On a lot of foods, the instructions (even the ones that have "... half
way through" too late in a sentence) start "Empty contents into a
microwaveable container, cover and vent." The "and" suggests these are
two actions, and I'm a bit puzzled what the "vent" part means. I have a
plastic cover (about the size of the turntable, presumably
deliberately); it has a row of little square holes around the ridge, but
there's no mechanism to cover them, so they're always "venting"?

Some such containers have covers which *do* have a hole which can be
covered or opened (some sliding or rotating mechanism). This can be
invaluable to my POI for transporting food by bicycle (vent closed) to
an elderly gentleman she feeds once a week (her D.Phil supervisor). Once
there she can reheat the food in his microwave (vent open) and in the
same container.

Ah - a good explanation! Thanks. Now you mention it, I have seen such
containers - in assorted shapes and sizes - in Lakeland.

Often containers are microwaved with just a layer of cling film on top.
If you don't stab a small hole or two in that, the trapped air will
inflate and redecorate the microwave's interior with the contents.
