This unit has a very strong and effective blower. Although the packaging appeared solid, there was a noticeable "ding" in the hood. NO worries though, a replacement unit came quickly with no issues. It definitely enhanced our kitchens appeal! If I could change one thing about this unit, I would have had it manufactured slightly different so that the perimeter grommets used in fastening the hood together didn't shadow the face of the unit. You can barely see it, but if you get real close to the unit you can see the shadow of the grommets below. The light bulbs were also a chore to put in place. If you experience an issue with the bulbs, keep at it...you'll get them in eventually.
This was one of the most easy to install ,affordable,and nicest looking microwave I've ever bought,installed,and had above my stoves out of ALL the homes I've ever lived. GREAT APPLIANCE!!
Overall "good" rating. It is a good-looking unit. The three reasons that caused it to miss "excellent" are (1) clock only stays displayed while the microwave is in active use. I had become accustomed to relying on my previous microwave whenever I wanted to know the time while in the kitchen. (2) This microwave seems much more powerful than my previous appliance and I have not mastered recalculating cook times downward yet. (3) I thought the unit would fit into the existing opening in my kitchen cabinetry but it didn't so my handyman had to make custom trim -- there was no trim kit available that I could find.
