This microwave does what it needs to do and has a fairly large capacity. However, it takes up a lot of counter space, which is a major drawback in a small kitchen. The cook times seem reasonable and it heats foods evenly. One thing I do not like about this microwave is that if you press the "1" button, it will automatically start cooking for one minute. If you want something to cook for, say, 10 seconds, you have to press the time cook button, then press the 1 button, followed by the 0 button, and then finally the start button. Settings/Features This microwave has a child lock on it. I have not tested it out because I do not have children, but I know this can be an important feature for those with children.
