I admit I shopped by price after ours caught on fire...but this thing can do cooking at two different levels on timers you know when you are told to cook on high for 5 minutes then low for 10 minutes...just key them both in and press start...worth the purchase for sure.
I looked at several microwaves on line before looking at this one... Hamilton Beach makes good products, so I figured why not.. got it home and easy to program the clock. We used to heat up meatballs and wow.. 3 minutes later they are really hot.. my last mircowave was like 14 years old and it was taking to long to heat up any longer...
I like the feature of defrost by weight.. had nothing like this on my old mircowave.. cool
This is going to be fun to use, just by reading the instructions.
If anything else to report will let ya know. So far really pleased
Had no intention of buying this one after mine died.Had researched several others and I do not regret buying this one.
I purchased this microwave on July 20th from my local Walmart to replace my 10 year old microwave. I did not want to spend a lot of money and just wanted a basic model for heating coffee, popcorn, and hot dogs for the kids. We use our microwave several times a day, but as of September 20th, this microwave no longer works. It will run, but never gets hot as if the heating element has blown. The front plastic has also begun to crack over the "reset" button as well the "start/stop" button. I made the mistake of throwing away the box at 30 days, not expecting it to stop working at 60 days. So now I am stuck with a broken microwave that I am unable to return to Walmart. I am planning to contact Hamilton Beach in hopes that they will help. Bottom line, don't waste your money on this microwave!
This microwave is the perfect color and size for my counter. Unfortunately, it only works for approximately 3-4 months and then completely stops. This has happened twice now. The first time I thought it was just a fluke. This time I'll be looking for another brand. Some component must be faulty.
Stopped heating less than 1 week after purchase. Called Hamilton Beach customer support - they said to just return it to Walmart for another one. Going to get a different model. Do not buy this Hamilton Beach microwave!
This baby works beautifully, has all of the features I need and use. Couldn't ask for a better purchase in microwaves. All of the negative reviews I read did not keep me from buying this particular item. Look at other reviews for other microwaves, they all have some negative things to say besides positive reviews!! It either works, or you get a lemon no matter the brand!!
This microwave is a piece of JUNK!!!! Mine just stopped working after having it only a month. It comes on but does not heat. After doing some searching I have found several people with the same problem. DO NOT BUY THIS MICROWAVE!!!!!!
If your looking for a Microwave Oven that heats quickly, has lots of cooking space, and is very good looking? Look no further!!! I can tell you that this is the best microwave I have ever owned and would recomend it to anyone.
Great Job Hamilton Beach with another fine product! Your attention to detail is very impressive!!!
I bought this Microwave 2 months ago and they no longer work trips the power circuit in my home not safe and poor quality! Model #HB-P100N30AL-S3 DO NOT BUY! Not to mention if you want customer support you will need to wait on the phone for 2 hours to be told you got a bad microwave and that to bad! They get our money and leave us to hang! Spend a little more and get a nice one that's what i am going to do! Oh when we bought this Microwave we pick one up off the shelf and glass poured out of the box! so i put i back and went to get another and same thing broken front glass so i got the 3rd one and it was fine but tells you how this product is handled!
Had this for @ a month and works as expected. No complaints and love the door handle opening which lasts much better than the push button door opening mechanism.
We bought this microwave for our son for his dorm room. The first time he tried it, the turntable worked, the light worked inside, but it did NOT heat up at all !! We had to quickly go out & buy a different microwave, (not a Hamilton Beach brand I assure you). We quickly returned this one to Walmart, and while in line waiting to return it noticed another microwave, (same exact kind had already been returned). Needless to say we will not again buy any type of appliance by Hamilton Beach. I don't think it is the fault of Walmart, but that of the manufacturer, for producing a poorly constructed product. Save yourself an extra trip back to the store by passing this particular microwave up when shopping for one.
Failed after about 6 months of use! Features, looks and performance were fine until it died. Unless you only need a microwave for a few weeks, then you probably don't want this one.
I have limited counter space and thought this microwave would do the job. Wrong. Plugged it in and it tripped my circuit breaker. Took it right back to the Wal-Mart. Do yourself a favor and spend a little more money on a better brand, and save yourself a headache.
I received this for Christmas 2011. On January 20th 2012 it stopped working. It won't even light up. Hamilton Beach should be ashamed to put their name on this product. Clearly from all the negatives I read that 75% of these Microwaves are lemons. DON"T BUY IT!!
I love everything about this microwave, its size, power, and features are just perfect for our family.
I really would tell any of my friends or family to buy this microwave if they needed one!
Thanks Hamilton Beach.

Hamilton Beach 1000 watt microwave oven:
I purchased this oven I believe 2-3 weeks ago for about $58. Great price! But...from day one, I thought this oven ran awfully quite. Then one day I noticed it was making a loud vibrating sound. Turns out the cooling fan is defective runs sometimes not others and if used long enough, even with the fan running, to heat an item such as a caserole the outer skin becomes very hot and the oven shuts off because of the over temperature switch. After cooling 15 minutes the display comes back on and will once again operate. I have a lot of expirience in appliance repairs just so you know. I've seen the hundreds stacked in all your stores...good luck!
I bought this microwave in august 2011 and it suddenly stopped working after 4 months. the 3 months wallmart warranty was gone and the manufacturer warranty is very difficult to activate and will probably take months before it will be fixed or replaced.
the features were ok, not many automatique functions but it was fine, there is definitly better product on the market for the same price.
Microwave looks nice and is the perfect size BUT, after about 3 or 4 minutes shuts off and will not restart till it cools down. Works perfectly for things that only take a minute or two. Top of microwave gets really, really hot! Returned it after a week. Wish I had read the reviews prior to buying.
I never write reviews but I have to in this case, this microwave was great in the beginning, but just like others have mentioned it stops heating. It has lasted about 6 months, a major disappointment.
