Looks like my Panasonic Microwave gave up the ghost today. Since new seem very cheap I'll likely just toss the old and bring in the new. This is the time to upgrade. Any recommendations? Combo microwave/convection? Any other ideas/recommendations? Where is the best place to buy a new microwave?

Anybody want the old one to fix/make a planter?

Spend a decent amount of money, twice being the cheap bastard that I am, I have bought microwaves on sale for between $50 and $100. They didn't last a year between the 2 of them.

Mine was about 5-6 years old. Got a replacement Panasonic this morning. I need a microwave to survive!

is a 17 year old microwave maybe something that is hazardous... or because it is that old.. it is a higher quality and is just fine?

I've heard rumours about the "waves" that escape from poorly sealed units. For $200 you can get a very good, quiet and quick microwave.

A 1992-ish microwave should not be hazardous, might just draw a little more power than its present-day counterpart.

For $200 of whiskey I would expect you to become a leaky unit.
