Before I do a metro run and just buy the first thing I see, can anyone recommend the brand / model of a good basic microwave?
And where the best place to buy it / any microwave would be?

I'd suggest Panasonic. I have no special reasons but that brand hasn't ever left me on the go.

Thanks for the suggestions Byroncasasola & Africa03.
As it happens, whilst I was buying a Delonghi dehumidifier from the duty-free Hapro store on Giang Vo, I came across a very attractive looking 'Sharp' griller and microwave oven for US$140. I couldn't resist.
I guess I'll see how it goes - it has a 6 month warranty apparently, so that's some comfort (not much; just some).

Cheers
