    Know how to store, reheat food safely

    How old is your office microwave?
    I've been wondering about the microwave in the company cafeteria for some time now. Built like a Cold War bunker, but smaller, it has nothing resembling a turntable—much less a glass tray. A row of numerals and a series of worn metallic bumps run...
