comment Is it wise to use an aluminum foil in the microwave? Is there a substitute for the aluminum foil?
I hear ya, but it still sounds like describing "safe" ways to wash your clothes with gasoline.

comment Is it wise to use an aluminum foil in the microwave? Is there a substitute for the aluminum foil?
I'm sorry, but this sounds like horrible advice. It is "unwise." Period. Why would we recommend something that is "generally unsafe in microwaves" for an application it is entirely inappropriate for?! It's a scientific curiosity that you can make it work at all... until it doesn't. The penalty for getting it wrong is breaking the microwave (best case) or a fire in the kitchen. I suspect the voting is going for the "wow" factor, but this is not culinary advice. It's a science experiment.

comment Best way to juice a pineapple
@adamse: Meh, technically, its more likely to be called a strainer. Colanders are typically bowl-shaped and perforated. There's a bunch of gadgets/strainers specifically shaped for this sort of straining. I'd use a juicer myself but, if I am straining, this is what I have on hand.
