Compact kitchen appliances: what makes them hot? Small heating units that do big things in a little way are perfect for those who don't have enough counter space or storage room in their kitchen. Who are the target customers? Smaller households, and these are growing in number every year. They are the parents that have moved from a large house to a town home. The children are off to college and they find that a smaller space is much more convenient for their new life style.

I wouldn't exactly lump the community of Hidden Hills in with the rest of the Valley ("Provence in the Valley," by Barbara Thornburg, Style, July 2). I can do without the 10,000-square-foot house and all the energy it takes to heat, cool and maintain it, the built-in outdoor pizza oven and the private chef. Instead I will do my best to reduce my energy consumption, turn my thermostat down and fire up the grill in the backyard of my home. Get real. Carey Okrand Via the Internet

One dollar. Can it buy you lunch? It seems unlikely, especially now that it costs as much as $7 for a cup of coffee at Starbucks . Unlikely -- yes. Impossible -- maybe not. Sipan Bakery in Glendale makes a respectable lahmajun , a.k.a. Armenian "pizza," smeared with ground beef, tomatoes, parsley and garlic. But it's Saipan's concoction called muhammarajun , the same dough topped with pomegranate-walnut dip muhammara before it goes into the oven, that's the unique standout.

A disadvantage of real estate agents keeping themselves in the public eye ("Use Me! Try Me! No, Me," by Julie Tamaki and Sue McAllister, Nov. 28) has to do with littering and causing a nuisance. Weekly, our front steps are littered with fliers reminding us of agents' presence in the community. We receive postcards in the mail twice, if not three times, a week braying, "Another sold!" We can live without the scratch pads, holiday cards, refrigerator magnets and oven mitts they send us. This practice has irritated us so much that we will never refer any potential clients to those Realtors.

This is the bird everyone has been talking about. Inspired by the famous roast chicken by Judy Rodgers, chef at San Francisco's beloved Zuni Café, it's as simple as can be. No more pale, under-seasoned birds. No more finding room in the refrigerator for huge pails of brine. Salt it, bag it and forget it (well, give it a rub once a day just to be sure the salt is evenly distributed). The resulting turkey is moist, gloriously browned and perfectly seasoned all the way to the bone. Begin the brining the Sunday evening before Thanksgiving and give it several hours in the refrigerator uncovered at the end to thoroughly dry the skin.
