Microwave Cooking


Many students at UC Davis are busy with class and simply don't have the time or energy to make an elaborate meal. Therefore, microwave meals are a popular option. Much of what passes as "microwave cooking" is actually reheating or thawing—but there are actually many foods that you can cook in the microwave that work pretty well. And if you're on campus, you can do your "cooking" in one of several campus microwaves.
