Summary: Weve baked cakes, cooked oven chips, pizzas, hotted baked beans, made tea and coffee in it, you name it and weve done it! Works well in all programmes! Good big turntable and cavity, ideal for big dinner plates. Looks nice too!
Summary: Bought this microwave in October 2010 on the recommendation of "Which". It did indeed work satisfactorily with regular use until to-day when it showed up H97 on the front and of course did not work. On looking at the manual it stated that H97 was a microwave system generation fault and as it is now not long out of the 1 year guarantee we have to pay for any repairs.
Summary: To be fair the customer sevice was excellent. BUT - the first microwave had a faulty door, would close without lifting, then fell off completely. This was replaced without fuss and quite quickly. The next microwave worked fine for 2 days, then went I pressed the door release the door flew off! Enough said I returned it and had the money refunded without quibble. To summarise Southern Electric customer sevice 10, Panasonic 0.
Summary: We're coming to the end of our first year with this product, which seems a good time to post some impressions. It was chosen to replace a basic Panasonic 'wave that had served well for 15 years, and was still sound enough, but we'd moved house and our new cooker had three ovens (!) but no programmer, so we were looking for a cheap and easy way to fit in a controllable convection oven. This one has done better than we could have imagined.
Summary: This combi replaced my old Panasonic slimline microwave. I am extremely pleased with the purchase. The instructionbook supplied is one of the best I have had. Clear instructions and handy recipies. The oven bakes delicious scones and is very good with other recipes! All in all I cannot fault it so far. An excellent buy!
Great performance and feature set for a modest price
14 November 2011
Summary: I bought this based on a recommendation in a consumer magazine. It is on sale in many high street electrical retailers for roughly £30 more than through Amazon. For a model towards the lower end of the cost scale, this microwave is equipped with a hugely impressive set of specs and features. For basic microwaving, it offers three power settings and produces food which is cooked evenly and thoroughly.
Summary: Have had this a few days now and so far, am very impressed. As well as separate microwave, convection oven and grill options, you can also use combinations of grill/microwave or oven/microwave, so you get the benefit of faster microwave cooking as well as the browning/crisping of conventional methods. It's the same size as the Panasonic microwave that I'm replacing (which itself lasted well over 10 years!) so doesn't dominate the kitchen.
Summary: From reading other reviews if you take time to read the instruction manual you will not encounter the majority of negative remarks made about this product. Does a fantastic golden brown roast chicken, and excellent jacket potatoes, vegetables cooked beautifully. Take care when using the high level rack because the grill is mighty powerful. Excellent delivery from Amazon as usual.
Summary: My old fashioned "turn the dial" microwave died and I was looking for something simple to replace it - some of the others seemed so complex - but this microwave was perfect for our needs - the pre-programmed options are great for heating ready meals and "leftovers" and the jacket potatoes come out really nicely - just like from an oven - soft and fluffy on the inside with nice crispy skins - it takes about 10 minutes for a 250g potato - overall I would certainly...
