Star Trek Microwave

line of light that appears to cook food

In the Star Trek Microwave, a narrrow beam of intense light, in the form of a horizontal blue line, is projected unto the food from above as it turns when the oven is switched on.

As the meal rotates, the line of light illuminates every variation in the contours and indents, creating the illusion that it is cooking the food as it heaves, bubbles and steams.

       The LCARS interface would be more appropriate for a microwave than a starship.

       LCARS is rubbish .... can't handle electronic/organic interfacing at anything like a decent speed, and the command protocol is SO fiddly. The Federation insist on having evryting approved by about 20 different committes .... the Klingon stuff is better, simple, maybe a bit crude, but immensely rugged.   

       We like the idea by the way.

       Or a replicator microwave that takes a photo of the item, displays an empty microwave on an LCD door and then animates it materialising.

       Would it have a "stun" setting?
