An extremely badly made product. Stay away at all costs

A terrible product. Only lasted me just over 4 years before it decided to give up the ghost. After only a couple of months it had rusted out in one corner on the bottom left side of the door with rusted bits breaking off. You could pick the rust off and it formed a hole where the rust had eaten through. It kept turning off constantly. Very badly made and not worth the money. Stay well clear of this rubbish product. Not even worth one star. Show details

Good value

Our old cheap microwave stopped working. I was never a fan of it so good to try another. This Anko Kmart one is quite an improvement, though in same price range. Stylish. Door opens and closes more quietly, smoothly. The other one was really clunky, noisy. Going well so far, defrosting well and slightly quieter and bigger. Show details ·  1

Glass Turntable Exploded

Had it for about 6 months. Kept the vents clear and did everything right. It did a decent job (hence more than one star despite what I’m about to say). We were popping popcorn, took it out and as we were closing the door after retrieving it heard a loud “crack/bang”

The plate had cracked into about 6 large pieces and lots of little shards.

When I took it back customer service seemed nonchalant and indicated it wasn’t the first time.

When I questioned him on that he stuttered and tried to cover up his knowledge of that.

Be weary of this product. Show details

Internal microwave light stopped working. 6 months old

The product is noisy. The internal light stopped working after 6 months so one cannot view how the food is cooking. I wonder if I may return the item for a refund or store credit. I do not have the receipt but with the serial number on the product, Kmart can easily verify date of purchase. I hope Kmart Eastgardens can accept a return as it is within the 12 months warranty. Please confirm. I know going to the store without authorisation and the receipt will be problematic. Show details

Not the best

Firstly, this microwave is black on the door so you can't see what's happening inside. You have to stop it and open it to see. It has also started overheating even though the vents are all clear and free from obstruction. Annoying when you are in the middle of cooking because you have to wait for it to get power again. Cooks food unevenly as well. Show details

How to start Kmart 20 litre microwave

I have just purchased the KMart 20 litre microwave oven. What do I press to start it for say a minute? It is quite different from my previous easy to use Sharp microwave. Show details

Better than Expected

I was in two minds about getting this inexpensive Microwave. I had had my Sharp Carousel for 17 years.
I decided to take a chance, after reading negative reviews on microwaves 3 times the price.
I brought it home, unpacked it. So simple to set up. Easy to use. Defrosted my mince by weight and it did it tp perfection, no areas of over defrosting, still pink all over.
Cooking a big bowl of vegetables by guesswork on how long I underestimated so pushed the 30dec# twice more. That worked well.
Baked jacket potatoes turned out well cooked and even.
Leaving a little condensation which was wiped out.
So yes it cooks evenly and preserves the colour of the food.
Best $52 I've spent in a long time.
More than adequate size for 2-3 people. Show details ·  1

Not sure

Hi, I recently bought a ANKO microwave oven model #P11034AL-B6
I have noticed the plate doesn't rotate, Is it meant to do that?. I have taken the plate out and put it back in, still doesn't.

It looks good and is easy to clean… but

$48 Kmart purchase that stopped heating properly. Defrost doesn’t seem to do anything at all. Functional and user friendly.
The inside light works really well. Show details

Doesn’t work

I just purchased it, The microwave doesn’t work, the light is permanently on inside. I have no idea what’s wrong. It’s also unbalanced, my bench top is level, and can’t adjust it. Has anyone else experienced this? Show details

Lasted 18 months only

I understand I paid cheap, and hence would be basic, take a lot longer to warm up, etc.
But it made me upset that it broke after 21 months. I saw other similar post about it(lasted 18 months). Seems to me it was just made to least a little longer than the warranty.
Environment wise, I am not buying it again. Show details

Here’s what reviewers thought:

Reviewers who shared positive reports about this microwave reported that it worked well enough for its purpose, while being good value for money. They also found it easy to use and clean. A number of these reviewers said that they don’t use their microwave especially frequently. It also appeared to be the right choice for a household of 1-2 people - but any more than this, and the microwave became a bit crowded.

The buttons can stop working after some time, which is commonly reported as being at the one-year mark. Some reviewers also noticed that the microwave took a long time to heat up food, which can be frustrating and inconvenient. These reviewers stated they regretted not spending a bit more on a higher quality microwave.
