    anyone ever set fire to a potato in the microwave?

    came home today to a stink of burning in the house.

    Apparently youngest daughter (18) put her baked spud in for the normal 12 minutes in the new microwave (similar power) and the plastic container we use for stopping the splashes has a burnt hole in in and the plate is covered in burnt stuff. Que!?

    I'm 18 too and I have set rice on fire before.

    Put some rice in the microwave, put it on for 20 minutes instead of 2, went upstairs and forgot about them and came down to a kitchen full of smoke and a black blob of rice in the microwave.

    I have also burnt caramel, saved it then put it over my shortbread and proceeded to put the baking tray on top of the switched on hob.

    I'm moving to Aberdeen this year for uni, I have no clue how I am going to not kill myself.

    Some nice designs on the burnt bit, get in a bit closer and you could have a lovely abstract
