I use my microwave a lot. It doesn't heat up the kitchen, and can save a lot time in clean-up.
Here are some more uses:
*sauteeing onions, peppers, celery, etc...put in bowl with butter, oil, or lipid of choice.
*browning ground meat for assorted dishes
*slow simmering spaghetti sauce...no need to worry about scorching.
*cooking bacon, Spam or meatballs
