Comment:
Looks great, especially in stainless steel, however I'll never again buy Maytag/ Whirlpool. Costs more to repair than to buy a new one & believe me, it will break down. Unfortunately, I did not research before buying, I will going forward. Do yourself a favor and stay away from these lemons.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have owned this model for 4 years and am now faced with replacing my 2nd Magnetron tube. It will cost $275 with labor. There is no warranty on this tube although I see a year later they put in a special warranty on Magnetron tubes. They must have realized all the problems. I will never buy a Maytag microwave again.
