Watch Chefs Taste Microwaved Dinners For The First Time

Chefs-Microwave-Dinner

To be a decent chef, you kinda have to have a halfway decent palette. This means you can’t always be eating microwaved dinners at home. Y’know, the ones you find in the frozen foods section of your supermarket.

The folks over at Facts gathered a few seasoned chefs and sat them down to try various microwaved dinners.

Some of the items include Irish beef dinner, a microwavable burger, vegetable spaghetti and sticky toffee pudding.

Watch as they taste and react to the frozen and reheated meals.

Microwave Hack Turns Corn On The Cob To Popcorn On The Cob [WATCH]

Popcorn-Cob

A nice piece of corn on the cob can be one of the simplest, most delicious pleasures to ever hit the kitchen table. So what if you turn that into popcorn on the cob?

Produce supplier Farmhouse Delivery created a video demonstrating how you can turn your ordinary corn on the cob into its final form. All you need is some butter, two brown bags and a microwave.

Remove the silks from your piece of corn and lather it in butter. Then, place the corn in a brown paper bag and close it tightly. Throw it in the open end of the second bag so that both bottom ends are facing separate directions.

Finally, pop it in the microwave at 50-75 percent power for 4 minutes. Might be some trial and error depending on your microwave.

Check out the video below the next time you want to change up your corning experience.

How To Magically Make Potato Chips In The Microwave

Regular potato chips just not doing it for you lately? Give your taste buds a break from basic spuds and make your own. Even better, you can easily prepare them in a microwave!

Grab a potato (or potatoes) of any size, wash, and slice up into extremely thin slices over a cutting board–the thinner the chip, the better it will cook. After you’ve chopped up the entirety of the potato, pat down the slices with a napkin or paper towel until they’re no longer damp. Then, toss them all onto a microwave-safe dish.

To spice things up, sprinkle seasoning, salt, or perhaps, seasoned salt, over the chips before popping the plate into the microwave for three to five minutes. You also avoid the entire frying portion typically involved with creating crunchy chips (yes, they get crunchy in the microwave!).

See? Those extra few minutes of you not being a couch potato will leave both you and tummy satisfied.

Snarky Indiana Brewhouse Serves ‘Microwaved to Perfection’ Hot Dogs To Meet New Liquor Laws

drunk-people

In business, it’s important to stick to what you’re good at. Take it from Indiana’s Bank Street Brewhouse who, despite the proliferation elsewhere of haughty hipster gastropubs, knew food simply wasn’t its strong suit. But when a new statute came into effect requiring that all alcohol-serving establishments also serve food, rather than shutter the business, Bank Street decided it would oblige, but in the absolute most hilarious, zero-fucks-given way possible.

The following image was posted to reddit earlier this week depicting Bank Street’s special “Indiana Statutory Compliance Restaurant Menu,” which, unlike your typical sriracha aioli sliders and brussels sprouts, consisted of such delicacies as “Our Famous Hotdog Sandwich” — “microwaved to perfection, including both weenie and bun, sans condiments,” or “Chef Campbell’s Soup of the Day,” which kindly offers your choice of “whichever can is on top of the stack.”

Bank Street did decide to keep the fancy gastropub up-pricing though; both those exquisite, hand-curated entrees cost $10. Probably still cheaper than a mixed drink though.

This USB Powered Microwave Will Heat Up Your Sad Desk Lunch

1308531272747390-620x

Sad desk lunchers, there is a ray of sunshine on the horizon. Gone are the days of cold leftovers, soggy sandwiches, and soup heated up in the company microwave that’s only lukewarm because Jane from the cubicle next door kept giving you the stink-eye. Luckily, someone dreamed up a desktop microwave, and we need one ASAP.

Designed by Steve Gates, a London-based designer, the “Brainwave” is intended to help people focus on their work by eliminating a trip to the company mess hall. But for those of us who simply want a hot meal, it’s a great, compact way to heat up your leftovers.

Even better, the microwave is powered through a USB, so all you have to do is plug in to your computer, grab a napkin and get ready to chow down. The microwave recognizes the size of a frozen meal placed inside, and will heat it at the right level for the appropriate time. At the moment, the Brainwave is still in its ambiguous concept phase. No word yet on whether you can put a sandwich, some soup, or mom’s lasagna in there, but we’re definitely willing to give it a try.

Microwave S’mores Maker Cooks Marshmallows Evenly, Keeps Them from Exploding

41VC3yFo-KL

S’mores are great and all, but sometimes we have to go through too much trouble just to get one. Fires are too hot, too many mosquitos, and worst of all, the s’mores dropped into the ashes of a campfire are all some of the hurdles an avid s’mores maker must overcome to get the treat of their dreams.

Which is why this s’mores maker, which works in your microwave, is pretty much the laziest coolest invention ever. It works by using steam to heat the marshmallows, chocolate, and graham crackers evenly, with arm-like attachments to keep your marshmallows from expanding (and exploding).

Even better, the machine is dishwasher safe, which means no sticky dishes or sticks to clean. Just maybe some sticky hands to wash, but that’s part of the fun of s’mores in the summer, is it not?
