Microwave suggestions

puzzlefanJune 10, 2014

We are on microwave 3 from Sears, (two Kenmore and one sharp) all failed within the warranty. I am about to forget the warranty and find a brand worth buying (1.2 cu ft) Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Please let us know if these are countertop or over-the-range (OTR) microwaves? If a countertop model, I like the Panasonic Genius Prestige line. Though frankly, no MW these days is going to have a long life, probably 3-5 years is average. But if you've had three MWs all fail within one year, that's really odd.

If you are talking about OTR MWs, those tend to have shorter lives due to the exposure to the heat of the range. But if yours are all failing within a year, and they are OTR, I would say your range is too powerful to have an OTR MW. An OTR MW should only be placed above a range with lower btu's than the "semi-pro" ranges.

Do you M/W a lot of Pop Corn?
I've found that frequent popcorn popping is really hard on a M/W. Especially popping back to back bags.
