Overall Rating - this microwave oven has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - 80% of the reviews for this Panasonic Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating, one of the highest approval ratings you will find for a microwave oven. This is a large and powerful microwave oven, something very much appreciated by most reviewers. The inverter technology on this model allows the different power levels to offer true power reductions, which leads to more even cooking and especially defrosting. A normal microwave set to 50% power cycles between 100% power and 0% power. The inverter technology allows this microwave to operate at a true 50%. This means you shouldn't end up with cooked edges on the frozen meat you are defrosting before the center thaws. This microwave oven also has sensor cooking, which allows the unit to know when your food is done. All reviews indicate this function works very well.

There are mixed reactions to the user interface, although most of the reviews in this regard are positive as well. This microwave oven has a dial rather than keypad. The dial itself feels very solid and sturdy. Most people thought the dial was easy to use and they prefer it to a keypad. Others long for the keypad they are accustomed to.

This countertop microwave oven can be converted to a built-in microwave with the purchase of the Panasonic 27" Stainless Steel Trim Kit for 1.6 cuft Stainless Steel Microwaves . This microwave has enough of a high-end look that it won't look out of place when converted,unlike some other countertop models. See 66 Microwave Oven Reviews

Most of the reviews paint a picture of an incredibly efficient and fast microwave oven. This microwave oven cooks quickly and evenly with an impressive 1300 watts and sensor technology. The microwave offers three different languages (English, French and Spanish.) This Panasonic microwave oven also has inverter technology and inverter turbo defrost. Check out our editor's review and ratings (the link is above) for more information on these features. This microwave oven also has a delayed start option. This is a fairly large microwave oven, with over a cubic foot of interior space. It has a beautiful modern look to it and feels solid and well-constructed.

So what will you find in the negative microwave oven reviews? Many people complained about an issue which has since been resolved by Panasonic: the readout on this microwave had been difficult to see from most angles, but that is no longer the case. Many other negative reviews were based on the controls. There are no numbers, only a dial. Some people feel the controls are not easy to figure out and in the beginning the user's manual is needed often. Others enjoy the simplicity you get with dial based controls.

Overall Reviews - 75% of the reviews for this Panasonic Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This microwave oven has sensor cooking, and the reviews indicate that it works quite well. There are quite a few handy features on this microwave, such as three different bag size settings for making popcorn. This is a smart and intuitive microwave oven. This model has a great safety feature: a child lock. This is much appreciated in homes with small children. It also has three languages to choose from: English, French and Spanish. This is a powerful microwave oven, with 1250 watts that provide quick and even cooking. Most of the reviews agree that this is a fabulous microwave oven and a great value for the price.

Almost all of the negative reviews for this microwave oven relate to the poor customer service provided by Panasonic. Unfortunately, this seems to be a growing problem with ALL microwave makers, not just Panasonic. As more and more customer service centers outsource to other countries, the service inevitably declines. See 176 reviews for this Panasonic Microwave Oven

Microwave Oven Type - This is a countertop microwave oven

Watts – 800 watts

External Size - this microwave oven measures approximately 19 x 14.3 x 11.1 inches and weighs 26.2 pounds

Interior Space - This microwave oven has an interior 4/5-cubic-foot capacity

Overall Rating - This microwave oven has an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - 77% of the reviews for this Panasonic NN-SD377S Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. This is a compact microwave oven. Yet it still has a rotating turntable, something often praised within the reviews. The reviews speak glowingly of the easy to use control dial which is used in place of the standard keypad controls found on most microwave ovens. The authors of most of the reviews find the controls to be very intuitive and easy to use. This microwave oven works very well; it heats evenly and quickly, especially for a compact model.

Many people expect this to be a compact version of the Panasonic Prestige (listed at the top of the Panasonic page) which has no difference other than wattage or size. It is important to realize that this is not the case. The Panasonic Prestige uses inverter technology to deliver true power choices. Basically it is capable of operating at 50% power (or many other power settings) where most other microwaves (including this one) don't actually have the ability to work at 50% power. Instead, they utilize a rotation of 100% power on and off to get the desired percentage. This is not quite as effective as true 50% power, especially when defrosting, but it is the way most microwaves work.

