I have been cooking with a microwave for many years. One would think that I’d have caught on to the concept that things that come out of the microwave are HOT. No, not me! Every time, I reach in bare handed. At least once a week, I end up burning my fingers on a steamy tortilla or the vent hole of my microwave steamer.
I don’t know why I abhor pot holders so much. There is certainly nothing wrong with them. I have plenty of them, that’s for sure. I just can’t seem to bother getting one out of the drawer.
