People always look at me in awe that I have no microwave, and I always reply with "what would I need it for?" Other than the speedy melting of chocolate for baking, I haven't missed it in 15 years. We have one at work, and in a pinch I'll heat something in it, but I can always tell the difference in the texture and flavor of the food. I say go without it. Incidentally, someone gave me the nonstick foil to try, and (I say this with no information about what kinds of badness might be in the foil) it has been quite nice as a pan liner to reheat stuff that tends to stick on pans in the oven.
