My Microwave Took A Powder

The transformer is shot along with the mag tube. So it's time for a new one. Any suggestions on what to buy? All it's used for is reheating a plate of food or a cup of coffee. Brother Jack gave me a Sharp but it's only 800 watts. Talk about slow! Any help would be great.
Thanks

Pigs

Thanks Scotty. That is what I'm looking for. 1200 watts should do the job, Plus It will fit in the built in wall oven I have now. It's a KitchenAid convection oven on the bottom and the microwave is above it. Bet that thing will blow the popcorn out the bag.
Thanks

Re: My Microwave Took A Powder

Well just went and examined the one we own. I make my cup o green tea each AM with it. Its a Sharp Carousel and the Warden claims is 1100 watts. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Been in service at my crib since 98. All digital blah blah blah. I have to get the kids to show me how to work it when gets past the green tea. Now popcorn is easy cuz it has a button which say Popcorn on it. Heats stuff up muy pronto. Not much telling how much the technology has advanced in a decade or so. Nowadays they may make em to wipe your coola for ya. Who knows?

Re: My Microwave Took A Powder

Kind of off topic, but the best one we ever had was our first: a Litton, from about 1980. It survived my young daughter's attempt to reheat some mashed potatoes (in the pot, with the lid on - I smelled smoke from the plastic knob and shut it off), and went on to cook for many more years. We also got great service from a Panasonic. The GE we had burned out two magnetrons (after the second one I replaced the whole thing).

I'm sorry, I'm not used to al the american habbits, but reaheating coffee?? It's something I never heard off.

Over here coffee made in a coffeepot, wich is kept on a small hotplate to keep it warm, and when the coffee in the mug is cold it's usually discarded and we get a fresh cup. Or it's "fresh made" in a Senseo coffeemachine, 1 or 2 fresh cups at the time.

btw, the "button" popcorn sounds smart. I whished they programmed a button like that over here...

Re: My Microwave Took A Powder

That thang has two rows of food stuffs listed with the accompanying buttons. In addition to popcorn it also has such stuff as reheat dinner plate, rolls, casseroles etc. I cant think of all of them right now.
