So, you're ready to cook some food.

You go to the freezer and pull out your favorite frozen snack/dinner/whatever, and usually there are two sets of directions.

One for Conventional overs, which makes the food taste ten times better, but also takes ten times longer.

One for the Microwave Oven. This method will get your food done in minutes, however, the food is going to be chewy and taste much worse than had you cooked it in the conventional oven.

Sacrifice taste for speed, or sacrifice speed for taste?

About 99% of the time it's going in the oven. If it's a hot pocket, then microwave.

Oven. I got rid of the OTR MW and put in a range hood. Then I bought a tiny ass $35 MW since it rarely gets used.

Frozen prepared food will always taste terrible. I'll go with convenience.

Toaster oven.  Much faster than a conventional oven and works great for most frozen dinner type foods.

Even better, convection toaster oven.
I do not use microwave oven at all, except for heating water and popcorn.

Mainly the oven, only some foods can be done in the MW and taste good.

If it's something with both kinds of instructs, it's probably crap food, I'm drunk and don't care.  ergo: nuke it.

The only thing like that in my freezer is pizza rolls, and the correct answer in that case is option C: Deep Fryer.

Why would you urinate on your food or in your toaster oven?

I always take frozen food and microwave it until its warm, meanwhile the oven is preheating to 500. Then i put the now almost cooked food in oven and finish it so it gets crunchy. Cuts cooking time in half easily.

I prefer to use the conventional oven; the only time I would microwave something instead is if I was working with limited time.

If it doesn't have a preset button on the microwave I don't eat it.

I go outside and cut down some tree, then build a clay oven, start a fire with a bow...



Of course the microwave... wtf



If I have enough time to cook something it's not coming out of the freezer.

As a rule, I don't eat things that actually have microwave directions on the package...or any directions, for that matter.
