New Thing #232: Ironic
This was another childhood idea, and it sounded like fun (and was) but I didn't realize until I was actually doing it that it could have been sort of dangerous. I made a grilled cheese sandwich with an iron. I don't use starch, so I wasn't worried that I'd poison myself, but I did have a glass of water handy in case I was unknowingly using flammable cheese. It wasn't wildly successful, but wasn't a total bust, either. The cheese melted quickly (good thing I had the sandwich on a towel) and the bread charred pretty quickly. In the video, I start to say 'oh no, it's stuck!' before I put the camera down to avoid a breadfire. There were no breadfires, and also no entirely yummy sandwiches. But I would say that in a pinch, the iron will work just fine.
