I have owned this microwave for 6 months now, and it is in daily use. Compared to my old Panasonic microwave (bought in Singapore, therefure unuseable in the US), I am a little disappointed. In terms of ease of use and cooking ability, it can't be faulted - the dial on the frint makes setting the time very easy, in 10 second increments, and there are buttons to easily adjust the power. You can also take advantage of the pre-set times/power levels for a number of different dishes. The difficulty I have had is that the plate inside has the words "For Microwave use only" on the bottom, and the letters are raised. When I put anything more than a small plate of food in, the additional weight makes the plate rub against the bottom of the oven, and this sometimes makes the plate stick and not revolve. I think I need to invest in a glass file, then it will be just perfect!
