Was looking for a small microwave to replace the one we have on our countertop. Tried the Panasonic NN-SD372S Stainless 950W 0.8 Cu. Ft from amazon. Loved the power, but the fan cooling the inverter runs a full 60 seconds after every use which I did not like at all.
Tried the LG - 0.7 Cu. Ft. Microwave - Stainless-Steel from Best Buy but it was way too loud, had black sides, and seemed kinda cheap.
So, finally tried this GE microwave.
-- Stainless front with gray sides looks nice.
-- One touch buttons. Push the 30 sec button or the 1 thru 6 numbers and the microwave starts cooking. So simple.
-- When running, it is quieter than our old counter top microwave and quieter than the other two microwaves I tried.
-- You can turn off the beeps!!! Since I am up early, that is a huge plus in our small house.
-- The button to open the door feels solid not flimsy like some small microwaves.
-- very compact.
-- only $79.99
-- Heats better than our old small microwave. But when I heated six ounces of water for 90 seconds, the LG water was five degrees warmer.
Overall, I really like this microwave. I do not do anything fancy with my microwave, just use it to reheat food, warm up a tortilla for a wrap, or pop popcorn. This microwave meets my needs while looking nice, being relatively quiet, and taking up little space.
