    The suggestion to buy very old appliances is interesting. My own experience is consistent with the claim that modern appliances are made to break down quickly. The most extreme case of an old appliance that still works in my house is a 27-year old microwave.

    @Michael James – How big is your microwave? I remember we had one from the 80’s when I was growing up – it was the size of a small car.

    Thanks for the mention, FT!

    @Robb: Our microwave is quite a bit bigger than the ones most people have today. Mainly it is taller.
