Officially microwaveless! Heated my coffee on the stove, lol

Posted by   + Show Post
Our appliances all pretty much died at the same time. We moved into this house a few months ago and one by one they all died.

Instead of replacing the microwave over the oven, we got double ovens. They were installed over the weekend.

At first I was standing there kind of feeling lost bc I didn't have a 20 sec place to heat up my cup ... But I poured it into a small pan and heated it up and it took maybe 3 minutes.

Anyone else ditch the microwave?

I usually will pull whatever out of the freezer and put in the fridge to defrost when I use my frozen stuff. Even when I had a microwave. I was awful at defrosting it in there bc it always cooked around the edges and made meat gross.

My mom did. She has a small (I mean tiny!) kitchen. She says she doesn't miss it. I have pondered ditching it, too. What about defrosting meat, though? I guess not everyone uses the microwave for that but that is,one of the things that held me back.

We didn't even last a week when our coffee maker broke. Went out and immediately bough a $7 one at the PX just to hold us over until we get a better one. Coffee is serious business around here.

I get what you meant now though. It was just confusing to read lol

Quoting Hyman:

I came home with a coffee and funny enough my coffee maker decided to get clogged about a week ago and I haven't made the jump to buy a new one lol. So yeah. It's a bad month or so in appliance history for me ;)

But I had to warm it up and I stood there like ... Now what. Lol.

Quoting VannaMae307:

We didn't have a microwave for a long time, about a year. I got used to reheating things in the oven, I still do it because it makes the reheated things more juicy and not so fried and dried out.

You lost me on the coffee part though. Your coffee went cold in your cup and you reheated on the stove? I would have just made fresh coffee, in that case.
