Summary: We bought this microwave because it was small and fit our space well, but after owning just a little bit more than a year, the plastic handle broke off at the bottom. Perhaps the glue melted over time? Regardless, we are not happy. It's cheap.
Summary: Be purchased all Bosch appliances in 2011. Refrigerator went out twice. It was past warranty so Bosch would not cover. Then we found out it was covered through the Good Housekeeping seal of approval. Once we got them involved it was eventually repaired then replaced after more and more problems. Now microwave ( HMV 3051) completely died. Only 2.5 years old with moderate use. Bosch will not help and unfortunately it does not have Good Housekeeping seal.
Summary: If you are by nature an angry person this is the microwave for you, as trying to use it will do nothing but make you angry. If you pound on it just the right way, it will work for week or two, then quit. It worked for about a year, then started shorting out. I had it repaired, but the repair only lasted about two months. It's only few years old and hasn't been used much but it's already worn out the door latch is loose and won't close.
Summary: This microwave is now two years old and the door has too much play in it. It is loose and jiggles. The repairman can't fix it. It appears it needs a spacer of some sort. I would not recommend this product for that reason. If the door starts to do this, you have to get a new microwave.
Summary: We bought this microwave in early December of 2012, and so far we are a happy camper. The only negative thing that I would say needs addressed is that the timer does not work independently of the microwave. (can not use them both at once) It's only a minor item for me.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Clean, Easy To Install, Heats Evenly, Powerful, Simple Controls, Simple Display
