You pull out the steaming leftover green curry from the microwave oven. You dig into a warm piece of chicken, smiles all around. Then the frozen carrot stick nearly breaks your teeth. If only you had bought your oven after an evaluation from the Choice kitchen lab where the testing equipment ‘hedgehog’ can tell you exactly how evenly food has been heated in a microwave. From improving safety standards to ingredient labeling, consumer advocate group Choice has given the power back to customers. This is an extraordinary showcase of the mundane things we take for granted.

Until 15 May 2011. Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris St, Ultimo. ($5-$10 with admission) powerhousemuseum.com
