They're really good for microwave meals though.

A machine that cools things is what I want

Great idea, maybe it could have a special place in door to keep milk bottles?

Things microwaves are good for:
Sponge pudding
Baked Beans
Taking the edge off a slightly stale muffin

Things microwaves are not good for:
Reheating tea and coffee. Its not the blitz just make another cup or better yet don't start if you can't find the time to drink it.
If its a Gen z salted coffee then do what you want with it, its not as if it will taste any worse.

Salted coffee? Used to get that at school when some cunt put salt in the sugar bowl. Can't imagine anyone wanting it voluntarily.

Microwave on 30% power to defrost bread or take the edge off less than room temperature cake etc.

Going from peerless Sharp models to a fitted AEG I'm not impressed with:
- unnecessarily loud ding [like the later Sanyos]
- have to remember 270 watts is 30% of 900 watts instead of just having a 30% button
- stupid dial to set the time instead of buttons

Didn't have beans on anything this week but did have beans adjacent to a toasted bagel. Instead of a pan, I gave the microwave a whirl on this occasion.

Beans directly in the bowl, cheddar and Encona hot sauce added, microwaved on low for a few mins, stirring a couple of times as required. This nicely thickened up the sauce (so no need to discard any) and melted the cheese. A quick final stir, add plenty of white pepper and spoon into gaping maw. Would highly recommend.

I thought it was generally accepted microwaved beans were shitter, I assumed that the reason people did it was out of perceived convenience.

This of course being a false economy, scraping off the baked-on tidemark on whatever you microwaved it in is way more effort than using the hob.

Know what.  It's tomato sauce not bean juice.  Juice comes from fruit not beans.  You wouldn't squeeze an orange onto your bread and chew on your soppy juicy slice now would you.

What the fuck are you on about? Juice doesn't have to be edible. Do you call it 'bin sauce' you freak?

So we're all agreed then. Heat the beans as described on the packaging and put them on some toast. Barry can we close the thread? cheers.

It depends. If I'm having it neat, say with brunch, then it's bin juice. Sauce is more of an umbrella category, but if if serving it reduced with meat or emulsified and enriched with egg yolk then it's bin jus or binaise.

Just learnt partner has been washing the sauce off half the beans to get the remainder to thicken quicker. It's going to take a few pages to factor this in.

Yes microwave for the convenience.  Always microwave for beans when I'm having beans on toast because it means it takes about 3:30 to make the whole thing.

The supply chain issues have come for all non-baked tinned beans. I wanted a tin of butterbeans today but no luck, I'll have to make the stew with cannelini beans.

Hate crowds, and I don't want one on my toast.

I propose a toast to Rowan Atkinson.

Beans on chips are nice as well.

What about beans AND egg on toast?

amateur

Sure thing, I'd probably go for scrambled but can't see an issue with any kind of egg with beans.

Long as the beans are mixed in with everything, you're grand.

Chollis

the cheese element is compromised if you're adding egg. One or the other

Brown sauce, bit of cracked pepper.  Luvvly.

I had beans on toast yesterday.  Normally the last of the farts are before I've gone to bed, but I kept waking up to fart and did the last of the farts after I'd got up.  On occasion I've had beans and not farted any more than usual.  It's weird how some beans contain more fart than others.
