“The fact that microwaves still do not have a volume button for the beeps is amazing”

Many microwaves do not have a volume button (although some do have one). “Microwaves need a volume button… especially in the mornings. It’s loud enough to wake everyone up! #oatmeal #breakfast” was posted on Twitter by “a new day is on the horizon” on May 6, 2009. “I plan on making millions off of inventing the first microwave with a fucking volume button” was posted on Twitter by “馃憜馃徑He is your leader” on August 11, 2011.

There should be a mute button for microwaves.
For those with napping children and mid night snackers.

Do microwave companies have a legit reason to make the doors/buttons the loudest shit ever

I always said they should have a mute button. Like I don’t need an alarm to remind me I microwaved something for 10 seconds but some times it’s useful.

There should be a mute button on the microwave for when people are sleeping.

Most of them have a button combination to make them silent. Fun fact, before I knew this I opened mine up and pulled out the speaker. Works perfectly and silently (shift worker).
