I remember when figuring out how to read my analog watch and think of time was tricky… In kindergarten. This was from Yahoo Answers:
This is a bit of a random question, but the answer ha sbeen bugging me for a long time. Ok so…
On a microwave, if you push 60, then it will cook for 60 seconds or 1minute (following me?) AND also if you press 1:00 it will cook for 1 minute (right? right!) okay well my question is… if you add 1:00 and 1:00 is = 2:00 right? so you can cook food for total of two minutes. BUT if you add 60seconds + 60 seconds it will only cook for one minute and twenty seconds. Even though 60 seconds is 1 minute? (I know, confusing question, right?)
I guess put into simpliest terms, How come 1 miniute plus one minute = 2 minutes but 60 seconds + 60 seconds = 120 seconds?
I was essentially sold on this when I saw the following in the description:
- Initialize your kitchen and calibrate your tools - Learn about the important reactions in cooking, such as protein denaturation, Maillard reactions, and caramelization, and how they impact the foods we cook - Play with your food using hydrocolloids and sous vide cooking
