If you have a PC microwave oven, insert the dinner into
the oven. Set the oven using these keystrokes:
You then enter:
If you have a Mac oven, insert the dinner and press start. The oven will set itself and cook the dinner.
Be forewarned that Microsoft dinners are subject to
frequent crashes, in which case your oven must be restarted. This is a
simple procedure. Remove the dinner from the oven and enter:
This process may have to be repeated, and might solve your problem. Many users have reported that the dinner tray is far too big, larger than the dinner itself, having many useless compartments, most of which are empty. Microsoft says these are for future menu items. However, the tray is so large that it will only fit in the largest industrial ovens, forcing many users to upgrade.
Dinners are only available from registered outlets, and only the chicken variety is currently produced. If you want another variety, call Microsoft Help and they will explain that you really don't want another variety. Microsoft Chicken is all you really need. Microsoft has disclosed plans to discontinue all smaller versions of their chicken dinners. Future releases will only be in the larger family size. Excess chicken may be stored for future use, but must be saved only in Microsoft approved packaging. Users get excited about having veggies with their Microsoft dinners, often telling their friends about it, as though this were something new. Microsoft promises a dessert with every dinner after 98. However, that version has yet to be released. Users have permission to get thrilled in advance.
The box for the TV dinners is so large that it will not fit in many smaller freezers, and the shape prevents the storage of any other brand of dinners.
Microsoft dinners are often not compatible with other
dinners in the freezer, causing your freezer to self-defrost. Calling
Microsoft Help will elicit the explanation that your freezer probably
should have been defrosted anyway.
