A microwave came with our Casita, in the 2 years we owned it we only used the microwave as a fancy bread box. Plus every time we connected to shore power the damn clock would flash

Yeh, who's in a hurry when camping? Camping is supposed to be relaxing!

I agree, we don't have one and wouldn't use one. I do have a small cheap toaster (not toaster oven) because the kids love raisin/cinnamon toast in the mornings. It's simple and they can operate it without hurting themselves. Not ready to let them fire up the camp grill/stove on their own yet.

Substitute honey for that jelly, and you have the worlds best food. At least, this is what my kids told me when they were wee bairns. This and waffles was about all I made for them as kids, and they thought I was the best cook in the family.

We always are trying to think about how to minimize weight and "stuff" when camping. We use one of the old camp toasters and I have gotten pretty good with it. We are ordering a trailer and decided to go without a microwave. We make coffee using an old aluminum Mirro drip pot where we heat water in a pot on the stove and pour it into the top of the drip pot. Makes excellent coffee. We decided we could live with reheating on the stove top.

Don't have one. Don't miss it. Don't ever plan on getting one. Hardly ever use the one at home.
