Comment:
The microwave is very unreliable. It stopped heating within 4 months of installation. It stopped heating again after warranty had expired. Cost $80 for service call. Factory authorized repair person would not remove it from above the stove to even examine it. I had to hire someone else to take it down and put it back up. Do not buy this microwave.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Pros
Door Shuts Securely
Cons
Breaks Down
Best Uses
Comment:
Microwave was used primarily for warming food or heating a mug of water for tea. The magnetron went out after less than two years of use. Our previous microwave used for the same purposes lasted for 20 years without any problems and was still working well when we replaced it with the over-the-range Frigidaire.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Worst Microwave I have ever owned

Comment:
This is less than 2 years old. It broke the first time just out of the 1 year warranty. It was repaired the first of May of 2013 for more than half of what we paid and has quit heating again toward the end of November. We bought this because it was supposedly a professional model which means it should last longer. If you want a pretty microwave, then this is for you but if you want one that actually works for a while, this is NOT it.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
