Angry Mama Microwave Cleaner

I don't usually write about cleaning products here, mostly because I think cooking is a whole lot more than cooking. Cleaning has to be done, but ... yawn.

However, the Angry Mama Microwave Cleaner from NewMetro Design amused me enough to want to tell you about it. It's simple, really. You rip mama's head off, add white vinegar and water to the designated lines, and microwave mama on high for 5 minutes.

Steam comes out of mama's head - which all by itself is really amusing. But the deal is that that vinegary steam helps loosen the splashes and splatters in your microwave, so you just wipe it down.

The little bit of vinegar water left in mama can be poured out and used to do a little extra cleaning inside the microwave, or outside.

I can hear you saying that you can simply put vinegar and water into microwave-safe mug and just microwave that. But think about it. When you've accidentally boiled something for too long in the microwave, what happened?

Yeah, it boiled out of the container and left a puddle.

Since the Angry Mama is sealed with holes on top, you get a lot of steam rather than a lot of boiling over.

Yes, it's not the most essential thing in the kitchen, but it's useful and funny, and if you prefer using natural cleaners, this works well.

If you had a bad day at work or you're annoyed with a family member ... well, this is a really safe way to vent. If you know what I mean.

Who's it for: People with microwave ovens and who like quirky cleaning tools.

Pros: It works. It's amusing. It's might even be a stress reliever.

Cons: Not actually necessary.

Wishes: None I can think of.

Source: I received this from the manufacturer for the purpose of a review.


  1. That is hilarious, and pretty cool at the same time! I think it would be an excellent way to get my kids to clean the microwave. After all, it's usually THEIR mess that needs to be cleaned up!

    1. I don't often giggle about doing any kind of cleaning, but I have fun with this. Into the oven with you [insert name of victim}!!! Bwaaa haa haaaaa!!!

  2. I had orange stains inside my microwave, and the smell of burned popcorn! I used Angry Mama and it seemed to help a little. At least my rag I used to wipe it out was orange. But when I used it a second time it shorted out my microwave.

  3. Good news. I unplugged my microwave and left the door open for a few hours. It works again. But if I use angry mama again I will do it only once and leave the door open a while after!

    1. Well, that's a good thing. Too much water in the microwave probably isn't a good thing, but it can get pretty wet in there just from cooking!
