Hello! My Mom and I are having an argument about microwaving hot dogs. She says that I can use a regular hot dog, put holes in it, and it's microwavable! But I feel if the package that came with the hot dogs doesn't say microwavable, then it's probably not a microwavable hot dog!

So are the regular hot dogs just as microwavable as the "microwavable" hot dogs?

Why don't you try it out and tell us?


Or even better, stick a couple of green grapes in your microwave for a minute or so.

yeah, just roll them in a napkin and don't do it for too long. They're already cooked; just heat em up

wow....how can you even have an argument about that - i didn't even know that there are packages which say "microwavable" on them; I microwave whatever hotdogs I have - punching holes? wtf? but you just have to wacth the time and heat power as they have a tendency to explode if left in for too long.

But I don't understand, why don't they put "Microwavable" on the packages that have barbeque cookout pictures on?

It seems logical that it would be OK to microwave regular hot dogs, but there's no "this is microwave safe" stamp :(

Luckily microwaves are pretty cheap, I remember one time I was cooking bacon and the whole plate exploded, what a mess. Alot of times you'll be able see a bunch of blue electricity looking stuff pulsing out of the side of the microwave when I put something in that's small and dryish.

Did you know, if you take a grape, and slice it in half leaving the oppisite side of cutting side's peal still connected, if you then microwave the grape it will catch on fire.

some people say microwaves and metal have a bad effect together. They try this out on myth busters and they said it was busted? My OWN PERSONAL experience is me putting pop tarts in the microwave with the aluminum wrapper below them. Have you guys ever seen those balls with electricity from the center if you touch it the electricity comes toward you hands? That was the result and it made some horrible sounds. I stopped and got it out. I tryed the bottom pop tart and it tasted like burnt aluminum BLEH. The top one just smelled of aluminum, but I still took 4 bites and threw it away.

I'm confused! Is there a difference between a grape and a grape?

I don't have another microwave BMJ :( How am I going to microwave hot dogs now :( But once I get another microwave, I'll make hot dogs for everyone, but you will all have to give me your address...and credit card number. If you give me your SS I will also mail you some potatoe chips.

Back to hot dogs, I've always put holes in my hot dogs before nuking them. I think it helps to keep them from splitting, but I really don't know. I just do it because that's the way my mom taught me to do it.

If you put a cd in the microwave it sucks you into a rainbow dimention. :confused:

Note: try smoking a large amount of weed first, it slows down the instant translocation.

And yea, hot dogs... heat them in the microwave in a bowl, with the brine. Works a charm.

Is it true that if you nuke them, they crack into pretty spiderweb/lightning patterns?

Yea, wouldn't leave it in for too long.. but the effect is visually impressive

yea its bewcause of the film they are coated in. The film cracks and sparks off itsself. The result is a bunch of "lightning" and a cd that looks like a desert floor. Seven seconds is about the max for this trick, as it only takes about 3.
