Is there a nickname for microwaves?

I know that a refrigerator can be called a fridge. What about microwaves? There must be some shorter word that we could use and not have to type out microwave all the time?

Actually I guess that microwave is already short for microwave oven, but still there must be something shorter.

Nothing really grabs me. I was thinking about this question earlier-  how about Mike? Put the cup in the Mike?
