Advantages: quality, looks, simple to use
I was looking a good brand built-in microwave and the choice out there is somewhat limited. Aeg look good, perform all the functions of a normal microwave and although expensive to buy not as expensive as some other brands.
I have owned the microwave for 5-6 years and i see no reason why when i repace the kitchen that i would not keep the microwave and use it in the new kitchen.
The main benefit is the fact that it is built in making the kitchen look so much sleeker. This comes at a price compared to freestanding microwaves which some might see as prohibitive but as a finishing touch to an expensive kitchen in my opinion well worth it
The build quality is fantastic never had a problem, the stainless steel is good quality and has not stained or discoloured as i have seen this on some stainless before.
The ergonomics are good, it has a large capacity, i can get a 3.0litre pyrex pot in easily and the glass plate is larger than a normal dinner plate.
It is simple to use in its basic form - turn the dial for the time you want then press start. None of these press 6 buttons twice then the start button three times etc
Some microwaves have more functions but at the end of the day it is a microwave not an oven or grill.
It fits in a standard 600wide cabinet and i can't remember having any depth issues when i fited the kitchen.
Summary: I will put it in my next kitchen
