Whirlpool MAX 35

On top of this, the unit features the almost mandatory touch-sensitive buttons and digital display. The buttons are guilty of the double whammy of being both difficult to understand and inconsistent in operation. Most of the usual features are present...

Panasonic NN-H965BF

I like it alot. It's a great microwave so far. The power output is amazing. The sensor system works really well! The only compliant is the readout is hard to read. Signal sound is quiet. It's huge inside!

Whirlpool White Counter Top Microwave WMC20005YW

Works really well for smaller kitchens. It's a bit annoying that they've tried to cram tons of functions into a few buttons when they clearly had enough real-estate to add some buttons. To set the cook time, you have to hold down the + button and let...
