Well does anything turn out better from the microwave compared to the oven/stove?

Eggs.

I break open eggs and scramble them in a cereal bowl,
and cook them for 30-60 seconds and plop them out onto a toasted english muffin with bacon and cheese.
No clean-up.
Breakfast in about 60 seconds.


Oh yeah, pre-cooked bacon in the microwave is better than stove fried raw bacon, IMO.
Except thick sliced bacon, which is best of all.

microwave ovens can thaw out frozen meats by setting the power to 50% or less...

Hot Dogs.

Remember when microwaves didn't exist? Unless you had a steamer, you couldn't make a hot dog at home like you could get at the ballpark. Now, you just stick a hot dog in a bun, nuke it for 25 seconds, and yummmmmm.

before microwaves I use to have an old gas stove and I just heated my hot dogs up on a fork over the open flame, also worked great for roasting marsh mellows.

hot dogs heated up in a frying pan are also good.

But the bun doesn't get all hot and squishy.

Toasted buns aren't the same.

I remember this hot dog cooker we had when I was a kid. Presto instant hot dogger or something similar. You could cook about five dogs at once. Prongs went in either end of the dog. You plugged the thing in and it just passed electricity through the hot dogs, using their electrical resistance to generate heat and cook the dogs. Shock dogs had an interesting flavor, but it was cool watching them get electrocuted and cook.

I've got one just like that except mine has a cartoon Dachshund with "Hot Dogger" spelled out as his body. Wasn't sure if the "interesting" flavor was standard or if the one I have was messed up.

I prefer bacon cooked in the microwave.

I'll second bacon. Most of the grease gets absorbed by the paper towels.

another way I use to eat hot dogs is to wrap them in a "Pillsbury cresent roll" and bake them, then they would have a fresh warm cresent roll bun cooked around the hot dog

+1. Microwaved scrambled eggs are great!!! No grease if you use PAM cooking spray, they puff up like a rat on DECON.

Yes, but only because you can fix it quicker. It doesn't actually taste better - only convenient.

We got one of the shock dog cookers for a present. Used it one time and then got rid of it because of the "interesting" flavor. It reminded me of someone being executed in an electric chair.

Rice in a microwave rice cooker. It's not necessarily better, but it's perfect every time if I follow instructions. It's alot better than instant rice and cooked in about the same time and much, much cheaper too.

try frying your hot dogs in a pan with a little vegtable oil...much better results than from a microwave
Link Posted: 8/28/2004 4:58:00 PM EST
Anything tastes just "ok" as long as you don't have some asshole telling you that the microwave is giving you "radiation" or that you just killed all the nutrients in the thing you just cooked and it's no good to eat and is the cause of all harm come to mankind.
Link Posted: 8/28/2004 5:05:01 PM EST
M&M's are the best in the microwave. Pour about 100 or so into a small porecelin type bowl and set the timer on a minute or so. Check and move them around with your hand at about the 30 second mark then ever 10 seconds after that. This will get them all heated up evenly, and will leave the shell crunchy while the insides of the M&M are melted. Complete with a glass of milk.

I agree with the guys who say that bacon is good in the nuke, but I think sandwich meats are even better. Thick sliced ham cooked until it's crisp around the edges gives the bacon flavor but is leaner and is more filling. Bologna works well too. Anybody who's had fried bologna knows what I'm talking about, but in the nuke it isn't as greasy.

I do it in Corningware. Boil 4cups of water on high, add 2 cups of rice (I prefer Mahatma rice when I can get it), salt, a little butter if desired, cover and microwave on med-low (power=4) for 16 min 30 secs. Perfect rice every time.
