Now if you're wondering, you actually can microwave a turkey. Basically you put the turkey in a microwave oven bag with a small hole for steam to escape, put your microwave at 50 percent power and you cook it for 10 minutes per pound the turkey weights. So if you have a 10 pound turkey, you'd cook it for 100 minutes You also need to make sure the turkey rotates at all times so it cooks evenly. So if your microwave rotates automatically, you're good. Otherwise you'll need to manually rotate the turkey every 15 minutes or so.
But we definitely wouldn't recommend that.
