    First of all, you should all know there is nothing “healthy” about Microwaving anything! It destroys all vitamins in most foods as it is “nuclear radiating” whatever you put in it. I suggest infrared convection cooking for heating leftovers or cooking any food. The NuWave oven is an excellent alternative. My first one lasted 3 yrs, (has a 1 yr warranty)it was so worth it that I bought another one and can’t live without it!!
