There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
So far so good! The kitchen is going to be renovated late this summer, and our old GE microwave which came with the house needed to be replaced to match. (The GE was working well and adequate, but was a bit of a fashion faux pas in any environment.)
After reading lots of reviews for mid-sized microwaves, I decided to try this Toshiba. The kitchen will feature a black sink and black commercial faucet, with light gray countertop with dark veins/patterns, the floor will be dark grey tile. So the colour and exterior styling of this Toshiba fits right in.
More important are a couple of things I’ve noticed in the short period I’ve had this unit.
First, it is quiet! At least it is much quieter than the old GE. Second, the various settings seem to work well. I used the sensor reheat yesterday evening for the first time and it worked very well. I have yet to try any of the other auto settings; I’ve never used many such settings in the past. But this little guy has me intrigued for some strange reason.
One or more reviews stated they could not get the beeper turned off even when following the instructions. It DOES work; just press the #8 on the keypad long enough. The trick is to hold the key press long enough. The manual states 3 seconds, but I think it is more like 4 seconds. This setting will change back to default if the power goes out and the unit resets, but that’s to be expected.
All-in-all I’m very happy so far. As I get more practice with it I will try to remember to update this review. I’ve always been happy with most Toshiba products, including a 39” LED television that I purchased from Amazon a few years ago.
Searching through the reviews and questions, we found out why. If you press Time Cook, then enter a time, THEN press Power Level, the Power Level button works as described in the manual. The manual needs to clarify that this is how you use the Power Level button.
Otherwise, this seems like a great microwave. You can turn off the beep, it has a handle, and it looks nice. It is slightly less powerful than the Panasonic it replaced, but we just adjusted our times. The thing I wish it had is a reminder beep to remind you that you left something in the microwave. I cannot tell you how many times we microwaved something while cooking dinner, only to find it later that night or the next day. Unfortunately, very few modern, inexpensive microwaves offer this feature.
Edit: I added a picture of how they could correct their manual to make the "power level" button description better. This is how I've modified our manual, which we keep near the microwave.
The interior light flickers, and the 1100 watt power is definitely less than our old 1000 watt microwave. The popcorn setting won't pop popcorn properly.
If you buy one of these, keep the box it comes in.

The size is exactly what I wanted. The oven looks good and is very stable on my counter top. I have no issues with the handle, even though my Sharp just had a button to push, to open the door. It also doesn't weigh that much.
My major issue are the functions. There is a lot you can do with this microwave. But although it is the same wattage as my old oven, it just doesn't heat as well. Something that took 10 minutes in the old one, takes about 13-15 in this one. The automatic popcorn setting is ridiculous. Cooking time is about 1 min and 15 seconds. I had to put the popcorn back in for another minute. It really didn't come out very edible.
I am not technologically challenged at all, but I just don't find this oven intuitive. It's a bit too complicated and lacks basic heating logic! I never know what the actual power level is, there are too many steps for a lot of the functions and in general, you have to actually memorize most of the functions - or constantly refer to the manual. I find one of the easier functions is the sensor reheat. So far most of the items have heated up very well, although you should keep an eye on the food and check it. I nearly had a bowl of soup boil over.
My favorite feature is actually the timer. It's easy to use, especially compared to my old oven. Setting the clock isn't an issue either.
Please note that I am doing a practical comparison of this oven, to 3 other ovens which I use regularly. They are older and all are much more user-friendly.
A positive note; for anyone who has eyesight issues, you can easily operate the function buttons without using reading glasses, especially once you are used to the placement of the buttons. Also, the manual is well written and easy to understand.
Overall, I would probably recommend this oven. I am pretty sure that I will get used, after I've had it longer (I have only had it for about a week). I just hope that this oven lasts as long as the others I have owned.
Microwave interfaces are usually terrible. The Toshiba is amazing. buttons 1-6 give 1-6minutes respectively with a single touch! Which is 98% of what you need. Need an extra 30s then the start button will add that for you.
The Pièce De Résistance has to be the fact you can turn all the beeps off. So making that late night snack doesn't wake the house up or need you to open the door 1s before the end. Magical! Though I have forgotten about what I was microwaving a couple of times because it is fairly quiet and in a busy kitchen you can't hear it.
The final awesome point is you can turn off the clock display so to save that mW of energy. I do wish though that it would do 24hr time but it is a minor quibble.
There are loads of other buttons but frankly all I press is the 1,2,3 and Start buttons.
