Summary: This is a very compact microwave, if you're looking for one to fit in a tight spot. That's the reason we purchased it. However, after owning it less than three months, a couple of things are starting to bug me.
Summary: This brand I recognized also from stays in hotels, so I assumed they are reliable. The power is not great, but good enough to be a big convenience. Very useful for a single person in a small space. I have it on top of a grip liner so it doesn't move at all when I push buttons or open the door.
Summary: Pulled it out of the box, plugged it in and tried to heat up a 1/2 cup of coffee. 3-4 trials and 10 minutes later, we still had cold coffee. Called the manufacturer to ask if we we missed a step, nope. btw - not even a "that's too bad" or "we are sorry" from them.
Summary: I was at first really disappointed. It heated the bowl, not the food. Then I realized I had to hit the "cook" button before I keyed in the time and hit "start." Duh. I love this little powerhouse. It's half the size of my old one with every bit as much power. Cooks two hot dogs in one minute.
