I have always been slightly suspicious of microwaves and DP is definitly against but there do seem to be reasons to get one. I like porridge but don't have time in the morning and hate washing the pans. DP often has reheated left overs when he gets in late. I could do DDs soup for packed lunches quicker? I could make the MN chocolate cake in a mug
Or are those stupid reasons?
If I was to get one it would have to be cheap and I wouldn't want one that does fancy grilling or anything so what should I be considering and anyone positively recommend any? What are the sainsbury's basics ones like?
My personal preference is for one with a digital timer. Otherwise if you want to do a short reheat, it's hard to get the timings right. I often want to perk up a tepid cup of tea of coffee with a 30 second burst and that's a lot easier to do with a digital timer.
