You'd think it's an optional item, and in a way it is. It takes longer to reheat things in the oven and heating water may not be an issue on the stove, but the microwave is essential for the lazy reheater.
Ours went kaput a couple of weeks ago and we just haven't found one at the wattage and price we would like to see.
I like to have leftovers and those little Green Giant veggie packs, but I really don't want to wait a half hour for something that takes no more than 5 minutes in the microwave. I have had to make my tea (essential for someone with a head cold like me) in a pot on the stove and hope that I don't spill it all over the counter.
Although the microwave is a splurge item, it makes life so much easier. I love my microwave and hate living without one. So we are on the search for a new one, but are patient enough for a good deal.
Perhaps one day I will own a pie server and a potato masher also.
