1. It was advertised to have the possibility of turning off the annoying ding that rings every so many minutes if you forget to open the door. It does NOT have this function. It does have a particularly annoying bing! which continues no matter how long you try to ignore it.
2. After only four days of occasional use, the turntable started to grind during the cooking process. It does still heat the food, but I am aware that it will break soon.
We ordered this model specifically for the dial. It is being used by a person with impaired vision and this is what they requested. The microwave we received has digital buttons to push - a completely different model but same model number. Very disappointed.
