I’m 35 years old - my family got our first microwave when I was about 7 or 8. So I have very little memory of the work that went into the simple task of warming up leftovers. But I’m constantly amazed at how easy it is to simply warm up that bowl of soup, give that cup of coffee a quick 30 second warm-up when it goes lukewarm, or defrost something out of the freezer. I cannot imagine life without a microwave. Yet, I know people that don’t have one. My ex-girlfriend didn’t have one - said she didn’t want to pay money for something she could do on the stove. I just couldn’t comprehend that.
So, what about you?
