I bought this for my 90yr old Mother-in-law so ease of use was essential. Very simple no fuss microwave. Capacity ideal for one or maybe two people.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
It does the job as described, but just with a few flaws.

Bad points:
The reason for my low rating is because of :

1) Spillages roll backwards and disappear into a join between two panels at the back of the microwave. This means I have to try and poke a cloth down the join with my finger nail to try and soak up the last of the spillage. It just seems ackward, and clearly sauce and soups in joins that can't be cleaned out, becomes a hygene issue as it starts to decompose and smell.

2) The microwave rattles as the it turns, though this may be just my unit.
3) I paid extra for a brand name because I hoped it to be better designed. It isn't.
