Summary: Bought this microwave in July 2010. It stopped heating food last week. Up to that point it worked fine. Paid $200.00 for this microwave. Notified Amana and reply was "We value you has a customer BUT we can do nothing for you." Since I figured it would cost just as much to repair it I decided to throw the Amana in the trash and purchase another brand microwave instead.
Summary: I was more then upset when my GE of four years inside top started to bubble and the turn table stopped working. I had only spent a few hours searching around the net when most of the reviews seemed to lead to AJ Madison then all I had to do was decide on a unit after poking around and finding this unit that would fit not only my needs but not having to redo my kitchen I made a call to AJ Madison with a few questions.
Summary: I have only had this microwave for a few weeks, but so far I am more than satisfied with it. I use it mainly for popcorn, reheating, frozen dinners, and softening ice cream. It has a very good manual and is easy to operate.
Summary: I am glad I got this. My old micrwave cost more, and I wanted to replace it because all the paint was chipping off inside. I didn't even realize how very bad it was until I paid less for this one and set it up. It is quieter, and cooks more evenly, and looks better. I am happy with this product.
Summary: I am very pleased with the Amana microwave and have to say it is really more than I bargained for. It is a wonderful size as it will accomodate large items with ease. I have to admit it was a little hard to get used to at first since we have never had one that was so easy to use and I wanted to press more buttons. Just trust the sensor to do its job and you will be amazed. A quick read of the guide is important to understand the options. Real value for the price.
