I set the microwave on fire twice today. TWICE! I was dehydrating kale chips and they caught fire. The first time I thought the ceramic plate overheated and caused the fire. The next time I tried a paperplate. Yea... um... it wasn't the ceramic plate and the second time it had kindling. *sigh*
If you're ever trapped in the wilderness (with a microwave and a generator) kale chips work better than matches! I'll use the dehydrator from now on.
I managed to save most of them.
