Rated 4 out of 5Â by nanajackson2010 Overall pleased with purchase
I don't use my microwave for anything complicated- I simply heat and/or reheat things- no gourmet meals being prepared, not cooking whole chickens, etc.- therefore, this item more than serves that purpose. It heats quickly and well, much better than the counter top microwave it replaced. My only concern - if you can call it that- would be that the door is rather loud when it closes and I'm sometimes bugged at having to push the cook button before just entering the time and start- minor annoyance at best. The size works for me because I don't really like when the oven protrudes too far beyond the front and/or bottom of the cabinet. Oh, and it's kind of weird that the name brand isn't actually on the oven.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Norma So clean, crisp looking as well as easy to use features
My husband installed this microwave easily, of course with a little help from me. We had installed the same
type in our last house and we enjoyed all its features, clean, crisp appearance. The performance was great and we no complaints with the previous one that is why we purchased another one for our new house. Thank you for providing such great service.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Disappointed DO NOT BUY THIS MICROWAVE!!
Bought this microwave in January, quit working in May. Magic Chef did a terrible job standing behind their product. Had to call many times to set up an appointment for the repair man and he never showed up or called, just left us hanging. I will never buy a Magic Chef product again due to their lack of customer service. Now, I''m fighting to get my money back. Good price but a bad product. DO NOT BUY THIS MICROWAVE

Rated 1 out of 5Â by hb101913 Worst Microwave EVER
we originally purchased this microwave in august of 2012. about a year later the microwave would not heat up any longer. We took back to home depot and received a refund check since we bought the warranty. So we got the exact same microwave thinking maybe that one was just a fluke (i mean who has ever had a microwave break?!) not even 6 months later the new microwave broke for the exact same reason! DO NOT BUY. if you do buy you will definitely want to ensure you buy the warranty because you will need it.
also... not the reason i hated this product BUT it is extremely loud. i can barely hear the pop corn popping over the noise of the microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MagicChefMan Our Second Magic Chef Microwave
I purchased this to replace a Magic Chef MCO160UB that we had for six years and used multiple times daily. We never had a problem with the MCO160UB, which is why we stayed with the brand. Another plus is the new MCO165UB microwave was easy to install since the bracket and screw positions in the cabinet match perfectly with the older unit. I didn't even have to use the new bracket - just mounted the new microwave to the old one & tightened the cabinet screws. No re-drilling necessary! I have had this unit for two months, and am hopeful it works a well as the unit it replaced. So far, it has been perfect. This unit does not have as many features as the more expensive microwaves, which is fine with me. I did purchase the additional two year warranty for a very small amount, but doubt I'll have to use it. Great product that looks sleek in our kitchen but is functional as well.
