[NEEDS INPUT] Off Grid Living: Some quick meals like drinks can't be used

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.52.100.1020 (64 Bit)
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All of them.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Add "Off-the-Grid" lot trait to a lot and open the "Have a Quick Meal" menu in any refrigerator.
What happens when the bug occurs? Options for making cereal, milk, orange juice, yogurt, and water are grayed out with the tooltip "There is no available microwave."
What do you expect to see? The option to prepare the above quick meals without a microwave.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Yes
Please describe the patch or change you made. Occuring upon patching my game to 1.52.100.1020, testing the new "Off-the-Grid" lot trait.

I apologize if this has already been reported or mentioned, I took some time to search this issue before posting and couldn't find anything. I know new features like this come with some kinks to sort out, so I figured I would report this issue. Since my Sim is able to prepare other perishable food without power (eggs and toast, ham and cheese, etc.) I am not sure if this is an issue with the new lot trait or just a "quirky" feature.

 

Thank you for looking into this!

I noticed this as well but if you have a cooler, you can get a drink from that.
