Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 123 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great medium size microwave This is a replacement for a 12 year old Magic Chef micro exactly like this one in stainless steel, but with a handle for the door. This new one has the handle removed, replace by a push button to open the door, and we have no problem with it because I put about a one foot 2 x 4 behind the micro between the micro and the counter back-splash so you have no problem opening the door and not moving the micro when you push the door open button... see photo. This new one works just like the old one (reliable) and has some new option buttons like 'Popcorn' and 'Memory'. We like this one just as much as the old one. This one heats up and cooks fast, and we hope just as reliable as the old one. New owners should read the manual to learn how to use the 'Power' button and how to input specific timed cooking, it's easy. Love it. January 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I love this Magic Chef Microwave I recently purchased this 900 watt microwave. Before I used it, I was concerned that the watts would not cook as fast as my previous 1000 watt microwave. I found that the microwave cooked just as fast and did a better job with foods, cooking them more evenly than my previous one. The stainless finish is easy to clean and looks good next to my toaster oven. There is a turntable inside and many settings for foods I cook or defrost often. It is easy to use. February 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Does the Job and Looks Good I was looking for a very small stainless steel microwave for an affordable price, nothing fancy, just something to heat up my leftovers and popcorn from time to time. This microwave has met my expectations. Pros: stainless steel (looks nice, especially for the price), works well, compact size, basic buttons/features, simple, the start button is also a +30 second button. Bonus points for fitting perfectly under my toaster oven. Cons: Doesn't stop beeping when you open the door, the button to open the door sticks a little and is also louder to open and close than most microwaves I've used (I have a newborn, so I may be more sensitive to loud noises than most).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Definnitely a step up from my last oven I really like this microwave oven. It pretty much is as described in the ad. My only complaint is with the button for opening the door. It is very hard to use, and not good for arthritic hands. Like the speed and efficiency this product provides. January 22, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Fan not working i guess after less than a year The inside of our microwave is now always dripping wet. Ive never had a microwave do this. We only bought it 9 months before it started doing this. I do have cookbooks on either side of the microwave but after the water issue made sure the books were not blocking the one side vent . There is room behind the microwave and above it. Dont know if we broke it with the books or not. Have to get a new one now because the water inside comes back with each use and can cause mold if not wiped up. January 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice microwave. I bought this microwave after reading reviews. It is super quiet and powerful for my purposes. If I were to criticize anything it would be the door does not open very smoothly but I can live with that. April 21, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Countertop Microwave I placed this microwave kitty-corner on the kitchen counter. It looks great and works fine. The only quirk is that the push button to open the door is hard to push... February 17, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little microwave oven This s GREAT little microwave oven! I purchased it as a replacement for a failed 4-year-old 1200 Watt, 1.0 cu. ft. unit from another manufacturer (they don't make 'em like they used to). In my opinion, the power of the 1200 W unit was too high for the volume and it was nearly impossible to get good results. The power of this microwave is much more appropriate for its size. My only complaint is with the instruction manual -- probably the worst I've ever seen. If they're off-shoring the manufacturing to save money, at least they should hire someone with English language competence and a little bit of technical ability to write (or translate) the manual. Oh yeah, another gripe is that I purchased this for $89.97 six days ago, and it's now twenty bucks cheaper. Buy it while it's so cheap! February 24, 2011
