Microwave - Your biggest failures using this device.
Back then, I think it was marketed as an oven replacement, with an emphasis on being able to cook food (instead of just reheating).
Keeping in mind this was a pre-Internet world, I remember being really really excited about purchasing an insatnt cake mix (that had microwave instructions), and making what would near certainly be the most amazing cake ever. Sadly, the end result was terrible, and my childhood heart was broken. The hard lesson learned was that microwaves were amazing at reheating, but sucked really badly as an oven replacement.
Just curious if anyone has any similar stories.
Did anyone here seriously try using the microwave as an oven replacement, and were they ever able to produce anything good?
