It is an adorable machine, and it works perfectly well for a 900W microwave. 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.

Love this! It's a little bigger than I expected, but it fits in the space I needed it to work in. 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.

Pretty to look at but 6 months old and it's quit heating. 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.

    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.

    This microwave is so cool looking, the color is a candy-apple red which adds to the retro look and it is simple to use, works great and is perfect for our new office kitchen.

    The retro look of the microwave is an A plus. The oven itself is pretty unsatisfactory. It is not at all simple to use. It takes many many minutes to heat anything. It’s not real sturdy and makes sounds when in use. It beeps way too much for way too long. It is cheaply made.

    I had this one for three years and it finally went poof. It was great and I used it every day so figured I got my money’s worth. This is not only a great micro but a show stopper everyone thinks it is way cool. My son bought me a retro that was smaller but it was awful. Get this one .

    This looks great on my counter! I also ordered the retro coffeepot and toaster oven. I'm glad I did. With all three on my counter, it looks super cute! My items were delivered sooner than expected and all were in perfect shape. I will order from this company again.

    I love this microwave. It looks beautiful on my counter. It's strong enough and perfect for my needs and it matches my style. I would give it another star but I don't want people to think it's the full package. I want to be honest in saying if you need a high powered microwave read up on it.

    The oven is beautiful and far more interesting than the typical black, silver, or white available where we live. The only downside is waiting for delivery, and the first one was broken on arrival. It was an easy return to my local Home Depot Store, and they were very helpful, but it is not an item in stock so we had to wait again for delivery. Aside from that, it is wonderful!
