Joanna, London

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
The microwave is easy to use and keep clean.
Bad points:
The functions such as cooking vegetables is poor. I'm a huge jacket potato fan and have always cooked them in the microwave prior to putting them in the oven to become crisp. However, there is only 1 option for cooking veg and the maximum time spent cooking it is about 6 minutes - which with other microwaves has been fine. But this one doesn't cook the potato at all - even with the recommended weight. I've had to put the potato in the microwave for a total of 18 minutes for it to be even slightly soft!!! I've not used the grill so can't comment on that. I was also very disapointed with the size capacity of the oven. But for the price i can't complain. It heats up my meals and that's all i use it for.

Richard, Chapeltown Occasional user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very clean lines -

Has a bunch of clever automatic cooking settings, based on the weight or size or the food or liquid you are cooking.

Easy to clean

Cooks food quickly and evenly

Is very quiet in use, but has a nice audible alarm when cooking is finished.

Plenty of features for the price.

Superb value for money.
Bad points:
Some of the settings are inside the door, you cannot adjust these once the door is closed.

Door feels a little light, although had one of these before and it never broke.
