Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HomeZoo WONDERFUL AND CLASSIC! LOVE IT!
I bought several Nostalgia Electrics products from Home Depot, which by the way has the best pricing! This microwave is AWESOME!!!! Operates like any other microwave so I don't understsnd some of the other reviews. The function keys are terrific for preset times although I just usually time things myself. BUT... The design is soooooo beautiful and fun! I have a retro kitchen, so all the Nostalgia bright red retro designs are just stunning! I'm so happy and highly recommend!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by musicalred Very cute. Not very powerful.
I redecorated my kitchen to a vintage/retro style, so when I saw this microwave I had to have it. Everyone thinks it adorable. However, it is not very powerful, so if that is what you are looking for, look elsewhere.

I am very pleased with this retro-inspired microwave - have had it for almost a month now and it works great and looks awesome. Have already had compliments on it - no regrets.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SkiSoccerSail This microwave is almost a piece of furniture - a great conversation starter
Microwave ovens are a dime a dozen by now. I bought this one for looks (retro - since I moved into an old house and the kitchen had furniture 50's style) and color (red). Furthermore it was small enough to fit perfectly under my cabinet.
Once reading the manual and starting to work with the knobs I was very pleasantly surprised about the features and ease of using it.
My biggest pet-peeve with microwaves always was setting the time and that once you started to cook, it was next to impossible to alter the time. You had to wait there when until the countdown hit 15 secs and then push "stop". Even initial time settings besides the 30secs or full mins were hard to come by. This one is different. The (multi-function) knob lets you with absolute ease adjust time AFTER you actually started the cooking - once a smarty pants bystander says you should only do it 15 secs - no problem. Not just decrease, also increase by any amount you like. Also, the defrost is a breeze. Given the size, it's not meant to help you cook Thanksgiving dinner for your clan, but it is more than adequate for a couple supplementing their culinary skills.
When my daughter first visited me in my new place she instantly gravitated towards the "red box", wondering what this was, and chirping "how cute and different" upon realizing what it was - as I said, this microwave doubles as a great conversation starter.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gordo1 The retro microwave is great. The one suggestion I have is that the turn plate inside could be better stablized.
We are truly enjoying our Retro Microwave. It is pleasing to the eye with it's unique retro exterior and we like it's ease of operation. Home depot should carry more unique items such as this in their stores. That would certainly separate you from the other big box stores.We have only had it for a few weeks so we do not know if it is contributing to any energy savings.
