Comment:
I purchased the microwave at Kmart. Right out of the box, the microwave did not work properly. The turntable made jerky movements and a loud banging noise as it rotated and the unit did not rest evenly on the countertop. I returned the microwave to the store where I pruchased it and had no problem getting a full refund.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

CR missed the mark on its rating of this microwave. I returned the first unit because it was not consistent in cooking. If you set it for 30 sec. it would sometimes heat for only 23 seconds then stop. I exchanged it for the same model and after 1 week had the same issue, plus this one makes a whining noise, as though the turn table is dragging. The plastic film over the start button is pealing off. Very disappointed in the quality and performance.
