On my stove top I do two full boils at the same time but open the microwave door half way and lay a piece of aluminum foil across the top. This gives me much better ventilation as there is a small fan inside the microwave as well.

Isn’t that Maytag guy always sitting on his ass in the commercials waiting for a call?!

I just think the microwave died… I’ve seen that before (Ha! At a friend’s house… but I wasn’t using it! I swear!). Besides, they make microwaveable pasta which floods the inside with steam and no problems there.

Is a good chance to toss the microwave and don´t replace it, honestly I gave my microwave away two years ago and I don´t miss it... reheat your food some place else. We don´t need microwaves.

Same boat here...I believe its probably a code violation considering how low my microwave is to my stove. I melted off the plastic on the buttons early this summer. I also have to have paper towels because I have to wipe of water droplets. My microwave is probably 20 years old...seriously. I did a double batch one day and halfway through the second boil the fan just shut off.

Still, the microwave works...at least for now.

Just a word of warning...don't play inside the microwave guts. High voltage exists at lethal levels of current and capacitor(s) too.

I have a similar setup, and had my microwave completely shut down from cooking pasta. Took a day to dry out as now I always cook pasta on the back burner so it doesnt get the face of the microwave wet. But, it does save counter space.

You can't (very easily) have a microwave and an effective, properly vented hood.

Mine is a corvette of hood vents that moves anything outside the house in 3.5 seconds. No way a microwave could get between this thing and it's prey.

Second the motion to BAN microwaves.

We have the same set up that came with our house we had built in 2000. The ray gun in it burned out & they had to replace it. Burned out again & microwave door latch broke. We gsve up on it. Same steaming & dripping. I want to replace it with a real range hood. But don't want to cut holes in the wall for the eshaust piping. I wonder if they make some kind of ornate pipping for the exhaust,so I can run it under the cabinets to the ourtside wall for it to exit? Might look kinda OG too.
Besides,then I can torcher the neighbors with wonderfull beer smells too. I already send'em runnin for take out when I get the pit smokin real good. We'll be doin that to'em with a ham come Christmas morning.

Back from the dead!

We purchased a new mircowave, I purchased a bayou gas burner and a 40qt pot.

Pretty much solved the problems. And SWMBO as forgiven me.. (i think..........) :P
