So, about a year ago I ditched the microwave. Not a philosophical move, but practical. It lived on top of the fridge, and was hard to get at. Didn't use it much, and wanted the storage. The only time I really miss it is when a recipe calls for melted butter, and I didn't realize ahead of time and I don't want to wash another pan. Now I don't even understand why it was such a necessity. Anyone with a great love for the thing or a similar ambivalence?
