4 Reasons Why I Trashed My Microwave


Image via -

I remember when my family came to my house for Thanksgiving about five years ago and were astounded to find out that I didn’t have a microwave. In fact, when I later went to visit my brother, he packed an unused microwave in the trunk of my car and insisted I take it. The microwave was then promptly stored in the garage for years to come.

I initially quit using microwaves after a former boss (admittedly paranoid dude) told me about the dangers of a microwave and said that he wouldn’t come within a football field of the contraption. That’s when I decided to take a closer look.

Why I Don’t Use a Microwave

1.  Taste: The main, most notable reason that I don’t use a microwave is taste. I’m a foodie that buys high quality, local and artisan ingredients. I’m not about to heat up my pride and joy in a microwave. I think microwaves actually have the innate ability to make unprocessed foods taste processed. Bottom line—if taste matters, the microwave is out.
