1. I have to admit that I don't know the answer to this question. At first I figured that it was a metric thing; but 15 oz is .43 kg and 16 is .45, so that can't be it. It may be that your assumption is incorrect, though; Google gives more results for the exact phrase "16 oz. ricotta" than for "15 oz. ricotta." Maybe certain brands that are common in certain areas go for one or the other.I also don't know why the usual size for canned tomatoes seems to be 14 and 28 oz. Mysterious.

  2. By the way, you are strangely the only one to use the "answer this please durlando" tag. I am grateful that the many others who are dying to use it are so considerate of my time.

  3. I try to use it sparingly, knowing that when it is invoked you are obligated to drop whatever you are doing and come to my aid.
