comment Is it more economical to use hot water before boiling or to bring cold water to a boil?
If the cost of electricity is higher than gas, and the stove and water heater are both gas powered. It could be less "economical" to use the microwave.

"Any visually acceptable ideas", this makes this question subjective. There's no way for an answerer to know what is "visually acceptable" to you.

There's too many variables involved, and the margins are far too thin to come to a definitive conclusion. This will completely depend on the type of water heater, fuels used by both appliances, the cost of each fuel, the cost of water, the cost of time, etc.
