An all round wonder machine
Same on my boat. I use the microwave more than the propane
stove, especially when Im alone on board. Tremendously useful. But as others have said - it depends on how you cook.
I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned how useful they are for reheating food
. They can also even help save water
since you often cook or reheat in the dishes you serve or eat from, instead of pots or pans.
As Jedi said in an earlier post, you need a 2kW (more or less) inverter
to run a 1000 watt microwave, plus appropriate battery
