After reading some of the reviews I was just a little nervous about buying this particular model...especially since I had never heard of Oster microwaves. But very nice and better than I expected. Runs so much better than my old one and perhaps quieter even. Heats evenly and quickly. Hope to get lots of use out of it. Would not hesitate to recommend.
Love this microwave. I was worried that since it had more power [1200 watts] than my old one [1100 watts], figuring out new cooking times would be complicated but I found a chart that shows a conversion table. The time/power difference is 5 seconds less a minute with the 1200 watt and using that, everything turns out perfectly. The panel is easy to understand and it is very quiet when running. I highly recommend this product.
Got this at the base exchange and as soon as I saw the Oster name I grabbed it because I have had so many good Oster appliances. First, the bottom of the control panel wasn't secured so every time you opened the door the panel cam with it. Then I went to open it and the handle turned sideways. Seems the bottom of the handle isn't secured either. The turntable doesn't always work, the cam that turns slips. Some of the functions on the control panel don't work. I hate this piece of junk. Reading reviews from other places I find others are experiencing same things.
HIgh power microwave functions consistently and dependably. Easy to change clock when power fails. power hungry so it trips the breaker when the unit and coffeemaker run in tandem. Easy to clean up and looks good in my kitchen. minimal buttons to make use easy and straight forward. I like it. Hope it lasts.
Got my microwave in less than twenty four hours. Great choice of microwave and company. Couldn't be happier with my decision of making the decision of looking into overstock.com the first time I ordered something online and a plus for the free shipping and overnight shipping.
