Don't use the microwave.
Use the oven instead.
Let's be healthy.
Fuck bread.

Given that I've mentioned several times that the microwave is 50 years old, and this is 2019, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say it was built in . . . let's see . . . carry the one . . . 1968 or 1969. I have no idea what year the thing was designed. A reasonable guess would be 1967 or 1968.

I have no idea what you're going on about, and I'm perfectly ok with that. Thanks anyway. I got the answers I wanted.

In order to balance the load about half the outlets will be on one leg and half on the other. I've seen more than once one leg coming in be interrupted and the clocks needing to be reset may all be on one leg.
More good info that makes sense to me.

I've considered a microwave with a turntable, but that always makes me think that it's one more thing that could go wrong with the microwave. Also, they're difficult to clean (I used to do elder care for a guy that had a turntable microwave and cleaning it was a big pain in the arse).

As for the turntable lining up every time . . .

It's a flat piece of glass. It's no more difficult to clean than a dinner plate. It's basically a large plate.

The turntables are in-built, or built-in, I ferget which, now-a-days.

Wouldn't have a micro without one, tbh.

What is it w/microwaves and regular ovens? I bought a microwave a while back to replace one that was haunted.

The old micro thawed a pound of hamburger in about eight minutes. The new one's manual calls for 15+ minutes. Hell, I can do it that fast in a warm bowl of water!

Our regular oven was trying to burn the house down so the 'rents went out and got a new one. The old oven would preheat to 445 degrees in 4 minutes 15 seconds (I used 445 because 450 takes an extra 2 minutes 15 seconds, what's 5 degrees?). The new one? 12-16 minutes so far. And the new one when preheating shows the temp instead of time remaining,<--which I find more useful.

I was expecting better heating performance, especially when you consider the price: $666 and change, I shit you not.

I told them "If you'd waited a couple days, I'd have bought a used one for a couple hundred bucks. Here's a couple hundred bucks."

Not the glass plate; the thing the plate sits on. The one I had to clean had this inside it:



The old man would invariably spill shit in there (or cook it so long that it boiled over), and that shit would get beneath the plate and gunk up the little wheels of the tripod thing that held the plate. PITA!!

Oh yeah, that would be a pain in the ass. I don't have that problem, the glass plate is 18" in diameter and has a lip to stop anything that does boil over. I only have spatters on the walls/ceiling/door from not covering stuff I reheat.

Right? My poor deceased microwave thawed a pound of burger meat in about eight minutes, too. I've never had the patience to use the newer microwave to thaw a pound of meat, but I know it takes more than eight minutes, what with the four or five move the food and turn the machine back on interruptions that using it entails.

Mine just has a tiny little three-petaled--thing--that the big ol' plate kinda sets on, no wheels.
