Summary: I bought this microwave in Dec. of 2011. its now the beginning of 2014 and it stop heating any thing up. I know microwaves don't last forever, but 2 years is way to short a time for it to stop. Needless to say, I'll be purchasing anything but a Magic Chef again. What a waste.
Summary: I received this as a Christmas gift in 2012. After about 6 months the middle row of buttons stopped working. Now after one year it is making a weird humming noise that stops if I unplug the machine. I will be getting a new microwave that is not Magic Chef!!!
Missing a couple bells & whistles, but does a good job.

Summary: I thought I was annoyed by a reminder "ding" that my food was done and waiting. Now, I find I miss it terribly, because I get busy with something else and completely forget it was there! It seems some of the functions could have been easier to perform, but for the most part, it does the job.
Summary: I owned a Magic Chef for almost 20yrs & when I wanted a new one, I couldn't find any. Thanks to Amazon, I got exactly what I wanted in a hurry. I can't believe how far they've come in 20 yrs. It only took me 2 days to learn all the functions & I couldn't be more pleased. It does everything except turn itself on. I would recommend it to anyone & everyone.
Summary: I bought the model elsewhere, but I still love it. My old microwave was showing its age (14 years). This unit has a few newer features, and the one I like most are the 1 - 6 (minute cooking) keys. The defrost & cooking cycles take the high end of time indicated. The one thing dislike the most the hum on the unit. It is much louder than the one on my previous unit.
