    I can't believe after all this time dealing with slow travel kettles or boiling water for DW's tea on the stove we discover the beverage button, a mug in the microwave, select the beverage button and in 2 mins we have a tea temp ready mug of water!
    MIND BLOWN....

    It was something like 20 years ago when I read the comment in a "Dear Abby" type of column but you need to be careful when "microwaving water."

    It is possible for the water to go well above 212 degrees F without boiling. Then when you take the cup out, the water suddenly boils over and splashes all over. MIND BLOWN? Well not exactly but it was mentioned that someone had his eye blown out by the splattering water. To protect yourself, get a barbecue stick or chop stick and, with the microwave door open just a crack, reach in and rapidly skim the surface of the water a few times. Then remove the cup.

    If you see the water bubbling and boiling then it has safely reached the boiling point and will not splatter explosively when you pick up the cup.
