We were given this microwave when we were first married. It is compact and fit well in our tiny apartment kitchen when we were newly weds. Now we have been married five years and in our first home and this microwave is still going strong. Granted we have an over counter microwave that was in our kitchen when we purchased our home that we use more. But we still have this microwave off to the side in our kitchen to use when we need to microwave two things at once. It is a pretty small microwave so we use our other microwave for bigger pans of foods. This microwave does a good job however in not over cooking our food. Food is cooked well and even. It just doesn't seem as powerful as our Fridgidaire though. It is really easy to use with its preset functions. It also is easy to clean. It has lasted us five years so far with no problems or glitches. It is budget friendly and I definitely feel like we have gotten good use from this microwave.
