I like to call her Microwave.
You see since I moved in I haven't used Microwave or even opened her and honestly now I'm a little afraid to see what is inside her cold white exterior. I have just been making do with the good old stove to heat things up. Water just seems to taste better when heated on the stove, spaghetti is a no brainer, and since it is a gas stove I can even use it to toast my bagels (carefully, of course). The only issue I have run into is when trying to melt cheese. You know the super convenient cheese that comes pre-shredded in little bags at the grocery? It is like it is specially formulated to only melt in the microwave. As a nacho aficionado, I have tried making them in my oven, which takes FOR-EV-ER, and even making my (newly) famous "Skillet Nachos".
The cheese just never seems to melt all the way.
So what do I do? Any suggestions on proper cheese melting technique sans microwave?
Also, another project to add to the list, is making some kind of Microwave Cozy (with irony, of course).
