She’s kinda terrifying, but kinda genius.

No matter what you call her—bent out of shape, fit to be tied, irate—sometimes you just need a pissed-off mom to make you do what you need to do.

That’s where Angry Mama comes in. She’s a 5-inch tall, 4-ounce bundle of pure fury that exists for one reason and one reason only: Your microwave is disgusting and you need to do something about it.

Here’s how to use her:

1. Remove your mama’s head—this sounds very dark, but remember: She is made of plastic and this will not hurt.

2. Fill ‘er up with a mixture of vinegar, lemon juice, and water. Twist her hair and head back onto her body.

3. Stick her in the microwave for seven minutes, then let her hang out in there for an additional two minutes. The steam that comes out of her hair will loosen dried food and make it much easier to wipe off. Also, it makes her look like a very tiny, very angry woman and it’s funny.

The reviews are mixed, but most users seem happy with their Angry Mamas:

“Holy Smokes, this thing really works,” one Amazon reviewer wrote. “My friend got one and I thought it was hilarious. However, it is absolutely perfect for cleaning out the microwave. Ours had a lot of red sauce explosions and one round with this and it wiped clean. And I mean just wiped—no scrubbing at all! It really did make things much easier. I'd recommend this for anyone who hates scrubbing the microwave!”
