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.

And if every one of those knives costs 1 cent to wash, we're talking about $130 million in avoidable costs. If you want to know why we're losing ground on the Chinese, look no further than our frivolous uses of knives in venting microwave dinners.
I'll bet your microwave looks like a discarded petri dish from the CDC.

A quick rinse and wipe on the kitchen towel does the trick for me, keeps me as healthy and strong as a russian caveman.

Depends if its a plastic bag covering the entire tray like you find on some of the fancy ones (Amy's) or just a film covering the top (Lean Cuisine). The ones with the bag matter since it may not fill with steam correctly if you cut it in the wrong place.

I posted a while back that if you have a lower back tattoo, the phosphorus in the ink can interact with the microwave signals to ignite a phosphorus fire in your back.

Please spread word about this to everyone you know. I don't have children, so I want this and 'disigerent' to be my legacy.

Please spread the word. If just one young woman sprays herself with cooking spray and wraps herself in Saran Wrap, it will make me a happy man.
