My microwave may be even more ancient than hers... and still used on a daily basis.
It was a long-used hand-me-down from Madman's parents when they upgraded many years ago. He had it for years before we got together - and that was 11 years ago. The timer quit working last year, but since it is still zapping like a trouper, we just time things manually by watching the kitchen clock.
Two knobs, and a button. No keypad, no turntable.
They just don't make them like that anymore...
Zap it, baby!
