OK. Microwave controls vs. food package instructions. If you cook something in the microwave for 1 minute, the microwave timer counts down from 60. So, if the food package says to cook something for, say, 4-1/2 minutes, do you set the timer for 4.50 (half a minute = 0.50 minute) or 4.30 (half of 1 minute (60 seconds) = 30 seconds)? Somebody in the food industry (or the microwave industry, not sure which) has really dropped the ball here. You’d think they’d put the microwave times on the package directions the way you should punch them in on the microwave controls, for crying out loud!
