Retro Series 0.9 cu. ft. Countertop Microwave in Red is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 80.

Works great for my needs. Yes, wattage is a bit lower than my previous microwave, so cooking time is a bit longer, but that's a small trade-off for its looks. I've had it for about a month. I do not use it every day. I do not keep it plugged in unless I need to use it. The interior light goes off when door is opened after cooking. I would prefer it stay on until I remove the food and close door again. Also, the beeping when cooking time is done runs through its entire beep cycle--it does not stop when I open the microwave door. I would have preferred this appliance to do so. The chrome door handle has a slightly rough seam. My concern there is that, with time, the chrome could chip off. I am treating the microwave with greater care than I have with any other because I sense that its looks could spoil without it--the finish might scratch a lot faster than another's.

I wish I had read the hundreds of negative internet reviews before buying this microwave. Do your own internet search for this microwave and read all the reviews before deciding to purchase it. I will never buy ANY Nostalgia Electrics products in the future.

You could turn the dial to start the cook time and it would start counting down but not actually heat up. We were able to unplug it for a while and plug it back in to get it to start working again. This happened a couple of times. After about a year and a half it stopped and would not start again. we tried to unplug it multiple times but it just stopped working. It's a shame because it's so cute. I wish they would make a better quality one like it. I'd pay more for it if it would last longer.

My only issue is comprehending the operating instructions for the specific activities (other than Express), to wit: how to melt butter at 10% power for 15 seconds. So far that has eluded me, but I will figure it out. This is all to say that the instructions are not intuitive. Otherwise, it is fine. It reminds of a 1964 cherry-red Corvette, and they were a bit persnickety as well.

The deep red color of the .9 cu ft microwave is stunning (not orange at all)! The retro style is charming. After a month of daily use, I am disappointed in 2 functionality aspects: 1) the appliance is underpowered, not even popping half of the popcorn (multiple attempts). 2) the dial feature is nice; however, it only moves in 10 second increments which can be frustrating for sensitive applications like softening butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Cooks much faster than my old microwave and looks terrific. I do wish the light came on when the door is opened but that's a minor thing in the long run. Would definitely purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am very happy with my purchase I was very surprised all the additional functions the microwave came with. I have been using other features I usually reserve for my oven. I have been saving on a lot of cooking time.
