The Brave Little Microwave

Because courage isn’t limited to toasters

Microwaves are mighty. You may scoff at my strength as a microwave, but I have more power than a lot of things. I can make something so hot it’ll burn every nerve ending in your tongue, and then fool you to do it again and again. That’s power, my friend. If you had the choice to pick me, the microwave, or your dishwasher to be your second in a duel, who would you pick? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Even set to “pot scrubber” your dishwasher ain’t got nothing on me.

I bravely pop popcorn, heat up your leftover fried rice, and nuke that chicken pot pie that you don’t want to put in the oven ‘cause it takes too long to cook in there. I’m more than brave and mighty, I’m reliable and efficient, too.

My manufacturer, GE, gave me a brushed metal exterior, like the armor of a knight who fights dragons and rescues princesses. Inside me is a turn-table, so the yummy goodness of the food you put in me cooks evenly. And, when I’m microzapping something, little lights come on inside so you can watch. Can your dishwasher do that? Didn’t think so.
