A recent post about popcorn raised the issue. What do you use your microwave for? I go a little beyond the heating coffee and popcorn, but still pretty limited:
1. Defrosting Meat
2. Defrosting frozen pizza (then into toaster oven)
3. Defrosting frozen bagels -- again, just until cold, then into toaster oven.
4. Heating up soup
5. Melting Butter (this is a big plus -- but cover bowl with paper towel).
6. Steaming corn.
