DD (age 9mo) is starving and crying in my ear as we speak while the lava-like dinner refuses to cool.

Would it be much, much too insane to whip out the hairdryer and blast it on the cold setting at full power?

Stir and blow, stir and blow grin

Wouldn't a hairdryer spray it round the room?

Shove it in the freezer for a minute, take out and stir, shove it back in, stir & serve?

get a large cold plate, spread it over that thinly, and that will cool it down very quickly smile

I'll never get away with taking it back to the kitchen, she's seen it now.

I also blow upon and wave hand over. So much that my son (26 months) now does that before he eats anything! Even a sandwich. grin

Genius squeakytoy will do that right now.

Another top cooling tip: transfer repeatedly from one cold plate to the other. Obviously only works if you are using china/pottery/type bowls, not kiddie-friendly plastic ones.

My technique for cooling quickly if its a 'mushy' type meal (without wasting electricty in the process!) - spread some of it v thinly over a large dinner plate - cools v quickly- then scoop back into the bowl to spoon it.

The plate thing worked so fast that dinner has actually all been eaten already. TY Mumsnet.

Pudding was going to be rhubarb crumble and custard but on reflection I think a yogurt will do nicely thanks!
