Where to buy a big microwave?

I've been trying to find a large microwave (>30 liters capacity) that is decently priced. It appears that most of the large models that can be found on amazon.de or amazon.co.uk are not available in Switzerland, not even the respective manufacturer's Swiss site list them as products. I looked at Fust, Media Markt, online shops, etc. While I know the Swiss market for microwaves is rather small, I suspect I'm not looking in the right place.

Any ideas on where I might find >30 l microwaves that don't cost an arm and a leg? (for instance one like this or like these). I live in the Lausanne area.

Thanks a mil !

Maybe they are hard to find here because kitchens tend to be small. I don't know anyone that has room for a 30L microwave on their countertop. Are you planning on nuking a turkey or something?

Re: Where to buy a big microwave?

I got my Panasonic there 10 years or so ago, but it was 750 or so (but with grill, convection oven, etc.

Great appliance, I'd buy one again. In fact, I almost never use my main oven, except for large (8kg+) turkeys, up to 6kg fit fine (haven't tried larger in it).
