Time for a new microwave!

Our current microwave (Oster) is LOUD!  We want to banish it from our kitchen with a much quieter more updated microwave.  We got this for a wedding gift 4 years ago, as much as we appreciate the generosity, it's time to move on!


I'm coming here, to you, looking for a a quiet microwave I can find at HD for under 200 dollars.  I realize the more I spend the better quality I'll get, but unless it's a 400 dollar microwave on sale for 200 dollar, there's no way i'm going past 200!

Hey there Mommyg318 I'm Blake from California. I can sympathise that noisey appliances can be a real pain in the ear!


I'm not sure if you are looking for a countertop, built-in, or over-the-range syle microwave so my recomendation would vary depending on the type. 


If it is a countertop microwave you should have no problem finding a good unit for under $200. In our stores we have offerings from GE, Magic Chef, and LG, as well as many more availible for special order. I have heard most of these run and dont have complaints about the noise on any of them. 


Built-in units are also availible however these will require a trim kit which usually will push the cost up a bit, for a built in unit I would highly reccomend you bring your cabinet measurements into the store and talk with an appliace sales specialist. 


Over-the-range microwaves generally start at the $200 price point, and will generally be louder when running the built in vent. Here are some of the OTR's in this range Maytag GE LG


I hope this helps, if you need any more help please let us know!
