Before I start sharing with you our Christmas Kitchen I wanted you to see our new microwave. When we added the beadboard backsplash to the kitchen we debated on replacing the microwave because hubby didn’t think it was nuking things as fast as it should be, but at the time I couldn’t find one I liked or in my price range so we skipped it altogether.
I told myself as the appliances started to conk out I was going to replace them with white. Well my cabinets aren’t bright white so white appliances made the cabinets look dirty and apparently they don’t make off white anymore. I did see a color called biscuit but it almost had a peach undertone to it and that color wouldn’t work either, so I went with stainless again.
Hubby and I went to Home Depot to buy furnace filters for the winter and while he was in the tool aisle I decided to browse the Christmas section. I didn’t find anything there that I needed so I wandered to the back of the store where I spotted LG microwaves in the damaged clearance section. It were brushed stainless just like the rest of my appliances, had the same curved handle like the other appliances, and it was 50% off putting it way below what I was willing to pay.
So of course I figured it was meant to be. The only damage we could find was a ding on the back corner where it sits against the wall and once it was up we couldn’t even see it. I now have to admit hubby was correct….the old microwave just wasn’t as fast as the new one. So I’m happy with our new purchase and hubby put it up the minute we came home.
I packaged up the old microwave and will give it to someone who’s in need. It still works, it just takes an extra minute to heat things up. It still looks like new, and I even have the manual for it. I’m sure someone will be happy to take it off our hands.
