Why oh why is this considered for discussion?

From: http://rabi.phys.virginia.edu


Is heating milk by microwave advisable? - I
Microwave cooking leaves no permanent mark on the food. It causes virtually no chemical damage and absolutely no radioactivity. The only drawback with heating milk by microwave is that the heating may be uneven and may denature some protein molecules in regions of the milk that become excessively hot. Since most protein molecules are disassembled by your digestion anyway, this treatment probably has no effects worth worrying about. Even with infant formula, my only concern would be the hot spots. If you carefully shake the milk after heating, so that its temperature is uniform, it should be just fine. I suspect that companies warn you not to heat milk in a microwave because they are worried that you will either not shake the milk to distribute its temperature evenly or that you will overcook it until it boils and the bottle explodes.


And

So whoever said it was 'bad' better have something to back up such claim.

I'm locking this now. I mean, I don't think this deserves to be a thread. There is no discussion is there?

^^ you flatter me good sir!

To stay on topic though >_> I usually use a saucepan, unless I'm feeling exceptionally lazy. In that case the microwave is my friend <33

Mauz pretty much explained the microwave misconception. I think it's because of the idea that it's a form of "radiation", and how it was attached to the radiation emitted by radioactive materials. Heating things is a Microwave is totally safe... what you heat is the real question... just don't go popping things in there at random...

Here's a question: Is it okay to use vinegar besides Mirin when preparing sushi rice? I've heard of some people using apple cider, but what other vinegars can be used?

^ Eddie, i use white distilled vinegar, and i've also used balsamic - however it gives it a definate taste difference, which i actually like but some might not enjoy the flavor change.

i'm just a huge fan of balsamic vinegar. =D
