What is the lifespan of a microwave oven?



How about a screen door? 40 years.

Oil furnaces are one of the most indestructible appliances around.

But if you want your hair to raise read about their "puffback".

It's rare, but one never forgets.

My mother's Miele dishwasher is so quiet that I can't tell if it's running without looking. I have to run my old GE at night on a delay cycle while we sleep, it's so loud. When I moved into my first "alone" apartment back in the 80's, the stove was a 1932 Wedgwood that worked like a charm. It made the best cookies and had slots for for beautiful milk glass salt pepper sugar and flour containers. They don't make 'me like they used to. Except Miele, of course.

Lucky me!

Everything lasts longer.

Only my Siemens washing machine failed after 6 years. Lesson learnt and bought a Rolls Royce, sorry... Miele. Same thing.

Miele are highly profitable and privately-owned. They are one of the few brands (I'd include Rolls Royce and Milwaukee power tools) that make products to performance standards rather than price requirements. Tip of the day.
