It's the easiest appliance to use. Just unwrap it and plug it in! The timer isn't obnoxiously loud, the rotating plate inside works great, and everything cooks smoothly. We didn't need a gigantic one, and this is just the right size for leftovers, popcorn, and soup. The button to pop the door open is a bit awkward but it functions just fine. The decor matches both our black and stainless appliances. I would definitely purchase again, and recommend to a friend.
I initially purchased this product because it was small, inexpensive and seemed adequate for my (light) use. I bought a microwave of similar quality and price 10 years ago and it had lasted me all that time. Unfortunately, this mircowave lasted for about 5 minutes.
I immediately tested it with a small frozen dinner. It seemed to heat well and evenly, but when I pushed the button at the bottom right to open the door, the entire contol panel above it popped off. I could see the wires behind it. I pushed it back in place, but each time the door release was pushed the panel would come loose. It did not appear to be damaged at all, just very, very poorly constructed.
I couldn't trust such a shoddy product and returned it immediately in exchange for another brand. (Kmart staff was friendly and helpful.) I DO NOT recommend this product to anyone. This was my first Oster appliance and I will never purchase another from Oster. Extremely disappointing.
