We don't have one. I grew up without a microwave so I don't miss it at all. I've lived in a few places that had them and I pretty much never used them, so it's not really something I've ever considered getting.

Ours was $10 on craigslist and it is amazing. Perfect popcorn in 2 minutes. <3

We use it daily. To reheat stuff, thaw stuff, cook stuff, etc. Lasagna is 10 minutes in the microwave, or 90 in the oven. To me, they taste the same. It's a no-brainer.

Technically if you count the fact that I turn on the light or the vent on the microwave (mounted over the stove) I use it multiple times every day haha.

We use ours a lot. Everybody works different hours here so when they get home they heat up their dinner in it. I also cook my vegetables in it.

We got one as a wedding present, then when we bought the house it also came with a microwave, which I was able to pawn off on some unsuspecting victim.

We have one but don't use it a whole lot. We will do steamed edemame in it, I melted some queso dip the other day, sometimes I'll heat up soup. I do use the microwave at the office a lot to heat up leftovers for lunch

Yes I have one. I don't use it a whole lot, mostly because I don't eat in my apartment a whole lot...

We use ours a LOT. Mostly to reheat leftovers, make baked potatoes, steam veggies, and thaw food because we never remember to take stuff out for dinner beforehand. I use it mainly for the leftovers, which is a lot.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

My response is misleading in the poll, so I thought I would explain.

I selected "Yes, but use it rarely", which is technically true... it is a combination microwave/convection oven, and I only use the microwave to melt butter and heat water for the most part. The rest of the time, I'm still using the appliance, but using the convection oven capability to reheat food and occasionally cook meals. (Our particular model has a cook book function. It came with a recipe book, and I just have to punch in a correlating number to bring up that dish's cooking program. LOL)

In short, I use the appliance all the time, but not usually the microwave function.

You can use something else to heat up food? We went without an oven/stove for a long time... that was fine. Couldn't live without a microwave. XD
