I think a microwaved, reheated burger is probably not going to compare favorably to a freshly-cooked burger. With that said, I think the main thing for the pre-cooking is that it would need to be start off a little undercooked, otherwise the heating process is going to result in it being overcooked (since you're saying you're looking for some pink in the ...

Joe is essentially right. Bubbles form in a liquid at what are called nucleation sites - small irregularies in the container or in the liquid itself. If you look at the bottom of some beer glasses, there are little nodules (often in the shape of the brewer's logo) that nucleate bubbles of the CO2 that's dissolved in the beer. Much the same occurs with ...

Normally you don't put metal object in a microwave because it can make sparks and ruin the object, the microwave, and be potentially hazardous (though pretty nice, check https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_yg5eKjA4U for example). Plastic doesn't absorb as much heat when metal does (induction phenomenom), so local heat started melting the plastic. As with any ...

To heat water quickly and to thaw ice quickly requires microwaves of different frequencies. Ovens generate microwaves at a single frequency, so if it's good at the former, it'll be poor(er) at the latter. I never use the microwave to defrost stuff. In fact, the only difference between 'full' and 'defrost' is that, on the former setting, microwaves are ...

By the late 1990s, most microwaves had turn-tables in them. This was to prevent standing waves from heating up specific points within the oven, while ignoring others. It's better than nothing, but it's still not perfect. There's a newer system in some models where the cylcotron itself moves, so that the food can remain stationary, and they can better ...
