Best place to look for microwave?

catherinetJune 5, 2005


Our sharp carrosel microwave finally bit the dust. My MIL gave it to us in l983! Where would you suggest I go to look, that would have alot of choices? An appliance outlet like Best Buys, HH.Gregg, or a place like Target?

And what features does yours' have, that you like the most? Thanks!

Sears typically has appliance sales running almost continuously. I suggest you watch as well.

You may want to check the Appliances Forum for brand information, unless you're going to buy another Sharp...

Thanks TJ,
I guess I thought the 2 posts were asking where to shop for one, and one asking if there's a way of "resetting" a MW that wasn't working.

I like the carousel feature, my old GE didn't have it. Ours bit the dust a few months ago, I got a new GE Profile from an electronics/appliance store that's been here for years, otherwise I would have ended up at Best Buy! I would have gotten a Sharp, but my appliances are GE Profile.

Thanks dishesdone,
Our Sharp had a carousel too, and I can't imagine a microwave without one now. I've already walked up to my broken microwave many times since it broke 2 days ago, with a dish of food or cup in my hand, and then remembered it was broken. Bummer! I heard Lowe's has alot of Sharp models, so I think I'll check there. I haven't had alot of luck with GE. Thanks!

In December we purchased a small micro at Sears, it was only $39 on sale. Brand is Galaxy. Never heard of it before but it works great, has some express features that we use and we both just love it. The feature that I like the most is the 'one minute' button - you push it and get one minute, push it again any time during the cooking time and it adds another minute, etc. Its extremely handy I use it all the time!

P.S. Catherine, your other post wasn't a duplicate!

I usually go to amazon because I like shopping online but Sears has some nice appliances for the kitchen including a nice selection of microwaves.
