Instruction manuals are there for a reason. That is why this woman felt betrayed when she burnt her cottage pie to a crisp after putting it in the microwave for 45 minutes as instructed in the manual.
Kylie Jarman, 20, from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, has recently raised a complaint against Sainsbury’s claiming the culinary disaster was caused because of the misleading instructions given on the packaging.
Ms Jarman was preparing the meal and was planning to share it with her sister-in-law Sarah McKown.
She took to Facebook and said: ‘Don’t buy cottage pie from Sainsbury’s as this is what happens when you put it in the microwave for 45 minutes.’
But as soon as she posted this on social media, dozens of her friends revealed her mistake to her in the comments.
One of the friend wrote: ’45 mins in the microwave, I’m surprised it’s not radioactive.’
Another said: ‘Four to five minutes more like!’
Kylie later clarified, ‘The pack had cooking instructions on two sides, one for the microwave and one for the oven.
‘I thought it said 45 minutes in the microwave because it had small writing.
‘I did momentarily think it was a little strange when Sarah tapped in ’45’ on the microwave but we were so tired and hungry neither of us noticed.’
Unemployed Kylie said: ‘We can have a laugh about it now. It’s silly but we’ve had a giggle.’
