Summary: I purchased this microwave because it would be easy for my Elderly Mother to operate. When I brought it over to her place and tested it out with a meal that takes 6 minutes to cook it imploded. I was so glad that I had tested it out for her and not left it for her to try out! I quickly took it back out of her apartment.
Summary: Pros: Simple, no annoying beeping, compact for smaller countertops Cons: Poor finish. After less than 3 years of use, the enamel is flaking off the inside in large hunks, leaving a rusty surface underneath. I really like this style of microwave. I like the bell that signals the food is done, much better than the annoying multiple beeping that most microwaves do.
Summary: Got this for my 86 year old mom; she wanted something simple. This is it. Easy to operate. She sets the power and forgets it. Then, all she has to do is dial in the time. When done, one simple beep (no annoying reminders which she did not like), and it's done. She "loves my new microwave." Great product and great price. Strongly recommended.
