I bought this on sale for $75 at Ame's, which is now out of business in my area. It's a good microwave for the price but don't expect a perfect microwave with tons of bells and whistles. Do expect a fairly good microwave with basic features that will last a long time, if not used too heavily. It has lasted a while without incident.

It has a simple one rotating timer dial, so anyone can figure it out. It can be set from under one minute to up to fifteen minutes. Once set, an oven light comes on and the dial will rotate back as it runs down. A bell rings when it is done.

One annoying thing is that when setting the timer needs to be set to less than 2 minutes, you need to turn it past 5 minutes then back to the set time. That is easy to forget.

Another negative is that 600 Watts is its only setting. So, it's full power all the time. This makes it difficult when the food packaging says to change to 50% power during the cooking process. It takes some getting used to and a little trial and error.

A cool feature is the rotating glass tray inside, which rotates your food for even heating. Of couse, due to it's size, things like popcorn bags are too long to have room to spin.

It comes with a manual with recipes inside.

This isn't a bad microwave, if you just need it for small things, such as drinks or frozen dinners. It's not great if you use it for bigger, elaborate dinners.
