Iloved Regina Schrambling's story about immersion blenders ["Why Did the Hard Roll Run for Its Life?" April 25] and am inspired to obtain one. I was also enchanted by her reference to her persevering Osterizer. Mine was a wedding present in 1958, and it's still working. KIT DREYFUSS Santa Monica

Kids, do not try this at home: Scientists have found that they can create high-quality graphene sheets using a kitchen blender and ordinary dishwasher detergent. The findings, published in the journal Nature Materials, outline a fresh way to create large amounts of this remarkable material - which could speed up the process toward putting them into future computers , smart coatings and solar cells. Graphene is a two-dimensional lattice of hexagons made up of graphite, the most stable form of carbon under standard conditions.

Miley Cyrus hightailed it to the emergency room Monday evening for a little repair work on her left hand, which had been wounded in battle -- apparently with a kitchen appliance. Her ER trip followed after a mishap at her Toluca Lake home, according to TMZ , which said Miley's mom, grandma and beau Liam Hemsworth all went along for the ride. "I'm all stitched up & have on a splint so I'm good. As you can tell by my expression [in pictures taken by a paparazzo], didn't feel so good.

A hand-held smoker that looks like a toy pistol, a blender that heats or cools while it whizzes your soup or smoothie, professional immersion blenders, dehydrators, whipping siphons, induction burners, sous-vide machines and vacuum sealers. As mainstream retailers such as Sur La Table and Williams-Sonoma introduce tools not so long ago used by only the most adventurous professional chefs, it could be a bonanza holiday for kitchen geeks. Grant Achatz, the chef of Alinea in Chicago who recently was in Los Angeles for an event, points to one of his immersion circulators, a device used for sous-vide ?

One of the jewels among the local music venues for both the performer and the audience was missing from Heidi Siegmund Cuda's Calendar Weekend cover story ("Absolute Music," Aug. 27). It is the Jazz Bakery in the Helms Bakery complex. Here is a venue with a program aimed completely at providing the best environment for the artists and customers. No smoking, no blenders in the background or waiters disrupting your attention, just comfortable concert-type seating in an intimate room.

An Orange County businessman who was prohibited from leaving China for nearly two weeks because of a contract dispute with a Chinese supplier has negotiated a settlement and returned to the United States. Brian Horowitz, 46, of Mission Viejo, said Chinese government officials refused to let him leave the country until he paid the Chinese firm $250,000 to resolve a civil lawsuit the company had filed against him. He said he arrived home Jan. 18 after his wife wired the funds to China.

A businessman from Orange County said Chinese government officials have prohibited him from leaving China for the last four days, saying he must resolve a contract dispute with a Chinese supplier before they will let him return to the United States. Brian Horowitz of Mission Viejo said he was detained at Shanghai Pudong International Airport on Thursday and told that he couldn't board an American Airlines flight to Chicago because of a lawsuit he says he knew nothing about. Horowitz, 46, said he called a judge at the direction of Chinese immigration officials and was told he would need to settle the case, filed by an exporting company in the city of Fuzhou, before he would be allowed to fly home.

Summertime -- and that means picnics and barbecues, at the park, beach or the mountains. But just because you are outdoors communing with the animals doesn't mean you have to leave civilization -- and smoothies or daiquiris -- behind. Not when you have a portable blender for those drinks. We tested four blenders designed to take on the road. Our drink of choice was a simple smoothie: a dollop of yogurt, some frozen blueberries and mango chunks blended with ice.

Neighbors crowded around the cardboard box containing a color television, one of dozens recently distributed in this community of mud-floored huts 25 miles from the bustling city of Chennai. There's only one problem: Nobody can use them. "The ruling party said they'd give us TVs if we elected them, but what use are they?" said V. Amutha, 32, dressed in a pink sari. "We're without electricity, which we've been awaiting for the past 40 years. " Political parties and independent candidates are promising freebies galore — gifts as diverse as blenders, laptops and sheep — if they win in Wednesday's assembly elections here in Tamil Nadu state.

EATING homemade mayonnaise is the kind of luxurious pleasure -- like eating chocolate in the bath -- that shouldn't require apology. Rich yet subtle in flavor, with a pillowy texture, homemade mayo is nothing like the pale, cloying stuff you get out of a jar. It dresses up too. Spiked with chiles or shot with saffron, mayonnaise is the perfect secret weapon for a tapas party. Mayonnaise is a notoriously breakable emulsion, or combination of two liquids (such as oil and water)
