Default Microwave

Do you have/use one?

They say radiation can cause cancer, damage dna, destroys nutrients in the food you are heating up,etc..


Thoughts on the matter?

Food for thought....

(Dont put the food in the microwave)

Doesn't damage or alter DNA by its radiation. Does destroy nutrients but so does all type of cooking. If microwaves cause cancer then you better put down that cell phone and stay inside because it's the same type of radiation from phones and what we receive from the sky.

I only use a microwave for popcorn and reheating stuff up. Who cooks with it?

Not really. When microwaves first came out they were touted as the be all end all of modern cooking. You can roast a turkey in 30 min!

It didn't take long for people to discover that food cooked in a microwave looks and tastes like shit. Most people use them to to defrost and reheat food, boil water and make popcorn. Occasionally I'll use mine to fast start a baked potato if I'm pressed for time but that's about it.

obviously not all americans use microwaves as a primary cooking method, but there is no denying that there is a significant portion of america that use microwaves religiously. the percentage of americans who are microwaving is undoubtedly sky-high compared to serbia or wherever fiddy is from.

Microwave sales have been declining steadily.


Quote:
Last year, shipments of other kitchen appliances rose by nearly 8% while microwave shipments fell another 5%, according to data from market research firm Mintel.

Quote:
A bigger factor behind the decline in sales of microwaves is likely that Americans just aren’t using them as much anymore. A shift in eating habits—which favors freshness and quality over speed and convenience—has left a growing number of microwaves dormant on kitchen counters.

^^definitely true in my case
