Okay. I have my new microwave taking up a considerable amount of countertop real estate. So far, I've used it to melt cheese on wasa bread.

I know I'll use it to make vegetables, both fresh and frozen, and to reheat leftovers and defrost frozen things, and probably to make some convenience foods. My mom makes iced tea with hers, and that strikes me as useful as well.

I have a microwave cookbook (okay, I have two, but they're the same one - the one my mother-in-law gave me when I was first married, and the one she just gave me in honor of the new toy because in twelve years she forgot she already gave it to me. The only difference is that the new one is paperback.), but it's from 1987. Anyway, I'm not really a cookbook user.

Does any one do any sort of real cooking with them?


Other than reheating/melting cheese on top of things, I use mine for potatoes (I know they're steamed, rather than baked, but it's fast when it's just me).

My dad has had great success in cooking fresh fish in the microwave, though I haven't experimented with that much.

Oh, and it can be very good for melting chocolate, though I suppose that's more of a step towards something else, rather than actual cooking.

Potatoes! How could I have forgotten those? I love nuked spuds - tons of flavor.
