Helpful microwaving hint…

If you ever get out a cereal bar and have the sudden impulse to pop it in the microwave for a few seconds so you can have it warm, check first to see if the wrapper is made of foil.  I was already two seconds into heating one when I thought, “Wait a minute, is that…”  Then one second later, sparks flew inside the microwave.  I opened the door immediately, but the wrapper (which I’d at least had enough sense to open for venting first) was already swiss-cheesed and crumpled.  The cereal bar looked fine, but I didn’t want to take any chances with, I dunno, melted plastic getting into it (since the wrappers appear to be made of plastic and foil), so I threw that one out and got another, this time taking it out of the wrapper altogether and putting it on a napkin before heating it for about 7 seconds.  It turned out rather nicely, though it could’ve used another couple of seconds.

    Home wrecker! LOL!

    I take it there’s no warning label on the bar in question about whether or not it’s safe to nuke?

      I didn’t think to check. Like I said, it was something I did on impulse and didn’t think through first. Luckily I have quick reflexes when it comes to aborting something stupid right after I initiate it. 😉
