Microwave oven oven

a device to cook in a microwave stuff the package says DO NOT COOK IN A MICROWAVE OVEN
  [vote for,

Basically a box you can put in a microwave, heat the box up, Then put whatever in the box to bake.

If watch some videos on the internet that are titled "What happens if you put ______ in a microwave." You might think such a box would blow up taking out a city block, but with little cautious design it must be doable. (My favorite is titled "What happens if you put microwave in a microwave." )

Why? Just bought some vegetable rolls in a box that said DO NOT COOK IN A MICROWAVE OVEN Having no oven they went in the microwave despite the warning. The insides were overcooked and the roll was tough. Edible, but not good. particularly tough at the ends. Notice a similar heating of ends on microwaved hot dogs.

       How would it work, do you have any idea?

       Kind of like boiling water by putting hot stones from a fire in it.   

       You'd think it would be easier & quicker to just use a real oven but I imagine a significant minority don't bother with them these days.   

       Can actually see a market & how it would work.   

       No caution needed I think, you just need a material that absorbs heat & releases slowly (like a reverse freezer block) - you'd heat that in the microwave & put in a box which would be of insulating materials.   

       The food then goes in the box   

       Box & hot block can probably be made as one so the whole thing goes in the microwave.   

       Outer would be material that doesn't heat readily & dissipates quick (to pick up & put on surfaces).   

       You may be able to make with coated cardboard so disposable, which has several advantages (one, being disposable, people will (dispose), & voila! immediate resale market (when another's needed)).   

       Plus the disposable version could be retailed to the food industry as packaging (take food out place in microwave & heat, replace food & wait).   


       You know [po], you really should develop your own ideas b4 posting ;p   

       Someone else will have to tell us what microwave friendly materials may be appropriate so not un-guilty myself :)

       //Can actually see a market & how it would work//   

       So much so I've been searching the web for extant products, nothing so far, may be using the wrong search parameters?   

       Of course, most of your drying / hardening problems can be averted by nuking your chosen comestible in a container of some sort (though that produces soggy results, sometimes do part & part to avoid that but you never get the crispy outer pastry effect of an oven (even with the little silvered strips)).

       A convection microwave might do the trick.
