd mom cleaning type you might not worry... but for most of us we don't clean things to restaurant standards, and washing the chicken is inviting a higher risk of infection. And a particularly bad infection too.

    I have no idea what you're talking about here... slimy chicken means it's turning, and chicken breast is naturally slippery because the fat hangs out around it vs inside the meat because it's a leaner cut. The fats and juices gel up when cold but those are natural p parts of the chicken.

    I don't wash chicken, but when I handle it, I treat that shit like it's radioactive material.

    ^ pretty much this. Very paranoid about how it has been handled previously. I also don't like seeing that meat liquid that forms in those dishes that hold the meat.
