Cu. Ft.
  The Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) per cubic foot of microwave area is $124. This is less expensive than average and is priced in the bottom 27% of new microwaves.
Premium Features  Considering only those functions and capabilities that really make a difference, this microwave has an average number of premium features when compared with other new microwave designs.
Power  This Magic Chef microwave oven can generate up to 1000 watts of cooking energy. This is about average power with a standard level of heating watts.
Magnetron Warranty  The magnetron warranty is good for 8 years. Compared to other manufacturers, this microwave has a magnetron limited warranty with longer than average duration.
User Ratings  Rated 2.4 of 5 stars by 13 users from retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Sears, and others. Compared to other user reviews of new microwaves, this appliance is rated lower than average.
Bake / Roast  Standard microwave without convection heating. You can't brown, bake, or roast dishes and meats like a regular oven.
Grill / Broil  Standard microwave without a grilling or broiling element. You can't grill or broil meats such as steaks, hamburgers, or chicken wings.
Staged Cooking  Cannot be be programmed with multiple power levels and cooking durations. Without this convenient feature you have to be there to monitor and change the cooking process for more complicated dishes with varying requirements.
Sensor Cooking  Does not use sensors to monitor humidity levels and determine when some common foods are done cooking. Power levels and cooking times must be pre-selected.
Even Cooking  Does not use special technology to help ensure that dishes are cooked evenly. Most standard microwaves do an adequate job, especially at higher power settings. Moving dishes or stirring periodically is helpful.
Keep Warm  Does not include an automatic setting to keep foods warm after they've finished cooking. You have to manually select low power settings for brief periods of time on a periodic basis.
Non-Stick Interior  Does not have a special non-stick interior that makes clean-up easier. Splattered foods or drinks take a little more effort to wipe off, especially if you let them dry and harden for a period of time.
Turntable  Turntable is large enough to rotate a standard 9 x 13 inch baking dish. This is a convenient feature if you frequently cook larger dishes for your family or entertaining.
Stainless Steel  Stainless steel microwave exterior. Stainless is long-lasting, easy to clean-up, and is currently the most popular material for kitchen appliances. Provides a sleek, modern look.
Size  Above average capacity with 1.6 cu. ft. of interior space. More room may be important if you have three or more people in your household, or you like to quickly heat larger dishes for parties and entertaining.
