Venting your microwave meal.

Pretty much every microwave frozen meal I have says, "Slit the top film with a knife to vent." I look at it and then peel up the corner. I'm not going to get a knife out for that.

Is there a difference between peeling up the corner and slitting with a knife? Am I losing 20 or 30 International Flavor Units (IFUs - I just made that up) by not slitting it with a knife? It's so much easier to just peel the corner that I don't know why they don't just tell me to peel the corner. Do they perhaps have a partnership with the Big Knife companies?

Poll forthcoming.

Sometimes you shouldn't take those directions too explicitly. When I was in college, I made a batch of brownies from a box mix. The box instructions said to "mix by hand" so I rolled up my sleeves, washed my hands and started mixing. How was I supposed to know that "mix by hand" really means "mix with a utensil but don't use an electric mixer"?

My answer to the poll question is that I usually peel.

Ugh. I've shied away from the cheap microwave meals (especially the non-frozen ones) ever since I ate these things for lunch for almost an entire week at a new job:



I was crapping out lightly colored ooze (about the same as the gravy in that picture) for a few days, even after I stopped eating them. I thought my digestive system had broken or something.

Some of the items in a microwave meal are designed to lose moisture at a, more or less, specific rate. By peeling the corner you alter the rate from that which the manufacturer prefers to ensure the highest possible quality. You may find that you enjoy the items more or less by changing the "cooking" process. I prefer drier vegetables for instance. Your mileage may vary.

It's only safe if you fashion a mini disco ball out of it first and hang it from the interior top (ceiling) of the microwave. This is to deflect the radiation and prevent an electrical fire.
