She'll be THRILLED if she finds out I put this out on the internet...  :D

When I returned from Scout camp a couple weeks ago I went to cook up some veggies, but couldn't find the metal veggie steamer that goes in the pot (http://www.amazon.com/Amco-Collapsible-Steamer-Stainless-Steel/dp/B000Q4N2LO).  I was, to a point, ripping the kitchen apart going nuts.  When I asked my better half about it, she, reluctantly, informed me of it's demise... Reader's Digest version: It didn't survive 3 minutes on high (1200 watts) in our microwave.  Oddly enough, the microwave still works just fine!

Thanks, Al, for reminding me to post this!: 

We bought stickers to put on our honey jars/jugs and it says to put in hot water or micro wave to bring it back to liquid. It also warned not to have a metal lid on the jar.

She didn't?  Are you pulling our leg?  If she did, there must have been fireworks in that microwave, holy cow!

Sounds like and older fella I use to work for. They had bought an RV that had a mirowave in it. She wanted a baked potato, so in the new fangled oven it went on high, wrapped in aluminum foil for an hour. Almost melted the bottom out of the oven.
