Good Office Microwave

By 

from USA

Comments about Oster 1.1 Cubic Feet Microwave Oven:

This microwave sits in our office at work. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 20-25 people use it daily and I think it's a great option for a small office. It gets frequent use - and not always the most gentle or careful of use - and I still think it has done a nice job - especially in terms of durability and reliability. Its affordable and a good value for the money, is very easy and self-explanatory to use, has plenty of buttons so you can customize your heating options, features a turn-table which helps with even heating, is powerful for such a small machine, and is a great space saver when there isn't a ton of counter room available. We don't use the defrost setting much, mostly just heat and reheat, but I've certainly never noticed a problem with the power or how it performs. It really is just a great microwave for a small space - its compact, economical, and works very nicely. I also like the well-lit display and how easy it is to keep the microwave clean on the inside and outside. I'd recommend this as an excellent choice for small spaces and people on a budget who need a reliable, easy microwave that still offers them a fair number of options.

Oster Microwave Oven

By

Comments about Oster 1.1 Cubic Feet Microwave Oven:

We just got this microwave and so far it is great. The price was better than we could find on any other microwave anywhere. It seems to work great and is very easy to set and use. It is a good size and I love the turn table.

Performance
This microwave works great. The turntable is nice to have and helps the food to cook evenly and heat evenly.

Settings/Features
The settings are very easy to set. The buttons are easy to find and set.

Ease of Cleaning
This microwave is very easy to clean. The turntable can be taken out and washed and cleaned with soap and water and the inside of the microwave can be wiped with a damp cloth.

Ease of Use
This microwave is very easy to use. The buttons are easy to find and easy to set.

Durability
We just got this microwave but so far is seems like it will hold up well. It seems to be made well.

Design
The design is simple and easy to set and use. It is classy looking but yet simple. It is the perfect size for a family. It does take up some room on the counter, but is not too big that it takes over the counter.

Love my Tiny Oster

By 

from St. Louis, MO

Comments about Oster 1.1 Cubic Feet Microwave Oven:

What an incredible little microwave! My husband and I have lived in several apartments with tiny kitchens and this has been a great addition to all of them. It has 1100 watts of power, which is pretty incredible for such a small machine. I never have any trouble getting things hot with it, even large amounts of food.

I consider this microwave to be very versatile. It works well for heating any normal items, such as food and beverages. I especially like the speed defrost setting, where you can just set the amount of time rather than going through the hassle of entering what type of food the item is, how much it weighs etc. The speed defrost works very well. I use it often to defrost chicken quickly before cooking it up for lunch.

This microwave is easy to clean. You can remove all the moving parts and wash them in the sink. The inside has smooth surfaces and not too many corners etc, so it is pretty easy to wash down as well.

I like the display on this machine. It is well lit and simple.

Performance
Heats quickly for such a small machine.

Ease of Use
A lot of buttons, but it is easy to figure out.

Durability
Heavy duty. This microwave is built to last. I anticipate using it for many years.

Small but packs a wallop!!

By 

from Michigan City, IN

Comments about Oster 1.1 Cubic Feet Microwave Oven:

We have a very small kitchen and when I needed a new microwave I wanted to find something that would do all we needed but not take up much space! Counter space is at a premium here.
The Oster 1.1 Cubit Feet Microwave Oven was perfect for that. I don't cook exclusively with a microwave so having one that was going to fit every pan and bowl was not needed. We just use it to warm things up, popcorn and similar. This little microwave fits the bill perfectly.
One bonus for me was all the options for defrosting. I love how you can set it for a specific amount of time or by weight. It really makes getting something unfrozen a lot nicer especially when I forget to get something out for supper. (It does happen.)
My husband really likes the popcorn button. So many microwaves have them but they just don't seem to work as well as you think they should. So far we have been very happy with this feature, no burning and no tons of unpopped kernels.
I highly recommend this little microwave even if you have lots of space!!
