    Actually worked pretty well!

    Break egg, in a cup, cover with loose cling film and blast at 50% power for about 1minute40seconds, then let it sit for a while.

    Adds nicely to my ham sandwich and a minimum off fuss.

    40 seconds for me, still has a yolk.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Even quicker - When you wake up and go to make yourself a coffee/tea, drop 2 eggs in the kettle. When it's finished boiling, make your coffee and take out your cooked eggs.

    If you wish to avoid eggsplosions. Pierce the yolk with a sharp knife pre microwave.

    1 minute 40 sounds like too long for a runny yolk.

    Some people should be banned from the kitchen.

    Want some quick cooked veggies?

    Chopped some up and place on baking tray, then take them into the bathroom when you have a hot shower/bath. Be sure to close the door and windows though as you're effectively steaming them.

    Doesn't work on tough veg like carrots - Broccoli is fine though.

    Honestly, there was nothing wrong with the egg. It tasted fine.

    You do have to wash the cup up afterwards though :(

    Wash it whilst showering.

    Want quick grilled cheese on toast? Slice cheese and place on bread. Then put toaster on it's side and slide in bread (cheese side up of course). Place plate next to it, so it can pop out straight onto it.

    Don't ever do this, your toaster will catch fire

    The egg thing works fine, although you should put a little water in the cup. You should also, although this goes against the minimum of fuss thing, nuke it for 30 secs then 20 then 20 until it's done, to have a better chance of the yolk not exploding.
    Alternatively you can pierce the yolk first, but then you don't get a nice runny poached egg.
    You can also make half-decent scrambled eggs in the microwave.

    My work has a microwave and toaster but unsurprisingly no grill or hob, but with the magic of microwaves I can have scrambled or poached eggs on toast for breakfast.

    Feel like a boiled egg when you're out? Make sure you pack a battery, some electrical wire, a pin, and some sticky tape.

    Prick a hole on top of the egg and insert tip of wire, tape it up. Do the same to the bottom of the egg. Attach wires to battery and wait 10 minutes.

    I find a magnifying glass works a treat when you're on the move.

    Don't have a magnifying glass at hand? Head to a pub and ask for 2 pint glasses. Fill the first with a third water, then place the other inside it to trap the water tightly. Instant magnification.
