This was purchased after my wife and myself received a gift card for our anniversary. Our older one was small and beginning to look pretty shabby, yet it still functioned well. We bought this particular unit based mostly on the size of the unit and the area we knew that we had to work with. I like the way this design allows for the most room inside and still keeps the unit quite compact. I like the simplicity of the pre-settings. I have never really know a lot about how to use a microwave in certain situations but these settings seem to help take away some of that fear. I was also very pleased that it's turntable is easily removable for cleaning. One of my biggest pet peeves is kitchen appliances that are uncleanly. The stainless is a very nice look as well. Performance Awesome performance, fast. I haven't noticed any cold spots or weird results using this microwave. Settings/Features It has many settings all of which I am not familiar with, the ones I have used all seem to work perfectly. Ease of Cleaning Very easy to clean wipes clean for the most part, very easy to disassemble for deeper cleaning. Ease of Use The microwave, is super easy to use. Durability This is a very durable unit it has been in my household for over a year and it hasn't been destroyed yet, that is a great record for my family and friends. Design Love the design compact yet roomy for large items. The stainless outsides look nice and make it very easy to care for as well.
