Emily and I are working on something EPIC with our new appliances.
She received the same Frigidaire range and microwave to review.
Call me crazy but Emily strikes me as the type that would use her oven as storage and the range as a surface for sorting mail. Or maybe a good place to hold pizza boxes.
Her exact words from January 5, 2010?
I seriously should not be allowed to operate a stove. Or a microwave. And especially not a crock pot. -Emily “I am officially and idiot.“
Part of you will die when you read the above linked post.
THAT WAS INNOCENT FOOD. That she “cooked” and KILLED.
Being a generous soul I am going to attempt to teach her to cook (not kill) at least one thing from one state away.
And you guys? After our first few discussions? I have my work cut out for me.
The only reason I *think* I can do this?
Because I know she has a good consistent oven and microwave.
So if she screws up? It’s her screwing up, not an old dumpy oven or microwave leading her astray.
Just as research I have tried on purpose to ruin food on and in my new range and microwave.
IT CAN NOT BE DONE.
You hear me Emily?
The simmer burner simmered butter and cream into a perfectly melted caramel sauce.
The convection setting perfectly crisped my shortbread. (Which to be honest I thought was going to be a giant fail-the dough was totally off-but it was DIVINE. You know, as long as I took an allergy pill first.)
And have I ever mentioned that the microwave has a MELT CHOCOLATE BUTTON? And a SOFTEN CREAM CHEESE BUTTON? It also has a melt butter and soften ice cream setting (that actually work.)
Oh you guys. I could go on and on.
And if attempting to teach Emily that spaghetti sauce isn’t supposed to come from a jar (or a sauce tree as she called it) fails?
There’s also frozen pizza, chicken nugget and “hand held snack food” pre set buttons for her.
I wrote this review while participating in a Test Drive Campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Frigidaire and received a Frigidaire Range/Microwave to facilitate my review.
