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.

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.

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.

The enamel has peeled off the inside base already. This has put me off all SWAN products.

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.

Style over substance
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Had for just over a year. Left door ajar to cope with condensation. The back of the microwave has now cracked and rusted anyway and very rapidly. Shortest time ever had a microwave. Loks good but not well made.

Glad I bought this. Goes with my fridge freezer too.
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I really like this. Good looking and copes well for my needs.This is a nice looking product, goes well with fridge freezer and has done its job well.However, we discovered that the paint was coming offand showed signs of rust, so:We ordered a replacement, refurbished, which, did not work.We ordered a second refurbished replacement, just received. One of the screws on the chassis was loose and the door looked like it was not on properly and, crucially, it doesn't work either. The light did't work, the fan wouldn't stop and it didn't heat anything.How these pass any Quality Control issues is a mystery not to mention the sheerinconvenience it has caused.Not impressed at all.

Paying for form over function
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

Looks great and is powerfulDown side is that you are paying an extortionate amount of money for a product with virtually no enhanced features. If we did not have the rest of the range, I would have bought a model with more functionality but it does not detract from the fact that this is still a decent quality item
