    hahaha...Gaynel, are you hiding them =;D.
    My microwave we'd had for 20 yrs finally died and I just went to Wally World and bought one of those $40.00 jobbers......it works great, has a turn table too.
    My "big expensive" one I bought way back in the day didn't even have a turntable. They used to be prety costly/pricy I think....they've come down considerably and it's enough 'power' for what I use it for.

    yes I need to replace, never think of it when I'mout shopping. Mine was almost 300 bucks and only lasted 7 yrs, so I'm going el cheapo this time.

    Best way to go....I figured if it didn't last long, I wasn't throwing away much and just buy another el cheapo.
    BUT...this el cheapo one has lasted for almost 10 years now. Certainly got our $40.00 worth out of it.
