We don’t have a microwave. I urge you every time you use your microwave during the next few days to imagine what you’d do without it. I’ll tell you something: it takes a lot longer to heat things up without one. First, the oven has to warm up. Then the food does. It no longer takes five minutes to heat up yesterday’s leftovers. Soup? Has to go on the stove. I don’t know what the method for reheating food in the oven is, and I don’t want to know. I twist the knob to somewhere between 175-190ºC and put the food in. Check it every 10 minutes or so.
We also don’t have a toaster. This doesn’t matter a lot except when we’re making toast. I’ve left a few pieces of bread in the oven long enough for them to turn to stone, yet they still haven’t browned one iota. I’ve slowly figured it out, for the most part. I try different temps, etc. This is how I live now.
