I am just looking for a inexpensive counter top microwave. Monday I went to Walmart and picked up a Hamilton Beach. Got it home,plugged it in and it tripped the power off. Took it back today and they asked if I wanted another one ? No way, I need to check and see if any of you folks have had a recent microwave that actually works.

Mine is a Sharp from WalMart. It has served me well.

We have the GE Spacemaker II. We bought it in September to replace a GE Spacemaker that finally died after 18 years - not bad for an inexpensive microwave that had heavy use for 18 years. We also have one at our vacation home that's now 15 years old.

My built in is Amana in this new-to-me house - I haven't had an Amana microwave since my very first, purchased in the '70s when I worked at a hardware and appliance store and they were well over $500 :), and that may have been after employee's discount.

The last countertop I bought and left in the house I will sell was Kenmore from Sears, on sale about 5 years ago for approximately $70. It would hold a 9x12 pan, had a turn table, more functions than I needed and still working great.

I had a GE for many many years. Replaced it with another GE about 5 yrs ago. When we sold the house, the buyers asked us to leave it. I bought the identical one for this house. It will be 4 yrs old in June. Bought it at Lowes.
