Ok, so the title may sound a little dramatic…but it’s true!
First of all I have 3 teenage sons, so that is enough right there, just imagine three teenage sons and a husband, my kitchen can be a disaster – like a wild herd of hyenas just came through.
Let’s not mention the fridge or the dishes, lets focus on the microwave for a minute.
My head is hurting just visualizing what my microwave use to look like.
Quick question, if you are a mom can you answer this?
Do we have superhero eyes that your family members don’t have? I mean, when I open the microwave I see food on the top of the microwave and on both sides…but for some reason my sons or my husband don’t seem to notice – how convenient for them! LOL
I mean, seriously, I open the microwave and I cringe in disgust. I see spaghetti sauce, some brown sauce, some yellow splatter of something and then there is the smell that comes with it – but, once again, nobody but me seems to notice ! Interesting….
So, I told my boys and my husband, please use a paper towel and cover your food so it doesn’t splatter. Surprisingly, they agreed and I can honestly say they tried very hard. But, I was out of paper towels so fast it wasn’t even funny – that microwave is like a vortex from a sci-fi movie sucking my money and my patience.
I was randomly on Amazon.com (I buy everything from there) and did a search for Microwave Covers and found one on there with great reviews – it was a little pricey, but people loved it. It was also BPA free which was a benefit. So, I got it.
Soon as it arrived, I put it to work —- Hallelujah!!! It was a dream come true….notice how the microwave is CLEAN (check out picture) – but it would have been a disaster. All that needs to be done is clean the cover.
1 – The size was perfect, sat on the plate, didn’t touch the food, not too tall to touch the top of the microwave
2 – Nice vent to let out the steam while warming up the food
3 – The vent was awesome also because when I took food out of the microwave and needed to keep it warm, I used the microwave cover, closed the vent and food stayed warm.
4 – The cover is great to just cover stuff (see picture below)
Overall I am VERY happy with my cover, I actually bought two more. This is because I use it for more than just the microwave, so they come in handy.
So, if you want your sanity, I recommend one or two or three of these.
Here is the link to the one I got on Amazon —> http://amzn.to/1NDsURa

Full house of 3 teenage sons, a husband, 2 cats and a dog 🙂
