Has anyone yet solved the problem of your bowl getting hotter in the microwave than your soup?

@harris yeah, I threw out my microwave (to install a vent hood that could cope with a gas range). Now things get heated with fire, as the fire gods intended.

@harris The best I've done is preferentially using my light-colored bowls for microwaving, I have some brown bowls that are lovely but come out of the microwave choosing violence.

On a related note, I recently had to disappoint someone (who does not own a microwave) by telling them that "microwave safe" means safe for the bowls, and not (as they had assumed) safe for your fingers. If only!
