This microwave oven will play the Mission: Impossible theme music and will always stop the countdown timer at 00:01

       It would be nice if in addition to the music/timer combination, it came with a roll of fuse-wire that could be, on setting the timer, automatically spooled out to a length such that on ignition, it will take the appropriate time to burn down. Once spooled, the user is encouraged to light it to activate the microwave along with thematic music.

       Does it explode?

       It's a great idea.....Use it to heat up this croissant. Imagines after a few weeks of constant use a lump hammer being deployed.

       The microwave is -quicker- than normal, not slower. Reheating a croissant should take a few -seconds- not a few -weeks-. No wonder it goes that hard that you need a lump-hammer to bite into the croissant.

       What if you choose not to accept the mission ?

       //What if you choose not to accept the mission ?// - then no supermarket ready-meal ‘Lasagne For One’ for you!

       Some tie-in with an IOT network could expand this into a movie-life virtual experience, with popcorn. Have Alexa enable Mission: Impossible with your smart house devices and the TV for the background story.   

       I just might take this idea and run with it...

       [Rayf] - That makes me think that maybe this is just a "Film Noir Home" accessory item - ?

       + very cool

       The follow-on product could be a "24"-themed microwave, but that might be problematic if the timer only counts down one hour per week, and then you have to wait for the next episode ...

       How about a microwave that plays the theme from 'The Magic Roundabout' as the turntable turns, and makes a "boingggg!!!" sound when it's finished?

       ... or as a reminder that your rocks of crack are ready ?

       Brilliant! [+]   

       Sean Connery could have used one that stopped at 0:07.