The most often repeated complaint found in the reviews has to do with the digital display. There are many reviews that refer to problems with reading the display from different angles and heights. Panasonic has addressed this issue and the microwaves sold now no longer have that problem. Another issue that pops up in the reviews is the awkward cord placement. This issue has still not been resolved by Panasonic and it is something you should be aware of before you buy this microwave oven. Oddly, the cord does not come out of the back of this microwave oven. The cord comes out of the right side towards the front of the microwave oven. This means, unless there is a wall to the right of where you intend to place your microwave oven, you will need to run the cord across your countertop. It exits about two inches from the front of the unit. See 94 Microwave Oven Reviews

Overall Reviews - 71% of the reviews for this KitchenAid Microwave Oven are very favorable and accompanied by a 5 star rating. This is a very well powered microwave oven with the added peace of mind that comes with KitchenAid's long standing reputation for quality. This is a beautiful, sleek, modern appliance that just has the look and feel of a high-end appliance. It is quite large; with a one and a half cubic foot capacity, this one is perfect for large families or anyone who tends to prepare a lot of food in the microwave oven. This is a powerful microwave oven capable of cooking your food quickly and evenly with 1200 watts of power. This microwave oven can be installed as a built-in or used on the countertop. If you choose the latter, keep in mind its large size and make sure you have enough available real estate on your counter top. Most people don't realize just how large this microwave oven is.

There are two negative reviews for this microwave oven. The author of the first negative review had the microwave for 4 years then had a problem with the door opening. Rather than finding out how much it was to repair the broken door, that person threw out the entire microwave (which was still in working order, excluding the door problem.) Repairs like those are normally easily done by the microwave owner with a part that usually costs less than $20. The second poor review actually admits they have never owned this microwave oven, but felt the need to leave a review since they had troubles with a similar microwave.

Interior Space - this microwave oven has an internal 1.4 cubic-foot capacity

Overall Rating - this microwave oven has an overall rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - An impressive 84% of the reviews for this Amana Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. While there are only twenty reviews available, they do still give you a good idea of what to expect from this microwave oven. One reviewer actually dropped her Amana microwave on the floor and it suffered no damage, certainly a testament to its sturdiness. All the reviews paint a picture of a solid, well-constructed microwave oven.

This Amana microwave oven is available in white; this is welcome news to many people who have found most microwave ovens today are only available in stainless steel. This microwave oven has sensor cooking, and the reviews show it to work well. This oven heats quietly and quickly.

Most of the reviews heap praise on the intuitive and easy to use controls. Another favorite feature is the adjustable sound. Amana took into consideration that there is no one perfect sound level. Someone who uses their microwave at night while someone else is sleeping in the next room will obviously prefer a different sound level than someone who wants to hear if the food is ready while doing chores on the other end of the house. It's little features like that that show Amana truly thinks about a customers wants and needs, and that does come through in the final product. See 20 reviews for this Amana Microwave Oven

Warranty – Three year limited

Overall Rating - this microwave oven has an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - 33% of the reviews for this Cuisinart Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. The low rating is mostly due to problems or perceived problems with the convection feature. Most reviews agree that this Cuisinart is a great microwave oven, which does everything you expect out of a solid microwave oven.

So what's wrong with the convection oven feature on this microwave oven? What is mentioned most in the reviews is the inordinate amount of time this Cuisinart takes to warm up. Some claim that this can take as long as an hour. A few people wrote that they put the food into the microwave oven while it was warming and by the time it had reached the desired temperature, the food was done. This avoids wasting time waiting for the warm up. Our suggestion: if you do purchase this microwave oven, immediately try the convection feature. If it does not work to your satisfaction, return it for a refund. Since it seems to be a matter of personal preference, this is the best way to determine if this is the microwave oven for you.

Overall Reviews - 55% of the reviews for this GE Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating.

That is not a problem for everyone; 10 years ago 700 watts was the norm and some people are still comfortable with that power level.

The negative reviews for this microwave oven hate it for its small size and lack of power. If you are looking for a heavy-duty microwave oven, this isn't it. If you want a small, light microwave oven that doesn't cost too much, you may want to consider this one. See 11 reviews for this GE microwave oven

Overall Reviews - 59% of the reviews for this Haier Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. Most people feel this is an excellent compact microwave oven. It doesn't take up a lot of space and is very inexpensive.

There are quite a few complaints scattered about the reviews regarding the sticker on the microwave door, which is incredibly difficult to remove. Some people spent as long as an hour trying to remove the sticker and its residue. Just as many people said a little bit of Goo Gone gets rid of it quickly. So be sure to have Goo Gone on hand if you choose this microwave oven.

