Microwave with removable carousel
Hi. We need to purchase a countertop microwave oven, but we have one requirement that seems hard to meet.
My wife has serious nerve damage, and she has trouble being around anything that makes noise. One thing that she can't stand is the noise that the big glass trays -- carousels, I guess they're called -- make when they're spinning around while the microwave is on. With our current one (by Sharp), I had to yank the carousel off the spindle/gear (breaking the spindle in the process) before she was able to use it. The Sharp has been good overall, but I'd really like to not have to do that again.
I've found exactly one microwave oven that allows you to simply remove the tray from the spindle. It's a Kenmore, but the local outlet can't seem to order one for us (they claim to be at the mercy of what HQ sends), and the online reviews of it are fairly indifferent.
We need to stay with a countertop microwave. Any recommendations? Thanks.
