Microwave Moisture Control

No more dry chicken

Microwaves dry out food. I flick water on the stuff I microwave, but it's imprecise: if I overcompensate the food comes out mushy.

If a microwave had a moisture sensor, it could calculate how much water your food was losing from evaporation. It could then add that water back in through a spray nozzle.

The microwave would draw water from a tiny stainless steel bottle, not a pipe.

       [+] except for the "steel bottle" bit... why not plastic ?

       Why not stainless?

       Why not get the microwave to use ice cubes in the shape of the Titanic, which are dropped on the food, to regulate the moistitity?

       Why not plastic is that, if it was plastic and inside the cooking chamber, the water inside the bottle would get heated and that would cause the water to spray out, the bottle to explode, or the bottle to melt.

       If you just put a container of water alongside whatever you're cooking, it should raise the relative humidity in the oven to 100%, at which point your food won't lose water.
