Forget the blog content ... I just wanna know how Darcie produced that without setting the kitchen on fire.

That's blacker than when you burn sugar to make caramel color!

Impressive. That could give Vantablack a run for its money.

No, I'm pretty sure Vanna White was made the old-fashioned way and nanotubes had nothing to do with it.

Let me tell you, it was grisly. If I hadn't made it in a very expensive copper-clad pot (the reason the house didn't catch fire) I would have thrown the darn thing away. I literally had to chisel my way down to the bottom of the pan. It made copious amounts of smoke but naturally the smoke detector (which goes off when searing steaks) didn't chirp until the entire kitchen was engulfed. The pan's bottom is a bit scratched up but still serviceable. It just has a few spots where things like to stick now.

What is worse, this is not the first time I've burned caramel that badly.
