<p><span style="font-family:'lucida grande', tahoma, verdana, arial, sans-serif;font-size:11px;line-height:10px;">I've been thinking we should get rid of our microwave. This adds fuel to that argument.</span></p>

<p>We stopped using ours a year ago and, I've never missed it.  I store my pot lids in it now.  </p>

<p>I've never had one. My mom brought me up without one, and when I went out on my own I never bought one. Life is simpler without it.</p>

<p>Snopes did a piece on this test. They didn't have these results. I'd still like to get rid of my microwave, but my husband isn't supportive of that.</p>

<p>But you can stop using it.  That's what I did.  My DH didn't want to get rid of it, but it turned out once I stopped using it, so did he.  After about a year of it sitting on the shelf unused I pulled it out and stuck it in the basement and he didn't notice for ages.  We haven't had one for years now. </p>

<p>My favorite things about no microwave are not worrying about it and saving the counter space!</p>

<p>Oddly, though, family members get sort of annoyed when they want to reheat tea or coffee. We have multiple family members offer to buy us one. <span><img alt="irked.gif" id="user_yui_3_4_1_2_1329588595758_167" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/irked.gif"></span></p>
