We found an unused $50.00 best buy gift card at the back of a desk drawer. At the time, the .9cu foot LG neo chef
was on sale for $99.99 It looked like it would fit in the microwave cavity, so I purchased it.
I am waiting on some microwave brackets from ETI to arrive, but so far I have had to enlarge the opening in our 2014 Escape 21 about 1/2 inch due to some bumps on the side of the microwave. I also got a piece of plywood to put underneath the microwave so that the door will open. But all that said, I have been using the microwave at home for things like heating soup and defrosting food, and I have been pleased with it. I especially like that the mechanism for supporting the glass turntable is much more robust and easier to use than the one in the stock microwave that came with our Escape. oh, and it is 1000 watts instead of 700 watts so my tea should heat up faster.
We are plugged in about 1/2 the time. and when we are plugged in, we will use the microwave for reheating leftovers, heating beverages, and defrosting the food I forgot to remove from the freezer. My hope is that the inverter technology will improve the defrosting but I haven't really had a chance to prove that yet.
