It burned ramen (and the cover inside the microwave), damaged both the plastic cooker and cover, and smells smoky.
(Stop judging me on the ramen, IT'S A COMFORT FOOD, DAMMIT.) I've microwaved ramen using this
plenty of times before, but this time the ramen burned and the plastic was distorted/melted. No actual fire/flames occurred, just smoke and slight melting of the plastic and the splatter cover occurred and I ended up throwing both of those out.
Everyone I've asked IRL is all, "I have no idea, microwave something else and see what happens," but it took long enough for my place to stop reeking of smoke and I am afraid to try it again. Tomorrow is Free Microwave Disposal At The Dump Day (or something like that, I forget what the flyer said), so I have to decide ASAP if this needs disposing of.
After checking the previous questions: no visible scorch mark
is on the microwave, but it still smells a bit smoky
if you open the door, so I'm not sure if the "microwave some water and see" trick is gonna work. Microwave is god only knows how old by now, but probably old enough to get rid of. It does have a rotating platter.
