    I absolutely didn't mean to say Danby isn't good, it's great and they last a long time and we'll likely be going back to it once this one dies.

    Just by comparison, this panasonic one heats things in half the time, and evenly. That was something our previous microwave had issues with, but I can handle that. Still a great one, they do last, and I have nothing against the brand.

    Yeah I think my Panasonic heated more evenly as well. It had some neat features too. I was sad when it stopped working and couldn't afford another higher priced microwave, opting for a cheaper one thinking I would get a better model in a couple years, but this Danby works fine so there is no real reason to.

    We have a Sunbeam right now - it's awesome! We got it free, second-hand - but like-new condition, from some people who were combining households.

    It's 1.1 cu ft, and 1000w (the specs I like best for size and power). Heats evenly and is pretty powerful.

    This is it, but ours is black - great price for it! There is also a smaller one for $60.

    Had I a choice, I'd go with a Kenmore again - they are amazing! Our first one lasted 17 years!

    We have had an RCA (lemon!), and then a Panasonic, which we didn't like at all.

    Check Future Shop, Canadian Tire, Sears.

    $249.00 Sears Microwave convection combo Item #: 223 686 116 10. The best out there I bought this in the spring and save on turning oven for chicken strips or 12" pizza. I can use convection and bake like a normal oven. Call Sears; I picked up mine for $199.00

    17 years????? Wooowwww. But, sadly, I highly doubt that companies make long-lasting products anymore lol. They're made to break so that consumers can spend money getting new ones Thank you for the advice though!

    Oh, I know, nat - those days are over!

    It helps, too, that I have a handy husband - when the nuker first died, he looked at it and found that it was just a fuse which needed replacing, and it went for two more years before it was totally kaput.

    Oh I wish my boyfriend knew what he was doing...I would take it to my mom's bf but then that would make my bf look really bad. What a dilemma lol...

    Try Brault et Martineau liquidisation centres. Shop models so small dents and the like but cheaper than boxed models.

    We have a Toshiba EM925A5A-BS Microwave & it has been great. 2 years old & no problems so far. The best thing about it is it actually cooks food not make the outside piping hot and the center frozen, highly appreciated. You can read a review on the model we have on https://www.cookwared.com/microwaves...all-microwave/ .

    Standard microwaves are great but i reckon their usage is a bit limited. You can't use them to brown/roast or even bake at instances. A convection microwave can however do both and in fact very efficiently. We recently had a much-awaited kitchen remodel and updated our 15 year old wall oven with the GE PT7800SHSS after a long research and reading reviews on the internet.
    Although its been just over a month, i can say this convection microwave/convection oven combo is one of the most virtuous additions you can make to your kitchen. I love it and would recommend it to everyone reading this!

    it came with the apartment, and it's pretty good! It's true that you "just never know". I can't keep throwing out money because something is on sale though...so I will do my research and comparisons. Thank you to everyone who replied to this thread so far
