This microwave is capable of easily accommodating tall, deep dishes because of its huge cavity and turntable. Hence, it does require more counter space than the average oven, but it's worth it. It also has the inverter which gives you true intermediate cooking power levels, rather than the typical cycling on/off of most others. It also has sensing capability for cooking or thawing based on weight of food, if you're into that. Other than these useful features, it doesn't have a bunch of silly presets, except for popcorn. I've seldom found these presets to be accurate and rarely used them on other microwaves I've had. The minute plus button is handy, and one I've used on other microwaves and missed on those machines that didn't have it. At 1250 watts, this oven is fast and even, so I've had to scale back cooking times by more 30 to 40 percent over the 900 watt machine it replaces. Some have complained about the loud sound that the door makes when it is closed, but this seems nit-picky to me - it's just a good, solid sound. Others have complained that it's difficult to see through the window, and it may be a little moreso than other machines, but I've found that visibility varies with the angle from which you are looking through it. Pros: Huge capacity, fast, inverter feature, no silly, useless presets that clutter up the controls. Cons: None really, other than it takes a little more counter space than average, but necessarily so in order for it to accommodate large cookware and meals. I got it for my elderly folks because of its simplicity; will get the same for my home when my current one craters.
