Bought in place of a conventional microwave, thinking it could be a ‘microwave with oven benefits’ but not suitable for this job really. If you set the microwave timer to stop halfway through the full cooking time, for example to stir, you have to turn the oven off and on again to reset the microwave function. The alarm continues to beep once cooking completed until the oven door is opened, which can be annoying if you were happy to leave it resting whilst seeing to other aspects of a meal. It looks nice although is easily marked by fingerprints, and does microwave the food well, but it’s definitely an oven with microwave afterthoughts. Some design tweaks to improve the use of ‘microwave only’ functions are definitely needed
Nice idea, poorly executed
