Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

You can choose from three modes; convection, microwave, or both. Cooking has never been so easy on a microwave.
Not only this the scratch-resistant stainless steel interiors offers easy cleaning and keeps you safe from the hazardous exposure of nonstick Teflon.
It also has sensor cooking which helps to heat certain common foods perfectly without any guesswork.
The interior has a LED light which gives you clear visibility of your food during cooking.
The heating element at the top aided with the convection fan in the rear replicates oven-like results to say the least. This microwave, I believe takes it away right here.
Unlike regular microwaves that turn off after operation, the warm hold function allows you to cook food and keep it at serving temperature.
- Bustle
The triple heat distribution system ensures even distribution of heat in the cavity and even cooking.

What reviewers didn't like

We think the microwave mode is underpowered as it took a few more minutes than we expected to heat food.
Can be inaccurate with heating
Needs some clearance besides already being quite heavily built.
The cavity is squarer than rectangular
