Default microwave frying of onions

itty bitty saw Sally selling seashells by the seashore and told us all
about it on 27 Sep 2003 17:17:11 -0700:

In short, unless you have one of those fancy-schmancy microwaves with
a direct heat element in them, no. A microwave won't caramalise the
sugars, so they're never going to brown properly. I wouldn't bother
doing them in the microwave at all myself because it's not really
saving any effort.
