I am in the process of moving, and my family bought a new oven and microwave set.<br><br>
Most microwaves come with buttons like 'popcorn', 'defrost', etc. BOTH the oven AND the microwave came with just two food button options, "chicken nuggets", and "pizza".<br>
Really? It looks just bizarre on the oven especially, having all normal buttons and then "chicken nuggets" out of nowhere.<br><br>
My mom suggested (in jest) that I contact the company for a vegan option button, and try to sue them. I think I may write to them about the chicken nugget button, though. The rest of my family thinks it's tacky, and I suppose there's no harm done.<br><br>
Have you ever experienced just strange things like this?

I've seen the pizza button in the list before, but never chicken nuggets. Strange.

Who microwaves pizza? It comes out soggy when you do that. I always reheat pizza in the toaster over or real oven, never in the microwave. </offtopic><br><br>
But yeah, I'd write the company about the chicken nuggets button. That's kinda weird.<br><br>

Heh, that's kind of funny, and strange.<br><br>
If the rest of your family finds the button tacky then why did they buy that one?

Man that's specific. "Chicken nuggets"?????<br><br>
Both those would be icky microwaved (I'm extrapolating that fried bird parts would end up like every fried item I've ever seen someone try reheating in a microwave. Mmmmm ... mush.)

Hmmm.... very weird. Can you post a picture of it? Not that I don't believe you but I'm curious.

Wait...is there no timer/clock on the microwave or oven since there's just two options or are they the <i>only</i> food options? I second the pic request. I'm curious also!!

Who microwaves pizza?</div>
</div>
<br>
I did, from a bit before my early teens up to my mid teens. the pizza turned out ok, but *I* did not turn out ok, so yeah, avoid doing that.

I would print out a little sticker to put ontop of the "chicken nugget" button that says "Soy nuggets". Personally just seeing meat names on my appliances makes me feel a bit uncomfortable.

I've never heard of those buttons either. I really want to see a picture.

Sounds like that mircrowave was made especially for omni college students.

They're high quality, which is why I'm so surprised. I'm heading to the new house this weekend, so I will make sure to upload a picture!<br><br>
I didn't have any say in the buying of these, and I don't know why my family got them, as they were ordered when I was away at college. There must be some good reason for why they chose them over another. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
There IS a timer/numbers, etc, but in addition, the only two food buttons are "chicken nuggets" and "pizza". It just looks STRANGE.<br>
The picture will be coming. :)

that <i>is</i> bizarre.<br>
were these appliances made in the USofA? because if they were, that would be even more bizarre.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

Here's the famed oven. It's an expensive one, too!

^What does "My Favorite" mean?? What is the lock button for? What locks? The oven door?<br><br>
New expensive appliances are complicated and weird. I'll stick to my 10 yr old microwave I got at Walmart for $20 and my stove that's probably considered ancient since it has knobs instead of digital buttons. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">
