Decent countertop microwave

Posted by mapletex (My Page) on

I am replacing my appliances one at a time. My new fridge is being delivered today. Next on the list is my wall oven, which has a counter top microwave which fits into a niche above it. I guess I'll replace both at the same time, since I'm changing from white to stainless.

I've been looking at counter top microwaves online for a little while now, and, judging by the reviews, they seem to have a very short lifespan (1-3 years!) Can someone recommend a full-size (2.0-2.2 cu ft), reasonably priced (ideally under $300) counter top microwave? My current model is a Kenmore Elite, still going strong after almost 9 years. I'm seriously considering just spray-painting the front, given the poor reviews I've been reading.

Seriously, if your current microwave is still working, it is probably built better than the current generation. "If it ain't broke . . . "

But if you really want a new one,,,, we bought this Panasonic six weeks ago, linked below, to replace a 6-month old Kenmore I hated.

I like this Panasonic much better, and the Inverter technology is very nice. My only complaint so far is that the stainless steel front is very prone to showing fingerprints.
