This microwave is smarter than I am.

Advantages: Great non stick interior, heats quickly and efficiently.
Disadvantages: A degree in electronics and quite a lot of patience required to operate as intended.

Microwaves have always been a no brainer approach to cooking. Open the door, pop something in, push a button and wait a minute. It sounds simple - and so it should be. This microwave however tries to do a bit too much. It has a specialist programme for ...

Good looker, with a useful feature set at an economic price.

Advantages: Economic, has all the features (bar timer) you'd need, cosmetically OK, small
Disadvantages: No Kitchen Timer, dim display, flimsy not Kenwood quality, ergonomics could be better

With dozens of models on the market it ought to be easy to find one which pretty much exactly matches your requirements but after several hours of research this was the only one I could find which had the key features I wanted bar a kitchen timer. I want ...

Kenwood CJ/AL28 easy to use but liable to self destruct

Advantages: Cheapish, good looking, easy to use
Disadvantages: Liable to blow up, just outside its warranty of course.

Right up to the point that it commeted suicide this had been a lovely little machine to own. Easy to use, easy to clean and pretty enough to look at. 14 months in and it fused the entire house whilst in use. I put a new fuse in and it worked for one more ...
