Swan renewed microwave that had rusted and after 6 months the door has cracked for no reason.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I purchased my first Swan microwave from Amazon. After a short time it went rusty inside the door and on the bottom. Swan replaced this and said it wasn't covered by a guarantee as the first microwave's guarantee had expired. After 6 months, barely used, I noticed the door frame had completely cracked in the corner. Swan has said they won't do anything about it. I asked if it could be a faulty batch and they would not answer this question. They did offer me 30pc off a new Swan product but after the poor customer service, I wouldn't buy another Swan product. I'm very disappointed as the microwave matches my Swan fridge, which i love.

Potentially dangerous
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I should have followed my instincts and purchased a competitor product instead of accepting a replacement when this microwave showed signs of rust after only a few months use. We are throwing out the replacement after three years as it has developed the same rust problems at the internal seams as the original and the internal base has rusted, bubbled and detached. I have followed all the instructions regarding cleaning and venting the microwave but the bottom line is that this microwave is high on retro style but extremely poor on structural quality. As the white base material appears to be covering a metallic layer, this is potentially a very dangerous product to have in your kitchen.

It looks great and is a good size (I wanted one that wasn’t too big).. It is very noisy which is a problem as I have a kitchen sitting room and it is disturbing for anyone watching TV etc.

Over heated!
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I had to return it as it was getting hot and over heating especially on the top metal surface.

Looks nice smaller than our old one. Design flaw the class plate balances and teters on the centre spindle motor without any support from a circle of wheels which are in most other micro waves so have to make food/vessel right in centre of plate.

Rust after 16 months
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Purchased April 2016, but had to throw away in August 2017. Not in heavy use either. As other people commented, condensation is terrible. Despite leaving door open after using, it started to rust inside. Before the rust showed, the white coating inside discoloured and began to bubble. Would not recommend as I've seen a few people have had similar problems regarding the rust.

Very poor finish, returned to Argos!
Reviewed on Argos.co.uk

I was really surprised, on opening the box, to see the microwave had such a poor finish. In the photos it looks lovely - shiny, black, good quality. However, in 'real life', the colour on the top was lighter than that on the front. Also, the overall colour was more charcoal than black and patchy in places. This made it look old and tired. I didn't feel the finish would have survived much cleaning either so swapped it for a Delonghi stainless steel 900w microwave for £10 less! It's excellent!

Small size.. Seems to be of poor quality. Flimsy construction. Cut my hand on the plastic insert on the door as I was taking a plate out of the microwave. Now have a mark on my hand thanks to this microwave.

Loved the retro look and colour of this microwave
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Loved the retro look and colour of this microwave. I bought this in April 2016, I didn't start using it until the November as we'd been waiting for our kitchen renovation to be completed. It's only used once maybe twice a week to reheat meals or the odd bowl of beans/spaghetti. I always make sure I leave the door open for it to vent after use and that the bottom doesn't have any pools of water, but after only 4/5 months of use the inside had gone rusty and it's barely useable. Before the rust showed, the white coating began to bubble and I only noticed this when I was heating a bag of popcorn and the bag caught fire because the turning plate had jilted and jammed, pushing the popcorn bag up against the side of the microwave! It was a good job I was in the same room keeping an eye on it otherwise it could have been a lot worse than just a scorch mark inside the microwave! Would not recommend as I've seen a few people have had similar problems regarding the rust.

looks good. I just wanted a straight forward microwave, no fancy programmes/weighing etc. That's not what I ended up with. That will teach me to buy off the internet!

As others have put here the condensation created by this oven results in the interior coating peeling off. The exposed inside rusts instantly.Thank goodness for Amazon customer service who have agreed a full refund with no fuss after 14 months. Amazon 5 star service for a one star product.
