I used to have just a plain white microwave that was perfectly fine but when I changed my kettle and toaster to purple coloured ones it looked a bit odd next to them so I went about looking for a more modern microwave that would go better. I was originally only going to buy a silver coloured one as I thought that would go better but when I saw this purple microwave I decided that I needed to have it.
I was a little bit worried that it would look too much next to the kettle and toaster but I really like how they all look together and as my work top and tiles are black it goes well to add a splash of colour without looking too gaudy. The purple colour won't be to everyone's taste but I like it. I bought this for £55.
The microwave isn't too complicated to use which is something that I was looking for as I hate anything too complicated and I only ever use a few functions anyway so there is no need for a microwave to have thousands. I basically either use my microwave to cook on full power most of the time and I do this by simply placing something in it and twisting the dial to get the time up on it and just leave it be. I also use the defrost function a lot and this can be done with either weight or time. Again I usually just use the timer function when defrosting and just check on it often to make sure it isn't starting to cook instead of weighing it as I never normally know the weight of whatit is I am defrosting.
I love how simple it is to use and how easy it is to just place something in the microwave and turn the dial to cook it. It makes it so much easier than having to spend ages trying to programme it to do what I want.
It also cooks food really well and heats up evenly. Sometimes my old one would heat up one side of something considerably more than the other but I haven't had that problem with this one and it heats it evenly even in the middle so I can be sure that whatever I take out of it has been heated right through.
The size of the microwave is 20 litres and it is an ok size but it isn't huge and I can just about fit a dinner plate in it with no problems but it would be nice to have one that was a tiny bit larger on the inside though I do like the fact it is neat on my worktop. The door opens and shuts easily and I don't have to bang it hard to close it or really tug on the handle to get it to open.
I love my microwave and it looks great with my other purple things though the colour is a little bit different they all go together really well. It does get a bit smudged easily but I just wipe it over with a cloth to get it looking good again. The colour won't be to everyones taste but if you like purple then you will love this.
