Overall, this microwave performed its duties perfectly for at least two years, but now it has its problems. It is quite large, so we keep it on a microwave cart. Performance This microwave did what it was supposed to do for at least two years, but now it has its problems, which I outlined in the "durability" section. Settings/Features The only settings I use are the cook and defrost buttons. I used to use the popcorn button, but somewhere along the way, the preset amount of time changed and it is not long enough. Ease of Cleaning The food tends to get pretty stuck on the inside of the microwave. The roof is a lot harder to clean than the bottom or sides. The plate is easy to clean in the dishwasher or by hand. Ease of Use I don't really use much of the functions of this microwave other than cook and defrost, but it looks easy to learn the rest of the buttons. Durability I've had this microwave for only a few years. I don't know what the life span SHOULD have been, but within the last 6 months, the unit has developed a problem that is quite annoying. Sometimes after I cook something, take it out, and shut the door, the microwave stays on. I have to open the door and shut it just right for the unit to stay off. This carries over into actually cooking something. If the door hasn't been shut right, the timer will not count, but the unit will be running, and the food won't cook. Design I don't look for much in the way of design when I shop for a microwave, but it is nice that this one has stainless steel. It makes me feel like I have an expensive microwave when I really don't. The handle is easy to grasp as well.
