Why do people put a Microwave over top of a Stove?
The most Dangerous place to put a Microwave is over top of a stove, but I see it in pictures of all new houses, or houses with makeovers! Don't you know it is the most Dangerous place to put a Microwave? Imagine, pots on the stove, cooking/boiling water/vegetables etc. Imagine you reaching over top of those hot pots, to put something in your over the range microwave! Reaching over top of boiling water and putting in and taking out the food or water you put into the microwave. Now imagine the unthinkable, taking the cup or dish of hot water or food from that microwave, with the steam from the pots on the burners, burning your hands, then you drop the dish you take out of the microwave, onto the hot boiling pots on the stove, causing the pots to fall over onto YOU! I shutter to think, your kids would put something in the microwave, and taking it out over top of those boiling pots on the stove! Whoever thought of this Stupid Idea , needs their heads examined! And those who follow this idea , are just as stupid! Even putting it on top of the refrigerator, is just as stupid! Put that microwave on on a table or on a counter where it is safe for all, especially for young people!
