A Golden Delicious is not delicious if it's got maggots.

Actually, you ain't wrong, @RobPN  - they are probably my least favourite apples.

I must have accidentally forgotten to write ‘necessarily’... 🤔

A flash in the pan usually means you've turned the microwave on with metal utensils left inside.🤣

@shutter YOU don't have to be a bright spark - the microwave will produce it for you.😉

But the walls of a microwave are made of metal - they don't don't cause a flash in the pan. 🙂

@VileReynard Different alloy - some metals are not conductive.😁

Wikipedia says:-

In 1945, the heating effect of a high-power microwave beam was accidentally discovered by Percy Spencer, an American self-taught engineer from Howland, Maine. Employed by Raytheon at the time, he noticed that microwaves from an active radar set he was working on started to melt a chocolate bar he had in his pocket. The first food deliberately cooked with Spencer's microwave was popcorn, and the second was an egg, which exploded in the face of one of the experimenters.[11][12] To verify his finding, Spencer created a high density electromagnetic field by feeding microwave power from a magnetron into a metal box from which it had no way to escape. When food was placed in the box with the microwave energy, the temperature of the food rose rapidly.
