Where would the microwave show be without the many generous donations made by fans? It is because of donations that many of the expensive and/or obscure objects were able to be microwaved. Here, all the people who kindly donated items will be acknowledged. This list will only include items that were actually microwaved and (in rare cases) non-microwaved items that were credited in a real (non-donation) episode. Keep in mind that all of the microwaves were donated by unknown Craig's List users, except for Unnamed, who came from the Emerson College trash; Zelda, who was donated by viewer Geoffrey Jones; Beth/Miss Havisham, who was donated by viewers NoNameRockBand and Ziphorah14; and Cinnamon, who was donated by Jonny Paula himself.

Season 1Edit

All donations from season one were comprised of various Emerson College students’ abandoned garbage. The microwave, Unnamed, also came from Emerson trash.

Season 2Edit

The only donation was the dynamite, which came from Jon’s dad, Johnathan Paula. Everything else was bought, except the hard drive, which used to be Jon’s.

The majority of the items was bought at either Wal-Mart or Stop and Shop or were old things of Jon’s, but this is the season when donations began.
