Maintain Microwave Silence

There really needs to be a way of muting the annoying completion beeps on a microwave oven. Or even a choice. Like phone ring-tones.A soft ‘Ta’daa’ would suffice. Maybe a bit of Brahms. I’m not asking for a talking microwave. That would, I’m sure, quickly lose its novelty factor.

It’s a first world annoyance but shushing at a microwave oven at three in the morning and asking it (OK, failing to catch the final few seconds in order to manually avoid filling the silence with those annoying completion beeps) to be more respectful of sleeping neighbours can test your usual relationship to functional white goods.
