Should I Buy a Microwave?

Here’s a strange thing you might not know about me – the last time I owned a microwave was in 2008. Yup it’s been 9 years since we had one in our house, and neither of our kids has ever known life with a microwave.[A pink microwave, this is too cute!] To be honest, even […]

Here’s a strange thing you might not know about me – the last time I owned a microwave was in 2008. Yup it’s been 9 years since we had one in our house, and neither of our kids has ever known life with a microwave.pink-microwave[A pink microwave, this is too cute!]

To be honest, even before we got rid of the microwave I didn’t use it much. I’ve never been a fan of the way the texture of food changes when you heat it in a microwave, so I’ve generally avoided them.

We didn’t really make a conscious decision to live life sans microwaves, it just happened. During one of our many moves we decided to donate our rather large and clunky microwave and planned to get something smaller later, but we never felt the urge to buy a replacement. Since then we’ve heard a lot of different thoughts on how radiation effects food and I’ve become hesitant to bring a microwave back into our lives. However, I did think about it yesterday.

These days I do a lot more batch cooking, and we are often reheating meals for lunch. I’ve been thinking how having a microwave would make the process so much easier and quicker. A number of friends have told me that microwaves have come a long way, and the food quality is not affected so much in the newer models. I did a bit of research and also found that some of the more high-end models can also work on steam. 

So here I am considering the one kitchen appliance I was sure I didn’t need! What do you think, should I get a microwave? Does it make your life easier? Would love to hear your thoughts, leave me a comment and help me decide!

    I say don’t do it! I want to get rid of mine, it’s such a crutch. I despise what it does to the food taste and texture especially eggs and all meats.
