    A Very Good Working Compact Microwave

    I am 69 and NEVER owned or used a microwave in my life. I bought this model because it is compact in size and would fit into my very tiny studio kitchen. I also needed a microwave because there is currently a gas leak in my apartment building and all tenants will not be able to use their stoves for months. I also currently get Meals on Wheels which is why I now currently needed a microwave to heat up these meals for dinner and avoid having to eat out now. I actually had to call a friend to help me out in how to even open up the door. As I did read the User Manual and there was NO mention on that at all. I guess it was just assumed everyone would know how--but not me. The button to open up the door is the white rectangular box on the right bottom of this microwave. I never even thought it was a button and just part of the bottom trim. I also called Insignia customer service as I had other questions such as not seeing the light brown mica inside the microwave as it was stated as being very important not to remove that brown mica. Which is one of the reasons I am giving this item only 4 stars as the person I spoke with spoke very quickly, had a strong French accent so I couldnt understand her and it was almost impossible to communicate with her. Plus she just told me not to worry. The same thing happened when I inquired about using my dinner plates because they are larger than the 10" turntable (3/4" larger). It just got to the point that I thanked her and hung up and called my social worker who came over to help me out as I was very upset by that time. She pointed out that the light brown mica is the trim on my turntable which reassured me on that point and also relieved me to find out that my dinner plates would work although they are somewhat larger than the turntable as the door closes easily. We even tested it out and put the dinner plate on the turntable and heated the microwave for 1 minute and it worked fine. BUT the main reason for giving this item only 4 stars is the wattage. Last night I heated up my chicken dinner from Meals on Wheels for 3 minutes as per the directions and it was not cooked well. It was edible to eat but tough and very watery--just very different from when I use my stove. Tonight I will try 5 or 6 minutes to compensate for this low wattage and see if there is now a difference. Other than those 2 complaints I am very pleased with this purchase, It's white color and compact size looks very attractive in my small kitchen.

    terrible-doesn't heat up food on power 10

    If you're looking for a small, cute, inexpensive microwave... well, I wouldn't buy this if I were you. After four months of ownership, it doesn't even warm up my food. I have a meal I often eat that takes 3 minutes to warm up. In this microwave, I always had to do 4 minutes to get what previous microwaves did in 3 min. I bought this one because of the size so it'd fit under my kitchen cabinets on the kitchen counter of my new apt. I almost reviewed it before with a 3 star review, seeing how lame it was but it worked. Now, I'm giving it one star because within 4 months, it makes the food lukewarm after SEVEN minutes. I had to keep putting it back in for more time. I was hungry and didn't want to waste the food... but basically, now I have to more than double the time to get it to be lukewarm. I checked the power level... still set at the highest level: power 10 (which should be labelled power negative ten). The WORST microwave. If you're looking for something small, go with something else. Of course, it conveniently breaks after the warranty but under 6 months of use. What a waste of money. And the beep is long and at ear-piercing volume and doesn't even stop if you press the clear button when it goes off. Wish Best Buy would give me a credit towards a new one. Even a partial credit would be appreciated. An item should last more than 4 months.

    When my previous microwave quit I decided to think about a new one with fewer bells and whistles because I had almost never used much of what the previous microwave had. Once I started thinking about spending less, I also researched lower power options. In the end, I replaced a 950-watt oven with this 700-watt oven. I knew “cooking” would take longer, but I decided that wasn’t really a problem for me. The lower power microwave does take longer, but it still does the job fine, and the slower pace is not a problem for me. I’ve used the Insignia microwave several times a day for a couple of weeks, and I am very satisfied with it. I feel this little microwave oven is very solidly built of good materials; it doesn’t seem flimsy or cheap at all. The only negative I would note might be a problem for some folks with arthritic hands. The number-pad buttons require quite a bit of pressure. I don’t have problems with my hands, but I wish the buttons didn’t require such a mighty push! Maybe they will get easier with use, and maybe not all units have the same issue.

