1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy - be warned not a durable product and Sale of Goods Act does not cover you
I bought this microwave because it had the Jet defrost and Crisp functions that i was interested in. They work well but the basic microwaving function is very very poor. It takes approximately 8 minutes to microwave some frozen peas, which used to take 3 in my old microwave. If you want to warm up alot of stuff and have it on for any length of time it starts smelling of...

This review is from: Whirlpool Gusto Microwave - Black (Kitchen & Home)
I bought this microwave because it had the Jet defrost and Crisp functions that i was interested in. They work well but the basic microwaving function is very very poor. It takes approximately 8 minutes to microwave some frozen peas, which used to take 3 in my old microwave. If you want to warm up alot of stuff and have it on for any length of time it starts smelling of melting plastic. The other flaw which is a potential fire hazard is that it DOES NOT SWITCH OFF once the end of the cooking time has been reached. Instead the turntable keeps going round and it emits 'reminder' beeps at intervals. This means you can't put it on to say defrost and leave the house for any length of time as the microwave would just be left on! I thought it might turn itself off after a while as a safety mechanism kicks in but no.,

In addition i have had this microwave for just over 12 months and yesterday when i opened the microwave door there was a loud bang and the house electrics went off. i thought it might be the lightbulb which had blown the fuse but changed the fuse but to no avail - the microwave is dead.

I contacted Amazon who stated that it only comes with a 12 month guarantee but they would refer my query to an 'internal department'. Apparently the Sale of Goods act UK does not apply to Amazon as they are based in Luxembourg!! Whirlpool were not interested in repairing it either. I will not be buying electronic goods on Amazon anymore. Instead i will buy from a reputable UK based retailer who does abide by the Sale of Goods act so i have protection outside of the manufacturers warranty.

Shame that Amazon don't seem to make that information more visible!?

This review is from: Whirlpool Gusto Microwave - Black (Kitchen & Home)
I spent a lot of time considering which microwave to replace my expensive stainless steel panasonic model which had finally given up. i wanted a good quality one that was up to family usage. ofcourse you can get ones much cheaper but i always take the view that you get what you pay for & i like the look of this, even though its wattage is not that high most food seems to quote about 800 Watts to heat everything so thought that this would cover it & has the benefit of a halogen grill. have had this for a few months now & very happy with it & it is proving to be versatile & relatively easy to use although do need to look at the instruction sometimes to get correct info to use it as it has quite a few functions it is also reasonably sized inside for food not really small like some microwaves if i had to choose again i would still get another one of these as i thing they are very good and im quite particular about microwaves & quality. i would recommended these although ofcourse everyone is different & some might consider it expensive but i think it is worth it & not as expensive as some other ones

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this product: Whirlpool Gusto Microwave, 27 Jan 2014
This review is from: Whirlpool Gusto Microwave - Black (Kitchen & Home)
It works well for some months, then after just over a year it starts getting troubles, cooking not even, so half of the food hot and the other cold, then it smells like some wires are burning inside, before I get a fire at my home I decided to trash it, since the manufacturing warranty just cover one year, and mine is just 14 months old they told me I better buy another than pay for the repairment, what a joke. I am very disapointed with Whrilpool regarding microwaves, my other appliances are working well, oven, dryer and washer, all Whirlpool, but this time I am getting upset with this brand.
