I purchased this Emerson MW8781SB microwave because I have had good experiences with the Emerson brand, it is compact enough to fit in a small space and the price was very reasonable. This model offers multiple options but I only take advantage of a few and mainly use it to cook or reheat items. I do notice that I have to add a few extra seconds than what a package recommends on their low side due to a lower Watt on this microwave, this is no big deal and it is easy to learn to compensate. This product also comes with an automatically rotating plate so you don't have to worry about turning things. This is an excellent microwave and I would buy this same model over again. I would also recommend it to anyone in need of a good, compact microwave.
