Good value basic microwave

Good value basic microwave. Two dials so you can't go wrong. Temperature and time, easy to use but basic... hard to get exact time if seconds are required but I'm happy.

OK for occasional use. Not great not bad
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

It’s a very basic microwave. Yes it’s overpriced for what it does. It’s small, not very powerful or has fancy features. Here it’s all about the looks. I use microwave only occasionally when I don’t have time for oven to heat up. It’s nice to have an alternative that looks good in the kitchen. So it works for me so far. But yeah, it’s just OK.

Simple to use
Reviewed on Amazon.co.uk

I use it for reheating drinks or cooking prepacked meals. I didn't want any complicated programming buttons, I only need one button for time and another for power which this has. They've managed to make the time setting overly fussy. There are two ways to do it, repeatedly pressing the express button steps up in 30 second intervals and then you press start. Or you can press Start which immediately starts cooking for 1 minute. You can adjust the cooking time in 10 second steps using the rotary dial or repeatedly pressing the start button but only after you've started cooking, which is a bit odd. It also has a setting for defrosting which is useful and one other for weight of food which I shall never use.It's only 700W so you have to add a few seconds to some instructions which only give times for 800W or 900W.The interior is small, my dinner plate will not fit, but it's big enough for what I want. I like the cream colour.For the first few times that I used it it made some unsettling clicking noises but it's settled down now.Sadly, when you leave the door open the interior light stays on. I like to leave the door open for a while to let moisture disperse, much better would be for the light to automatically switch off after a short time.But overall I like it, and it takes up less worktop space than my previous rusted de Longhi.

½ cup macaroni, 1 cup water, ½ cup grated cheddar cheese, Pinch of salt


1. Add the macaroni to a microwavable mug of at least 350ml and cover with water, adding a pinch of salt. You may need to vary the water level depending on mug size, ensuring there is enough to cover the pasta.

2. Microwave on full power for a total of 8 minutes, or until al dente, stirring after every 2 minutes and adding more water if necessary.

3. Add the cheese to the pasta, mixing with the small amount of water remaining at the bottom of the mug.

2. Meanwhile, place the salmon in a microwavable container with the lemon and dill. Season and cover with cling film. As soon as the potatoes are cooked, cook the salmon on full power for 3 minutes. If necessary, extend the cooking time by up to 2 minutes, checking at regular intervals until the salmon is cooked through.

3. Finally, wash and trim the asparagus, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes, then serve with the salmon and potatoes.

Avoiding Mishaps

To avoid any microwave mishaps it is recommended to take extra care with the following:

Low moisture foods (eg. cereals, bagels, dried pasta, pulses and chocolate)

- These must be cooked on a low power level for a very short length of time, or preferably not at all.

High sugar content foods (eg. jams, syrups)

- These foods can become easily ‘super-heated’ when cooked in a microwave oven.

Foods containing alcohol

- Foods with an alcohol content must not be cooked in a microwave as they could ignite.

Foods with a membrane or outer skin (eg. fruits, sausages, potatoes)

- Food with a sealed or none porous skin must be pierced to allow pressure and steam to escape
