Venting your microwave meal.

Pretty much every microwave frozen meal I have says, "Slit the top film with a knife to vent." I look at it and then peel up the corner. I'm not going to get a knife out for that.

Is there a difference between peeling up the corner and slitting with a knife? Am I losing 20 or 30 International Flavor Units (IFUs - I just made that up) by not slitting it with a knife? It's so much easier to just peel the corner that I don't know why they don't just tell me to peel the corner. Do they perhaps have a partnership with the Big Knife companies?

Poll forthcoming.

Not eating microwave meals myself, is it possible that they want you to cut it open so that you don't burn yourself and then try to hold them liable?

At least that was the first thing that came to my mind.

What if you cut yourself with the knife?

I just leave the knife in it to keep it from blowing up and making a mess.

Doesnt matter, just make sure to add a bit of water or milk (depending on what it is) and a bit of butter.

It can really help make crap even more craptacular.

Now I'm curious about the proportion of knife users who wash the knife versus just putting it back. That might not rise to the level of a whole new poll, though.

Actually, metal in the microwave isn't necessarily damaging in many cases. The magnetron that creates the microwave rays can't really be hurt by it. The problem is when the metal gets in just the right position, it has the possibility of acting like an antenna which focuses the microwave rays and can arc and possibly ignite something else. It just depends on how much the microwaves are dispersed around in the cage, and what type of materials happen to be in the sweet spot, and whether they're moving around. But there are many ways you can safely have metal in a microwave. Some foods actually have a small bit of metal in the packaging and sometimes that is actually intended to focus the microwaves just a little bit.