    My old microwave was 37 years old, but quit working safely, but I measured the inside, outside and calculated this into inches and then into cubic feet, as well. Height x width x depth=Cubic feet ( 12 inches= 1 foot. ) This new Insignia measures about 11 inches square interior , has a 10 inch rotating glass plate, on rollers, and a entrance height of 6.5 inches. That's big for .7 cubic feet ! Then I knew this size to shop for, actually taller, and would work since I was happy with the size I had been using. The new exterior is 15 inches across, 10 inches height and 12 inches from back to front ( depth). I have the same spot and space in my kitchen to place it. I looked at my appliance colors, and they were white, which Best Buy offered. I read customer reviews from people who actually had bought and used this exact microwave. They were very good. The number of reviews was 1,000 and averaged a rating 4.5 stars. That was terrific ! I compared it to a couple other microwaves that did not suit me with comments, both positive and negative, sizes, prices and numbers of reviews and stars. This microwave had everything I wanted, size= interior and exterior, a warranty, color and free shipping and a best price from any store I researched. I felt confident ordering it and waited eagerly for its arrival and felt like it was a Christmas gift to myself ! It's easy to use and looks wonderful. I love it.

    This tiny, itsy-bitsy little microwave does more or less what it's supposed to. We've had no major issues with it so far, but MAN - it's weak. We put this in our office, and I'm used to a much more potent microwave at home, but you'll find you have to adjust / increase the time for all the stuff you want to cook or heat with this - at least for stuff coming right out of the freezer. It's kind of an adventure figuring out how long you ACTUALLY need to heat something since the directions on your food packages are usually developed for more powerful microwaves than this. And I don't mean an exciting adventure - like grabbing a golden idol off a pedestal, swapping a bag of sand of similar weight, and running for your life from a giant boulder that wants to crush you. I mean a stupid adventure like walking back and forth to the microwave, cursing all the while because you have to keep heating your food over again cause it wasn't in there long enough, and eventually eating food that's either undercooked and gross or overcooked (because you guessed wrong) and still gross. If I'd been spending my own money - or if I'm ever in the market for a new microwave at home - I'd not have pinched pennies. Get one with more than 700 watts.

    Great little microwave for any money

    Like most of us, one day we tried to use our microwave and nothing happened. After trying a few things, we decided that we had to purchase a new one but it had to be small, effecient and easy to use We read many reviews and even though this had its share of bad ones,there were enough good ones for us to try it and we're glad we did. Not only does it fit our counter space very well, but it is more powerful than we thought it would be, and very easy to use. And by the way, it was less expensive than most but not cheap looking. You wouldn't guess the price by just looking and using it. I strongly recommend this to anyone that needs to fit this little workhorse in a small space. Plus you can always take it back if you don't like it, but I can assure you that you won't.

    Product OK - Best Buy Store and experience - POOR

    I am highly disappointed with Best Buy - I am shopping for back to college and have had the following experiences: 1) Customer Service Rep at front of Flower Mound, TX store in response to a question related to Dynex brand: "I cant help you. I dont know anything about those items. I only work in camera". 2)Even after bringing a photo of what type of USB cord I needed for my printer, I was sold the incorrect cord. I returned it - looked again- and went to Walmart to purchase. 3) Online I bought a Dynex USB Ethernet Adaptor which came with a driver CD and instructions that referenced an online link for download if you didnt have a CD drive on your computer. THE LINK DID NOT HAVE A DOWNLOAD. I contacted Geek Squad via phone - while the agent was nice, he could not locate a direct download - resulting in the need for an external CD to load the driver software. 4)I made sure that I read several reviews and details of products before purchasing the external CD drive to ensure I had ALL the needed cords and connections. I am overall HIGHLY DISSATISFIED with my Best Buy experience in the Flower Mound, TX store and also via the website.

    Bought this 36hrs 5minutes and 3 seconds after our range-over microwave quit (12 years old). I don't know why I waited so long. My husband was out of town so I knew it would be a few weeks before we'd be able to replace the range-over. This is a nice little machine but not very roomy. I had to make do with some dishes. I liked it so much though that when we replaced the range over with a bigger one I didn't want to give it up! It heats well not so terribly bulky. I am keeping it for hurricane season because I think we can run it off the generator. Also, it doesn't have that pesky beep until you open the door. Yeah, I know, I found last night's herbal tea one morning but so what! At least it didn't keep nagging me like the new one does. We ended up using it for three weeks since the over range one we wanted was out of stock. There is no way I could have lived that long without a microwave..no way!
