    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 :a-:

    Microwaves love to hang onto a good stink. It will stink for weeks! I burnt chocolate sponge cake in my office microwave, it stunk out the office, corridor and for about 2 weeks after, you could smell it every time you opened the microwave. Persistant cooking of Tuscan bean soup has eventually got rid of the stink :p

    Try half a lemon in the microwave (cook it ) try 30 seconds or 1 minute

    A bit more acceptable odour

    I've not seen the potato effort but I have seen a towel burning, like, with actual flames. in a washing machine full of water. That was pretty surreal, I can tell you.

    My incredibly intelligent son decided it would be a good idea to put coal in the microwave one day!!! Long story but he ended up in alot of trouble. Not for doing that but for lying about it.
