      Save your money and spend it on something better instead!

      We purchased this Hinari microwave and grill to replace our microwave, which was also a combination oven. I admit it was cheap, and from a supermarket that specialises in cheaper products however, I really wish I had saved my money and bought something that would do a better job more easily.

      The Hinari EMX (Or Hinari lifestyle as the label says) is a 800w microwave which has a grill function. As with most microwaves you can adjust the % of power used inorder to defrost items or to cook them a little slower. You can also microwave an item and grill the surface at the same time however, after 6 years of use I am yet to find out why I would do this. You can also just grill on its own, which should be perfect to do items such as cheese on toast.

      The microwave has 5 different buttons to allow you to change the settings and then a timer/power button and this is where the problem lies. To actually get the microwave to do what you would like it to do you have to press a rather large combination of buttons. Then you turn the nob to adjust the time, this then spins itself round so fast that you are unable to actually set the time accurately. It also appears to be impossible to set the timer for more than a minute if you are using the microwave on a lower power function.

      The grill itself is also a problem as it smells of burning when you are using it. Due to the mesh which covers the grill it is almost impossible to keep clean as it catches food, then when turning the grill on this then burns and creates a nasty smell and taints the food. As a result I have given up using this function.

      One bonus of this microwave however, is that it has lasted 6 years. Mores to the pity! I'm waiting for it to break so that I can get a new one. However, I have the feeling that this thing will be living forever! argghhh!
