Summary: The reason I purchased my new Seimens microwave combination oven is I have had one for 13 years no bother unfortunately they don,t last for ever new one has lots of extra,s which I have not tried as I have only had it a few days
Summary: I had my first oven of this type for 7 years and having researched alternatives I'm about to buy another identical model. First I should say the first one died through no fault of its own - coffee was spilled into the control board (don't ask!). This is a fantastic little oven, I really don't understand the quibbles about the microwave, I never had a problem with it. My only niggle, and the reason for docking one star, is that the ceramic interior is difficult to clean.
Summary: I bought this to match a seimens oven I bought at the same time for my new kitchen. In an effort to free up workspace I chose a combination oven/microwave and chose Seimens as they have a good reputation.
Summary: Just need to counter the comments about it being not such a good microwave as I was almost put off buying it myself. I did buy it and its a very good microwave AND oven. You don't need to stop and turn food while microwaving.
Summary: I love this dual microwave / oven. It is small so I don't use my main oven when I only have something small to heat up. The microwave has been easy to use and there are loads of extra aspects to this new oven that I have not yet used. Fab, would totally reccommend!
