I used to microwave everything too but I’ve become a hob girl now

Most things I make are one pan hob jobs. Chop up a bunch of veg, whack it in a pan, whack in some other shit. Delish

Tea after I’ve done a Dido

This pleases me. Brilliant sentence construction.

I do this.

My GF is the opposite and manages to use 19 pans to boil an egg.

Drinking some right now so not putting it in the OP is quite something.

Still find it amazing in 2019 that people still feel this way about the simple science oven…

got a microwave not that long ago after years without, and the only things i can recall using it for are ice cream (to soften it up after it’s come out the freezer), reheating leftover pizza and some of those microwaveable mini pizzas you can get. used to do Uncle Ben’s microwavable rice in the microwave (obviously) but found it’s actually nicer doing it on the hob so :man_shrugging:

I must have microwaved a heated car ice scraper at some point, I suspect.

Newman-Kwart rearrangements, mostly.

Microwaves are unfairly derided by the cooking snobs (i.e DiSers). They are actually excellent for certain functions like cooking veg. You need the right kit but I would recommend them for hassle-free veg steaming
