Excelent Small Microwave

About Me Avid Cook
great produce in handsome exterior format
Minimal control over seconds
from Deerfield, IL
About Me Can't Cook
I need to take cat food out of the fridge and warm it for 12 seconds but this microwave only allows 10 seconds or 15 seconds or 20 seconds. The food needs to be warmed to just warmer than room temp and not burn the cat's mouth. It was highly rated by Consumer Reports and I shopped by Internet but I didn't think to check whether there were number buttons available.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good performance for a smaller microwave
from Chicago, IL
Our other microwave broke after 10 or more years. I wanted a smaller one to replace it, but most of the compact microwaves have poor reviews. This one is a compromise. Not as powerful as our previous one, but smaller so it fits better in the space. It's very difficult to find a good smaller microwave! (It's not as small as a compact though, so be sure to check the measurements if this is important to you.) It's easy to operate, easy to clean, and looks nice. So far it's done a decent job. I use it more as a tool in my cooking -- for defrosting, heating things, melting things, etc. At those tasks it performs fine. I was concerned that the revolving tray might not be large enough, but it fits a dinner plate, which is my minimum requirement. All in all, a good product.
Service and delivery comments:
Very prompt delivery, arrived in fine condition. Good service from Abt.

Happy with microwave
from Fountain Valley, CA
I recently purchased this microwave and have been using it for about one month. I especially like the "Keep Warm" feature which is hard to get in other ovens. The size and the 950 Watts are perfect for my space. The one thing I hate about it is the problem keeping the front of the oven free from smudges and fingerprints. It's very hard to keep clean because the smudges don't seem to come off.

simple and easy to use. had a older microwave that took up to much space on countertop tjis is perfect.
Great features in a small format
By big bwana
from Walnut Creek, CA
Bought this microwave to replace an old Sharp that died. The Sharp was built into custom cabinetry, so finding a unit with a stainless face and near exact width and height was the prime criteria. This was the only one that came close. That said, I am pleasantly surprised how well it functions, heats evenly, and the heating power in such a small package.

Most versatile and user-friendly
By Sarah the teacher
from Evanston IL
The best things about this microwave are its outstanding user manual and ease of use. The booklet gives clear illustrated directions for every function, in a size that's easy to reference if needed while cooking. The controls are beautifully designed with actual buttons to actuate each function. Some of the most useful are more/less, stand time, keep warm, and automatic. Also the oven is beautifully proportioned and elegant. The only improvement I could suggest is that the silvery front finish be extended around the sides.
This was another experience with Abt's outstanding service. Delivery was accurately scheduled, confirmed by email receipt and two phone calls. The microwave was delivered exactly as promised, set up and tested for proper operation. The sales associate I dealt with by phone was very helpful in making my purchase decision. And the two men who delivered the oven were efficient and very personable.

Great microwave, we needed something small but powerful and thats exactly what it is. Cooks fast, evenly and looks classy too. The only problem is it doesn't have a 30 second button, instead it has a round knob to control minutes, but not that big a deal
Just what I wanted
from Kenosha, WI
I wanted a microwave that would fit where I wanted to put it and still be powerful enough. This one fits my requirements perfectly. I've noticed very little difference between the power on this oven and my old 1100 watt one. I think the controls are easier to use than on my old one and find that I much prefer the real buttons and the dial. It could be a little bigger, but then it wouldn't fit in my space.
