perfect size and price

Trinket, Amazon
23 June 2012
  • Summary: I have a tiny kitchen and not much counter space...so this microwave fit the bill...it is pretty good for the size...better quality interior than the emerson of the same size. It was well packed and arrived in good shape. It does have this annoying thing where it keeps telling me to shut the door...apparently it thinks you keep it open while programming it...but not a huge problem...and I'll confess I did not read the manual-so it might be fixable.

Small but sufficient

  • Summary: We only use microwave oven when heating up food or drinks. This was a perfect choice; not too big not too complicated. It goes very well with our other kitchen appliences. There is one thing that is a bit unusual: you canot adjust the power level. However, I usually don't ever change it so this is only for those looking at this option.

  • Summary: I'm not sure it's quite worth $80 bucks, but this microwave has been great so far, really like the smaller size which gives me more counter space. Glad i made this purchase.
  • Pros: High quality, Durable
  • Cons: a little pricey

Broken Turntable

  • Summary: We have owned a similar whirilpool gold model for two years now. In that time the peg in the turntable has broken off three times. First time was covered by warranty. Second time I paid for a new turntable motor, third time I simply super glued the turntable support onto the broken stub of the motor peg.
  • Cons: Low quality, Not durable

Great for small family

  • Summary: No problems. Somewhat of a learning curve from my previous microwave which was about 20 yrs old - who knew. It takes a few cooking attempts to get use to the POWER LEVEL option. I don't have the automatic DEFROST settings correct yet, however, there is also a manual setting which I have used. With automatic defrost, when I enter the weight as 2 lbs, the display appears to show 20 lbs. I let it defrost at this setting, but it took longer than I expected for 2 lbs.
  • Pros: High quality, Durable, ease of use
  • Cons: use guide

Not as good as the original.

  • Summary: I bought this after I killed my previous microwave. (not the microwave's fault). I had the same make & the newest model. This one seems more flimsy - especially the button to open and close. Seems tinny. Frankly I'm sorry that I held out to find this one and pay a much higher price. Off the shelf retail units are much, much less money and I'm willing to bet, just as good.
  • Cons: Not durable

Excellent Compact Countertop Microwave

J. Williams, Amazon
20 July 2011
  • Summary: I bought my Whirlpool WMC1070XB Microwave at Radio Lab. It was on sale for $99, marked down from the MSRP of $109. It replaced a 19-year-old 600 watt, 0.5 cu. ft. Emerson that had finally stopped heating evenly. My policy on food is: If I can't microwave it, I don't buy it! So, having a good-working microwave is very important to me. I have been using it twice daily for about a week now and am very pleased. The size is 700 watts and 0.7 cu ft. capacity.
