The size and contemporary style of this Oster microwave is perfect for any countertop, dorm room or home entertainment area. With 6 pre-set menus (including potato, pizza, popcorn, beverage, frozen dinner and reheat) and 10 power levels, cooking and re-heating has never been easier. Additional features include a child lock, digital display, cooking complete reminder, +30 second option and kitchen timer.
Bought this microwave due to its size, unpack it today and starting using it, something is definitely wrong with it. Very noisy and has a crackling sound, with hesitation on the rotating plate. Have to have someone repack it for me so I can return it....NOT HAPPY! You get what you pay for.
I bought this a year ago, I should have returned it the first day but I thought it was user error. The plate does not sit right at all, from day 1. I have tried every way of putting it on correctly but it's just not made to fit the microwave. It makes an ungodly noise while turning and stops turning, It's unnerving, I had 3 people try to put the plate on and it thunked around every time as soon as it started to turn. I haven't used it in months. I am putting this up locally for free (with a comment on the noise in the posting, maybe it won't bother someone if they are getting it free) just to be rid of it. I've never had an issue with a microwave before.
Just purchased the microwave at the end of Sept. The microwave in working just great. I am very happy that I purchased it. I need this size because of the limited space I have on the counter . I actually replaced the last one I had, which was purchased in 2012. I think the microwave has been improved which is very good. ( I want to make - I had purchased one earlier in the month at the same store and it came defective - one of the feet was shorter than the other. So I returned it to the store and purchased another one).
Arrived damaged and the door does not clse completely. Looks as if it was dropped on the corner or just a defective machine.
