Microwave Versus The Cooker
Hello There My Friends,
I hope you are well - I was listening to Chris Evans on BBC Radio 2 yesterday and he was interviewing an interesting guest who was supporting and promoting the microwave oven.
Apparently according to Chris's guest, Jennipher Marshall-Jenkinson, if everyone who was intending to have a baked/jacket potato for their dinner last night cooked the potato for 12 minutes in the microwave (4 potatoes x 12 mins total) rather than 1 - 2 hours cooking time in a conventional electric oven, it would reduce energy consumption so much that an entire power station could be decommissioned!
So the next time you fancy a jacket spud please bear this in mind !
