Summary: Love it, with one exception. Much better than our Jenn-Air unit it replaced. Heating functionality is awesome. But the video game circular spin dial control knocks this thing from 5 stars for me. Ridiculous choice in my mind. Should have been a numeric keypad or up/down arrow buttons.
POTENTIAL BUYERS PLEASE READ THE MOST RECENT REVIEWS - DO NOT BUY THIS MICROWAVE!!!

Summary: Do not buy into all the positive reviews. Search the most recent reviews and you will see there is a SERIOUS flaw in the control panel and door latch for this microwave. The one we received lasted only about a year and a half before the unit would power itself off when the door was closed.
Summary: If I had it to do again, I'd look for a microwave with the same number-pad controls my 1995 Sears Kenmore microwave had. It was dirty inside but still worked fine. "Time-3-3-0-Power-8-0-Start". Simple and obvious.
Summary: I wanted to try this microwave oven out for a few weeks before posting a review and I am completely satisfied and impressed with the new cooking technology! It's far more powerful than my old unit that I owned for over 20 years, so I have to dial back on cooking time.
Summary: My opinion only and only mine: - the finger dial thing in the middle that some people complain about hard to control: no merit - get use to it like anything new, period: it took me a whopping 40 seconds to play with it and "master" it.
Summary: The microwave replaced a 20+ year old top-of-the-line Litton that was built-in. With the same space I gained about 30% more inside space to cook. So far we are very pleased. It cooks fresh and frozen vegetables perfectly with the sensor settings.
Summary: So far so good, it has worked a month with every day use. The one thing I don't like is the electrostatic dial, it's more a gimmick than it is useful. I'd rather just press numerical buttons than hunt around for the exact time I need.
Summary: After a month of use I'm pleased with this microwave. My wife is a little annoyed by the circular touchpad but I've grown to like it. She uses the quick minute button and is happy. We both like the sensor reheat feature, it works most of the time quite well.
