User Ratings Rated 3.2 of 5 stars by 19 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 Can be programmed with a series of power levels and heating times that you perform frequently. Allows you to automatically cook your favorite dishes without constant monitoring so you can perform other tasks.
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 1.4 cu. ft. microwave with average to below average capacity. This may be adequate for singles and couples, but you should also consider your requirement for parties if you entertain often.