The majority of negative reviews state this Haier microwave oven is too small and not powerful enough. Pay close attention to the size; this is a very small unit. Some see this as a pro, others a con. As far as power goes, this is a 700 watt microwave oven. The most common complaint is that food takes longer to cook in this microwave oven than package directions state. Most processed food with microwave oven instructions state that the times given are for a 1000 watt microwave. This is why a 700 watt microwave oven will need some extra time. If you buy this Haier microwave oven with realistic size and power expectations, you are likely to be happy with your purchase. Think first about what you plan on cooking and see if it will fit inside this compact microwave oven. See 86 Reviews for this Haier Microwave Oven

Overall Rating - this microwave oven has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - 73% of the reviews for this Kenmore Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. Most people absolutely adore the versatility of this combination pizza oven and microwave oven. You can use the pizza oven for more than just pizza; anything that fits within a 2 inch deep 12 x 12 baking dish can be cooked in there. It's perfect for when you want the browning or crispiness you just can't get from a microwave, without having to heat up your full-sized oven. This Kenmore microwave oven is powerful: it boasts 1100 watts and it does everything you want a microwave oven to do. The one caveat: you can't use both the pizza oven and microwave oven at the same time. Sad, but true.

That brings us to the negative reviews, of which there are only three. One review states that the pizza oven was working perfectly until trying to use the microwave at the same time. After returning the "defective" oven, that reviewer experienced the same problem with the replacement. This is a clear cut case of not reading the owner's manual that comes with the oven.

The second negative review comes from a consumer who did love this combo oven but had to have it repaired twice for the same issue. That issue was not repeated in any of the other reviews for this Kenmore microwave oven.

Overall, this is a great combination appliance which will give you a lot of versatility within the same footprint on your counter top. See 11 reviews for this Kenmore microwave oven

It also has a nice, high-end look with a stainless steel finish and black accents. It has a very solid, well-constructed overall feel to it. Another great feature that is important to a lot of families is the child safety lock-out option.

So what complains will you find lurking in the negative reviews? Some people feel the keypad and user interface is not as good as it can be. Many others disagree with them and believe they are not using their microwaves properly. They say the shortcuts and easy to use settings are there, just read the user's manual in the beginning. There are many reviews that complain about the plastic over the keypad either bubbling or scratching: this is a protective film that should be removed when you purchase the microwave oven. So please discount any negative reviews that refer to the plastic bubbling, scratching or peeling from the keypad as this is simply an oversight on the part of the reviewer.

Overall Rating - This microwave oven has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - 72% of the reviews for this Panasonic NN-SN667W Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. Many of the reviews heaped praise on this well-powered and solidly built microwave oven. It has inverter technology, which allows for a true reduction in power. Most microwaves just alternate between 100% power and 0% power when set for 50% power. The inverter technology lets this microwave oven truly operate at a steady 50% power (or any other power level chosen.) This is especially important when defrosting foods, as they are more likely to be defrosted though to the center without cooking the edges.

This microwave oven gives you the ability to mute all sounds; this can be a great feature if someone likes to use the microwave while others are sleeping. This model really packs a power punch with 1300 watts. This makes it cook quicker than most microwaves out there. This can also be a bad thing if you have old electrical wiring in your home. You may need to make sure you don't run other power-sucking appliances on the same circuit at the same time. This is a large microwave oven, equipped with a 13 1/2 inch turntable for even cooking.

So what will you find in the negative reviews? There are a lot of complaints about the protective mesh screen making it hard to see your food inside. This really annoyed some people; others don't care since most microwaved items don't need to be watched while cooking. Also, the interior light does not stay on when the door is open. This bothers some people; others feel their kitchens are well-lit enough and this is not an issue. These 2 items were bothersome enough for some reviewers that they actually returned the microwave oven. So if high visibility of food is at the top of your microwave oven wish list, this is not the best microwave oven for you. See 110 Microwave Oven Reviews

Interior Space - 1-cubic-foot capacity

Overall Rating - This microwave oven has an overall rating of 2.5 out of 5 stars

Overall Reviews - Only a dismal 29% of the reviews for this Cuisinart Microwave Oven were very favorable and accompanied by a 4 or 5 star rating. That is one of the worst approval ratings of any microwave that is still available, since companies normally scrap production of a model that fares so poorly. Let's start with what people liked. The biggest feature on this Cuisinart microwave oven that is not found on others is the stainless steel interior. First, it gives it a more expensive look than the standard plastic used in most models. Second, it makes it easier to clean.

This microwave has an actual handle instead of a push button for opening the door. This not only adds to the high-end look, but tends to prevent door issues down the road.

The majority of the negative reviews speak of both product failure and poor customer service. The latter issue seems to have been a problem with all Cuisinart products for the last 10 years or so. Read a few reviews for their other products, such as food processors or toaster ovens, and you will find many people who have experienced poor customer service from Cuisinart. It is a shame, since this is a well-regarded company as far as product quality is concerned. There are 51 detailed reviews available, written by real people who have used this Cuisinart microwave oven. See All 51 Microwave Oven Reviews
