A variety of things are cooked in the Nova kitchen. 

There’s one woman from sales who fries mushrooms on the sandwich press. Someone else used to poach fish in the microwave. They don’t work here anymore.

Whole episodes were based around the Tubby Toaster exploding/making bouncy Tubby Toast/overrunning Teletubbyland with Tubby Toast, and it was freakin’ awesome.
