My unit arrived promptly, and packaged appropriately, to destination of gift recipient. It's an OK looking appliance. It does slide a little when opening door, but that wasn't a concern for the recipient. It's weight helped to keep it from sliding too far. The first use was successful--> heated up a lunch dish well, no more than 2-3 min. But there was always a 'burnt rubber/ metal smell.' We though maybe it was a new appliance smell. Made sure all plastic & styrofoam packaging wasn't lurking.
It smelled like it was coming from back of unit, by the cord origin. Outlet was fine. Ran it again later & smell persisted & was stronger (this time, heated an item for 4-5 min). Then noted the top was abnormally hot to the touch. Microwave was on countertop cleared from other items. Placed another item, just to make sure we weren't 'crazy' & the smell + heated top were too concerning. Unplugged, then plugged back up--> unit wouldn't even light up. No longer operated. BURNED OUT! The outlet is unharmed & still works. Cord itself never got hot either. I do not recommend this brand.
