This microwave looked beautiful in the store and for what the microwave promised to offer, I thought I would be a beautiful addtition to our kitchen. I purchased this microwave over the others solely because the microwave offered the ability to bake food just as a conventional oven. While it microwaves food just fine and offers the same defrosting, beverage, popcorn, reheating, and 30 second express microwave settings as the other microwaves, baking in this oven is cumbersome. Firstly when baking you need to switch out the turntables. Secondly, the preheat time for the microwave is very long. Thirdly, you can only bake things in either round dishes or square dishes that are small enough to rotate in the microwave while baking. Lastly, it is very awkward to reach up over your head to pull a hot baking dish out of a microwave without touching your arm to the edge of the microwave or door. Those surfaces are extremely hot following baking and I have gotten burned. Essentially, I feel that this microwave is not a good option as additional oven space. Currently, the microwave sits above my oven without the front glass panel in place. The door has several small cracks, pops apart when opening, and has caused the glass panel to come loose. Since we spent so much money purchasing this microwave, we are trying to squeak every last day out of it but certainly will not purchase this type of microwave in the future.
