Phew, I could have saved a lot of time and energy peeling these the classic way. Now I am trying to type this comment with burnt fingertips. The middle is perfectly cooked, ready to eat, juicy and tasty. Some advice on the peeling process once they come out of the microwave and how much of the meat is expected to come off with the skin or how to rescue that would have been helpful. Also how do you adapt to different batches? I had seven rather small tomatoes so guestimated 5 minutes. And what is meant by ''high''? My Mum''s microwave''s high is a lot lower than ours at home.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, Tomatoes cooked in any way will always be very hot to touch so allow it to cool slightly. High in a microwave means on 100 %
