Wanted to update my 20 year old microwave..this one is smaller but can accommodate a full size plate with just enough room to suit my cooking and reheating needs. It is stylish and simple, unobtrusive and suited for my occasional use. Seems to work great so far. Very reasonably priced.
I have searched for years to find a small footprint microwave that does NOT hog space on my counter and looks great in my sleek modern kitchen and has all the bells & whistles of full sized micros. And this Frigidaire, a quality manufacturer, is it! Believe it or not, the exterior is all metal (sides, top, & front) not plastic "stainless-look" and fits a regular sized dinner plate. Microwaves are not meant for real cooking; I reheat, defrost, make beverages, & you name it--it defrosts perfectly (by time or weight!--wow. ) It looks gorgeous on my counter, works beautifully, and I couldn't ask for more!
This is a great little microwave, fits in my small space. It's less powerful than other small micro's I've had: an instant oatmeal package, which typically takes 1 minute takes 1:30. Just an FYI but not a big deal Loud: Yes, it *is* loud. I dismissed the other reviewers' comments on the volume of the beeping, but man, they are spot *on*. Not only is it loud, it beeps several times. Eventually I will find the speaker and duct tape it. Don't discount the warnings of beep volume. If you can get past those two (small) issues, It's a great value.
I purchased this microwave for my basement bar and it's great. Does the job. Doesn't beep continuously if you don't open door right away. My last one did that and it was so annoying. I like it so much that I decided to purchase another one only slightly larger (9 cu) for my upstairs kitchen. Great purchase. You won't be sorry!
I wanted a tiny Mic that still fits a full size plate and this fits the bill won't fit anything a cm bigger it's pretty small. I try to use my microwave as little as possible but I've had it at least a year and works fine for everything I put in it, popcorn setting is eerie how perfect it pops the corn and works fine for a frozen dinner.
Looks much like I expected and behaves much like I expected. It's a cheaper microwave and it feels that way, but it does its job well. I like being able to hold down 1-9 and quick-start that many minutes. I read some complaints about it being too noisy (the beeping) but I disagree. One reviewer complained about the number of times it beeps, which is interruptable by opening the microwave door. Perhaps I'm realizing now that I like this little box more than I expected to. Hm. That's a good thing. :-)
We like this so well, we bought a second one for our son who will be going away to college. Fits perfectly in our tiny kitchen and matches our other stainless appliances. We use the popcorn button the most and it always pops full bags. Setting 1-6 are quick start, which is also convenient. I really don't have a bad thing to say about this little microwave. It was difficult to find one this small in stainless, so happy we did!
The microwave that I bought in 1998 was still going strong, but looked pretty sad in my shiny new kitchen so I bought this one. I wanted one with a sleek stainless look, and it had to have a small footprint for the spot where I wanted to put it. I had hoped to find one of higher quality, but they don't make 'em like they used to. The door is insubstantial and sounds tinny. In fact, this microwave overall is so lightweight that it shifts around when you push the buttons/open the door. I put some rubber bumpers on the bottom to keep it from moving (I wish Frigidaire had done that). It looks great and runs much more quietly than my 1998 Sharp Carousel, I'll give it that. I've only owned it for a few days but so far it works fine, no problems. (I'll update this review if that changes.) I just wish there were a way to turn off the beeping without opening it up and physically removing or disconnecting the beeper. It beeps pretty loudly, and when it's done cooking it beeps FIVE times which is excessive.
I love it. the only thing is I can't use timer and microwave at the same time
