Design flaw will prevent operation after a few years.

  • Summary: This review is (again) moot, as the models of microwaves changes so quickly, but I'll record it here for posterity. This appliance has a significant design defect: the internal flange that holds the safety switches for the door closure is too thin, and bends every times the door is closed.

The Knob is a Hassle

C. MacPhail, Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: I had its little brother, the NN-SD697S (1.2 cu ft) CONs: ~~> The knob is a hassle. I thought I'd like setting cook time with a knob, but it's not as quick or easy as tapping a keypad. This microwave has no numeric keypad. Setting cook time is the main event.
