  • lol, just about to microwave some veggies!

    I take the lid container off and it goes in for 1 min and 30 seconds. It's a cup worth (give or take a few extra carrot slices).

    - If it's something packaged, read the instructions and put it in for 10 seconds longer.

    Don't really use it besides heating up the meals I bring from home..

  • I heat croissants and bakery kinda stuff on defrost mode so its almost like it just came out of the oven.
    Other things I do on max heat and kinda estimate how long it should be in there, usually I open and check every 30 seconds.

    Last time I followed instructions the food blew up inside the microwave and had to clean up all that shit 😑 never again.

  • If it's a microwave dinner/mac n cheese, I follow directions. If it's like a tortilla or bread, I get to know my microwave and put it on the same time every time. I don't just let things go willy nilly. I have control in the kitchen >:D Lol, jk, I will go bananas microwaving left over eggplant parm for 6 years until it's all hot.

  • I take the random approach... poke the buttons at random till the thing fires up, and check on it every twenty seconds!

  • I follow the directions if there are any. Otherwise, I just use what I think is best and check on it. If it needs to be heated more, I do so.

  • Follow directions roughly, but I take into consideration the actual watts of the microwave, and if it's old or new etc.

  • I only use the microwave to heat up butter and chocolate for cooking, or a previously cooked meal. In all cases theyre in either 20 or 30 seconds, continuing that until I've got what I want.

  • Usually if I'm reheating food I'll put it in for 1 min then give it a stir / flip then another min then check the temperature with a thermometer and carry on until it's reached a safe temperature

  • I don't own an microwave and haven't for over four years. When I did own one, pretty much all I did with it was heat up milk (for coffee) or sake. Sometimes a can of Chef Boyardee but that's about it. Everything else I make on the oven or stovetop.
