I also use my microwave for warming milk and melting butter when baking. Again, it's efficient. But I also feel like there's less risk that I'll scorch the milk or brown the butter. I find it easier to control the temperature, for some reason. Melting chocolate is another thing that I actually prefer doing in the microwave.
I don't do much actual cooking in the microwave. I still love to make batches of microwaved potato chips and the occasional quick scrambled egg for one. Oh, and popcorn! I'm a microwave popcorn popping fiend. But I haven't really explored much beyond these few things.
What do you make in your microwave? Or have you decided to go microwave-free?
