Karen, West Dunbartonshire

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
It's a good microwave, fairly easy to use. This is my first multi purpose microwave so selecting miocrowave first was a bit starnge. Heats better than my last one and evenly. I bought it because it was the cheapest larger capacity microwave with a digital timer (I can't stand the analoge dials).
Bad points:
Haven't had to try out the ordinary oven or grill yet so can't give my view yet

Good points:
Simple to use - small numer of clearly defined buttons and jog dial, compact and does the job it was designed to do very well.
Bad points:
Some people might not like the smaller internal dimensions (although it's still big inside compared to some micros on the market) if they're replacing an older, larger microwave.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great 'value for money', extremely versatile.
Bad points:
Non intuitive to use and user guide is not particularly helpful. Still cannot work out how to use 25% of the features properly even though I have spent 35 years in the computer industry. It is a case of 'trial by error' for more advanced features.

John, Cardiff

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money. Functions well as a basic microwave and convection/combi oven.
Bad points:
A single rack is provided which doubles as a low rack and high rack for grilling. The legs stick both up and down which means you can't put anything on the rack which is wider than the rack itself (the rack itself is not very wide).

You have to press the Convection button several times to select the highest temperature (200 degrees C). It would be better if it was the other way around and the first button press selected the highest temperature as that is what you would most likely want to use.

The microwave quick start feature (just press Start button to start microwave) doesn't work. To start the microwave you have to press the microwave button, then select a time, then press start.
