Yeah, microwaves get a lot of bad press because of what we usually reheat in them. I don't often use ours because I just prefer to bake or roast, but when I can't be bothered to boil sweet potatoes/other root veg I just microwave them.
I never use it, I think it tastes like crap so I always use slow cooking / re-heating.

I've read an article (a while ago) about a study with young kids who had warm milk from the stove or from the microwave and the microwave kids had significantly less muscle tonus.
I think it does something to the food. I own one, use it everyday but also try to use the stovetop as well when I have a few extra minutes.
