Advantages: Cool design, clock, auto defrost/heat
Disadvantages: Can find cheaper alternatives
Not long after me and my university friends moved in to our new house at the beginning of the academic year, we we're shocked to discover the house did not have a microwave! Being the students we are, a microwave is an absolute essential in home cooking!
We requested that a microwave be supplied, and the landlord dropped off this beauty.
Setting up the microwave was a peace of case, literally just plug and play. For any technophobic sorts, the microwave comes complete with an easy to read manual which explains all the settings.
The actual design is pretty cool as when not in use, the front door has a mirror like effect, although when food is being heated, you can obviously see the plate turn.
The buttons are pretty simple to use as well. The microwave has a simple auto settings, where you press the button and the microwave will cook in increments of 30 seconds (depending on how many times you press it).
There is also a circular dial which can be turned clockwise to increase the time, or increase the weight in defrost mode.
Yes that's right, there is a defrost mode which is very useful in defrosting your meats in a quick fashion... just be sure to enter the correct weights.
The power of the microwave is 800 watts, which comes in handy to know when you are heating up a ready meal.
There is also a child lock feature on the microwave, however as we live in a child free home, we have not explored this further.
The microwave is easy to clean, especially with the mirror like effect on the front.
It also comes with a digital clocks that displays the time in either AM/PM or 24 mode.
As we did not pay for this microwave I had to do some research on average prices, and you will be looking at around £40 for this, brand new of course.
All in all, a microwave is a microwave, but I think this has to be one of the best ones I've had the pleasure of using!
Summary: A cool and crisp microwave that does the job!
