I generally let any sort of egg cook so the bottom is firm, and then add 1 or 2 teaspoons of water the pan before trying to get a spatual under it, which loosens the egg from the pan. By the time the egg is cooked the water has boiled off.

Okay, so this is something my fiance's mother showed me and to this day I am forever grateful!

Because of her I now know how to microwave/scramble eggs.

Believe me, it isn't at all as gross as it must sound. They actually come out fluffier than if you were to do it via frying pan, and they don't burn!
Here's the stuff you'll need and the steps. It's the simplest way I've ever made an egg. Hand on my heart. Teasing

Stuff you'll need:
2 eggs (or more if you want)
Milk (a little less than a half a cup)
1 fork (for stirring / whisking --you could use a whisk if you wanted)
1 microwavable bowl (I use a little plastic cup type thing that's microwave safe, but I've also used a china bow, before--whatever you think will be big enough for 1 or 2 eggs)

Steps:
1) Crack both eggs into your microwaveable bowl.
2) Add milk, a little less than a half a cup. I myself never measure, buy if you want to work out a system you can
3) Whisk the eggs and milk together with a fork or whisk. Make sure to get a lot of air in there, to make them light and frothy.
4) Put your eggs into the microwave and heat them for 1 minuet (don't put the fork or whisk in the microwave)
5) After 1 minuet take them out and whisk them again until they're broken up.
6) Put them back into the microwave, heat them for another minuet.
7) Take it out, repeat step 5
6) Put it back in for just 30 seconds this time
8) Take it out and WITH A CLEAN FORK stir slightly to break it up, then chow down.

You can add cheese on top and wait til it melts too, which is how I sometimes do it.

Hope this helps! Lemme know how your egg-making goes ;P

crack open a egg in a bowl and cover it with a plate and/or wrap. put in the microwave for 3 minutes. and you have cooked egg.
same with a potato. whole or sliced (results in potato chips)

you are already two levels up. congrats. Teasing

Simple dishes can also be good dishes.

Three minutes? That's much too long. The egg will have foamed and overflowed the container if it isn't big enough and created a mess in the microwave. If the bowl was large enough, then it'll just end up cooking onto the bowl and be a tough clean up job when washing (dishwasher isn't going to do it). When microwaving eggs, go 10-20 sec at a time and watch it, stopping when it becomes fully cooked.

You get cooked but soggy potatoes - not chips - when microwaved.
