The microwave was completely dead 4 days after we bought it. While it was working, it took a long time to heat anything (e.g. 5 minutes for a hot pocket). We had the .7 cubic feet microwave and a regular 3.5 oz. popcorn bag couldn't fit and wouldn't rotate in it. The alarm that goes off when the food is done is the loudest, longest (about 6 beeps), and most annoying I've heard on a microwave. Sort of glad it died so we can get a new and better one.
I got this microwave last month and at a nice price. It was a nice looking microwave. I had it for a month and now it doesn't heat food any more and it doesn't shut off. I have to either leave the door open or unplug it to shut it off. I called Rival and let them know what the problem was and they called the Walmart I purchased it from and they are going to exchange it(with no receipt and no box) So hopefully this one can upstand warming my food and can last longer than a month!
After a few weeks of owning this microwave, I find that it's just wonderful! It's 900 watts, so it's got great power. Food heats evenly and quickly. My 7 year old son and I find that it's easy to use; his favorite feature is the popcorn button. The 30 second button is very convenient. The button to open the door seems a bit flimsy, but time will tell on it's durability. It's light weight and the size is just right for a dinner plate or 2 cereal bowls. The price was wonderful and we couldn't be happier with it.
I have had this microwave for about six months and I am quite happy with it. It replaced a stainless steal Emerson that had problems with the platter rotating off when I was cooking, so I saw this unit and hoped it would work properly and it did. Six months later I have no complaints at all.
HEATS UNEVENLY, AND BUTTONS ARE ALREADY WORN AFTER 2WEEK USE
Our over the range microwave died last night so I wanted to get something fast just to use till we replaced it. Picked out one and went to get a shopping cart and on the way back saw a stack of this one for half the price I was going to spend. I figured why not give it a shot.. $55 and it was 900 watts .
Couldn't believe how well it worked when I got it home, and it's not bad looking either. I've read the other reviews that trashed this product but based on my experience I give it 5 stars.
Even my wife likes it and she usually hates anything cheap.
I had my last microwave for 14 years before it quit on me... I decided to pick this one up and Ive had it for 5 weeks and it stopped working. the touch pad and light work but it will not cook. I guess I have to go through the warranty process now. I'll update & let you know how that worked out :(
I'm hesitant to rave about this Rival 900W, after reading all the negative reviews. But this is exactly what I've wanted. Compact, nice quick heating, and to the right temperature. Heats a meal evenly right to the middle of the big dinner plate. Smart beverage heating too -- when I use the "larger mug " program I get perfect temperature coffee. Big bowl of soup heated for 3 min 30 secs, perfect too. Yes, I'm a heavy user, all this on the first day. Mostly to heat up things. The touch pad feels sturdy enough, sturdier than the other brands on the shelf. I would prefer the rotating glass tray sat more securely on its shaft. I just got this today... wish I had more days to report on. I look forward to discovering whether this good experience will last!
i had this microwave for about a month and i had no problems with it. i dont know if it is cause i dont use it everyday. i use it every other day or so. but im happy with it, and price is a fair deal, all microwaves this size are about same.
This microwave is total junk!!! I bought it about 4-5 wks ago and of course its the ONE receipt I can't find to return it!! Its making awful noise when I try to cook something and there was a cracking noise when I push the start button. NOW....its not heating at all. I also have a Rival 4 slice toaster which is also total junk. It cooks hotter on one side of the bread than the other and now 2 of the slots arent working at all. I only had this item for about 6 mo. or so. Buyer beware.....just saying!!!
I got this microwave for my college dorm room. It works excellent it is very power full for its size and cost which was a great price! Its Simple to use and its better at cooking food then my 1200 watt microwave in my family's kitchen at home and that is new also. Great Product would recommend it to a friend.
I have one and bought this one and had it shipped to my mother.
Purchased this for the office break room. Took it out of the box, never used, plugged it in...nothing happened. Tried another plug and resetting the outlets, still nothing. Tried 3 different plugs and the microwave never functioned. No power at all ever came to this microwave. So disappointing. Returned it and bought another brand with great reviews. Check the reviews before purchasing the product...I learned my lesson the hard way.
Needed a cheap small microwave so gave this one a shot. After I got it unpacked and plugged in, the microwave would not shut off. Once you closed the door the light, fan, and turntable all stayed on like the microwave was running. I placed a cup of water in there for a few minutes to see if it was actually heating it up, but it was not (even though it was giving all appearances of staying on). Pressing the buttons will not turn it off. Complete piece of junk. Save the hassle with this one.
Also, I did a few internet searches after I purchased this; I wasn't the only one with this problem.
Bought this about 2 months ago, worked great. Probably still does, I'm not going to be the one trying it out again. Since I've noticed all this peeling on the inside of the Microwave, exposing rusty and dark looking places on the edges some 1/4" -1/2" in length, I'm not comfortable eating anything cooked or heated up in this. I will never buy another Rival product again. We get what we pay for? On a limited income, should've got better than this!! Down below where it says I 'Never' use it, I dont anymore due to the nasty way it looks old and rusted out inside.
THIS IS MY SECOND ONE - ECONOMICAL - LIKE THE TURNTABLE. MY PREVIOUS ONE LASTED ABOUT 2 1/3 YRS WHICH BY INDUSTRY STANDARDS IS THE NORM FOR THESE.
I liked this microwave and was satisfied with its performance, until 14 days after I bought it the light went out. I will be returning this to Walmart for a refund, and will spend my family's hard earned money on something of higher quality. Unfortunately, though the price was right, the oven seems to be a dud.
After I read the other reviews, I should have taken this microwave back to the store and exchanged it but I didn't. Used it for a few months and now it dosen't heat up any more! Don't waste your money on this product like i did!
Ive had Rival microwaves in the past as well as other brands. Every brand but the Rival failed me before its time should have been up. This is the second Rival Ive had and they all work great. They don't have the flaws that others seem to have. Others break down before their time and cost a whole lot more! Its small size is good for the smaller kitchen I have as well. The price of Rival's are always reasonable and seem to be on sale all the time too. I will continue to use Rival for a lifetime. The remainder of it anyway!
Truly enjoy the child lock feature as I have two small children who enjoy pushing buttons. Cooks and defrost well and meets the need of a single working mom with two small children.
