Explosions in kitchen

If you boil milk in the microwave and immediately add sugar to it, the milk... explodes.

What are the other explosions people have experienced.

Do we really need microwaves in India? Lots of issues reported related to radiation the world over. more

I am using the microwave for the past 5yrs n have been making coffee number of times after heating the milk for minute in bosrosil cup. Nothing happened when I added sugar coffee powder. Must some other problem. more  
Use of conventional cooking style and equipment like clay pots and brass containers are making a comeback..definitely, as practised earlier by most of Indians, they have many advantages..in recent times, we have opted for convenience (plastic is one big instance) over science based traditions..the results are out for all to see..
Microwave is convenient, but not compulsory..and one may use it to a limited extent, so as not to reduce nutrient quality, ensure thorough cooking/ reheating etc.
Safety issues apply to both conventional and MW cooking.. more  
People come out with some comical comments with out any basic support from any source. I am using a Microwave oven since 1982 and I am now 77 years old. The first one conked off due to Voltage fluctuation (Quality Power) after 11 years. The second one is now 27 years old and still working. Ms.Neelima Verma may kindly read the User's Manual. Will some chemical expert explain the enmity between sugar and boiled milk. more  
Depends on the way of use-read and learn about the machine then use-microwave is very safe-but needs lots of knowledge about the equipment if you want to use convection and other modes. more  
any liquid that gets boiled in microwave, must be handled carefully. Unlike boiling liquid on conventional way, liquids in microwave do not move (water moves due to desolved air bubbles coming up. So when an over heated liquid (beyond temperature of boiling point) sores heat within it. The moment such liquid is shaken, this heat tries to come out and the liquid jumps. this causes burn. more
