DIdnt last long

D. Francey "MtnXf", Amazon
29 May 2011
  • Summary: Mine lasted 3 years with little use. After about 2 years, the heating element would kick in and out randomly (you can hear a strange noise). Now when the door is opened it trips the breaker, and I have to goto the basement to switch it back on. Pretty bad considering the previous microwave lasted 8+years, and the one before 8+ years.

  • Summary: I've had this microwave for little over 2 years and I'm pleased with it. It serves it's purpose, isn't too big or small, and is pretty powerful so I don't have to put things on for 5 hours just to get it heated. At first I did find it a little strange that when you press a number it automatically starts for a specific amount of time (i.e. press 1 for 1 minute, 2 for 2 minutes, 3 for 3 minutes, etc.).

  • Summary: What can I say? I needed something for quickly heating leftovers and thawing, and this certainly does the trick. You won't be able to cook a turkey in this thing, but who would want to? There's not much need to read the manual; just put your goodies in, push a button and watch it go. I probably don't need to say how nice it is to have a turntable in it, since they're pretty standard these days, but after the old one is is so nice to not have to keep turning my food every...

Decent, basic microwave

Matthew Charles, Amazon

  • Summary: I've owned this product for a little over a year and haven't had any problems with it. It's big enough to hold a bag of popcorn or a large dinner plate, although sometimes larger, square items catch on a side and don't rotate due to the smaller size of this unit. The only thing I don't like is that, as another reviewer mentioned, the interface is different than other microwaves -- instead of entering the time and pushing "start" you have to push the "power" button, then...

  • Summary: I know I should maybe read the manual, but I kinda refuse to do so for a microwave. Whenever I press a number button, it just starts going immediately. I then think "woah... when I want you to start I'll press START". Then I shrug and figure that it's doing what I want anyway. I just watch it go for the desired amount of time, and then take the food out.
