Samsung MW86N-B

Good points: Large turntable for a compact model. The beeper can be deactivated. Power levels are shown in wattages. Drawbacks: The controls are marked by symbols only and it is not immediately obvious what they refer to without checking the...

Sharp R-316FS 1000-Watt 1.2 Cubic-Foot Microwave Oven, Stainless/Black/Silver

Starting to look a little dated, but easy to use. I like to be able to punch in a time and hit start - no extra buttons required. Easy 1 min button is helpful.

Bosch HMT75M451

Very Disappointed! It beeps endlessly until you open the door. The fan makes a noise for a while after it finishes cooking. The button to open the door is annoying and feels like it will eventually break. I like a one touch button. Most of the time I...

Samsung CE 107 B

Good points: Good results using the auto reheat and power defrost functions. Convection cooking was good - fairy cakes were light and fluffy and evenly browned. Grilling was quick. Drawbacks: Readymeals did not reach the required temperature (72 °C)...

Panasonic - 1.6 Cu. Ft. Full-Size Microwave - Stainless-Steel NN-SD762S

Works great for us since I found out a little secret! One of the times when this micro started making the growling sound, I thought this is enough as we had already returned a different microwave for that reason. I took the glass plate out and I saw a...

Frigidaire 30" 1.6 cu. ft. Microhood Combination Microwave Oven (FFMV162) Black

Beeper is so annoying, it beeps 3 long beeps and I have called there is no way to alter it. The most people usually set a microwave for is 1-2 minutes so who needs this long loud beep, can you forget that quickly you put something in the microwave esp....

Magic Chef 0.7 cu ft Countertop Microwave, White

I purchased this microwave 3 months ago for my daughter. She needed a small microwave that didn't take up much counter space, and one that wasn't too expensive. This microwave is not only budget-friendly, but was perfect for our specific needs. The...

Whirlpool AWM 201

This seemed like the perfect microwave to me,.. but when I starting using it I realised that there is no '1 minute' or auto-start button.

Whirlpool MH3184XPS / MH3184XPS / MH3184XPS 1.8-Cubic-Foot Microwave Oven

Cheaply made. Worked great at first but started having recurring issues after 2 years. By 5 years the handle had deteriorated and broken off. By 6 years it had stopped working all together. Won't buy again.

Samsung GE 86N

Being pig headed i ignored all the other reviews and bought this because i thought it looked good. Admittedly a bad criteria for a microwave. It does look ok, but feels poorly made. The controls are not easy to use and the grill is a waste of time.

Sharp R-530ES

Junk. I bought this to use as a built-in, along with the trim kit. It looks fine, functions OK, but FAILED 3 TIMES in one year. I had it fixed the first two times, but now I'm done. It has to do with the (inaccessible to non-professional...

Panasonic NN-SN667B 1-1/5-Cubic-Foot 1300-Watt Microwave Oven, Black

This Microwave and the previous model were the perfect size, but two was enough. Two failed in 3 years in a home with 2 adults and no kids. When it did work, we loved it, but we aren't planning on going through a microwave oven every 18 months.

Kenmore 1.0 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave

This has been an awesome microwave. I've had it for 4 years now and it looks and works just like brand new. This isn't my first Kenmore purchase, I've had great luck with their vacuums and freezers. The quality is awesome!
