Microwaves have been invading our kitchens for decades now. Straight out of the future, this time-saving appliance seems almost magical. Although it is most often used to reheat leftovers from the previous day or to defrost a product, some people have become masters of the microwave, and have even invented cake recipes that can be made in just a few minutes. But as we've all noticed, microwaves have a nasty tendency to cook our food unevenly. In the end, it's apparently our fault.
