    Only a few seconds depending on the strength of your microwave. Peeled and halved. Six to eight seconds on med or med high. I discovered it by accident when I was jonesin' for some guacamole and my avocado was hard.

    They've been studied quite a lot but I never saw any concrete health hazards from microwaves.

    That said, a convection oven will preserve more texture with meats and starches.

    I got a microwave bacon grill today for my boyfriend. The bacon ended up more uniform in texture than when he fries it in a pan. Cleanup was easier than baking it in the toaster oven.

    I don't own any, I don't need any. "Evil" or not, I don't care, I don't need any.

    Sorry, but when it's literally 115F outside and I need to heat something up, there's not a snowball's chance I'm turning on an oven.

    I'll take my chances for that whole 2 minutes out of a 1,440 minute day.

    If people are worried about microwaves, I hope they have also ditched their cell phones and cordless phones and computers and DVRs and wireless routers and...
