Inverter  microwaves cook great too , much better power control than the cycle time power control of old

 

an inverter micro should give you 3-5 years of trouble free service , when it does give trouble expect to replace it

 

If i was not attached to my vintage stuff i would have an inverter micro myself

3-5 years?  That seems like a pretty lousy outlook for replacing a 20-year-old microwave.  Where are the workhorses that simply go, kind of like a basic cold-warm-hot clothes washer?

Do not repair .........replace

Thanks for the advice.  It will be nice to upgrade to a post-1992 model.  Just have to engage in the "avoid junk" research.

I would stay away if they are "inverter" M/W's ..

model numbers ?

Yeah, they all seem to list "Inverter Technology."

This one has the trim kit available: Model number: NN-SE982S

 

Honestly, I'd rather not pay $300 plus another $170 for the trim kit, anyway.

Thanks.  Yeah, that's the website where I noticed the "Optional Built-in Trim Kit" search filter on the countertop models and had my "Aha!" moment.  I have some more digging to do there. 

 

They don't seem to be carried on that website, but I've noticed that Panasonic has trim kits, too.  Of course, I don't know if the microwaves are any good.

Okay, now I see.  If you price built-in microwaves, you'll soon start asking yourself whether you really needed a microwave to begin with.  But then you change your search terms to include countertop microwaves with optional trim kits, then things start to get more reasonable.
