    I just got a lovely wake up call from young Jada who managed to fill the house with smoke, cooking a pack of 15 minute Risotto in the microwave, setting all the smoke alarms off and making quite an impressive little fire in my beloved microwave.

    Having said that, the revolting brown sludge this microwave has produced from the instant risotto is quite impressive, it’s like spray-tan, it leaves a permanent brown residue on everything.

    I do have a couple of 321 Speedmaster dials floating around and I’m quite tempted to give them a dip in this somewhat melted Tupperware container or brown sludge just to see if I can improve them as I think she may have actually cracked it and figured out how the Rolex dealers have been making everything from Patrizi Daytonas to chocolate 1675s all these years.

    "No artificial colours" ....... Stated on the package. That makes the Dials all original. Genius !

    Exactly, if it’s good enough for Continental, it’s good enough for Phillips

    Reminds me of when one my wife’s co workers hit an extra zero on the microwave and the fire department was summoned to the place of employment. The nickname Hot-Pockets was appropriate.
