Having looked at about six million microwaves (or seemed like it) decided to go with this one as a combination of price, make and looks. Having had a few I tend to find that most too big for my ideal. This will fit a full dinner plate and yet doesn't take up a vast amount of room. Must admit have not had it performing tricks other than heating basic food stuffs, but it gets the food hot in a couple of minutes and that is all my requirements. Will it last? Who can tell. I don't think I should include it in my will.
