Had to adjust all foods down due to 1100 watts oven to boiling water. Very noisy from day one. Key pad not user friendly. <br />***NOTE*** Early a.m. fast coffee, started smoking!

Comment:
We bought this product a couple of years ago and within 5 months or less it stopped working. Magic Chef did replace it with a new one with proof of purchace and the cord they had us cut from the broken one. Last night while cooking a squash for 20 min. it quit. It was extreamly hot and had no power at all. After letting it cool and finishing our squash in our gas oven it had power but, when I tried to heat a breakfast sandwich this morning, it is no longer heating up. I will never buy another Magic Chef appliance.

Comment:
I had loved this microwave till it gave out when it was 11 months old. What a disappointment!<br /><br />The speed of it now fluctuates, and although it continues to heat, it makes a sound as though it's going to explode; a loud grinding sound. I am buying a different brand tomorrow and will be throwing this one away.
