Cheap Microwave

Uncle Ira | Sep 5, 2007 10:50 AM

After years of living without one, I’m thinking of getting a microwave. I am, however, pretty darn broke. Target has two on sale right now, a Chefmate and an Emerson. Both 700 watts and 0.7 cubic feet. I live and eat alone, so I think that’ll be big enough for anything I’m likely to cook.

Does anyone here own one of these? They’re the same price, $35. I’d like to feel I’m getting something halfway decent. And does 700 watts sound okay for average use? Or should I hold out for something stronger to go on sale...?

Thanks for any advice.
