Rated 4 out of 5 by OldSalt Great value, great features
This oven has performed very well. We really like the add and subtract 10 second feature. A drawback is that the exhaust fan runs when the oven is operated and that increases the noise level. We asked an appliance salesman who has one at home and he said he couldn't turn his off either. Other than for that very minor beef, it's a great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dave470 A Very Basic Microwave
This is truly an entry level microwave with only the most basic features.
First, know that this microwave is extremely loud when in operation. I have yet to hear another microwave this loud. We are getting used to it but were really surprised at how loud it is.
Cook times are a bit longer than the older microwave we replaced but this is not a big deal.
What we miss is that this model has no digital countdown timer. You would think this would have been standard as it really is one of the most basic features found in microwaves over the past 20 years.
Another minor issue is that you only have one brightness setting on the oven lamp but this is probably to be expected on a basic model like this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cbb1430 Great appliance, but LOUD
I love everything about this microwave except the noise. It is LOUD. But after living with an ineffectual vent system on my last microwave, I'm going to live with the noise. Those that need a gauge of the loudness? It makes conversation in the kitchen difficult.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveS Quite pleased
We have had the microwave for about a month. It does a nice job heating things. The exhaust fan is probably not as quiet as some, but does a nice job and is reasonably quiet for the price. The light for the stove top could be a little brighter, but is certainly adequate. Overall, we are pleased with the quality and value.

This microwave works really great. It defrosts food really well and reheats food without leaving and cold spots. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who needs a new microwave. I especially like the energy save button. This microwave was also a great value compared to the other ones I looked at. I also like it's sleek design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tc63 Great Item, missing a Feature!
I love this microwave, bought it after my 1998 died. I liked the idea of the warming rack, though don't use as much as hoped.
Display is numeric only so no prompts to "turn over" or anything else for that matter.
No Express Setting (1/2/3/4 minutes) of previous model.
Pizza "Button" : Really and one for melt and soften...ARGH!
There are NO instructions for AM/PM setting of clock and most sadly, there is NO TIMER.
Seriously, the timer SO important...since there is no delay start option, I can't even time my marinade then put into the microwave to start.....sort of the point of a microwave oven.
We checked the manual before we purchased the item in the store, but the item we have, doesn't have the previous mentioned.
Much lighter unit than previous unit.
Installation a breeze (with excellent instructions and all hardware options), it's quiet and was a very fair price.
Any chance of fix or update?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckie Works and operates great.
Installing the item was a little challenging and you indeed need 2 people to accomplish it. I had a little problem locating the front mounting holes using the diagram but got it in the end. The only thing I don't care for is that when carrying a dish to put in the oven, you can't push a button to open it. You have to set the dish down and pull the handle. Otherwise I haven't found any problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jimbo6 Great microwave!
This is a great microwave. Heats food items so quick we use it only a short time compared to our other model. Also very quiet. Looks good with our other appliances also. Only item I was worried about is that it does not have a timer but that has turned out to be a non issue as you use your smart phone for the timer and you can leave the kitchen and go to other areas and hear the timer. Works better anyway!
