Can You Get a Crush on a Microwave?
You can when it masters reheating pizza.
Confession: despite the fact that I was born in the ’70s and still remember the thrill of our first family microwave (circa 1989: we weren’t exactly early adopters), I never use my microwave for much more than reheating, and the occasional bag of popcorn. (I also went six years without one, and did just fine, thank you). I’d been a little underwhelmed with soggy pizza crusts, and leftovers that were hot on the outside, cool in the middle. All of which is to say: microwaves, low on my radar.
But we previewed a microwave here a couple of days ago that seems to be a bit of a game-changer. Breville’s QuickTouch Crisp microwave features an ingenious crisper pan that’s perfect for reheating pizza and quiche; and it also appeals to my baking hobby: quick-touch buttons for melting chocolate (no more scorch!) and softening butter. (For when I forget to pull it from the fridge. Also known as, every time.) Apparently it’ll crisp up a grilled-cheese sandwich, too.
It’s cool to be crushing on a microwave, right?
