    Yellow microwave 12th Jul 17 at 9:19 AM
    Hi all,

    My wife has just changed the colour scheme of our kitchen and managed to get a Morphy Richards kettle and toaster in yellow to match. Unfortunately Morphy Richards don't do a matching yellow microwave and I am unable to find one with hours of googling, ebaying and checking others sites like preloved and gumtree.

    Any ideas where I can get my hands on a yellow microwave without having to spray-paint a white one?

    No good unfortunately, if you see the above link then this is how 'yellow' the microwave needs to be.

    They do exist - This WAS on gumtree ( but now sold )
    https://www.gumtree.com/p/microwave-ovens/whirlpool-yellow-microwave-with-grill/1216253616

    ( though searching for this model on the whirlpool site seems to indicate they are not made any more )

    If you can't find one, have you thought about a silver/aluminium type? It would reflect the colour of the walls around it and although not yellow, would be a lot easier to find!

    One small tin of yellow enamel should do the job: Practice on an old one first though...

    Not MR but ASDA used to sell all sorts of colours.

    Not available but is this part of the toaster set mentioned above?
