This is a great over the range microwave that has settings favorable for those of us with kids. My kids love this microwave because it has kids meal one push button microwave option. They feel like they are professional chefs when they grab that mac and cheese or corndog out of the freezer and take it out and put it in the microwave. All they have to do is hit the kids meal option for whatever they are microwaving and in just a minute or so they have a meal and they did it all by themselves. I love how it makes them feel a little independent and they have to call grandma to brag about how "big" they are now. Energy Efficiency It has an energy star approval and it does just fine. Cleaning Time After the kids microwave some spaghetti o's, uncovered of course, the microwave is splattered with a little bit of spaghetti sauce all over the inside. The rotating tray removes easily so you can put it in the dishwasher and then wipe out and disinfect the inside. It's pretty easy to clean up. Performance It's performance is great. You can use it to defrost items from the freezer and then you can microwave other items at full power and basically whatever the package says to microwave it at you can trust that's the amount of time it takes to cook it. Ease of Use My seven year old daughter uses it effectively. Enough said. Design Looks good and I prefer the over the range microwave to save counter-space in my smaller sized kitchen. Durability It works great and it still operates at full power without any issues and I don't have any complaints whatsoever except the warranty is only two years.
