Grape Balls of Fire

June 7, 2004

Since a lot of people seem to wander on here for the “don’t microwave your peanut butter” story, I figured I’d share this with everybody—the Physics inside a Microwave Oven page.

This site is full of a lot of things you should never, ever do with your microwave oven, many of them with video of the excitement.  Highlights include lighting a lightbulb, crisping a CD, and (my personal favorite) generating balls of flaming plasma from split grapes…

Kids, don’t try this at home.
