Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Beeps can be silenced
This is one of the few microwaves that has a mute mode for its beeping sound. This makes it ideal to use during early mornings when you're preparing for work and everyone's still asleep.
Pro Has a small footprint
Approximately only 11 x 17 inches, this is a very compact choice for small households, dorms, and even RVs. It doesn't eat much counter space.
Pro Helps prevent unwanted operation
A lockout function helps prevent the microwave from being accidentally started and used by children. Press and hold the cancel/off button for three seconds to activate/deactivate the safety system. When the control panel is locked, the lock indicator will be lit. This also prevents the oven from operating while the door is open.
Pro You can easily open the door
This microwave has a push button on the lower right that releases the door from its latch. It allows you to effortlessly open the door compared to having to exert force.
Con Has a small cavity
While a regular dinner plate fits on the turntable, it doesn't really fit through the microwave door unless you tilt the plate to an angle. To solve this, use a smaller plate or a bowl when heating food.
