Need a rec for a countertop microwave.. The choices look bleak out there...

chompie | Dec 5, 201703:34 AM     3

My microwave broke and we need another one, preferably small and light to carry. Don't need fancy settings. Reading the reviews and they all seem pretty crappy and quality seems to have gone way down from older ones. When I find one I llike, I end up seeing lots of reviews for fires, shattering doors, etc etc. I just want a basic one that's safe amd re;oab;e! It looks like inverter technology is to blame for most fires but I can't figure out which don't have it..I saw a nice solid Danby at Whole Foods and figured it must stand up well with all the use there, but saw lots of fire reports..Anyone researched this and found anything, not too expensive hopefully. thanks
