Comment:
If I had it to do all over again I would pick a different microwave, one that included such recipes as baked potatoes, rice, etc. My old one did and it was so easy to just choose what I wanted to cook and it auto cooked it, I didn't even have to tell it how many or how much. Wish I could take this one back.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I do not understand why people complain about the noisy, it is no more noisier than any other microwave. The microwave works much better than the one I had. Heats much faster and the sensor reheat button is great, I just put an item in the oven and press the button and it heats the item without ever over or under cooking. Which I have a problem with since I am not sure exactly how much time to reheat something.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
