  • I don't have a microwave
    I have an oven, a stove top, and a toaster oven
    We didn't use the microwave much so when we moved we just didn't bring it. I don't even know what I would cook in a microwave anymore. Maybe left overs, but that just dries everything out, it's way better to pop left overs onto the stove or toaster oven. Hmm

  • People always laugh at me because I treat our built-in microwave like an extra cabinet. I do not use a microwave for cooking or heating. It is a timer and a breadbox.

  • The microwave is my friend. My husband uses the oven more than the microwave, even though it takes way longer.

  • I haven't owned a microwave in close to 15 years. I'm not a fan of them.

    If I just heat something up it's on the stove or in the oven. However, I rarely just heat something up. I do not by foods that can just be heated up, and we do not do leftovers (I do not make enough food per meal for there to be leftovers. I do not overcook, I just cook what my husband and I will eat in one sitting.)

  • Microwave.. right until I moved into a house that has a really bad microwave... so it's back to the stove I go!

  • I don't own a microwave. We use the oven because most of the food my children eat is brought into my house raw, not precooked.

  • I never cook in the microwave, but I use it to heat for up all the time. I try to avoid heating anything up in plastic though. I have glass dishes specifically for the microwave and I also buy paper plates for the microwave.

  • We use the microwave most of the time, but occasionally we pop a few things in the oven, just depends on what it is, or how many different dishes we have to heat up.
