Con Too noisy to use at night or when it's too quiet at home
Because the door and microwave panel is too tight, the door opens and closes very loudly, like a suction and slamming sound. Along with the beeping sound, this makes it too loud for nighttime use.
Con May be loud for some
It beeps 5x when it's done warming food and it continues beeping even after you've opened the door. This high-pitched sound may be a bit obnoxious for some.
