    Oven for things that need to be cooked, microwave for things that need to be heated.

    But you get no "crispiness" in the microwave.

    What kind of pizza was it, and what did you have the oven on? The kinds of oven/microvave pizza I usually get take 5-10 minutes at 400*F in the oven and is great.

    Yeah, I hear ya, but crappy or not, I still like my cheese a little toasted. Bt you're right, for a quick bite the microwave will do. A pot pie, however, must be done in the oven. I would never try to cook any type of roast or something in the microwave.

    I usually use the microwve but rarely on the high setting. I find that the use of the mid setting for a longer period of time warms the food more thoroughly and the heat lasts longer.

    I use the micorwave for quick things, the grill for almost everything else. Standing around the oven drinking beer just ain't the same.

    George Forman grill and Ronco rotissere and the outside grill.
    It is kinda cool to put that burrito on the intake manifold and drive to work. A couple of years ago at thanksgiving time at work, we were heating stuff up on cars on the lot. A CR-V has a nice flat valvecover to set those aluminum pans on.
