Sanyo EM-S8000 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

We purchased the Sanyo EM-S8000 model over-the-range microwave in 2001. Yes, it's been working just fine for ten years. We particularly wanted one without a door handle, since they seem to crack easily because of the heat from the rangetop. ...

Dacor Renaissance 24 in. Microwave, Black Glass

Upon unboxing my oven, I tried several times to set the clock but it wouldn't set or maintain time. One of the most expenses microwave ovens on the market and it arrived defective. Not acceptable in my view!! So much for Dacor's QA! Operationally, the...

Emerson Radio Corp. E 0.9 cu ft Microwave Oven

We have had no problems with this microwave and have had it for nearly 5 years. Apparently it is a hit or miss item, but we have had good luck with ours.

LG 1.6 cu.ft. Non-Sensor Over The Range Microwave Oven

I purchased this microwave to match the other LG appliances we had just purchased and didn't get to check reviews. It is loud, and the exhaust is a bit louder than my old one, but it also blowed harder too so maybe that's why it's louder. My biggest...

Oster Convection Countertop Toaster Oven Large Capacity TSSTTVCG01

The timer has a warning that you must "turn it up to twenty, then back down" in order for the timer to work for shorter times. This doesn't actually work; you often need to turn it up to 25 or 30. But worse, if you fail to do this, the oven will...

Sunbeam Microwave, 0.9 Cu.ft - Black

Like several of the other reviewers on here, I bought this cheap Sunbeam for $65 at Target. I thought it was a decent deal, plus it fit perfectly on my kitchen counter between the stove and fridge. Took it out of the box. Cleaned the plate and inside...

Bosch Hmv5051U - 500 Series Over The Range Microwave - Stainless

While nice and shiny on the outside with its stainless steel exterior our Bosch products were complete crap and a huge disappointment. The mother circuit board in our Bosch refrigerator fried after only one and half years. Our previous refrigerators...

I got this oven as an x-mas present. One year latter and the oven has started shutting off for no reason as well as the display is starting to go bad. I will admit that i use my toaster ovens as a main cooking appliance, so it gets used 3-4 times a...

GE JVM1640 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

I have had the same problem as other write ups listed here. We purchased our unit in August 2005. It is not used heavily, just my wife and I. It looks like it lasted 2 years and 6 months. Then, the magnetron blew along with a fuse. I called GE and was ...

Taylor 1528 Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Weather Station

I gave it one star because no stars was not an available option. You can not see the display w/o activating the back light. Very inconvenient from across the room. The switch to change which monitor is displayed is not on the front as with other models...

Magic Chef 30" OTR Microwave Oven

We moved into a house that already had the MCO160UW microwave oven installed. After a few months the microwave would stop working and then randomly run on by its self for 3 minutes and 30 seconds. After deciding the microwave needed to be replaced for...

Frigidaire FMV157G - Microwave oven - built-in - 42.5 litres - 1000 W - black

Reviews for appliances on Amazon are always AWFUL, because no one actually buys them here. They just come to leave a review when theirs breaks. The thousands of people happily using this microwave, like me, usually don't bother to find this page and...

Amana 0.7 Cu. Ft. Countertop Microwave, Amc1070xw, White

We've only his this microwave a few months. It is completely dead. Won't turn on at all. We expected it to last at least a couple years, especially something from Amana. Even when it worked, the turntable on the inside would regularly become dislodged...
