  1. A GLOBAL knife? Fine cutting skills? You sir are surprising your viewers more and more. You´d rock the culinary world of many YouTube culinary channel viewers if you decide to make more "tea in cooking" videos!

  2. You know Don, I actually used to like you ….. but now that you made a vegan recipe, I must tell you, that I love you.

  3. Don are you going to make me download all of those apps when I only have YT and FB? Twitter is so annoying! My phone goes off every 30 seconds! Just don't get snapchat because I have no clue how to use it.

  4. Haha Don you're the best ! Ps : Watch my Mapo Tofu video and check the chinese comments on it 😎 ( pumped that you rated it so high 👍)
