UPDATED BELOW WITH REVIEW RESULTS:
You turn on the TV, see an infomercial, and before you know it, The HoverCover arrives in the mail. Not one, but two…you know the spiel, Buy One and Get The Second One for only Shipping and Handling. Yep, I did that.
In case you are one of the few who have not seen the ad, here’s what the Hover Cover does. Clever, I think.
I don’t microwave to cook but I do use it to reheat. For instance, I may cook a whole batch of chicken thighs at once then leave them in the fridge to have as leftovers or to tear up into soups. Reheating chicken is particularly messy in a microwave, it tends to splatter. Same with anything spaghetti sauce related or something that is melty.
I haven’t tried the Hover Cover out yet – I’m still reading the Consumer Protection leaflet, telling me my arbitration rights if I were to be harmed by the use of this product. Yikes!
Still, I think the premise is a good one – I heard it was a SharkTank idea that Shark Lori Grenier bought and is promoting. Kudos for the great name and for such a simple concept. I do not like that it is Made in China. I might have not bought it knowing that aforehand.
I’ll try it on something splatter-worthy later and report. Anyone else bought this??
Tried nuking bacon, melting butter, leftover chicken, and spaghetti with sauce. Not a spot or splatter anywhere. Kept the microwave sidewalls (and the roof too) perfectly clean. The HC gets a little hot to the touch but works as advertised. I give it a ten. Clever. Easy to use. Easy to store too if you don’t want to keep it in the microwave, which for me is what’ll happen. I don’t think I want plastic in the microwave for nuking things that don’t need to be covered. Make sense?
I don’t need two so some lucky and unnamed liberal family member might have the second one I got, and haven’t opened, wrapped at Christmas. Ho Ho Ho.
