Excerpt: It does what it says on the tin. Ultimately it is a microwave. It is not the best microwave I have ever had but at the same time it is not the worst. But what do you review a microwave on? Personally I would say that it is its ability to defrost or cook food in its microwaving way and that is exactly what it does. The machine is quite noisy and if you have that and an extractor fan going at the same time in a small kitchen then you cannot hear yourself think.
