Summary: Great choice for our upstairs sitting room. As powerful as the one in our kitchen, not quite as large, and has many buttons to select for various items. There is a coffee pot and small refrigerator in the sitting room as well. Used primarily for heating and cooking small items even though it is large enough for a full sized dinner plate. No problems with this microwave, and we have had it for some time now. Easy to use, and just what we needed.
Summary: This product is great looking, but there is a hot spot in the middle of the microwave during heat up. Also, I don't like that there is not quick 1 min or 30 sec buttons and the button to "reset" is different than the stop button which is usually combined on other microwave ovens.
Summary: i dont use microwaves often. After a few months of owning this it started on fire. This morning i was warming up milk for coffee and after 15 seconds i heard a burst and it started on fire. luckily i was nearby and could stop it. I have sent a request to the seller and hopefully it wil be replaced. I have never used this brand before, and will stick with brands i know and trust. The only reason i bought it was because of its size.
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: Luckily, I am moving into an apartment soon that has an overhanging microwave, so I can get rid of this one.
Pros: It looks nice and it does cook food...
Cons: However, the microwave that it replaced lasted me about a decade. The only thing wrong with the replacement was that the keypad stopped working. The microwave itself functioned find. However, with this Avanti microwave, less than a year after ownership, during the microwaving process, it makes an extremely loud noise that is at least 10x louder than a normal microwave. It didn't do this out of the box. I don't know what the issue is, I've spent some time trying to fig...
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.
