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.

Tea. Earl Grey. Hot
<takes out tea, puts in piece of tasty pastry>
||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?
