My plan was to run through most of the pre-set cycles to test the oven. On page 16 of the instruction manual it recommends "For best cooking results, please reuse the oven only after five minutes between uses." So dutifully, I set the timer for five minutes and waited. Then, I attempted to heat a cup of cooled coffee. I put the 3/4 full cup in the microwave and pressed the pre-set coffee button and "start." The oven ran for ten seconds and shut itself off.
Was it too warm from the intense popcorn popping? I again checked the manual and found nothing either in the regular text or the troubleshooting section for some explanation of why the cook cycle would stop by itself after ten seconds. Since I found no guidance in the manual, I began trying different things - unplugging and plugging it in again, starting the coffee cycle again, trying a different pre-set and then trying the one minute button. Nothing worked. Everything shut off after ten seconds.
At one point, I was actually concerned when the fan came on while the oven wasn't running. Was that normal? Again, back to the manual, but there was no mention of the fan. I checked the website hoping for more specific information. No, I found nothing that would resolve my questions. Finally, I realized that if the problem was in fact an over-heated oven, I might be prolonging the problem by turning it on and off. So, I left it alone for 30 minutes.Read more ›
The iWavecube can be used with either timed cooking or automatic programs. The programs include coffee, popcorn, hot sandwich, soup, and, interestingly, gel pack for those heat 'n' use therapeutic packs. If not using an automatic program, the timer is set in an odd, but very intuitive way. There are buttons for 10 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, and 5 minutes. The choices can be combined to customize the timing; for example, pressing the 5-minute button twice sets it for 10 minutes. The 30-second button doubles as the start button, making it a quick, instant-on choice. I have this feature on my full-size microwave, and it's one that I use frequently. It's surprising how often 30 seconds seems to be just the right time, especially when something is almost, but not quite, done.
The first thing I tried was the classic: popcorn. To give you an idea how small the interior is, a standard size bag of microwave popcorn, when fully popped, pretty much fills it. It popped relatively quickly (considering the oven's 600 watts) and thoroughly. I also tried it for reheating coffee and, again, the automatic option worked well.
One caveat: The best feature of this oven is its portability, and if you don't need that or the exceptionally small size, you may be able to do better price-wise with a different model.Read more ›
I do however have a few minor gripes. When you first take it out of the box, you have to remove a layer of clear film from the unit. Maybe I did it wrong, but some of the plastic got stuck in the bends and folds of the machine which is mostly a cosmetic issue. There were no instructions on how to properly remove this protective film, only a sticker telling me to remove it.
I also didn't like that the display and controls were on the top of the unit. The whole point of something this small is so that you can tuck it under something into a tight spot or on a shelf. You can't do that because you won't be able to access the contols. Also you can't set or stack anything on top of it for the same reason.
Overall I give this little iwavecube 3 stars!
I have to assume that because this is such a small company, their manufacturing and quality control processes are just not up to the standards required to be viable, at least not based on my own personal experiences. I loved the product for the 5 months it did work, but $99 for this kind of product shelf life is very disappointing.

I have owned this little microwave for 15 months. Was fine in the beginning, then started to work on and off. Now does not work at all.Published 9 months ago by adamsjaz
Even though the size is great, it works terribly. Very uneven heating when it actually heats. Often doesn't even start up. Often have to unplug and replug it in to make it work. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Sarra Lev
As one would expect, space inside this unit is limited & cooking times are longer than in larger microwaves, since this only uses 600 Watts. Read morePublished 13 months ago by John Brundage
