“Leave to stand for three to four minutes after microwaving”

  • Well, that’s what the instructions say so they probably know best
  • A minute or two is absolutely fine
  • Safety first option - will leave for five minutes or more
  • Already burning the roof of my mouth off m9

Big fan of spreading the stabs relatively evenly, don’t let any of the film feel left out, or that the air has nowhere to escape

I wrote a radio play in which one of the scenes involved piercing a microwave lasagne lid and we had a lot of fun recording someone going absolutely hell for leather on it

I just peel back a corner ready for stirring/serving and don’t bother with any of that piercing nonsense.

I like to imagine that by only piercing once, the carton puffs like a train, or spouts like a breaching whale.

Never there to enjoy the phenomenon, obvs, but I’m imagining it hard for all 25-26 minutes.

Usually just peel the corner back a bit, failing that one quick but massive stab

The feeling you get in the split second of the first pierce penetrating the film is a glimpse of heavenly bliss. That feeling is what the righteous will experience for all eternity after judgement day. And I recycle the tray and sleeve in their correct bins after consuming so that I will be one amongst their number.
