Cooks quickly and is very quiet. The power vent is also quiet. Performance Cooks quickly and evenly. This is a 1100 watt oven. Settings/Features Has all the setting options that are useful, also has a sensor feature. Ease of Cleaning Inside is smooth and resists stains better than my previous microwave. Ease of Use Not complicated but not quite as easy to navigate as my previous oven. Durability Have not had long enough to assess this so I am being optimistic. Design A deciding factor in the purchase of this micro is that it has a 14.5" turntable. This is difficult to find on a 1.8 cu. ft. oven. The only thing I miss is a door-open button.
