Microwaves don't like generators. Seriously a 700w genny will not run a 500w microwave, I know it should but it really doesn't work right, you could do it with a good inverter but it will kill the battery pretty quick. I have a 1000w microwave in my house that will not cook anything on a 3500w genny, and it didn't cook very well on the Generac 6500/8000w either.

So, since we would need to run it while plugged in (or with a generator), two things that are unlikely, we're going to sell it. If anyone here is interested, let me know. I'll eventually list it in the for sale part of the site, and put on ebay.

Are you sure that you might not want to keep it for times when you do plug in? They are not easy to come by.

We have one of those. I specifically went looking for that model because of the size. I found ours on craiglist. Aren't they great??
