It fits perfectly in the corner that was too deep to be functional for anything else. There is no number pad you simply press the start button to add increments of 30 seconds. And it can make microwave popcorn without scorching and without leaving behind an inordinate amount of unpopped kernels. If waiting one extra minute to reheat your coffee would cause you agony, this oven isn’t for you.
We only use a microwave for reheating leftovers, melting butter, reheating drinks etc.As you can see in the picture this microwave fits perfectly in a space that formely housed a knife block and vase full of cooking utensils.
I didn’t want one of those mondo-brick black microwaves hogging up the space and making it look messy. I swear they make things to break right after the warranty is up.
You can also press it to add 30 seconds to a manual setting that is already in progress. Plus, the controllock feature helps you avoid unintended use or other changes to your cooking settings by disabling the control panel with the touch of a button. There are no bells or whistles but it is perfect for my needs.
Dollar Tree Diy Hot Pads (Protect Your Countertop) | Duration 53 Seconds
It is big enough to fit a full-size dinner plate easily and tall enough to fit a coffee mug. Since it’s only 750 watts, it takes nearly twice as long as the recipes suggest. If you cook five course meals in your microwave, this oven isn’t for you.
You just push one button for every 30 second increment, and since we’re not roasting chickens in there that works great for us. I now have the space to prepare meals and a fully functional microwave!
I got this the latch to close the microwave was acting a bit finicky.

They look great, protect my glass top when not in use and provide additional counter space. The counter mat itself would probably be fine, former ones gotten elsewhere have been fine.
We also used it while carving the turkey straight out of a hot oven and to place other hot oven dishes on it. This is a perfect fit for our toaster oven leaving little showing around the edges.
Works great as a mat below my toaster oven, covering the split in the stove top, and my crock pot, keeps themwell balanced while in use. The price of the mat is a lot cheaper than having to replace a two thousand dollar counter top. They protect my counter from the heat of these type of appliances.
