The Emerson MWG9115SL is part of the microwave oven
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, countertop microwave oven
models like the MWG9115SL 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.
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.
Detailed prompts Display offers instructions to guide you through the cooking process.
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 microwave worked great for me. Bought it in Sept of '09 and it just barely started making weird noises &tripping the GFCI. I have it unplugged at the moment since it's making noises as if it were on when the door is closed & not in use. We got great use out of this microwave; using it 5-10 times per day for just about anything for over 3.5 yrs. I used the grilling part only once & was not impressed, I never used it again. The microwave part was great...now to go replace it :)
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

My husband cooks in it frequently my kids use it for popcorn and reheating. The interior is rusting and sparking. Store will not replace and unable to contact Emerson. Would not recommend at all!
