Conclusion: The main reason I use a microwave, as I believe most folks do also, is for heating up items. It is extremely slow even on full power. My previous microwave that was much older was much more powerful. I would not purchase this microwave again due to this.
Conclusion: Very easy to use; the buttons tell you exactly what the microwave will do. Couldn't believe I would be able to operate this unit without an instruction manual, but it's that easy! LOVE the "soften/melt" feature; works perfectly!
Conclusion: So far so good, have only used a couple of features... like the warm, melt, soften features. It could have better defrost features. Since the previous oven was white, having difficulty seeing the buttons, must turn on extra lighting.
Conclusion: Every once in a while, Consumer Reports magazine really likes some car but can't recommend it because of one, overarching problem. Do you know what I mean? This microwave is like that. It's great. We love it. It looks great, works great and has positively the best "popcorn" setting we've ever used on a microwave. But we can't recommend it because of the sound levels. The thing is like a friggin' jet taking off.
Pros: Style, Innovative, Easy to Use, Performance, Energy Savings, Convenient Features, Design
