    Does anybody else not have a microwave?

    I'm trying to avoid buying one.

    In your opinion, is it doable? We have a toaster oven.

    My mom went like 3 years without one. And honestly, at this point, DH and I could probably do without one. We make popcorn on the stove and reheat leftovers in the oven anyways.

    Reheating leftovers is really my only concern. And cooking frozen veggies I guess, but I'm sure you can do that on the stove too.

    I don't have one and I don't miss having one. I can reheat anything I want in the oven.

    Ours just died, and we really really want to get a new one. But for the sake of saving money we got a 30 dollar toaster oven rather than a 70+ dollar microwave and we are just... getting by

    Do you notice your electric bill is higher or anything though?

    I didn't until I married DH.

    For the most part I could go without it.
    Being able to heat heat-packs and microwave soap (seriously, try it - use Dove soap) are two things you can't do in a toaster oven. But other than that, you can really do everything in a toaster oven or on the stovetop.

    I'm lost. Why would one microwave soap?

    We didn't have a microwave for the first year together. TOTALLY doable. I reheated leftovers in the toaster oven or in a pan on the stove!

    Didn't notice anything in the electric bill though if that's what you're avoiding.

    It turns into this




    Still perfectly usable, and way fun to watch puff up.
