Oh, im not saying its not clever. It is, very! very simple as well. Im 90% seasonal, for me it would be a hassle to store it.

Very clever, indeed! We store one of our couch pillows in the microwave - but I like this a lot, too!

Isn't the plate the mechanism that turns the food when cooking??

OK, I skipped right over this post at first because I wasn't looking for microwave noodle recipes. Came back to it and glad I did. Great low cost tip.
You could even borrow from the baby sock on the antenna crank idea and store the noodle in sight of the drivers seat when you take it off as a reminder to "install" before moving.

Good alternate approach ... we just wrap our turntable in a dish towel, turn it upside down, and put it right back in the microwave since we usually take it out to clean it prior to leaving the campsite anyways. I know what you are sayin about indexing the glass plate on the drive cog though.

I think that's called using your noodle. OK, OK I tried.
