I bought this microwave based on a thorough comparison of other countertop microwaves on the market and a review of Consumers Reports recommendations. Overall, I am happy with the purchase, but believe that microwave technology is still evolving. This microwave comes with many features, but realistically I only utilize a few of them consistently. I regularly use the defrost function, but was disappointed to find that sensor cooking seems to overheat the food. I have never used sensor cooking technology before, so it was not a big deal for me to go back to just guessing the time that my food should be in there - but I will say, I was hoping this function was going to work more efficiently! I love the amount of room inside of the microwave, my paper towel covering the food no longer hits the inside of the microwave. The draw back is that the outside is large - I just put mine in a deep corner on my countertop, but if someone does not have the counter space I could see this being an issue.
