Summary: The microwave cam dented on the back side. There was a slight hole in the box from delivery, but I do not think that was the cause of the dent to the microwave. Maybe it was dropped??? Couldn't be sure why, but nevertheless I had to return it.
Summary: We've only his this microwave a few months. It is completely dead. Won't turn on at all. We expected it to last at least a couple years, especially something from Amana. Even when it worked, the turntable on the inside would regularly become dislodged and hit the sides of the microwave. Poor design, won't buy another Amana microwave.
Summary: Broken after less than 60 days! We bought this $90 microwave for my daughter's dorm. It was opened brand new from the box on August 28th, 2012 as we set-up her new freshman dorm room. Now, the microwave will NOT heat anything (not even water!) as of our October 27th visit to the college to see my daughter! She has a FULL meal plan at school, so it was only used very minimally (for her morning tea & an occasional microwave popcorn).
Summary: "Good performance.! I find the beeping sounds a bit too loud, and the writing and numbers on the panel a bit too small. I wish the clock had larger, brighter numbers. Otherwise it has a pleasant simple design. Price was great.
Summary: This item arrived poorly packaged, with no support to the sides of the microwave oven. The sides of the applliance were so flimsy that one of them was dented. A look at it showed that it was of doubtful endurance for the price. I returned it, and for a comparable price, found a microwave with many more features and substantiality. Shame on Amana for letting their name go on such a flimsy product.
Summary: This little microwave is good for small heating jobs, it is not powerful enough to cook bacon properly and is slow to do basic tasks such as melting butter.I bought it as a temporary solution to replace my large kitchen microwave that expired, waiting to build in a new one.
