Microwave recommendations?

OK, our old microwave caught on fire today! So, we need a new one. Any recommendations? Especially if you have one that has stood up to a lot of use or is at least 3 years old and still working well.

Thanks in advance!!!

  • Oh, and there are only a few true microwave manufacturers that make microwaves for many different names. GE doesn't make their own microwaves, someone else makes them FOR GE.

  • We have a GE that we've had since July 2002 and it's still running great!

  • Any microwave will be fine - what you need to look at is the wattage of the microwave. The higher the wattage the more efficient it will cook the food. You want something 1000 watts or more.

  • We have had our microwave for a long time. It was a wedding present for my husband when he married his first wife. He and I have been together for about 15 years now so it is older than that. I don't even know what one to tell you to get. I would check consumer reports if I were you. Also keep an eye on sales.
