As others have noted, the controls on this microwave are not entirely easy to use. However, the main problem is its unreliability. Mine has failed twice within 3 years - once with a faulty part replaced under warranty, but on the second occasion (where the replacement part itself failed) AEG are expecting me to pay for a further replacement. Very unimpressive.
Absolute accuracy, every time
The clean glass display with touch buttons gives you even more control over your cooking. The timer is activated by entering start/stop through the LCD screen. Meaning you can expect absolute accuracy - even if you momentarily step away from your oven.
