Are there any cooking/preparation methods that confuse you or anyone you know to the point where there's refusal to make the dish which utilizes that method? I've noticed that some people have minimal use for their oven and stove. Instead, they frequently resort to using the microwave and toaster oven for the majority of their breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Here are some cooking/preparation methods, feel free to add more:
