Hubby's hungry and wants a hot-pocket. I tell him those are self serve, and he pops it in the microwave. I can SEE him from here, I know he did it right. I mean, it's hard to mess up a hot-pocket...

Well it was in the microwave for all of 30 seconds and the little crisper sleeve or whatever it is caught on fire. He opens the microwave and starts blowing on it to put it out. The whole sleeve is melted and burnt, the hot pocket's black and charred, my whole house is full of smoke. 

What in the world... Microwave's fine, I just heated up leftovers to see if it was the microwave or the hot-pocket. That's scary to me.

Wow that is scary! My DS, 10 years old, likes to make those for himself. Now I'm worried that he will burn himself trying to put out a fire.

Hmmm....wonder if they gave you a defective one. I would be worried about the rest of the box.

Yikes!  I'd definitely contact the company (usually can find a number on the back of the box).  It's possible there was a defect in the sleeve or some other problem.
