I use two microwave ovens on a regular basis. The user interfaces on them are very different. One seems incredibly logical to me, and the other is completely illogical. I'm throwing the two issues out for a vote, since my friends rule the world.
Poll #1634666 Microwave UI Design

Which button should be the most prominent?

Start
47(81.0%)
Stop
11(19.0%)

There's a "quick minute" button. Should the oven start when you press it, or should you have to hit "Quick Minute" then "Start"?

Start automatically
54(91.5%)
Quick Minute, then Start
5(8.5%)

Time dials are awful, and for reasons known only to microwave oven marketers seem to have made a comeback in the last couple years. I suppose the counterargument is that exact precision in cooking time is unimportant and +/- 15 seconds is probably ok, but still.
