John, Berkhamsted Family cook

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use as a conventional microwave. Well equipped and finished, looks good and has plenty of programmes.
Bad points:
The microwave gets very hot when used as a conventional oven. This isn't too much of a problem if there is plenty of open space round it, although other people need to be aware that it does get very hot. When built in (as ours is) it is more of a problem as the side away from the controls does seem to need better insulation.

Confirmed purchaser Family cook

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I like the size of the interior, that allows me to cook several items at once, so saving time and energy. The microwave is efficient and the grill works well
Bad points:
I bought this model as a replacement for my Sharp Caroussel, which died after 20+ years of very good service. As compared with the Caroussel, this new one feels flimsy and I have the feeling it's not going to be as long-lived.
About the features: it has too many programs, which are totally useless to me, as they include things I never cook. I'd rather have just a timer, a selector of power and a selector for micro/grill/oven. Full stop. All these extra options just increase the price, so it's no such a good value for money.
One more bad point: the spindle where the rotating plate sits also feels too delicate, and I fear to remove the plate too often to clean it
