You can buy a microwave that operates on 12 volts. They aren't as powerful as mains voltage ones (600 watts or so, compared to 1500 watts) but they do the trick. You can buy them from places that cater to RVers or mailorder. Here is one example: http://www.roadtrucker.com/12-volt-microwave-wavebox/12-volt-microwave.htm Note that even at 600 watts, the ...
