The Danby DMW111KBLDB is part of the microwave oven
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, countertop microwave oven
models like the DMW111KBLDB are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This reflects how evenly a model reheated a dish of cold mashed potatoes.
This is based on how well the automatic-defrost program defrosted one pound of frozen ground chuck.
Speed of heating:
This score is based on the temperature rise of water heated in the microwave.

Watts This is the manufacturer's figure of the microwave power output. In general, the more watts an oven offers, the greater its cooking power-and the faster your food will be cooked. That said, differences in claimed wattage of 100 watts or less are unlikely to result in significant differences in performance.
Detailed prompts Display offers instructions to guide you through the cooking process.
Convection mode A few microwaves include a convection oven feature, which has a heating element and a fan that distributes heat. In convection mode, you can set the oven temperature as you would in a traditional oven to bake or roast items.
Sensor Controls the cooking and reheating time automatically. It shuts off an oven when it determines (usually by sensing steam) that food is hot enough.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless-steel is stylish, but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.
This is eventually going in my office as a second microwave. My large space saver over my range just broke so this one is temporarily my main one. It heats water fast and does all you need it to do at a very fair price. I just don't care for the clumsy latch and I can't see the touchpad at night without a flashlight.<br />It is more suitable for a dorm, small kitchen/studio and it needs to be against a wall or it tips easily.

I had to replace a very expensive microwave that died on me after only 13 months of use. I decided to go for a cheaper microwave because let's face it, who really cooks using a microwave. This is a steal for the price and looks fantastic in my kitchen with all the other stainless steel appliances.
