    I enjoyed this article. I am going through a similar process in my first home. As a side note, what microwave did you go with?

    In the UK, I managed to track down this relatively simple model, with only 2 dials. The timer dial is just like the one you proposed. The mirror door is terrible though.

      That functionality looks nice. I bet you could even cut the power knob. I've never adjusted the power on my microwave. Have you?

      I ended up just getting a Frigidaire or whatever. It frustrates me daily, but looks ok. It was the least adorned one I could find that didn't break the bank and sits above the range.

        I think I adjust the power once, to defrost something. But it's quite rare and could potentially be turned into a switch for 'High/Low'. Not sure it needs 6+ power ranges.

        Well, if it's any consolation, I think the your kitchen is looking great! Good luck with the future developments and everything.

    Some day I won't have to post my own links to Designer News. :) Until then, dealwithit.gif

    I was hoping this was about an alternative to the hamburger button...

    I for one appreciate the reminder chime.

    Decent article.

    But what's the the random italics/widths of the copy? The obsessive in me couldn't find any rhyme or reason to the random copy changes.

    And you know that all microwaves used to have knobs right? I agree it would be a nice choice, but you've gotta at least acknowledge that we've tried it before...
