I took a little part of everyday life and added it to the Sonic Dictionary. This is the sound of butter being freshly tossed onto a hot stove in a red skillet. Could you tell it was butter or does it sound like something else to you?

This is a VULCAN 60W X 33D X 36H flat top grill at O'Charley's restaurant. Cooking on the grill is two small chicken cutlets. You can hear the sound of the metal spatula hitting the grill as the cook checks the chicken. You can hear the sizzle change as the cook flips the chicken cutlet. You may also hear some of the cooks and waiters talking in the background. Recorded on a Zoom H1 Handy Recorder.
