I've developed a bad habit over the last couple years of setting cooked dishes on unused burners, since every single square inch of the counter is usually covered. Tried that with the bacon this morning and turned on a pot to boil. Came back a couple minutes later to discover I'd turned on the wrong burner, and that smoke was wafting from the blackened mess on a spot on the plate. While the bacon and paper towel were destroyed in this way (I admit, it's shameful), the bottom of the plate was barely scorched! Go Corningware!

Note that this does not work with Pyrex. One Christmas, my mother was making a turkey and some stuffing. She had each of these in a Pyrex pan, with the stuffing on an unused burner on the glass-top stove, and lit another burner for something else, gravy I think.

Of course she actually lit the stuffing's burner and didn't know it. From the other room I hear this loud "CRISSH!!" followed by "Ahh, SHIT!!"

The Pyrex dish completely exploded, not only ruining the stuffing by spraying it all over the room, but getting shards of glass all over the turkey. We went to a Chinese buffet that year.

I've had that experience too. Fortunately, we had already excavated the meat to safety. I got a minor cut.
