Falcone's Crossroads

Where This Meets That

Microwave Revolution: Back in Real Time!

For the last three weeks, our household of seven has braved life without a microwave while waiting for delivery of a replacement part. Wave guide director

The culprit was the wave guide director, that piece of shiny paper that looks like a sheet of foil mounted on the inside wall of your microwave.  (No, it’s not foil; foil in the microwave is a bad thing.)

The fix couldn’t be easier; just slide the old one out and slide the new one into place.  It’s cheap, too, costing only $11.20 (plus $8 shipping & handling) to replace.

Trouble is, our microwave is about 14 years old, and our wave guide director is now a special order part.  Hence, our brief regression to the dark ages . . . like 1970’s dark!

Disco FalconeWe’re talking oven-heated-leftovers-dark!

Meals-where-no-two-dishes-are-hot-at-the-same-time-dark!

Popcorn-on-the-stove-top-dark!

80-minute-mac-and-cheese-dark!

Wondering-“will-this-melt-in-the-oven?”-dark!

Bee-Gees-hits-all-the-time-dark!

It’s been like Saturday Night Fever for three whole weeks in the Falcone household, but today, I’m happy to announce that a shiny new wave guide director is in place, and this microwave is ready to zap something!

That’s right, it’s like disco is dead all over again.  And thank God!
