Two objects? Two of the same kind?
Are they used for a particular purpose?
Are they used for leisure activities? in everyday life? professionally?
Is it relevant where you bought them? from whom? is the prize you payed relevant? abatement relevant? did you buy both at the same time?
Went something wrong with one of them? do you usually use one at a time? two?
Did this really happen to you?

Do they have a particular colour?

Did you have to use two at the same time? one instead of the other one?

Are the objects made out of: metal? partly this wood? paper? cardboard? glass? stone? concrete? tissue? organic material? and partly this plastic? rubber? but none of the others, or so I would hope
Are they longer than 1 mm? 10 mm? 100 mm? in this range 1 m? 10 m? 100 m?
Do they have a particular colour? no, they are multi-coloured, but their colour is not relevant
Are the two objects distinguishable by a glimpse? no by a close inspection? perhaps this not at all? but this is closest: at the time of purchase they look very very similar
Are they related to arts? education? sports? eating? this one drinking? sleeping?
Did you have to use two at the same time? in a sense, but this may mislead one instead of the other one? again, in a sense, but it may mislead
Did you use them yourself? yes
Are any other people involved? no

So they are something to eat? yes tins? yes
If so, is the exact food relevant? well, it would help to narrow it down a little more than tinned food
Did you prepare food? yes

The food: vegetables? fruits? meat? an instant meal? a sauce? a starter? part of the main dish? a dessert?
Is the process of opening the tins relevant?
So I suppose you first opened one tin? and you decided to opened the second one afterwards? because the food was bad? insufficient? not what you expected?
Is the title relevant? i.e. was there some trouble? worries about staying hungry?

Did you foolishly try and cook the contents without first having removed them from the tin ?

Did it explode in your oven?

Where the contents of the tin as you had expected them to be or was it mislabelled?

Did you foolishly try and cook the contents without first having removed them from the tin ? Hard to answer! Very yopish, worth exploring/rephrasing

Did it explode in your oven? no

Where the contents of the tin as you had expected them to be or was it mislabelled? exactly as expected

Did you follow the instructions on how to warm if up (if there were any)? Did you warm it up in a unusual way? Did you make a mistake? Was something wrong with the tin? the food? the oven?

Did you use the second tin in any way without opening it? say you read the instructions on it?
Did the trouble happen before the tin was in the oven? during? after?
Was the trouble related to: pain? waste of food? waste of energy? waste of time? damage of anything?

Did the trouble happen before the tin was in the oven? during? this after?
Was the trouble related to: pain? waste of food? waste of energy? waste of time? damage of anything? not really any of these, but the last is closest

A short side-step to the solution now.

The relevant information you read on the second tin: temperature of the oven? the duration?
Did the food boil over?

Did you forget how long the tin was supposed to stay in the oven?
Suppose you had no second tin would you:
Have done anything wrong in the preparation?
Have taken the tin out of the oven (just to read the instructions) burning your fingers?

Did you forget how long the tin was supposed to stay in the oven?
Suppose you had no second tin would you:
Have done anything wrong in the preparation?
Have taken the tin out of the oven (just to read the instructions) burning your fingers? Yes! And that will do, apart from one little detail:


*** SPOILER ***

Actually, it was a Fray Bentos chicken and mushroom pie, which I popped into a hot oven, forgetting to check the cooking time. For some reason best known to the makers, the cooking instructions were on the bottom of the tin. Luckily, rather than taking a scalding hot pie out of the oven and peering under it, I remembered that I'd bought a second one.

Thanks for playing! My other puzzle has gone quiet, so I'll post a recap.
