Newer microwaves don't use much electricity. Unlike the old microwave oven which actually just had heating rods. Microwaves work through thermal induction i.e they only heat the water molucles in said object and that heat dissipation from the thermal inductor unit doesn't really use that much electricity maybe only a couple omhs per hour. The automatic lazy suzan that spins.

Look up "deli style fermented/sour pickled cucumbers" it is fucking delicious, especially in the summer
Also clean off the labels, put a rope handle on the neck and place cylinder candles inside, light and enjoy your candle lit summer evenings with your pickled cucumbers. Goes well with sausage, steak and anything cooked in the backyard.

Nobody posted it yet?

Anyway, anon, I would recommend making your own homemade pickles and preserves. When cucumbers/tomatoes/whatever else you fancy come into season, you can get them dirt cheap at most roadside produce stands. Then, just do some home cooking to make some damn good pickled foods.

Also if you're an /out/ist you could try catching some whitefish and pickling that. Pickled herring is 10/10.

>old microwave oven which actually just had heating rods
Are you thinking of a toaster oven, anon? Microwaves from the 60's I can assure you had magnetrons that generated microwave energy, and they used mechanical timers with knobs to turn them on an off: the original "radar range". Small tabletop ovens with a glass door and heating elements are called toaster ovens, and are still made. Handy for both a quick hot ham 'n cheese sandwich, or can be pressed into service as a reflow oven.

Depending on where you live, you can put them upside down over young plants in the early spring to make a free mini greenhouse and start your garden extra early. Drill drain holes and make it a pot (inb4 sunlight bad for roots, just use short growth plants or indoor plants or spray paint) use it to cultivate cutting of other plants.

That's interesting, yet glass melts at ~1600°C (softening point is way lower, around ~600°C) and you will need quite the furnace to do anything useful.

>>1613545
As long as glass bricks come up solid enough and quite similarly shaped, enough of them could be useful for some interesting projects (mostly walls and fences). And you may save $20k in buying a laser cutter.

You are confusing microwave ovens with toaster ovens. Also, older microwaves were just more robust with gargantuan transformers. They were for the most part the same power usage.
