I do not want to live without my microwave. I use it daily... multiple times. But to be fair... I use my stove/oven just as much.

When asked what she thought of the microwave, Julia Child was quoted as saying, "It's good for drying out wet newspapers."

I usually reheat my tea every morning since I like it really hot and it cools fast. But other than that, I rarely use it.

Can I ask why some of you use it to heat water? Isn't electric kettle faster&easier option?

As a college student pretty much every meal I consume outside the dining hall has at least one element (if not the whole thing) that has been microwaved.

I'm trying to use it less. Some nights, it's hard to get motivated to cook after work and class. :oops:

I don't have one anymore. It took a while to get used to being without one, things take a little longer but I don't mind.

I don't own a microwave. I live in an apartment and in order to save space I got rid of it. I never used it anyway.
