While looking through our Twitter feed we found these kitchen tweets to share with you.In other posts, I have pointed out how Thanksgiving is a busy time for an appliance parts store and for the repair people we serve. People with broken appliances can get particularly anxious about getting repairs done before the holiday. We open our look into Twitter with a sentiment a home owner with a broken kitchen appliance might relate to...
Wish I was full of thanksgiving dinner instead of stress and anxiety
— Olivia Mendes (@livvymendes) October 22, 2014
Some people can get so worked up about holiday preparations that strange thoughts enter their mind...
Had a dream that I made Thanksgiving dinner in an EasyBake Oven and then was eaten by a tanning bed. Normal.

To save some time, a portion of the holiday cooking can be done with a microwave. This tweeter plans on shaving a few seconds off of the cooking time...
Life is too short to cover stuff in the microwave
— Owl City (@owlcity) October 22, 2014
From the sidelines I know that plan won't save time, because any time you save by not covering your food, you are likely to spend later cleaning up the mess...
Life is too short to scrape crusty exploded spaghetti-os off the inside of the microwave
— Owl City (@owlcity) October 22, 2014
Really though, carelessness in the kitchen can lead to bigger problems than a mess to clean up...
Watching a show about house fires when suddenly I smelled burning. Realized I left my eggs on the stovetop. Homemade smellevision!

A Safe-T element on the range might have prevented THAT burnt dish, but since they don't make Safe-T elements for ovens, you really still need to be paying attention in the kitchen...
Completely forgot I had a cake in the oven, and found it smoking and totally black a few hours later! 😣

No really, just pay attention...
I'm the definition of stupid. I literally just sat my hand down on a hot burner cuz I wanted to know why it said "hot cooktop".. DUH LINDSAY

Your not stupid, Lindsay, just careless. Like this tweeter...
Just tried to microwave something, realized too late I set it for 1 hour instead of 1 minute. I have lost the intelligence high road.

If you are careful, and pay attention, the odds are you will succeed in creating a great holiday meal for your guests. Some of them will thank you like this...
All I'm doing after thanksgiving dinner is sleeping and watching football
— Guardian (@MIDNITEsMADNESS) October 22, 2014
If you have a dishwasher you will probably think to yourself...
I guess ill never understand putting dirty dishes in the sink before you go to bed. Especially when the dishwasher is not even a foot away
— Connor Halliday (@c_halliday12) October 15, 2014
Of course if your dishwasher is out of order, then you might be thinking something more like this...
The dishwasher broke so I just had to wash an entire load of dishes by hand like some kind of normal person from the 1950's.

After over 20 years of watching people get anxious as they scramble to get things fixed in the kitchen at the last minute, let me offer some free advice. You can head off some potential holiday frustrations by getting any appliances that need servicing fixed NOW! Don't wait until the last minute. That way you can enjoy your Thanksgiving with one less thing to cause you stress and anxiety.
This post was meant as a fun reminder to get your appliances repairs started sooner rather than later. If YOUR appliances are working great, we don't want this blog post to be a total waste of your time so here are a few tips for using your microwave, as well as one thing you definitely should NOT try at home...
