I generally only use frozen dinners when I'm too sick to cook, and I
never know when that will be. I used to put what I planned to microwave
into the fridge the night before, but quit when I had to throw out food
that spoiled before I could cook it. It's hard to be ready to fix a
planed meal on time, and some days I can barely even face food,
let alone what was planned.

I'm sorry to hear you're feeling so bad. One of my best friends died several
years ago from cancer-induced starvation. He almost completely lost his
appetite, even to the point of finding many foods bad-tasting.

If there's anything I can do to help, let me know and I'll try.

A high power microwave will cook most meat, but doesn't brown it.
One thing that helps is to cook it about 2/3 of the required time, pour
off the fat and juices, and finish cooking. I cook hamburgers and small
steaks in mine. i add the spices and some dried onions before cooking,
so the steam and juices re hydrate the chopped onions and add their
flavor to the meat.


They used to sell microwaves with browners. Of course, they still make combp
microwave/ Turbo ovens. I could not live without my little turbo oven.
Everybody is amazed who use it. You can cook most anything in
the microwave safely buy covering it and let it steam all the way through.
I would recommend my turbo oven but its not made anymore.
There is no substitute, and I have fixed it once. I'll try to keep fixing it
as long as I can. The burner connections go bad. i have two other turbo
ovens and they don't compare.

Cooking in the turbo oven is the only way, except for charbroil.
I never said a microwave was the best way, allthough a combo
turbo/microwave can be used in turbo mode. It still does not brown properly
cause a turbo/microwave has no exposed radiating elements.

I tried getting the company to start making this oven again. Communicating
with companies like Salton who marketed the Toatmaster consumer grade product,
is next to impossible.
