Tesco Value Microwave
Advantages: Easy to use, works very well
Disadvantages: It is a little small, but still efficient
Living in a small flat can be annoying, I don't have much space! I needed a cheap microwave so I could cook ready meals and reheat my food when needed. I really didn't want to spend a fortune on the microwave. My local Tesco extra has a section with Microwaves in it, so I had a look at them and instantly spotted this one, it was the ugliest but was also the cheapest. It looked like the perfect one! It has two dials on it, one for time and the other for power. Its the simplest microwave I have ever seen and it is also the most basic. It is plain white with black markings. I have been very impressed with this microwave.
I only paid £33 for this, that is very cheap compared to the others that you will find. I was hoping to get something a little more good looking, but this does the basic tasks that you would want. If you need something with all the buttons, then this isn't for you!
Does it work?:
for me it works very well. I can pop in a microwave meal such as a curry and it will cook it through quickly. I also use it to warm up take aways which were not all eaten. It makes a loud ping when it is finished and is so simple to use. There are very few bad points to this microwave. It has a 700w one so it does take a little longer than more expensive ones. If you don't mind waiting a little longer for it to cook then you will be fine. It is also not the largest one on the market and is a little small on the inside. You will have to pay more money for a bigger one if size is the issue. It fits nicely on the top in my kitchen and doesn't look too cheap, You wouldn't know that it is a Tesco value Microwave just from looking at it. This is a bargain Microwave, Im not sure what makes a good microwave as this is the first one I have owned, but I have no complaints about it.
I would recommend this to anyone on a budget or moving into there first home or flat. It works well and has lasted me almost a year without any issues. Its not too hard to clean and I have kept mine looking rather nice. Im not sure how long it will last me, BUt I would consider getting one again in the future. Tesco also do more upmarket microwaves, but this is the budget version and is perfect for me! Its really simple to use, Even a cooking novice will like it.
This gets 5 stars from me, it does exactly what it is meant to do, Im verry happy with this! Thanks for reading my review. I hope it helped you out a bit :)
