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.
Summary: When my similar microwave quit working I was surprised that none of the local merchants ([...]) carry the small microwaves in store anymore. I have limited counter space, so don't have room for a bigger microwave. I not only use it for simple cooking and making tea, but also for heating a hot pack to sooth an inflamed hip. JR's model was HALF the price of a similar one[...
