Summary: I bought this microwave for my office to boil water and reheat lunch. It worked okay when it first arrived (I understood it was only 700 watts and would not heat as quickly as the 1200 watt microwave I have at home). Today, after 2 weeks of light use, I tried to heat 8 oz. of water for instant coffee. This had taken about 2 minutes when I first received the microwave.

Summary: Color fine, efficient, small as I wanted and does the job. First one arrived defective but Amazon was quick to send replacement. Had trouble returning the defective one due pick up issues with UPS but it all finally worked out. I pray it last a good long time. The one I replaced, I had had 15 years but I suspect things are not built to last anymore.
Summary: Cheaply made. When you use the handle to open it the entire microwave moves. You have to put something under it. The rotating plate continually falls off the track AND after 6 months it completely stopped working!!! Waste of money DON"T BUY IT! I had better luck with a $50 microwave from Wal-Mart.
Summary: I purchased this microwave in the end of July 2012 and by December 2012 it did not work, it just didn't work one day when I went to use it. I purchased it from an ACE Hardware store, so the warranty for this store and returning this item had passed. After inquiring with Oster the manufacturer and being told all I could do was send back to the company, (it comes with a one year limited warranty), I decided it wasn't worth the time and effort spent to put it in a box and...
Summary: It is small which is what ivwas looking for because I don't have a ton of counter space. However, it is not the best microwave. Doesn't run as well as ANY other microwave I have had over the years and is lacking some of the convenience buttons that I didn't realize I would miss. However, for a small microwave it does the job just fine.
