It's not dangerous at all

all that is happening is you are super heating the grape and it became plasma (Not sure about this but i think it could cause cancer)

put the grapes in an upside-down glass and it will catch the plasma. use a clear glass glass

try putting a match under a glass in a microwave... fun but very un-safe.

author

what happens?

author

same thing here cept its alot cooler and will explode.

author

how about a whole book of matches?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

author

Sounds alot more fun =P

OR how bout one of those boxes of 250 matches all in at once =P

dont try that and if you do it wasnt my idea.

author

only 250, I have like 5 boxes of 500 in my closet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

author

Thats pretty cool, but 2500 is nothing compared to the 4000 that my friend and i couldve used before =P

instead we make explosives out of them, and i blew up my hand and had to waste a saturday at the hospital =(

author

I blew a lighter in my hand and spent the rest of the day watching AVP while light headed from loss of blood and the sight of a blown up hand.

author

wow, that cant be any fun,

only my fingers were hit, so i didnt really have to deal with much of a sight but wow, it hurt alot.

author

some things just don't work, especially when it said not to do it on the package

Now put a glass over the grapes!!!!!!!!

author
RaRa4Life (author)2008-03-27

the reason the grape does it is b/c grapes produce natural alchohol

skyflyer02 (author)2008-02-14

WOW! That's cool! But does it screw up your microwave?

Plasma is the final state of matter.

author
joemonkey (author)2007-03-09

author
gizmomaster (author)2007-03-06

I admit I got the images on google image but I had no idea that http://www.pmichaud.com/grape/ exisisted, my neighbor taught this trick to me. Sorry if I caused any problems.

Did you actually do this or just copy this off the internet? The microwave & bunch of grapes are obviously not yours, but the other two I recognise from someone else's page(s) on grapes & microwaves.

Lesson one:

If you can find it on the internet, so can everybody else, and you will get called out for copying it.



"This is my first instrucible so dont be to harsh."

Uh, it's not exactly 'yours', now is it? Take a look at this forum post of mine and see what people think of this disclaimer.

Saying "It's my first" is not an excuse for a half-stolen, poorly written instructable. You have an unlimited amount of time to edit text and get your own pictures, so don't go copying someone else's work.

In my experience, when stuff burns doesn't gas and other materials tend to be created? Does anyone know of the side effects of doing this, if any? Have fun on the odorless smell of victory. (If any)

author

Ozone is created from this experiment. But this is certainly unoriginal, because I saw a video of this on youtube, I believe it waas called "Grape balls of fire".
