The setup is key. You have a recliner in front of the TV. Next to the recliner is a small dorm fridge. On top of the fridge is a microwave. Viola! You never have to go to the kitchen! This is especially helpful with sporting events where the commercial breaks are shorter. No need to thank me.

I just push the PAUSE button, get up and do what needs doing, then return and push the CONTINUE button. I can usually catch up with the original program by fast forwarding through the commercials.

The only hazard I can think of is getting the food too hot.

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks,

Well Joe, this is a little outside my wheelhouse, but I'm pretty sure you shouldn't warm up babies in a microwave.
