My Original Review was unfair...

David Marks "norcalidave", Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I originally gave this microwave only a three-star rating, because the "plastic" keyboard started to wear off, but this was my error. The keyboard (along with other areas of the microwave) has a plastic, removable protective sheet over it and it wasn't obvious (when I bought it) that this sheet was even over the keyboard. So be sure you pull off this thin plastic piece before using it.

would not buy again

  • Summary: We bought this microwave at homedepot. We were looking for a very basic microwave. After little over a year the door button got stuck. Others seem to have the same problem. It is hard to say if this is intentionally or just cheap design. However, they put enough into the design to install special screws, so that customers will not find out, .... scratch that, I mean get injured.

Stopped working in less than a year

  • Summary: We didn't have any complaints about this microwave...until it completely stopped working less than a year after we bought it. So, even though we bought it for a very low price, it was still a poor value.

Cost-cutting is evident

D. Alexander, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this microwave at Home Depot to replace a more expensive LG. It was about $65 with a Harbor Freight coupon, so a very good deal for this size and price. Or so it seemed. * It's a middle-of-the-road in most characteristics. The interior is big enough for any frozen dinner or conventional plate. It doesn't feel wanting for space, even coming from a 1.3 cubic foot model. Power is adequate.

Misleading product name

kireviewer, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: The name of this microwave is misleading...with a name like 1110W, you would expect it to be 1110 watts, right? Well it is only 1000 watts. But, this is a fine, low priced, medium sized microwave. I think the most important thing in a microwave is the power. This is 1000 watts, which is the "norm", making this a good, cheap microwave. If you get much below 1000 watts, then it starts to take a long time to heat things up.

No more Magic Chef for me

unhappy customer, Amazon
2 February 2012
  • Summary: We will never again buy a Magic Chef appliance. After owning the microwave for less than a year and half, it died. They are willing to pay for parts to fix it, but the labor is bound to cost as much as buying a new microwave. Our last microwave lasted for 10 years!!!

Fine for the price and expectations

Paul Vail "afterhoursconsulting.org", Amazon
13 January 2012
  • Summary: We replaced a Tappan with a born on date of 1987. Just stopped heating one day. I guess I have high expectations, as our other microwave from Emerson predates the one that died. So we go shopping. Had our hearts set on a panasonic with the reviews, but most all of the microwaves now are way too deep, and way too complex. This one had a small footprint, but wasn't an anemic 700 or 800W. I risked the purchase.

Good for the price

RichC, Amazon
16 November 2011
  • Summary: I had to replace my 12 year old Samsung when the coating on the bottom of the oven started peeling off (caused by the plastic wheels on the turntable scraping off the coating and causing some rust). This Magic Chef model is the same size and power as the Samsung. It seems to work a little better (faster), but this is probably because of the age and condition of the Samsung. I purchased the Magic Chef a week ago (11/10/2011) for $48 at Home Depot (special deal).
