comment Why microwaves do not kill harmful bacteria as well as boiling?
@Jefromi, size matters, try cutting e.g. cheese in 0.5cm, 1cm, 2cm and 4cm pieces and heat in micro, they will heat differently.

comment What determines the 'saltiness' of salt?
Weight the teas spoons of each salt,that should help you realize the difference. As SAJ14SAJ says below salt is salt.

comment Is there additional risk in cooking meat sous-vide from frozen?
@soegaard Yes maybe, but then consider what MandoMando said, think in general it does not make much difference. If you thaw a hole cow it does matter, but for 'small' things that can be thawed in a few hours in a sous vide cooker it should not matter much.

comment Is it wise to use an aluminum foil in the microwave? Is there a substitute for the aluminum foil?
Because it is not as bad as you think. Why would USDA even say what they say? You could accuse them for being overly cautious, but the opposite?? Really. Think about it, Gas is dangerous, it explodes, the gas is dangerous to breath, why would anyone ever want to cook with it? Deep frying???? Caramel? All very dangerous, I say using foil in a microwave is safer than deep frying!
