We have one, I won't use it save for melting cheese, because microwaved food is nasty.

We do not have one and actually we don't miss it at all. It takes a tad longer to re-heat things using the oven, stove or BBQ, but the food tastes so much better.

We do, and use it mostly to heat water or steam veggies.

We don't have one, we haven't had one since the move, and we're not sure if we plan to get one. I was just wondering if we're alone. I do miss it for some really easy fixes but yeah... we're surviving well thus far.

We have one that is mounted in the cabinet above our stove. Mostly it's for the "packaged" type of stuff (veggies, hot pockets, etc) or for defrosting frozen bagels or making popcorn. Not a lot of "meals" are cooked in it. We heat water for tea/coffee/hot chocolate and the kids will make ramen noodles in it sometimes. I also use the kitchen timer on it when cooking something in the toaster oven.

So, it's used daily.

I have one. I don't use it all that often... Mostly just to heat up soup on days where I am starving & dog tired.

I use mine almost daily. I make a lot of OAMC breakfasts to freeze and then reheat them, mostly egg muffins. I also buy meat in bulk and freeze it, so I use it to thaw the meat out before I cook it. Also melting coconut oil or cheese. Aaaaaand bacon. A lot of bacon.

The newer microwave we have at home is so much better than the old microwave at work. It does a much better job of reheating something to warm and not actually "cooking" it further. The old microwave is crappy and tends to jump right from "haha, you thought it wasn't frozen anymore, didn't you?" to "LOL now it's totally overdone." Having a NICE microwave has totally changed my perspective on using the microwave to reheat something.

I would miss it if I didn't have it, but since I'm only feeding me, that changes how I cook and use food. Also being poor changes how I interact with meat, haha. The biggest time I would miss it is in the mornings really, but that's because I am the opposite of a morning person and a few extra minutes of sleep is A Big Deal to me. =P
