Default How do you test your microwaved food?

I was waiting for the guy to take his food from the microwave and when he did he stuck his tongue into the meat loaf to test the heat. Not sure if he winked at me at the same time but none the less, how do you test your food?

Finger?

Put your lips in proximity of the heat?

Tongue it?

Sniff the heat?

I just put my hand over it to test heat and look to see if it's steaming

I just start eating and when I hit a cold spot I pop it back in for 20 seconds.

pick the amount of time ahead of time and just stick with it. I usually end up with cold food when I get back to my desk. but today I did okay.

bluetooth probe that's linked to my phone app. it shows me the proper temp of the food after it's cooked from the microwave.
my trick to heating up food is to always take a damp/wet napkin and place it on top of the food. reheating food in a microwave needs water of some sort. try it on pizza and your mind will be blown.

I almost never microwave anything. Leftovers I eat cold or don’t eat.

Cooking at home almost nothing I make uses the microwave if I can avoid it.

I just eat it. A little too hot, a little too cold, just right... doesn't matter. It's microwave food.

Set the timer for 20 minutes no matter what it is....it's guaranteed to be warmed up.

Listen to it as it's cooking. Once the sizzling / popping becomes frequent, it's done.

You guys notice when nuking Chinese food it's never got in the middle? You can nuke that **** for three mins and it will be hot as **** on the top of the food the you take a bite and it's cold in the middle

I ways nuke something for a min or two then stir that **** up and nuke for another min or two.

Not a fan of nuking food, but pro-tip: Don't just pull your leftovers out the fridge and toss them into the microwave after sitting in the fridge all night/week. Open it up, give them a nice mix or fluff (que GDD fluffer jokes now) before tossing them in. When things settle warm, they clump together and then get chilled to finally become a solid single mass. Loosen the contents, whatever they might be, and you get a more even heat through the food. You will likely still need to mix halfway through but the process wont take as long all together.

Is there an option for the eye test? If it's bubbling like boiling, then it's too hot. The same with cheese items.

That's because it's packed too tight. Loosen it up in the middle. Or dig a hole in the middle.

It's like cooking a steak. The tips would be burnt, but red on the inside. Sometimes I make a cut down the middle to even things out.

Heat it for 2 minutes, stir it, eat it. The hot parts will mix with the cold parts and it will all be warm enough to shovel down my gullet

Just don't use one. Easy. I'm not even some big *** food snob. They are great in a pinch but I plan my meals and time if I'm in a rush I wait and snack. That little bit of cold spot or how it de oxygenizes water for tea irks me to a point I rather wait.
