    Microwave at Beats

      Hello, I wish to explore he possibility of of improving the microwave situation at 'beats' (and anywhere else they are on campus). I want to start by saying that I like that there is a a microwave capability as it caters for a lot of students who on are on budget, health conscious or just love their own grub. That said the current microwave is just not up to task. There are 2 current issues with the one at beats. First of all, there is only one. There are often queues of people at busy times and for some students they are on a tight schedule. The second issue actually feeds into the first, the microwave does not actually heat food that well which entails longer heating times. The microwave is not the usual spin table type and as such the food does not heat evenly. Eating a meal with hot then cold spots is not an enjoyable experience. I do believe that lunchtime and breaks could be greatly enhanced for those who bring their own food if there was a decent microwave facility.
