I have had this microwave for just over a month now and I am so impressed with it!
Not only does it look the part, but the performance is outstanding! I decided to purchase it as a deal was on in my local supermarket. Our old microwave was absolutely useless and took ages to cook anything.
What drew me to this microwave was the look of it. It looks very smart, modern and stylish and is far away from the standard boring white microwaves you often see.
It is much larger than our previous microwave; however we have quite a big Kitchen so this doesn't bother me too much. If you have a modern kitchen this will fit right in!
I find this microwave very easy to use and the settings are great. It has a weight setting plus the usual time one and you can choose how you want to cook your meal.
I have actually started using the microwave as more of an oven than a microwave! It cooks things perfectly. I often cook pizzas in it, takes much quicker than a standard oven and makes them perfectly crisp! It's also great for things such as jacket potatoes, and of course heating up leftovers!
It also has a clock to the front which is very useful as we are without one in our Kitchen!
This has been the perfect item so far, I would definitely recommend purchasing! We got ours for about £70 on offer; however I think they can be up to £100. Though that seems expensive, it is worth it. Forget microwaves for a tenner that break after a month of use and invest in the best!
This is a Morphy Richards Easi Tronic Microwave. Its 900 watts and 25 litres. Its very nice looking.
First of all, whats good about this item and most importantly the best feature on this item is that it has a Child safety lock. This is a good feature for someone who has children and has to worry about safety all the time. This gives you peace at mind. The other good things about this item is that it looks really amazingly stylish and modern. Its has a digital clock on the front. Also it has a capacity of 25 litres which I personally think is big. You dont have to worry about putting something too big in it. Like me, I have big plates and my old microwave was too small to warm things up from the night before ;)
The price of this I think is good for the way it looks and obviously the safety lock feature. Its around £80 - £90. The size of this item is: Height - 30.5cm. Width - 51.3cm. Depth - 42.5cm.
Very good microwave!
I bought the Morphy Richards microwave when my old Sharp microwave packed in. I found that the features were pretty much the same to my old microwave (which is the main reason I bought the Morphy Richards one), but I was very impressed. The controls were a lot easier to work and as odd as it sounds the defrost worked a lot better than any of my previous microwaves.
The Morphy Richards microwave is very stylish and modern but it is quite large although it isn't as big as some of it's predecessors. This microwave/oven may not be very conventional for houses with small kitchens, but if like me you live in a flat it eliminates the real need of a full sized oven. I like the handle too as my girlfriend hates the type where it is just a groove in the microwave door.
Some people don't like combination ovens as they think they're a waste, but they should definitely try out this one because the functionality and price make the Morphy Richards Silver Easi-Tonic Combination Oven a real steal!
I dont very often use a microwave so when it came to buying a new one I didnt want to spend too much money. However, im a sucker for a modern looking appliance and its brushed stainless steel caught my eye!
It was not too expensive and a well known reliable brand so I bought it and off I went.
I agree with the previous reviewer about the size. It is larger than my previous microwave, possible due to being a combination oven, and in the end we put it in the dining room instead of in the kitchen to conserve space. We have a small kitchen but people with a larger kitchen would be fine.
The dials are ingenious and very different to ones I have seen before. It can take a bit of getting used to but then it is quick and fairly easy to operate.
The combination aspect is really useful for things such as jacket potatoes, but to be honest I use my normal oven for most of these types of foods and tend to only use the microwave for quick reheating so do not make use of the full range of functions myself.
It is a good microwave and ive never had any problems, but in hindsight I would have bought something cheaper for the purposes I require it for.
I decided that I wanted a combination oven, as thats what I left behind when i left my ex, unfortunately I couldn't get the same one as I left beind as that was quite expensive. So I trawelled through the argos catalogue online, decided on three different ones to compare.
This was the one I decided on. Also I find Morphy Richards a popular and reliable make.
As I took it out of the box, I was quite surprised with how big it is. Which for me is good. I like something thats look like it can do the job it was bought for. It's quite heavy, again for me means that its of good quality and not mad eof something thin and weak.
Looking at it, its really nice. Its brushed stainless steel sides, a black tinted glass front and teh door surround is stainless steel. The electronic panal has buttons down the middle and an easy - tronic control (a moveable dial) at the bottom.
The dial itself has two functions, as the buttons have two uses for each. One each side of each button it has for example, the defrost dutton has TIME on one side and WEIGHT on the other. Now which ever you want to use, you simply turn the dial to whichever side you want to use, if you want to defrost for 20 minutes then you turn the dial the direction that TIME is printed and you keep turning until you get to 20:00, which is twenty minutes, it moves in 30 second increments which I find useful.
The door is a pull open one, and not the usual push the button to release it.
Cooking with this machine is very easy once you've worked out the controls.
The microwave comes with a cooling or grilling rack which is low one side then you turn it over and its high up that side.
