Excerpt: Instead of paying for a more expensive model that could easily break down on you just after the guarantee expires, you might want to try something cheaper, such as this microwave model, and see how it suits you. After all, if worst comes to worst and you need a new microwave in thirteen months, at least you haven’t spent nearly as much money, and you’ve probably gotten all the necessary functions out of the Sanyo EM-S105AW regardless.
Summary: This arrived the following day at my parents' house, much to their delight as their old one had broken. My mother specifically needed a microwave with a timer as she is partially sighted and finds digital displays hard to read. She very pleased with it.
Summary: Basic microwave of adequate build quality. It is the same model as you will find from most vendors including "value" models from the supermarkets. Its just the styling of the front panel is different. Heats very well but the unit gives off a smell which should subside after the first use and has not quite disappeared after several weeks use. Unless you ventilate the room well the plasticky/phenolic smell is quite unpleasant.
Summary: I haven't had a microwave for many years, but decided to get one for those little jobs that are better done with one. This suits my purpose very well, easy to use, nicea and compact to fit on the worktop .
WARNING - Poor Quality Microwave Timer Ruined My Food!

Summary: I paid extra for this microwave thinking SANYO was a quality brand name - how wrong could I have been? Tested the microwave numerous times and have found the manual timer to be so inaccurate it's a joke. Put the timer on 12 minutes and it over-runs to 14 minutes 32 seconds turning my meal into a dried-up mess. Put the timer on 10 minutes and it over-runs again to 11 minutes 10 seconds!
Summary: Good Points: Pretty good microwave. My main concern was that we wouldn't be able to fit our rather large dinner plates into it but we can. Very straightforward to use and cheap.
Pros: Pretty good microwave. My main concern was that we wouldn't be able to fit our rather large dinner plates into it but we can. Very straightforward to use and cheap. I'm very happy with the purchase
Summary: I bought this micro wave for my self, i realy like it but the cooking times on frozen premade foods, are difrent to the power settings on this microwave, i found by adding a few extra mins here and there, takeing it out when it finnishes and if it not pipeing hot then puting it back, other than that i can not fualt the microwave.
