Re: Microwave Ovens
We use ours, 24/7....... as a bread basket.
Funny enough, it really is an excellent place to store bread aboard. Keeps the moisture/air exchange down and bread or bagels last substantially longer. I've also read that some use it as a faraday cage to prevent handheld electronics from lightening hits, although, I'm not sure that works.
We do use ours on occasion to cook microwave bacon, which I would never traditionally cook aboard in the oven or on the stoptop, or to warm pre-made meals.
When out on a cruise, we always have a couple pre-made dinners, from a local grocer, in the back of the fridge. They aren't gourmet, but they are pretty good. They're fresh, not frozen and come in a microwaveable container. When it's blowing stink and the boat is pitching and rolling, it's nice to just stick something in the secure microwave, rather than watching the stove gimbal all over. As a kid, those conditions simply meant a cold sandwich for dinner. I find a warm meal to be a huge moral booster, in prolonged crappy conditions.
