1. I had my first microwave/convention oven for 20 years

after it died one day, I bought another, it lasted just until the warranty expired. bought another one, but it eventually would not shut off, on a third one now, could not find a convection/microwave big enough, they are all pretty small now. maybe if I search on the internet, but not in the stores. I had to buy a separate toaster over. still to small for a turkey like my first would have cooked.

a lot of products are built to fail so that we have to buy new, a disposable society in a place were we ar running out of places to dump stuff. I would rather pay more for one that would last. PS my first microway giant convection over cost 500 dollars abut 25 years ago and was worth it.
