Summary: We had a Sharp microwave with a 16" turntable for 11 years and it was fine. All of a sudden it went crazy, like a lightening storm inside. Scared the cats out of the room. But it did good service for all those years.... In picking a new microwave, I wanted one big enough to reheat a 9X13" dish, if possible. But this was not as important as not giving up anymore counter space than I had to.
Summary: Got this at a good price. Have been happy with how it's performed. Definitely cooks food fast. I wouldn't say the Inverter Turbo Defrost works like perfection, but it's definitely better than what we had before...Just make sure that when the microwave says to turn food over during the frost, to do it. This does make a difference in the quality. The microwave does seem to be noisy/vent a lot of air.
Summary: First of all, this microwave is HUGE. Like massive. I think you could probably land a fighter plane inside the thing. (Okay, it's not quite THAT large--but if your kitchen is counter-top limited, you are going to want to find something smaller.) That said, it's a 1250 watt microwave. I love being able to take food directions and cut time off the instructions and have my food hot when I do it. :) The thing is that some foods do not like being cooked quite that fast.
Summary: My husband was amazed that I got this for so little. It is a full size microwave with lots of power. I was surprised how large it was and it can hold a little over 15 inch plate. No problem having to take the food out to cook and then placing on the plate, no having to tilt the plate neither.
Pros: It heats up our food very well. we have had it for a while now, over a year and it is still working and doing everything we need it to do. we have had a few give up on us in less that a year so we are happy with it. looks nice on our counter in our kitchen. it gets alot of use, we have 3 kids and their friends over almost 7 days a week. we have had a few food explosions in it and still just keeps going
Cons: stainless steal would match our kitchen better
Summary: I bought this microwave because it had some features that others in the same price range didn't have, such as the popcorn button. I love everything else about this unit except for the above mentioned gripe. It's huge, I feel like I could fit a turkey inside of it. The kids have started calling it the Mega-Wave, lol. I would have given 5 stars except for the popcorn glitch..
Summary: I placed the order for this microwave on Feb 6 and received it on Feb 8- in 2 days and that too with standard free shipping. It was amazing. The oven works quietly and heats the food much faster. I love it. I would recommend this microwave oven to anyone who is looking for a good bargain.
Summary: Granted, I bought this microwave from Amazon Warehouse Deals in "Like New" condition, but upon unboxing, I noticed a misaligned exterior panel. Continuing, I set up the microwave and attempted to heat a cup of cold water in a microwave-safe ceramic cup--a routine I had done countlessly with my previous GE microwave--but within five seconds, the microwave emitted a strange buzzing sound and red flashes inside.
