With no place but my kitchen counter for a microwave, I've spent the last ten years on the lookout for the smallest one I could find - at last, I've found it.

I don't "cook" anything in my microwave - I use it to warm stuff, melt stuff, defrost stuff and make popcorn - that's about it. Still, I'd miss it the first time I let a cup of coffee get cold or wanted to melt some butter, so I just can't bring myself to be without one.

I don't want/need a microwave oven with a lot of bells and whistles. All I want it to do is the few things I mentioned, and I want it SMALL, really small. Honestly, I think there are plenty of folks who use a microwave oven just like me, and I think Whirlpool is brilliant for acknowledging this and creating a truly compact microwave oven just for this demographic. And needless to say, it would perfect for a college dorm room.

No, it doesn't have a keypad to enter in the cooking time - it has plus and minus touch buttons (+ -) to add or decrease the cooking time - BIG DEAL - how hard is it to touch the + button three times, followed by the start button to give your cold cup of coffee a 15-second warm-up? Also, if the "start" button is pressed, it turns the oven on and automatically sets the cook time for 30 seconds, then each time it's pressed again, it adds another 30 seconds...another quick way to add time.

It's a handsome little thing (see the pictures I've posted), and all the functions are incredibly intuitive - I have yet to look at the instruction manual. With its curved back, it fits perfectly into a corner, freeing up valuable countertop real estate - I love it. It's a little pricey for a little low-function microwave oven - but it's worth it. As an Amazon Prime member, I paid the $4 extra for next-day delivery; I couldn't get it fast enough.

Just got this yesterday. Used it several times with satisfying results.

Note: The five stars are for the oven. I find product ratings based on seller service are useless when I'm trying to decide whether to buy something. I'd like to comment that, in the case of Abt, the service was excellent. Despite the free shipping for this large, heavy box, the oven arrived satisfyingly quickly. The outer box was impeccable, and the inside was well padded. Abt's return policy is also fair.

Pros:
amusing design; good for corner diagonal placement
small footprint
bright interior light
quiet operation
large enough turntable for dinner plate
tall enough inside for covered casserole dish
sturdy turntable support
handy 30-second start-button timer; hope the button holds up, because I'll use it a lot
easy +/- timer increment works fast or slow depending on how long button is held
700 watts, but heated as quickly as 1000 watt previous microwave
well balanced for carrying
easy front operation; white on black background, so the lettering can be read
door opens with a simple pull; one less button to wear out

Cons:
stainless outside finish $10 more expensive
stainless outside finish shows construction seams and attachments; not as attractive as smooth plastic; looks tinny
taller than the typical small microwave oven; check space requirement carefully; bigger than it looks in pictures
cannot accommodate 12" diameter plates, which some things are
does not have convection feature
wastes a front button on popcorn

The unique rounded design allows this microwave to fit easily into a corner. It's pretty tall though so measure your location before ordering it to ensure it will fit. Overall this is a great unit for conveniently warming up food. It lacks the ability to set a cooking time directly. You basically need to keep pressing a 30 second button which keeps adding 30 seconds to the cook time. And it beeps every time you press a button and the beeping is not mutable - meaning you will hear it all the time. So if you're looking for a serious cooking microwave - this is likely not the one. But for simple quick heating jobs - this unit works well. I am happy with it.

It works great and fits amazing in my space. Don't tell anyone what you paid for it because they will make fun of you. But I think it's worth it for the counter space saved and the cuteness. I live alone and don't need to use it for long 20 minute casseroles. It fits a full sized dinner plate and the glass plate inside is on a turn table. Perfecto- no complaints.

After installing a new double oven to replace a single with a microwave combo I was left in need of a countertop microwave. It had to be small so as not to take up counterspace and I needed blue display lights to match all of my other appliances' light displays (things like that annoy me). Black or silver...all my appliances are stainless and my granite is black. This is perfect. Fits in the corner and easy to use. Looks like an odd little tv...which I like since I like quirky looking things that do their job. I boght several other microwaves these past few weeks- pure stainless...blck...larger...even the nostalgia retro one...all went back...this one is perfect. I don't do major cooking in a microwave and if takes a few seconds longer, well, it really does not matter as we are all in too big of a rush anyway:)
