  •  I got a "free" microwave that way! (3+ / 0-)

    We had a curmodgeonly old drafter in our office that worked late one evening, and tried to cook an egg in the microwave. The explosion shattered the false bottom of the interior, which covers a reflector. I got the broken machine for free, then spent $95 to get the ceramic floor replaced, which was cheaper than buying a big, new Whirlpool microwave back in 1983.

    Still have it, and except for the packed-in mechanical timer, it still runs well!
