My vintage Samsung 1100 W microwave is finally dying on me. I can't defrost anything in it without adding a cup of water along with it. On non frozen foods, it's really weak- I have to wait a few minutes for it to warm a cup of soup.
I took a look at Walmart, and the models that were in the price range I was looking to spend were either too weak (I'm thinking 1200ish- I want something with oomph, but, I have an old house with lots of receptacles on the same circuit, so I can't go too high), or the brand was Emerson, which I've never really trusted.
I'd like to spend somewhere in the $75 realm. No frills/extras/stainless steel. Just a really basic 1200 W microwave.
I'm looking for recommendations on which model to get and where to get it. I'm in the NY metro area, if anyone has local leads.
