I got rid of my nuker about 6 months ago after seeing one of the cooking shows' guests (Think it was on Sara's Secrets) who was a vegetarian and nutritionist. She, of course, said raw vegies were the best for getting the nutrients out of what you eat and you get 100% with raw. If you steam them you lose ~ 5%, if you boil you lose ~50%, and if you nuke you lose ~97%. That is when I stopped using it. I did not use it for much anyway, never cooked meat or an entire meal in it (I do not buy frozen or pre-ckaged food) only potatoes, steamed vegies, boiling water and poping corn. Now I eat raw vegetables only and in my salads, except of course you have to cook orange squash, green beans, rutabegas, parsnips and the like. When I do cook vegies I always roast them and they taste so much better than steaming. AS to popcorn, i am now using the old shake the pot method.
