Comment:
Our NN-H965BF was purchased in 2006, replacing our old Kenmore and has been in use almost daily. It's more powerful (1250 watts) than any microwave we've owned before, which required the family to adjust the cooking time we were used to (somethings got a bit over cooked in the beginning). <br /><br />For the most part it's used to make microwave dishes, heat liquids and reheat leftovers using the Inverter power feature. <br /><br />Overall, it does a fairly good job. Most food are heated fairly evenly except when using Asian style deep bowls. My only real complaint is the defrost feature, the presets and weight setup still overheated the food. <br /><br />As for any problems, only one after 9+ years of use and the kids slamming the door, the door would lock so we couldn't cook. I discovered that the 2 screws holding the door catch assembly inside the microwave came loose, so all I did was tighten the screws and now its working good as new.
