Microwave Oven Recommendations

Laura D. | May 20, 200609:44 PM     2

Hi everyone,
I'm moving into my first apartment and need to purchase a microwave oven. However, I'm not sure what to look for, and haven't been able to get my hands on a copy of consumer reports in order to get ratings on microwaves.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a microwave oven that is $100 or less? I don't need anything fancy. Mainly I just use the microwave to defrost/cook a few vegetarian items that I eat on a regular basis, and that take too long to make in the oven. I don't need to be able to roast a turkey, I don't need to be able to bake a cake, and I certainly don't need a special popcorn setting (as usually this setting tends to burn the popcorn anyway).

Thanks in advance!
