Pro Open door reminder
The microwave will beep periodically if the door is left open for a prolonged time.

It can make popcorn almost perfectly using the preset mode.
Pro Large capacity
The oven has 2.0 cu. ft. of cooking space, which is enough for most situations. The 16" wide turntable is suitable for a large pizza or plate.
Pro Easy to clean
The curve-shaped cavity makes cleaning a lot more comfortable, compared to the standard square-shaped ones, that have hard-to-clean corners.
Con Bad for defrosting
The oven struggles with defrosting food. Doing this often results in a product being cold in the center and almost cooked on the edges.
Con No backlight for the buttons
Not only are the button themselves dark, they also don’t have a backlight. If your kitchen isn’t well-lit, this can be quite annoying.
Con Control panel isn't intuitive to use
While the microwave offers a lot of features, it can become confusing to use them because of the myriad of buttons found on the control panel.
Con The display clock won’t stay on
The clock will turn itself off after 15 minutes. To see the time, you need to push the “stop/clear” button. This can be frustrating for people who use the microwave as a primary clock for their kitchen.
