Now this is what I call real journalism - eat yer hearts out Woodward and Bernstein!
Seems the customer has misread the instructions and cooked the food in the microwave for the time it'd need in the oven, possibly from frozen.
An elderly relation of ours used to do this because she'd forget the microwave wasn't an oven and would set the control for 30 minutes or whatever, then go off and forgot she'd done it.
That's how dementia works, you sort of remember parts of things and can mix them up.
She burned out three microwaves and was rescued from quite serious fire/smoke situations before we were able to get her into more appropriate accommodation.
