Double Dipping Bates

"I'm really finicky about cooking. I like it to be really nice, neat, and you know, sanitary."

-Erin Paine 

We're throwing it back almost four years with this lighthearted video. While baking with Carson and her youngest sisters, Erin reveals two Bates family members who are guilty of double dipping. One is a young child, and the other is very much an adult. Any guesses?

  1. Zach is probably the adult double dipper. He has very poor table manners. Double dipping is revolting!

  2. My husband and I double-dip if it’s just us eating together and neither of us are sick. But I would recommend looking into the Mythbuster’s episode where they cover double-dipping! Here is a small synopsis I found about it online:

    “ Examining the results, the MythBusters found that double dipping produced less microbes than putting all the dip in your mouth. Also, the amount of microbes present after double dipping was negligible compared to the amount found in regular dip.”

  3. I think it goes along with his personality. He is so loving, kind,and just seems to cherish time with his family. It is a bad habit, but my brother-in-law does it too, and he is a lot like Zach. He feels so at ease with family, he just digs right in. I don't like double dipping, but I would prefer to spend time with loving people like Zach and my brother-in-law, even with this bad habit. ;-)

  4. It drives me nuts when people eat with their mouths open or smack their lips when eating or double dipping & crunching loud with mouth open or licking their fingers & yes i agree its zach with double dipping he eats like a pig lots & lots of food he has a big appetite but he's healthy & probably works up an appetite working with his dads tree company & he is honest he says all time he loves I love how Erin or alyssa always let there kids help in kitchen & teach them i love watching there you tube videos i miss the show when its not on its a great family show to watch

  5. Zach is so rude to Erin. She's trying to get him to wash his hands, but he doesn't.

  6. How did Zach get involved?

    1. Erin says in her video that carson probably got the double dipping ideal from his uncle Zach when she catches carson doing it love the bates family they are so entertaining & funny & honest

  7. Erin--Just say to your brother, "Wash your hands before touching the food I spent hours preparing."

  8. I really like Zach but what he did to the food is gross, dangerous, and disrespectful. I would have expected that behavior from a two year old.
