My old microwave is starting to shoot sparks and I know its going to blow up one of these days. I need a new one and don't seem to be finding many deals. I don't want the cheapest low power unit available...but don't need one with 1000 bells and whistles either (which only serve to confuse me). I'm roughly looking for something with at least 1000 watts of power, a turntable coooking surface, and 1.1 cubic foot of cooking area or more. Any ideas?

I've been using mines for 1 1/2 years now, got it on sale Fry's $86. It's got 1000 watts of power and 1 cu. foot of space, huge for me. I liked the stainless steel appearance, very classy, usually you have to pay more for stainless steel AND the pull handle. Actually the pull handle was key for me cause I can't stand the push button microwaves. It's much easier to pull the handle open for me, especially if you have your hands full of food (which I usually do).
I just read some of the reviews on Amazon. I don't think the beeping is any louder than any other microwave I've ever seen or used. And it does continue to beep after it's done cooking like just about every other microwave, but I don't think it overdoes it.
From what I can tell it' cooks evenly. I just ate yesterday a frozen burrito and almost always it's pretty much cooked all the way. The oven also has a glass front which makes it seem like it's built more sturdy. Most microwaves have a hard plastic on the front door.
