Serious Eats: Talk
I wish to be the boss of the office microwave.
No, I don't want to be the only one who uses it. Nor to I wish to make (if nuking even counts as making) everyone's lunch.
No, what I want is the power to say what can and cannot be nuked. F'rinstance: I happen to love curries. So nuke away, the only drawback is my lunch may not seem as yummy anymore, now that I'm thinking of curry.
Not so good? The damn fish that one co-worker has every day. Nearly every day. Frozen fish filets, and it never smells fresh. I have been told that flash frozen on a processing ship makes for really fresh fish. Not what he gets. Or maybe microwaving makes it seem - or at least smell - like way past best before date fish.
