Comment:
Worked great in the first couple months. About 3.5 months after use, I noticed it was taking longer and longer to heat, thaw, or use any of the settings. The constant beeping is irritating, and the turntable is constantly rattling. Highly disappointed.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
Microwave is very noisy when using it for more than 30 seconds. When first purchased it was not noisy, but after two weeks of usage, the microwave became noisy. Anytime I use the microwave for more than 30 seconds it is annoyingly noisy. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
How did this get such good Consumer Report review? Bought ours on this advice and it was pure junk. Notice I said WAS, had the microwave for about 4 months and it just quit working all together. Tried to reset several times and nothing. Just seems to have locked up. Don't buy this one!!!!!!
