We have a Sanyo 900 Watt 1.1 Cubic Feet Microwave Oven. My husband bought this two years ago. I am not sure if this Sanyo 1000 Watt 1.2 Cubic Feet is the upgrade of the old one that we bought but all I can say is that I really love our Sanyo Microwave Oven. We mostly use this for defrosting frozen products and re-heating left overs we place in the refrigerators. In re-heating, it only takes 1 minute to re-heat the food. Like this Sanyo 1000 Watt, it is digital so it is easy to use. It's four-digit LED display will notify you if how many minutes is still left and of course you don't have to stand right in front of the microwave oven because it beeps when the time that you set is over. This microwave oven is highly recommended especially to those people who are always on the go like us. Sometimes when we have very special appointment early in the morning, we cook in advance the food that we want for morning and refrigerate them. So in the morning we just have to re-heat them with the use of our Sanyo microwave oven in just 1 minute.
