Confirmed purchaser Busy mum or dad

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
We bought this microwave because it fitted the exact space we had for our old microwave ( which had a bigger capacity). It can grill as well as microwave. The surround for the wall unit was also supplied.
It looks good and was easily fitted into the wall unit ( apart from the wrong size of screws being supplied)
It does cook food quickly and within the designated time for a 750W oven.
Bad points:
Extremely small interior ( 17 litres) so only buy if you want to do vegetables/ready meals quickly.
It is expensive for such a small microwave / grill.
The instruction booklet did not give instructions on how to actually use the microwave and it took us a few shots of trial and error before we worked out how to set it to cook microwaveable meals for more than a minute at a time!
My husband had to use two longer screws to attach the microwave to the casing and secure it to our cabinet ( so tha it didn't fall out when you open the door) than the ones given in the installation packet.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent quality SS finish, looks great, we had a normal microwave just sat on the shelf before, when we fitted this one it filled the gaps around the edges, looked the part and really finished off the kitchen. Was unsure of the name Caple as I have never heard of them before but really pleased with it, had no problems so far. Wish we had got one sooner when we first did the kitchen. Was easy to install and use.
Bad points:
Too expensive, its not the largest capacity microwave available and all you are effectively paying extra for is a trim around the edge of the unit to fill the gap and give that "fitted' look. It is effectively twice the price of an equivelent microwave just like everything else that is 'fitted' such as fridges and washing machines. The main body of the microwave is obviously hidden so therefore doesn't need an asthetically pleasing painted metal box round it, so it isn't fair really that we are charged extra for technically less product!
