First things first - if it weren't for a microwave and the food industry it supports, I would have starved or become a vegan years ago.
Having said that - how is it possible that 2 minutes can scald the outer edges of a mashed potato and gravy cup of heaven while leaving the inside a chilled brick while 20 seconds on a cookie can make the outer ring cooler than room tempurature but that middle chocolate chip worthy of Italian Mafia Torture the way it burns your unsuspecting tongue?
Love technology but... its weird. Thats all I'm sayin. Back me up. Or tell me what physical property of "warm it up all the way around and inside and out at the same time" I am missing.
