The Oster OGG61403 is part of the microwave oven
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, countertop microwave oven
models like the OGG61403 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
This reflects how evenly a model reheated a dish of cold mashed potatoes.
This is based on how well the automatic-defrost program defrosted one pound of frozen ground chuck.
Speed of heating:
This score is based on the temperature rise of water heated in the microwave.

Watts This is the manufacturer's figure of the microwave power output. In general, the more watts an oven offers, the greater its cooking power-and the faster your food will be cooked. That said, differences in claimed wattage of 100 watts or less are unlikely to result in significant differences in performance.
Detailed prompts Display offers instructions to guide you through the cooking process.
Convection mode A few microwaves include a convection oven feature, which has a heating element and a fan that distributes heat. In convection mode, you can set the oven temperature as you would in a traditional oven to bake or roast items.
Sensor Controls the cooking and reheating time automatically. It shuts off an oven when it determines (usually by sensing steam) that food is hot enough.
Stainless/SS-look option Stainless-steel is stylish, but it shows fingerprints. Another option: a vinyl-covered metal finish that gives you a stainless-steel look but resists smudging.

The Beeper would drown out the Big Ben Tower. It is noisy while it is running, also. Only has 30 sec button; no auto buttons. No pre programed cycles. I mean why else do we buy a microwave, but for convenience, right? This oven is not convenient. It is roomy, but overall, I can't take the noise. I bought it because CR gave it a good rating. Going to return it today.
