Summary: I recently bought this microwave and like it very much. The beeps aren't excessively loud, it's quite powerful to heat and cook food/beverages well, and becasuse of the stainless steel exterior, doesn't look cheap and cheesy like 99 percent of the other microwave ovens available. I don't use the Frozen Dinner preset, but there are others for vegetables, pizza slices and coffee. I most often use it for heating milk for my coffee, for which this unit does a splendid job.
Summary: Exactly what we need for our upstairs sitting room. Not too big, not too small, but powerful enough to cook anything in a short time. Works exceedingly well, and would recommend even for kitchen use.
Summary: I had an Avanti microwave for over 10 years. When it broke down a few months ago, I bought another Avanti microwave. The new microwave was much lighter and not well made, since the lines were not straight. Quality control appeared missing. Had I seen this product in a store, I would not have bought it. Having said that, the microwave works, but I don't think I would buy another Avanti product.
Summary: I love my microwave that I purchased a few weeks ago. It is just the right size for a small microwave, quite stylish and looks great with my stainless appliances. It is just what I was looking for. I recd it sooner than the expected arrival time..... I did have to use an adapter on the electrical plug because of my outlet. With the additional plug it would not sit as close to the wall as I liked so I positioned it katy-cornered & it looks just fine.
Summary: I needed a small microwave and this Avanti caught my eye because of its unique design. Pros: The wattage works fine for heating and defrosting...no noticable difference between this and my 1000 watt over the range microwave. Ample room inside for 10 inch plates and bowls, packages of frozen chicken, etc. and it has a turntable.
Summary: This had the potential to be a perfect small microwave but it died almost immediately. It was the first item I've returned an item to Amazon and the process was frustrating. I gave a lengthy description of how long I'd had it, how many times I'd used it (twice), and that the box had been tossed. Amazon's return process involved asking a single question each day that had been described in my description. After a week, I bought a new microwave from another store.
Summary: This microwave oven heats at just the correct temperature. It heats quickly and takes the guess work out of hunting the amount of time it will take. It is smart looking. Note the size because you might find it to be too small. I would highly recommend to everyone!
