Excerpt: I got my Magic Chef MCO-153UB Microwave as a birthday gift. Prior to it I did not have a microwave at all. I was using my oven. My occasional TV dinners that normally would take 3-4 minutes in a microwave took hours in an oven. So, many things got burnt just from me completely forgetting about them. I really lacked counter space for a normal countertop microwave , so I was really happy to get the over stove version.
