Hotspots and flaking paint
My partner bought this microwave a couple of years ago from our local Kmart. It had hotspot issues where some parts of the food were overcooked and others were undercooked. Given that it was quite cheap and other reviews had pointed this out we decided to live with it.
Today, when doing the weekly clean with mild soapy water, on wiping the inside base, chips of paint started coming away. On wiping the door frame, a large chunk of paint came away. I'm guessing that the metal had not been prepared properly at the factory before painting. I've att...

Not sure if anyone else had a similar issue, could have been that mine was just faulty. I found that is was cheap and convenient for a share house but the quality of the microwave was low. The product took double the time to heat something up compared to something you would pay a little extra for (quality is better than cheapness honestly). A large plate only just fit... definitely would not recommend nor would I buy this again.

Quite solid microwave
It was quite good from first 2 weeks that i purchased. I usually use it to heat up the milk and spin about 30 seconds was enough. After that, the microwave's power getting weak. I need to spin 1 minute to heat up the milk. I am not sure what is going on

This is an absolute waste of money will never buy a cheaper microwave again an example is I put frozen chicken in for 10 minutes and it barely defrosted at all and I was very disappointed but it is great for smaller non frozen foods to heT up ect thanks
a good cheap microwave
Microwave is small but ok for one person only lasted two and a half years I've barely been used Jenna turns off the power PT didn't use too much electricity all in all just a very basic white microwave with no frills for someone just moving over home is say goodbye but otherwise I'd be getting something better
Does the job, just
This has to be the worst microwave I have ever purchased. It does not heat food quickly, taking sometimes up to twice the time indicated on packaging. I am aware it is not the most powerful microwave, but I expect to be able to heat a cup of water within 5 minutes on full power.
The controls are counter-intuitive, having to press the power button before being able to enter a time. The power increments are hard to understand and hard to navigate.
I would not buy this product again and wish I had invested what I spent on this microwave into another brand.
Worked okay; broke before 12 months.
This microwave worked okay when we had it. It is much smaller than you would expect, and only fits one standard size dinner plate in it, wall to wall. Unfortunately, about six months in it just stopped working one day. I would always find that when something was defrosted in the microwave, the steam would somehow get caught in the inside top of it and so within twenty minutes of defrosting food, water would be dripping out the top of the microwave on the plate. It was always wet inside no matter how many times a day I dried it.
It heats food evenly and fast. It has a good array of options for settings, and would do really well for a single person household, an office, or spare microwave in the shed. Probably not big enough for a family.

Found this microwave worked well for a while then began to cook from the outside in so tend to have cold food in the middle
Poor ventilation a lot of moisture build up with every use
Loud to open and close door
Would not recommend poor value but expected with price I suppose
Will definitely fork out the money for a decent microwave in future
