Haier Compact 2 per 3-Cubic-Foot 700-Watt Microwave Oven

Haier MWM0701TB Compact 2/3-Cubic-Foot 700-Watt Microwave Oven, Black

With a 2/3-cubic-foot capacity, this 700-watt microwave oven provides ample cooking power and a compact size ideal for a dorm, small apartment, or a kitchen with limited counter space. Its soft-touch electronic controls help ensure easy operation. Just set the time and press "start", or choose from eight auto-cook menu settings, which take the guesswork out of cooking by automatically setting the cooking time and power level for a variety of popular foods, including popcorn, potatoes, pizza, soup, and fresh and frozen vegetables. There's even a dinner-plate option and a beverage setting for quickly heating up a cup of coffee or hot cocoa. The oven's user-friendly control panel also offers 10 power levels, a defrost setting, an add-30-seconds option, and a digital clock and kitchen timer. Other highlights include a child-safety lock, a pull-handle design, an easy-to-clean interior, and a sleek look that will nicely accommodate any kitchen decor. The microwave oven measures approximately 11-1/2 by 19-1/5 by 14-1/5 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

This is overall a mediocre microwave. I read the reviews that warned of the problems described below but went ahead with the purchase because of the size and price. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase, but it's really only for tiny studio apartments like mine. If you have space, I'd recommend going with a larger microwave.

Pros: Very small so it fits great in my tiny studio apartment. Buttons and door work fine. Good kitchen timer.

Cons: Very low power so microwave times are longer than normal. At times heats items unevenly (top will be cooked while bottom will be frozen). Internal tray rotates, but microwave is so small that normal sized plates or square plates will bump into the walls and stop the rotation. Detail Product click here.
