Don't buy

"I have owned this microwave for 15 months and it's no longer working. At first a few numbers quit working, now none of the numbers or buttons are working. It's not worth the price. Save yourself the trouble and go with a different brand."

So Far Great Buy

Date:January 14, 2014
"Have only had unit for a couple of weeks so cannot talk about time service. Have had many microwaves and this is by far the quietest microwave I have ever heard. All functions work great and will take some time getting adjusted to convection cooking as this is our first. Microwave controls are a bit different than I am used to so there is a small learning curve with that aspect.
Would recommend on experience so far."

Good Value

Date:September 30, 2013
"My first ever micro/convection oven. Replaced a separate microwave and convection oven. Quieter than my old microwave. Note that you should have an assortment of glass and/or ceramic cookware on hand. Plastic containers will not work in combination cooking or browning duties. Metal dishes are also out of bounds for combo cooking with microwave. Really like the full size browning element on top. Enough flexibility to accommodate more complicated roasting duties or a simple reheat of a cold coffee. High microwave wattage. Durability still an unknown as it's a new purchase. Occupies about the same space as a regular microwave but it will require more in the way of depth (approx. 19 inches)."

Look for another brand

Date:July 23, 2013
"The first I purchased broke after 3 months - the turntable stopped working. Fortunately it was easy to replace at the counter at CT - there is no servicing of these units, just replacement.
My second, replacement, has the same flaw as the first did: the clock: runs 5 minutes late every two days.
Both machines are very loud when in use!
All that said every feature works as expected - bake, grill, microwaving...

poor quality

Date:June 25, 2013
"The microwave is very loud when operating. The unit overall seems to be flimsy in construction and you not only hear the magnetron when it engages but also an oil can effect within the oven. You always need to add additional time to suggested cooking times as well as the normal time required by other microwaves with same power. The convection and grilling options are nice to have and seem to work well. Even though this unit is made in Canada and sold in Canada all sizes and weights are only in ounces and pounds and not metric. In Canada we normally deal in metric so conversion has to be done every time. Had the unit for about a month when after doing some potatoes the unit just shut down. The unit had to be unplugged for several hours before it came back to life. Returned the microwave for a refund. I would not recommend this even at the $169 price point."

All Microwave Ovens Should Have These Features

Date:April 14, 2013
"We had been looking for an affordable Convection Microwave for a couple of years, the only other units are either huge or over the range type that cost over $700. And who has space for two or three separate appliances when they can easily be built into one? This one packs a lot of great features into a small counter top oven. It works great as a microwave, it works well as a convection oven, it even has a broiler on the top and the interior is stainless steel! It saves a lot of energy not having to heat up our big range just to reheat left-overs. Reheating pizza and other food is SO much better using the Grill/Micro combo, we use the "G2" setting most often (36% micro / 64% grill.) However, it would be nice if you could program your own combo settings, they are pre-set but convenient. The auto on and add 30 sec. features are also very handy. Why don't all microwaves have these features?
Our only complaint and CAUTION is the outside gets very hot using the convection or grill mode, especially the left side; they should simply design it with an inch of insulation. Make sure you have ample space and non combustible or meltable material on the left side.

Noisy

Date:November 2, 2012
"Unit seems to function alright but is excessively noisy when the magnetron is in operation.Never heard any other microwave make this much noise to the point we might just return it."
