I bought this microwave as an emergency purchase when ours went out. Normally, I research for several weeks before buying such items or larger. What a mistake I
made and regret it dearly. It frankly would make a better door stop than a microwave. It does not work properly half the time. One never knows if it work or not. Sometimes it is great and does the cooking well. Others times it won't even start and the next day it works fine. It you want a microwave oven that only works sometimes (or need a newer one but always have an old used one handy, since they seem to last for decades) this is the microwave for you. Perhaps they should attached an ad to it saying "Works Periodically. IF You Want Your Oven to Work ALL THE TIME, DO NOT BUY. It would make a good lampstand, shelf or doorstop. I think it would always work for those applications, although maybe it would be crushed by too many books or items if used as a shelf. Cheap looking, non operating consistently, and never know if it will work.
