Summary: Initially I was happy with the performance of this microwave - it's basic but it did the job fine. However, we've had it for just less than 2 years and paint has peeled off in several places, showing rust underneath. The fan, light and turntable also sometimes operate when it is not on - it doesn't appear to heat at these times but there is no explanation for why this happens and you can't then use the microwave until it stops.
Summary: I though I had just blocked up some vents or something but I am buying one of these for my sister and noticed the reviews all saying about the amount of steam!!! I totally agree, it hasn't made any difference to the performance and there is no deterioration to the inside. Mine is now a year old.
Summary: A good-looking, compact and efficient microwave but why does it produce so much steam? I cooked a ready meal for 7 minutes today and had to leave the oven door open for 30 minutes afterwards before the steam cleared from the door. I have never had this problem with previous microwaves and my concern is that in the longer term this will cause the sort of problems with the interior that other reviewers have mentioned.
Summary: This microwave is a beautiful addition to my kitchen, very modern, quite compact compared to my old one. I love the design / style of this model and it is very easy to use. It does however leave puddles of water inside when steam builds up, esp, when I am part boiling veg.
Pros: Nice size, does not take up too much worktop. It is so lovely to have automatic settings again. My last microwave drove my mad with the manual settings!! Good purchase, would recommend to anyone., None
