My little sister is working on making a couple Christmas presents (she buys most of her's, but we'll make a craftster out of her yet! Cheesy) and she ran into a bit of a problem. She wants to give a microwave heat pad to our grandma because she's constantly using a heating pad, ice packs, etc. The problem is that the only microwave they have is completely ancient and in the basement.

Is it possible for them to heat the pad up using a toaster oven, which they do have, instead? And can you use the pad as an ice pack by putting it in the freezer? (I'm assuming it would retain the coldness, but thought it best to ask about that too!)

You can put them in the freezer, but I wouldn't put it in the toaster over. I think it would catch fire. Would it be possible for someone in your family to get them a thrifted microwave that works better than their old one? I've seen them at garage sales for $10-20.

Thanks for the info. I don't know if getting them a new microwave would help, since part of the reason their current one is in the basement is because they have no room in their kitchen for it in the first place...
