Remember back in the day, when microwave ovens focussed the microwaves at the center of the oven? And when you put that bowl of frozen soup in, you ended up with a little boiling pool of soup in the middle and frozen soup around the outside? Yeah, that was annoying when it was something solid you were heating and it was all uneven, but it was a damn sight better at thawing frozen soup than modern microwaves. I've had frozen soup for the last two days for lunch, and while it's delicious soup, it's really highlighting this shortfall for me.
What we need is a microwave with two different microwave channels. One does the modern, well dispersed microwave pattern, and a second one (with adjustable power compared to the first) just nukes the hell out of the central 2 inches of the platter. That way we can have food heated evenly and the world will be a happy place and hugs and puppies and lollipops and a rainbow and a chocolate fountain!
*sigh* Off to re-microwave my half boiling half frozen soup.
