There are a few things that should NOT be in your kitchen if you want to stay healthy. A microwave oven is at the top of the list.
Did you know that Russia (USSR at that time) never allowed Microwave Ovens to enter their country. The Russian scientists determined that microwave ovens change the molecular structure of the food, rendering it carcinogenic. That means if you eat microwaved food, you can get cancer.
Here is some living proof and an experiment you can actually do yourself to see how destructive microwave ovens are to the things they “cook.” It also lists the 10 reasons you should not have a microwave oven.
I threw out my microwave oven about 20 years ago and never even missed it. I use a toaster oven instead as well as an Instant Pot, Steamer and a wonderful stainless steel electric frypan I bought on eBay. There are a lot of really nice appliances and inventions now that didn’t exist just a few years ago. The Instant Pot is one of them.
