The saga of the microwave continued... hubby decided we need a new one after all, he didn't like having to go outside to use the smelly microwave and got tired of reheating his coffee in a pan. So maybe we'll get one today , he researched microwaves on the net , found out it is not expensive as he thought. If he thinks we'll get a cheapo little one, he has another think coming. I want a decent sized one with plenty of power and room.

i replaced my old microwave last year with a large 1600 watt for $100 including tax and extended warrenty. (i got my old 750 watt microwave in 1985!!).

my old one that quit , is 20 yrs. old . It is a big unit , used every day, mostly for hubby's reheating coffee and making oatmeal. I have used it for real cooking as well . What brand is your new one ?

Hiya LadyCook, Please don't get a little cheap microwave, I have a little cheap microwave for my apartment and it sucks worse then a Dyson vacuum.

Only thing you can do in it is to melt ice cream, warm up water and that's about it.

I didn't see your pictures before we went shopping at Sears. We went there because they were having a sale. As you can see from my picture, we got a Kenmore too . I like my black microwave because all my appliances are black. Sale price was $139.99 , not bad actually for a 2.0 cubic ft and 1200 watt. I like it because my 13x9 inch dish can fit in it.

Congratulations! Lady Cook, I'm glad you purchased a nice microwave and not a piece of junk one like I have.

my micro is about ten years old. forgot who made it and to lazy to go and look. it has a convection setting as well. nine by thirteen fits great. most of my dishes are the white corning. cook , reheat freeze and serve in same pan.

i don't know what people without them do. pretty much everything i have ever asked of it . it has done. couldn't cook without it.

My Microwave is very very old and I think we are the third "owners" as it has been handed down through our church. It replaced one that was almost identical, just a little older, LOL!

We could replace it. But I don't use if for much other than the very rare defrost when I forget to take things out on time to defrost in the fridge and an occasional reheat.

My mom has been in the hospital for almost a week. I wish they would release her. She had her gallbladder out on Thursday. Hopefully, she will get out of there tomorrow.

SC - I'm sad for you. But at the same time, I'm glad for you. She will be coming home and allow you a lot more time to appreciate her.

I haven't looked into any dietary needs for someone with gall bladder, but I would do a little research (ask the nurses and doctors), but I would be happy I could cook lots more for her.

I lost my mom when she was pretty young, so I promote giving mom everything when possible :-)
