    I learned long ago that a used $20 microwave usually lasts just as long as a new one.  Lots of people dump their old appliances for next to nothing after they remodel.  They get taken in by all the new styling and marketing, so they tend to believe their old appliances are obsolete.  With a little patience one can get a like-new microwave for next to nothing.

    Then again, my microwaving needs are simple:  defrost meat, reheat leftovers, and reheat cold coffee.
