Need a New Microwave

The other day my microwave oven’s turntable motor decided that it was time to quit. It’s probably about ten years old, so I think I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of it. (I pulled it out and looked at the back. It’s 11-1/2 years old, manufactured April, 1997).

Now it’s time to start researching new ones. I don’t have have room for a toaster oven too, and I’ve seen a microwave with a 2 slice toaster on the side of it, so I decided to see if there was a toaster oven/microwave combo…

There is it’s a Sharp R-55TS Warm & Toasty Toaster/Microwave there are also microwave/convection ovens and microwave/convection/grill combos.

Sharp Convection Microwaves

Sharp Grill 2 Convection Microwave

Haier Microwave Oven for Convection, Grill and Microwave Cooking

So, can anyone tell me if these are any good? I do have convection on my regular oven, but this could be nice in the summer when one may not want to heat the house with the oven… Also nice for one small batch of cookies.
