Totem Posted January 21, 2015 Share Posted January 21, 2015 for all of its high maintenance requirements I simply fail to see why anyone would want a microwave in their RV unless food quality and taste are not of importance. I am sure some people don't care that a microwaved steak tastes like a burnt tire, or a microwaved hot dog like a rubbery split open elastic steamy balloon. Microwaves are for fast guilty reheating of leftovers or popcorn as far as I am aware. I know one can use them to steam vegetables, cook corn etc but one could just as easy do this with propane and with better texture in the end result. Fresh coffee is always better than micro warm up. Then there is the pre-requisites, huge batteries, a running motor, expensive high wattage inverters, generators or the like are now needed just to power the silly box that makes nasty food. Heres a list of things that microwaves do sort of well: (by taste) popcorn instant oatmeal instant rice warm up left overs. But lets think about this, because the microwave takes up space, weight of its pre-reqs, huge power loads is it even worth it? You are on vacation, retired or on living in a non traditional home, why not take the time to jiffy pop, cook rice on the stove or feed spot the leftovers and make something fresh? The only reason I can think of is kids; and mine are so picky they wont eat stuff the first time its cooked let alone after being rubbery reheats. Does any one out there that uses these things have any good reasons for them , recipes etc? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
