Great microwave, best controls on the market
on December 26, 2011
I went through three or four microwaves before settling on this one. All I want is a countertop microwave that has:
* A +30-second button (or minute-plus)
* Instant-on buttons, where you press "1" to start for a minute, or "2" for two minutes, etc.
Surprisingly, the other microwaves that I looked at did not have these features. Instead, they were loaded with features for recipes (press 4-2-1-8 and do a dance to heat your lasagna to perfection!). I'm not sure how anyone could possibly need a feature like this.
I have waited a few months before reviewing this item, to make sure that it works well and that there aren't any first-time use issues that often lead to bad reviews. We are enjoying everything about this, including its look, functionality, and power.
One minor complaint is that the button pad takes just a little more "push" to activate buttons than on my previous microwave. I'm not sure how to compare this to newer microwaves, though. This is a minor complaint though, and not big enough to reduce this five-star rating. Very happy with this purchase.
