After our last microwave broke, I bought this one. I did not want to get the cheapest one on the market but I did not want to get the most expensive. So, I settled with this one. It does it's purpose of heating items. The one downfall to it I would have to say is the pull handle. My previous one was a push button to open, and not thinking it would be a big deal I got this one. Now I realize how much I miss it, when your hands are full to have to pull it open becomes a pain. It may not sound that hard but I find this handle to be a little hard and sticks a bit. Overall, this microwave serves it's purpose, but there is nothing fancy about it. It is more of a generic microwave with not a lot of options. Performance Does what it is suppose to with heating things up. Settings/Features I do not find that there is a lot of "fancy" options for cooking on this. It has just the basic popcorn etc. Ease of Cleaning Everything that I have spilled over in it comes off very easily and does not take much effort in scrubbing. Ease of Use Very easy to push the buttons. I do find however that the pull handle to open the microwave sticks a bit and is a bit hard to pull open, especially when you have other things in your hands. Durability Seems like it is a sturdy microwave, does not wobble on the counter or anything like that. Design Has a nice slick design to look nice on anyone's counter. Has that more expensive look to it, even though it was not expensive cost wise.
