Summary: I, find this device very satisfactory for my needs at this stage of my life. It fills a void when I'm not really in the mood to cook, as it allows me the freedom of time and still serve a quick and tasty meal.
Pros: Attractive Design, Easy To Clean, Easy To Install, Heats Evenly, Powerful, Simple Controls, Simple Display
Summary: My LG counter top microwave failed and I wanted another brand. BestBuy didn't have whirlpool, and Frigaire is part of Whirlpool. Frigaire isn't a great name for an oven. The LG sounded one alarm when it finished, and even stopped it if the door was opened. I hate the fact Fridaire doesn't stop when door opens, but will continue with alarms separated by delays until door opens.
Summary: This microwave seemed to have exactly what my mom needed. It was basic, but had all the functions that she liked like a turntable, the right size and watts, a clock, etc. But like many other reviews I've now seen, the clock changes from AM to PM and back at 1:00 not 12:00. While this is not a big issue as far as knowing what time it really is, this shows it is an inferior product with poor quality control, and poor service all around.
Summary: I'm willing to give many things a try, but I'm finished with this microwave. Our first unit arrived scratched, which is not unusual. The second unit elicited an exorbitant amount of steam from food as it cooked, which would then billow out of the oven once I opened the door. Food cooked alarmingly fast, too. An additional nuisance was that the oven tripped the circuit breaker, rated at 20 amps, about 50% of the time we used it.
Summary: As an update, this microwave stopped cooking items after 6 months of use. Electrolux/Frigidaire are going to buy back the unit since there are no dealers close to us to swap it out. I don't think that there is a company anywhere that makes a good microwave any more. 5 dead microwaves in 4 years. About the best you can hope for is to get your money back via warranty when they fail.
