Microwaves Are Not Faster

Ruth didn’t want a microwave for years. She said she could heat things on a gas stove faster than a microwave. She still can. Ruth believes in a big fire under things. But of course we eventually got a microwave and have worn several out.

I have decided I agree with Ruth. Microwaves are no faster than other devices. When I punch plus one (1) on a microwave the timer seems to take about one minute. I stand impatiently and say things like, “A minute on this thing seems to take about a minute. I thought it was supposed to be fast.” I have checked this carefully. Indeed, one minute on a microwave is no faster than a minute on any other time keeping device. Microwaves are not faster.
