Mail-Mittened Microwave

helping hands in the oven
  [vote for,

This revolutionary, interactive microwave resembles a “glove box”, a sealed box with glove inserts to handle hazardous materials or where cleanliness is beyond godliness. These internal door gloves are covered in mail to avoid radiation, and their polished metal rings are smooth to prevent sparks.

The gloves along with microwave-free, metal mesh, ingredient compartments inside provide fantastic new capabilities for mixing and stirring during microwave cooking. Now you can compose and blend paella, chili, fudge and stir-fried vegetables faster, without removing them, while they cook.

When the meal is ready, use the oven mitt option – press the touch screen with your nose to turn off the oven and loosen the door to take the dish directly to the table with the windowed door on your forearms.

What keeps microwave radiation from leaking out the oven door? http://www.straight...bag/mmicromesh.html

       Although I suspect that the dishes you mention would be far better prepared in a non-microwave manner, your experience may be different, and this would certainly be useful for stirring scrambled egg. Have a microwaved croissant.

       Actually, I might have found that a microwave oven inserted in the dashboard of my car in lieu of the traditional "glove box" had more usefulness. A "Mail-Mitten" to remove and handle the cooked meals whilst travelling might also have been welcome.
