Look, it works fine as a microwave. But AVOID MAYTAG... their poor designs will only cause you misery.

Summary: I'm developing a love-hate relationship with Maytag, and I'm running out of love... quickly. Their products look nice and work very well, at least for a while. But in the end, serious design flaws across all their product lines will cause you nothing but misery down the road. Do other manufacturers have such problems? Yes. Have I encountered costly repair issues with other brands like Frigidaire? Certainly.
Summary: I bought before kitchen cupboards were installed as I bought refrigerator and stove too . By time I first used microwave it was a year . Well magnetron was defective and wouldn't heat. When I called for customer service they basically told me I was Sol. Then I retread warranty and it guaranteed 10 years replacement on magnetron. What warranty doesn't state is that you have to have them install and a minimum of 110.00 will be charged.
Large Size, Works Well But Nothing Special--Possible Customer Support Issues

Summary: This is a large microwave oven. It has settings I have yet to try. Instead of a rotating plate it has a plate that moves left to right and front to back. Seems a bit strange but I am sure they have some reason for it. The previous microwave had a single touch feature which I liked. This one necessitates selecting some setting prior to setting a length of time. That isn't a serious flaw, it does have the add 30 second feature that I like.
Looks great. Don't bother trying to cook in it. Not even popcorn.

Summary: This microwave replaced a Panasonic Inverter microwave that I loved, but couldn't get parts for after it failed after 10 years. This is the worst microwave oven I have ever owned. Firstly, it has the worst cooking performance I've ever seen in a microwave. It won't even pop popcorn! I claims to be 1000 watts output, but I would be surprised if it was half that. It leaves 1/2 the popcorn unpopped even after 4 minutes.
Summary: Haven't had the appliance too long so I remain neutral in my rating however I believe the loud fan issue others are upset about may be due to improper installation. Before I installed mine, thanks to the negative reviews I plugged it in to see how loud it really was. It was as bad as some said. Then I noticed the blower, straight out of the package, came from the factory directing air back INTO the housing of the appliance.
Summary: I bought this microwave in late December and am very happy with it. I like the overall appearance of the microwave. I haven't had it long but it seems to be performing the job it was intended to do.
Microwaves well, love the light, looks good, but the vent isn't the best

Summary: I am happy with this microwave, but for the price my husband is very disappointed and wishes I hadn't bought it. It microwaves very well. Lots of people complain about how loud it is, but I really don't think it's bothersome. It make no more noise than my 15 year old dishwasher, and since you typically don't run it for more than a few minutes it's not like the noise pollution is constantly an issue.
