I have enjoyed having the convenience of a microwave in my RV for heating water for coffee or leftovers, the same as anyone else. It's great for cooking baked potatoes really fast, too. But when it comes right down to it, if I could only have one cooking vessel, I really don't need anything other than some fire, and my lightweight, flat-bottomed wok with lid. I can fry steak and some eggs in it. I can make pancakes or apple fritters in it. I can boil water for coffee in it. I can cook soups, stews, or chili in it. Want fried chicken? How about a tuna melt? It does a great job. Heck, you can even cook Chinese food in it, if you want to. If I'm camping locally, I'll always bring a cast iron skillet, but if weight is an issue, it's my lightweight, flat-bottomed wok every time. This one was cooked in a cast iron skillet, but I do this same mixed berry dutch baby in my flat bottomed wok quite often. That with a side of bacon is one of my son's favorite breakfasts when we're camping. Sometimes I use apples instead, or make it savory with cheeses, meats, and herbs. Make it on the stove, in the oven, or over a camp fire. Delicious every time. Since I only need one pot in which to cook anything at all, it saves a lot on space. And with all that extra space, gee... I've got room for a microwave.
