Dial Up A Microwave Meal

General Dial Type Microwave

Ah, the good old days when phones and microwaves required dialing. In this push-button, fast-paced modern existence it can be hard to slow down and enjoy a nice batch of microwave popcorn. The General Dial Type Microwave can help. Featuring a stainless steel design and 1000-watts of power, the microwave is on par with its modern counterparts. Because it is, after all, brand-new. As for a dial-up phone, that’s probably best left in the past considering how hard it would be to retrieve voice-mail messages. Leftovers, however, always have a place in the home.

Bodum Neon Green Grill Costs A Lot Of Green Too

Bodum Electric Indoor Table Grill and Griddle

For one hundred and forty dollars, you too can pick up the Bodum Electric Indoor Table Grill and Griddle, Green. Now granted, the fact that it features a reversible plate is certainly useful, but for that price it sure would be nice to use both features at once if desired. A simple modification on the part of Bodum could have two cooking plates for example. If one would be able to use both plates at once–as a grill, a griddle or split half and half–it might justify the price a bit more. Just sayin’–as are the reviewers on Amazon.
