The benefit of being able to cook food in a slow cooker is enormous though. A microwave may not be able to cook decent food sometimes. If they do not have a decent plan, they may be responsible for getting their own food and this helps with some basic staples. A slow cooker can cook a lot of different meals and I think it is more valuable than a microwave when living on a budget or paycheck to paycheck.
yikes, sounds like a nightmare. Hopefully soon I can get an idea of what making meals will be like there so I can make a decision on appliances
