Overall, a good purchase.
on 5 March 2017
First off, I live in The States. No company here makes a turquoise blue microwave that cost under $200 usd, so I decided to buy this and an A/C power converter because I really wanted a blue microwave to match all of my other blue kitchen things. This one fits the bill perfectly; it's a great vibrant blue color and has a retro look that compliments my apartment kitchen.
It is a little on the small side, but will fit my one person microwave meals or a mid-sided dinner plate (about 8-10 inches) just fine.
The heat time settings go up in increments of 10 seconds for the first 3 minutes, then increments 30 seconds after that so you can't just set it for something like 2:45 seconds like every other microwave I've had before- which is a little weird but not a huge problem.
My biggest issues is that I've actually had to buy two of these microwaves so far, which was super frustrating- the first one worked fine for almost exactly one year, then stopped heating things. It would power on okay (light was on inside, turntable turning, numbers on) but wasn't heating at all. I'm not sure that this is actually a manufacturer issue or because I'm powering it using a converter so I didn't discount that very much in my rating. Because I'd had it so long, I had to buy another one from Amazon. This one I've had for about 1 yr. and 2 months and seems to be okay so far- but who knows, it might sense that I've written a positive review and break tomorrow ;)
Basically it has done what I've asked it to do: heat food and look pretty.
