    You have to differentiate between fact and personal preference.  It may be a fact that you prefer your steak well-done, and if you do, and you say so, we must all agree that you feel that way about it.  But if you state that well-done is somehow objectively "better", then that shouldn't come under the inspection of objectivity and thus the incredulity fallacy at all.
