    Jacob's Creek run through an Israeli Sodastream. The horror.
    I'm sorry. I boycott all that kind of stuff. That's sparkling white wine that Palestinians should be able to enjoy instead.

    How powerful is the Microwave ?

    you can potentially cook a steak in a microwave, depending on power
    Please don't cook a steak in the microwave

    Why not ?

    I've never done it personally, but I used to work in a kitchen and the head chef said he had cooked a steak a few time in their microwaves.

    Eggs are pretty good in a microwave - just don't overcook and avoid explosions: http://www.buzzfeed.com/arielknutson...in-a-microwave

    For the toaster, you can stuff pitta breads with fillings (ham, cheese salad, whatever) and toast them to make a mini toastie.

    If you have the right plastic platey thingy, you can cook crispy bacon in a microwave. You can also cook pasta in a microwave spaghetti cooker thing. Cook a jar of instant pasta sauce in its glass jar, crumble the bacon into the sauce and pour over the spaghetti. You can also do toasted sandwiches in a toaster with one of those teflon lined envelopes gizmos.

    Yes, I know too much about niche cooking utensils. I also know you can get a lot of them from the Brighton branch of Homesense, next to the big clock. Not far to go.

    And very large bags of herbs and spices for £1 from Tiger, just down the road, along with a fine range of spice jars for 50p to put them in. I highly recommend the lemon flavoured black pepper to cover up any, shall we say, idiosyncrasies of flavour in your experiments... (I had such a wonderful time shopping in Brighton at half term....)

    Poached eggs with french toast.

    Poached eggs:

    Small bowl. Spoonful of water. Crack eggs in (one at a time) and prick yolk. Give it 30 seconds at full power. Check, and then give another 15s until whites are done.


    French toast:

    Lightly toast a slice. Remove, and using a big ol' knife, cut off the crusts and then carefully split the toast laterally into two halves. You should have two pieces with one soft side and one toasted side. Cut into triangles and microwave for 60s. Should curl and crisp into French toasts.

    You sir have just revolutionized the use of my microwave.

    +1.

    Hi guys,

    In the TSR Towers we have a nice big microwave and a large fridge to keep food in. I've been thinking - what is the nicest food I can prepare over lunch! I want to make a dish that will dazzle my co-workers!

    The rules are:
    I can buy ANY food to start with, but the food can't be pre-cooked (no microwavable burgers, that's cheating!)

    The food must be able to be prepared in an hour (I can leave stuff to set over night though!)

    Preliminary examples
    -Scrambled eggs +toast
    -Chocolate cake in a cup? thanks Shooks
    -Various salads
    -Large subs i.e. tuna and cucumber sub

    quote list






    Similar to Clip's poached egg (and probably nowhere near as nice but it's still easy)

    I used to get two eggs, mix them, put them in the microwave for 1:30... Thinking back it really wasn't that nice but it's just so easy so I did it anyway. Found the method on Google and apparently quite popular though so perhaps it's just me
