    I sympathise although I don't have the problem. Since I no longer have a microwave oven (haven't bothered replacing the old one), I decant meals like this and cook them in the oven, in different dishes.
    I agree. The top film is useless and can't be peeled off in a oner (usually). I hate the way those plastic containers deform too, so that's why I put the contents into different containers for cooking. Works for me.

    It's really irritating that some products are covered with film that comes off the container smoothly and in one piece while other products (from the same company) are covered in film that is practically auditioning for a job with the Berlin Wall!

    What I don't understand is why anyone would heat food in them anyway it is not hard to empty them on a plate to heat, sorry

    Because that is how the product is intended to be used?

    They'll record anything, no matter whether it is the album version or the older single version.
    Having said that, I don't know what the DRM is like for recording from DAB, so it's likely if someone wants to record them it will be from FM if at all on the radio.
    Much more likely is they find a download site, legal or otherwise, and take it from there.

    Recording from radio, for anyone who has access to the net must surely be extremely limited now.

    Plus if you wait the minute they tell you, you get the rigidity back. And the timings are calculated for the stuff in the tray, not out of it. Plus many things will splatter all over if you put them on a plate.

    Down load a YouTube clip and extract the audio, takes but a few minutes.

    Probably very neat and tidy. They leave all the rubbish outside. :mad:

    Probably spotless.
    Used to work with someone who kept their desk absolutely clean, neat and immaculate. Their home was a tip.

    Having been in hundreds if not thousands of houses, nothing would shock me. Stepping around dog and cat crap, bottled human urine, seeing kitchens that have never been cleaned, ever. Piles of dirty washing, dirty pots and pans, dirty kids nappies etc.
    Invariably apologised because they “haven’t cleaned today” when they mean ever.

    I had the joy of inspecting a vacant office once. Even rats died when they went in:eek:

    Tip top tip for you.
    If you ask a visitor to sit and they say “it’s ok, I’ve been sat down most of the day”

    if you ask a visitor if they’d like a drink and they reply “Thanks but if I drink any more I’ll be going to the toilet all day”

    They are being polite. Your sofa is minging and so are your cups. Clean your house!

    One of the things one needs to check when buying a microwave with 1000w or more power outputs is if it also supports the most commonly-used 800w power level that is displayed on microwavable meals and in recipe books. My 1000 Panasonic does not, so I had to make a conversion chart, as the manufacturer cannot be ar*ed to offer users one.

    I've never noticed difference between 800, 900, 1000. On different machines they seem to be the same.
