Won’t turn off.
Purchased this microwave in late February 2021. By early April 2021 it just won’t turn off, the only way to turn it off is to unplug it from the wall. As soon as the unit is plugged back into the socket it starts without even pressing a button. I tried pressing stop, setting a cooking time and pressing start but it just keeps turning. I rang the only number I could find for “customer service” and Kmart won’t help. The lady was rude and told me I had to take the unit back into the store to be looked at. When I told her I wasn’t able to do that s...he said that’s the only way it will be looked at. That’s fine, all I wanted was to speak to someone other than a 15 year old who might actually know something about why it won’t turn off. Do not buy this unit! It is cheap rubbish that doesn’t even last 6 weeks

Value for Money !
Good size & gives an elegant look to a small kitchen due to the silver colour & price is cheap for a new microwave bought it on late December and it's working well with out any issue.
There are few negatives as well one being bit noisy, other being if totally switched off it takes bit of time to start again and I feel door shutting sound is bit higher as well and needs of bit pushing harder.
I feel it's good value for a new microwave if you are okay with the bit of noise.

Great, Works as directed.
Value for money, works great! heats well and food tastes good considering its been microwaved. Has lots of pre-set programs that make it quick, easy and convienant to use. food heats evenly for moderate sized amounts but for larger things (over 10 mins to cook) just give it a stir.
Have had this mocrowave for about 1 year and 1/2 and havent had any issues as of yet.

Cheap and worth it!
We are planning to buy a branded one actually but settled for this one since we need a microwave right away. No regrets as it operates as we need it! And it's cheap!

Out with a bang
Puchased on the 5/8/19, worked fine, actually cooked hotter than my old expensive one. 15/8/19, loud bang like a gun going off, and sparks blew out the back. Kmart gave refund with out hassles.
Purchased in August 2019 for $85.00.
works well and great price
looks more expensive than it was and at a larger size it holds everything I need it to. I have purchased cheap microwaves before and got what I paid for, but this one works really well. Happy with the purchase particularly with the stainless steel front which matches the kitchen.
Top Microwave - who needs more
We have been using this for the last six months and its great. I was a little unsure of buying a non brand name one but I have no concerns at all now - it works just great and no different from a full sized one (its a little smaller) I cooks evenly and defrosts perfectly. No worries at all
Schmick looking Kmart Microwave
This is Kmart's top shelf fancy looking microwave. It is finished in silver and looks great with our other silver appliances. It's only 25 litres so not the biggest ever but it cooks really well. The menu is basic but makes sense I just started using it without reading the manual, no need. I am happy with it.
Easy to use, one button per minute or one button per 30 seconds. Big, quiet, no problems. This is a good microwave, cheap, efficient. Very satisfied with this microwave considering the cost & ease of use. Would recommend this to anyone on a budget. Just perfect! Please consider this! Perfect!
Really Good Microwave
This was a pleasant surprise! I knew that these Kmart microwaves are good because a friend has one but I did not realise they came in stainless. It actually looks pretty darn good in my kitchen and works very well. I mostly use it to dethaw things and reheat, rarely to cook and it does a great job. I know it now so I have a good idea about the time versus weights. So long as this keeps working for a few more years, I will be very happy with it.

Great for the price
An affordable microwave and it does everything I need very easily. I was happy to find a stainless steel look at this price to match my other kitchen appliances. A bit of a chunky look rather than sleek but also feels quite well made and has cooked everything I've used it for very well. Very happy with it overall.
Bought this as a temporary fill in when my old samsung died. Haven't replaced it yet cause it's just so easy and reliable. Mind you I really only use microwaves to defrost or heat as a rule but I do a lot of that so it serves it's purpose. It's not flash looking but for the price, good value.

Lasted less than three years
I purchased this microwave in April 2015 from Kmart and it has worked reasonably well up until today when it decided I don't want to heat up anymore. At a cost of $89, I suppose I got what I paid for but I have now had in the past two months two Homemaker appliances break down completely well before I expected. It is sad that we live in a throw away society but this is what I have to do with this heap of junk - throw it away and buy a new one.
such a good quality product at affordable price
You will not be disappointed with the quality of this product. It has lasted atleast 5 years now and still good as new, the functions are plenty and work perfectly. Quality is great. Even conventional options are great. Can grill bake etc etc. Good product from kmart at a very affordable price when compared to other products from name brands with the same functions
It's OK but it is what it is
I purchased this recently and the alternative version was white. Thought silver would be a nice touch.
The silver cladding looks cheap and nasty... Overall it's okay except for one problem.
When you want to heat up something... You need to press the power setting but which shows P10 then press it again to show P8.
Then after that setting the time of how long you wish to heat your consumable item.... It creates a delay of 5 seconds.... Why why why does it do this???
Why can't you just press the start button to heat something up for 30 seconds or press the start button and the desired time afterwards?
Great microwave for the price
Cooks well. Looks good with silver and black design features. Its easy to clean with removable inner glass plate. Buttons good size, very clear and easy to use and press. Not very loud just you're standard microwave noise.
Can fit different size containers and different size plates also. Heats food very well.
Fantastic for the price
For the price of this I don't think you can beat it. I paid $79 as I didn't want to pay too much for a microwave.
It's very easy to use and has all the features you need. The defrost and % power cooking work very well. Precious microwaves I usually end up half cooking things on defrost. This one doesn't.
All in all a great basic microwave.
Great affordable microwave
Very pleased with this affordable yet quality microwave. Cooks food efficiently. Very simple to navigate settings and change the time etc. the microwave is actually really quiet besides the beep at the end that lets you know it's done.
It is very sturdy and well built. Can't fault it in anyway. Love the stained steel look, looks very fancy without the fancy price tag.
The best microwave I've ever had
Still trying to work it all out. It is quite when on. Most definitely sturdy n well built . Easy to clean n keep clean . Heats food up very quickly. It it very economical to use. Price wise it was a good buy . I'm so happy to use my microwave
Questions & Answers
How do you set the clock
Why did this microwave replace the Homemaker convection microwave which is brilliant - am looking for another one as mine works well and has done for years. Looked up this model Homemaker convection microwave EW925eAB and it said this Kmart Anko has replaced it - how come? not even convection.
I press power level and get nothing
