Eh, you realize if you let them not make lobster, they'd just find the next most annoying thing to make?

Doesn't lobster have a higher chance of burning than anything else, or is that a myth?

If you were playing in an appropriately awesome manner, the question of what a sim would be cooking would never come up.

I do.  I just don't use the shutup and sit down one.  So sometimes they will idle off to my (gasp) unlocked open floor plan kitchen and when they have abused the skillinator to max the cooking skill... BINGO!   Lobster thermidor.

There's an unawesome hack out there that stops all food burning. Ever since I installed it, I haven't been annoyed by Lobster or any other highly-flamable foods that sims love to make.

What exactly do you hate about Lobster? It fills hunger well, they don't take forever to eat it, and it doesn't take much longer to make than many other foods. It's much better than Turkey, at least, since Turkey seems to make sims fat very fast.

Lobster costs a princely ransom to make. Turkey only makes sims fat if you insist on feeding them when they're not hungry, and like pork chop, is highly filling, so you don't have to feed them often. Food costs money, and I hate food.

I try not to get my sims that high a level in cooking, simply because every 2 days they need to stock up on food :/

I just put them all on strict rationing and *I* decide when, and IF, they eat. Food costs money!

I heard it was a 20% failure rate.  But then again I could be lying.

This is the way I understand it:

When sims skill up to a level that allows a new food item, sims have a 20% chance of burning that new food. Once they skill up to one level above the level required to prepare that certain food, the chance goes down to 10% (unless it is the first time they are preparing that food, then it's still 20% until after they have cooked it without burning it at least once).

Since they can't learn to cook lobster thermidor until the last cooking level of the game, they will always have a 20% chance of burning it since they would need to go up another level for it to drop to 10%, which is impossible to do.

If it is only a 20% failure rate, then mine are feverishly working to get that percentage in. They are forever burning it. I try to be vigilant and head them off at the pass, but ever so often they slip by and cook/burn that blasted lobster. Of course, once burned, it still costs the same amout of money, but it doesn't have the fill-up value. It's gotten to the point where I get angry when I see them wandering by with that big package and heading to the stove. If they would make anything else, it would not annoy me as much as that very expensive, burned, bug-like creature. Even the piss-poor ones go for the lobster; they have little money, so even having lobster available to cook doesn't make sense in the first place.

Do what I do; flip the fridge towards the wall. Works like a charm, even with nannies. (Just don't forget to unflip it every now and then  Tongue)

That is why I have the simlogical fridge. I refuse to even give them a fridge if I can't find that hack. I'd rather cheat my brains out and give them the all-in-one NPC who cooks for them. It isn't actually bad cheating if you turn on the "pay NPC hourly" option, which takes out like... 10-15 dollars a hour.

Thank you Veilchen, you summed up how I feel very well.  And I've tried the other methods of turning the fridge around or the Simlogical fridge, but that really gets on my nerves too.  If that works for you that's great.  Currently I am trying out JM's idea of locking the kitchen with the APO, but the thing I don't like about it is that they get stuck in the kitchen and can't leave unless I tell them to or macrotastics tells them too.  They'll be standing there with the BUY icon flashing over their head, and they can't exit the kitchen.  Sad  Sometimes I have to unlock the kitchen when I want them to have dinner with a date, and I forget to lock it back.  So it works ok, but it's not perfect either.  Sad  The other thing that I tried was using the Simlogical hob that only has stovetop functionis.  Then they can't cool lobster, but they can't cook other things as well.  But it does work rather well.

Lock it against "autonomous". Then sims will be able to enter and leave freely under a user-priority directive like BUY, but will not be permitted to enter for an autonomous-priority action.

I agree -- as soon as they can afford it, the original fridge goes out the door, and the simlogical no-autonomy fridge goes in.  Though I play with free will on, in this one case I agree with JMP and don't want them randomly making food on their own.  I usually have the cook with the highest skill points serve food, and then put the leftovers in his/her inventory for later use.

I did that.  They still have problems with BUY, although sometimes it will finally grab them and they'll run, but other times they get stuck in there, and occasionally, if I don't catch them in time, after a while they'll get bored and cook lobster anyway.  Tongue

If they were eating by Macrotastics, they would have left to an eating surface after making their food.
