Uhh what do I do with the burnt remains of something I put in there earlier and didn't take out before pre heating?

[–] Viking_Hippie 3 points 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago)

Mean to do something about it for several years but never ACTUALLY do anything because it feels too overwhelming to even start?

That's what I would do 🤷

[–] agent_flounder 10 points 2 months ago (1 children)

Yay

Now what was I going to make ...last Tuesday?

[–] Viking_Hippie 10 points 2 months ago

A mess, probably? 🤷

Ooh, look at Moneybags over here who can afford a minimally ADHD-friendly oven! Must be nice!

Just joshing with you of course, though I very much AM jealous lol 😁

Hey my car does that too

[–] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago

ive tuned it out

"Oh it's done preheating but I have 2 more minutes left in this game. I'll put my food in when I'm done."

2 hours later and I remember it's on. I do this all the time.

[–] [email protected] 7 points 2 months ago

I forgot I left mine on and it died. It's been like 2 months and I've yet to fix it lol 😂 fuck it I got an air fryer

I love having a smart watch.

Put on water for coffee or tea “Set a timer for 4 minutes” “Why is my watch buzzing? Oh yeah!” Don’t let it all boil away any more

[–] LeroyJenkins 3 points 2 months ago (1 children)

tbf a dumb watch can usually do this too

[–] [email protected] 3 points 2 months ago (2 children)

I don't love talking to my electronics, but when it works, "siri two minutes" is dramatically more convenient than whatever bullshit you'd do with tiny buttons on a Casio whatever in the 80s. I do agree with the sentiment, but ... we're pretty spoiled.

I love my G-Shock watch. Practically invincible, can drop it from a building or go swimming with it, charges by solar panels and never dies, syncs with atomic clock towers by radio waves (no need for NTP!). I can set alarms, timers, stopwatches across timezones. It has dates stored locally until 2099 and it just cost $100. Smart watches may be more convenient for you, but imo the Casio is a better value and won't ever need to be replaced within 5 years because it doesn't get software updates

[–] LeroyJenkins 1 points 2 months ago (1 children)

i personally dont agree it's dramatically more convenient. first and foremost, I don't have to say anything to my wrist. it works when it's loud around me and it doesn't get it wrong sometimes. it doesn't die on me and it doesn't bother me with messages from work. a few button presses are not dramatically more inconvenient bullshit imo. I don't even need to look to do it anymore. my phone can also hear and respond to me from my pocket. I can just ask my phone. just my perspective. I respected your method until you said mine was bullshit.

yes, you said what I do is bullshit and I responded as to why it's not. do you always just provoke people and accuse them of being not ok once they respond?

[–] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

I'm sorry my words upset you; 'bullshit' was meant broadly, referencing my general experience with watches in the 80s—like a synecdoche, where a part stands for the whole. It wasn’t aimed at anyone personally.

[–] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago (1 children)

Doesn't your kettle turn off automatically?

[–] [email protected] 1 points 2 months ago

No, it’s a stove top one and the whistler is broken

[–] cypherix93 3 points 2 months ago

Not my oven, but my teapot was boiling, thanks!

[–] TIMMAY 3 points 2 months ago

Two years ago I ditched my stove-top kettle for a small electric one. Since then, my ratio of "kettle started" to "tea had" is probably 20 to 1 simply because the new one makes no noise when it is done and I usually just forget all about it

[–] [email protected] 3 points 1 month ago

Thanks! Now if I’d just had a microwave that would remind me that the chicken I was defrosting was done…three days ago. Yep, that happened to me once :/

[–] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Or go chek the coffee that has probably brewed for half an hour or more by now...

[–] [email protected] 0 points 2 months ago

Fuck preheating, I just leave whatever I'm cooking in there longer. Unless I'm in going to be in the kitchen doing something else for a while, then I might let it preheat for a bit
