There are a lot of differences among microwave ovens these days. There are ranges of features, ways to program them, as well as preprogrammed cooking cycles for everything from making popcorn to softening ice cream. But the true test of a good microwave oven is how well it cooks. Some foods are more difficult than others. And having flexible programming cycles is what makes today's microwave ovens so much different from early ones where the only option was cook time.

Virtually all home microwave ovens have a popcorn button these days, and surprisingly not all of them work as well as they should, but if you merely want a microwave oven to make popcorn or heat a frozen burrito for the amount of time mentioned on the package, I can recommend microwave ovens for less money. If you've read my reviews of other microwave ovens, you know that. But that doesn't mean this model falls short when it comes to those tasks. Its strength though is that it does much more.

When you want to go beyond basic reheating, this Amana is worthy of your consideration. And it's no slouch when it comes to reheating either. I've found that among the most difficult foods to get right in a microwave oven are chicken cutlets. It's easy to get them spongy or rubbery and inedible when overdone. And underdone chicken can't be eaten. Even harder to get right is fish. And harder than that is frozen chicken or fish. If you've ever overcooked salmon or tuna, or had a piece that was frozen in the middle, you know what I mean. To test this oven, I tried a frozen Mojito Salmon dinner from Trader Joe's. This oven allowed me to press a defrost button, a time, a cook button, a time, and a start button. The result was perfection.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This microwave replaces a trusty high-end Panasonic for one major reason: after moving to a new house we realized how much smaller the new kitchen is, and the 2.2 cu ft Panasonic was a little too big. Of course, it turned out that for the measly 16% reduction in counter space footprint (which ended up being a negligible 2 inches in width and 1.5 inches in depth), the Amana's interior space was reduced by 33% (a reduction of 3 inches width, 1.75 inches depth, and 1 inch height).

But enough about that. The Amana is here now, and performance-wise it's the same 1200W of power, just in a smaller package.

It has a reduced feature set compared to my previous microwave, but most of that stuff I never touched anyway. I did get accustomed to the fly-by-wire electronic dial for setting time, which was much faster than the standard button pressing, so going back to the old method of time entry was a bit annoying at first. I also am not particularly a fan of the microscopic red icons all around the time display, which attempt to tell you information about what mode you are in, etc. but fail to do so in any reasonable way. They all look basically the same and they're so small you need to get right up on them to see what they are. I have a full-color touchscreen display on the remote control for the TV, for crying out loud! How hard would it be to put that on a microwave?

Anyway, there's another issue that I have, concerning the consistency of instructions and ease of use. For example, you can enter the time and hit start if you just want to microwave at full power. So what if you want to cook at 60% power? Enter the time, hit "Power Level", then hit 6 and Start? Nope. If you enter the time, it won't let you hit Power Level. You also can't select Power Level first.

I uploaded pictures of the interior so you could see its biggest drawback.

1. When I press start it sounds like my old '71 Datsun 510 starting up. Like a tin can. If I put my hand on the right hand side it stops vibrating. Update: 1/20/13 it no longer does that. Why? I couldn't guess.

2. It takes 3 times longer to heat anything with this MW than my nine y/o old (now dead) Kenmore.

3. INTERIOR ABSOLUTE BEAR TO CLEAN Not a smooth surface in it! Depressions on all four sides and lots of open grill work (2 sides and back), 3 tabs sticking out of the back ceiling grill work just waiting to catch onto your sponge . Plus all seams, but 2 bottom sides, are OPEN seams! Waiting for food/water to drip into them.

4. Feet do not stop it from skidding around on wood.
5 Beep is real loud and sounds 5 times, continuing even after you open the door.
6. No pre-programmed quick defrost, like old micro. Took 10mins to defrost what took <2mins in old Kenmore!
7. Pre-programs do not start automatically like old micro. You have to press start.
8. The display can not be seen in anything but bright light.
9. Steam gets in between the outer and inner door glass.
10. If you open the door in middle of a pre-programmed function (turn over a sweet potato say) it cancels the whole deal and you have to start over again. Really
11. The clear plastic covering the display is bubbly all over and is coming up over the start and stop buttons.

No I do NOT recommend this microwave. I would never buy again and am seriously thinking of returning and buying another Kenmore. But I don't use Micros all that much... just to heat, reheat, occasional defrost. I do not cook with it.

What drew me to this particular microwave oven was its door.
