This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Which kitchen appliance, besides the fridge, do we appreciate the most?

The Council delivers the ruling of microwave, although it was unable to agree on a rationale.

Josh offers this opinion, joined by Job and MC-B:

The microwave allows a hopeless bachelor to prepare actual hot food quickly enough to hit the window between when he first feels hungry (and thus bothers to begin any food preparation) and when his hunger pangs would inevitably overwhelm him (thus causing him to eat out, abandoning whatever was in a conventional oven).


Djere offers this opinion, joined by Chloe:

Over-the-range microwave oven — microwave, fan, light, clock, timer, instant popcorn maker…


David dissents, joined by Connie:

The coffee maker.


Erin dissents:

Mixer. An essential for virtually every recipe.


Steve dissents:

Hands down the dishwasher. It saves so much time and effort, and it gets dishes cleaner too.


Tom dissents:

The stove, the appliance closest to the primal ways of our forebears. Open flame anyone?


Mike played no part in the determination of this issue.

Next time: At what age is a person old?
