This is where I am. I think my roomies might vaguely want one. But no one wants one enough to pay for it.

For heating things up I just use the toaster oven. I <3 my toaster oven lol.

I use it for reheating stuff. Mostly just for soup I think.

I'm not going to heat up the whole oven just for one little bowl of soup, and my bowls aren't safe to put on an element, which means I would have to dirty up a pot plus a bowl. So I just use the microwave.

I use it to heat up milk for that delicious liquid chocolate I submerse mini marshmallows in, and bacon. It's a critical part of my life.

We have one and I use it a few times a week. There's not many things that don't taste good coming out of the microwave.

I do reheat foods, cook premade dinners (frozen tray foods), those yummy veggie and cheese steam bags, thaw frozen breads.

We have a Microwave Oven, and that Microwave Oven puts out tens of thousands of microwaves, so yes we have microwaves by default.

Because we don't want to pay for one, and we have an oven.

If I really need to use one, I go upstairs and use Megan's. In return, she uses our toaster. Mutually beneficial relationship

We use it to cook those "steam in a bag" veggies, melt butter, and reheat leftovers mostly. Seriously looking into getting a combo microwave/toaster oven though.

We have one (it's mounted above our stove) and we barely use it. If it didn't come with the house, we probably wouldn't have purchased one.

We'll use the microwave for things like melting butter and reheating some leftovers. I prefer to use the stove top for heating things like sauces and soups, and I like to use the toaster oven for reheating pizza and other things like that.

We have one, but only because it came with the apartment. I honesty don't even know how to use it. Which means, besides making popcorn. I never use it.
Like it just dawned on me, I could defrost frozen bread in there. DUH. I DID NOZ EVEN THING OF THIS BEFORE. God the times I've been annoyed at empty bread in the morning.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.
