Microwave Porridge To Go Bowl 2 "Disappointed" 08 October 2018 This is a neat little bowl and seemed to be exactly what I needed to make my morning bowl of microwave porridge. However, in spite of reducing down from 1 portion, as recommended on my cereal, to a half portion, and reducing the recommended cooking time, the porridge still explodes all over the microwave. It is not just a small amount! It would still make a handy box to take other food to work to reheat, just not porridge. A note from the team You could try cooking for longer on a lower temperature.
