There are two ways you can damage your microwave quickly: microwave the wrong thing or microwave nothing at all. Putting metal - like tinfoil - can reflect microwaves and cause a fire. Similarly, running a microwave on empty - with nothing to absorb the radiation - can essentially cause the machine to cook itself. Remember to check your microwave care instructions to keep it working like new.
If your microwave doesn't heat food as fast or as well as it used to, it may be nearing the end. And if you have smoke, sparks, or a burning smell coming from your microwave, unplug and replace it immediately.
There are many reliable brands of microwaves on the market today, and you can find most of them at Coast Appliances. With nearly 20 brands in stock, you can choose from Samsung, LG, Bosch and Panasonic microwaves - and many more.
