    you've ever had?

    I don't like to waste food, and there isn't much I won't eat. My wife brought home a Lean Cuisine, lemongrass chicken. I don't think I have ever tasted something commercially made that tasted so bad.

    pit bull. just can't seem to get it to cook evenly :confused:


    seriously though...who really thinks a microwave is good for actually cooking something.

    Unless you're looking to pop some corn or heat some water in a glass or nuke a "Rel's Red Hot" burrito...those damned things are pretty much useless.

    Ever try to reheat a chunk of lasagne in one? Damned POS! The outside edges are blasting hot -- hot enough to melt the tip of plastic knife you're poking it with -- while the center still has ice crystals on it :mad:

    If you have a very nice one...you can MAYBE reheat some leftovers SORTA evenly...but even that's a stretch.

    Agreed. Microwaves are only good for popcorn.

    You guys cook all your crap at 100% power don't you? My wife hasn't figured out the microwave has different power levels either.

    Once you master that bit of knowledge, cooking evenly becomes a lot easier.

    All of them. How can anything cooked in a microwave be considered a meal?

    It's good for quick oatmeal.

    agreed, i was unaware that there was such a thing as a "good" microwave meal. i thought they were bad on purpose.

    Most microwaves don't really have different power settings, they merely cycle on and off, so while they are 'off' the food can equalize temperature more. I think new microwaves still do that, I know the older ones did...haven't tried it with mine at home...cause if I'm cooking it in the microwave then I want it hot NOW, and if the outside is smoking and the inside is ice, that's fine, they can equalize in my mouth.. :D
