I bought this product for my elderly and somewhat technologically challenged mother. I bought it online and freely admit I was a little concernedas to whether it would fully correspond with the mental picture evoked by the advertising blurb on the Biasco website.
I'm glad to say that, while I think it did fall a little short of the mark, it did match up admirably well with what I hoped to receive.
The product has much to recommend it. Firstly, it's userfriendly. For me, this was an especially important factor because I was buying it for a lady who had cooked with gas all her life and had never used a microwave before. My mother got to grips with it very quickly and now uses it nearly every day with excellent results.
It is very spacious (but, then again, that is to be expected given the hefty price tag) but this could prove to be a disadvantage if you haven't got much kitchen counter top space. It is very easy to clean, and is extremely versatile, coming equipped with several different power settings.
On the downside, the only really negative thing I can find about this machine is that I did find it a little noisy, but then again that can be said of most microwaves.
While I am not entirely convinced that £380.00 is a fair price for this product (and consider, it was slightly more expensive when I bought it from the website), I can safely say that in return for your money you will get a reliable, userfriendly, and low-maintenance product.
