I get the odd look quite often when someone sees my kitchen and they don't see a microwave. I have people offer them to me as if my kitchen is not complete without one. I went apartment shopping and they try to tell me how great the kitchen is due to the fact it comes with a microwave. Am I the only one who does not use one? I have worked in a few restaurants that didn't have one in the building. I also get odd looks as a single man with a teapot on the stove. Its the best way to heat water without a microwave. So who else CAN live without a microwave? What kitchen gadget can't you live without?
