Bought 3 days ago and no problems so far.
Heating capacity stronger than user manual, so that was nice to discover and once realised meant that the cooking time for each product was less than recommended in the user manual.
The only recommendation at this stage of my purchase, is that the keypad is sooooo small, that I need a magnifying glass to be able to use. Not an issue if you have one to hand, or your vision is of superperson calibre.
Purchased in September 2020 at Kmart for $48.00.
Its okay for cooking small items but defrosting takes ages and take a while to heat a meal all the way through. Good cheapie but better to invest a bit more money in a better quality microwave.

700W not alot
This microwave is only 700W and most microwave cooking times are based on a 1000W microwave. If you don’t mind putting your food in for a little longer than you’re used, or more than what it says on the packaging, then especially for this price, this microwave will definitely do the trick (eventually)
Purchased in July 2019 at Kmart for $49.00.
while the food cooks and the microwave does it job at the end of the day you get what you pay for. the plastic exterior makes it look cheap and it scratches easily. overall if you don't mind the look and just want something that works go ahead and buy it.

It only does its job for the price paid for it!
Food heats up preserving its texture but it takes so long!! touch panel really needs a strong press to get working. and it starts beeping once the food is ready and it beeps (I think) every minute until the food is taken out which is annoying.

Great for the price
Features are very basic but that is all i need. It heats food evenly. It is easy to clean and the dish can be washed in the dishwasher. Very basic design but good for the price I paid. Had it for just under a year and it still works great
good size and good value
Heats very well and quickly, it has a cooling down function where after you heat an item it cools the microwave which is a little strange and annoying as it’s loud. But other than that it’s a good microwave and value for money. It’s also a good size and presents well
It’s okay but you get what you pay for
Small, cheap microwave. It does the job but isn’t very powerful and I find that things need to be left in there for longer than they would in another microwave, which to be fair is to be expected when you’re picking up a microwave for such a fair price!
We bought this microwave because our kitchen is tiny and it’s the only one that fit on our bench. It’s perfect for a small apartment!
Good for a couple
This is a pretty small microwave. It looked about 75% of all the other ones in KMart but it is reasonably powerful (for its size) and is great for lunches or reheating food for two. For example I cook a small frozen apple pie takes exactly 1 minute to cook to warm from frozen (then I put it in the oven). A cup of coffee is a little less around 50 seconds.It works well!
Was very happy with size, cost and functionality of this little unit - until tonight when it nearly caught fire. Please be careful! I first noticed smoke when cooking pappadams a few weeks ago and tonight I was heating up a wheat pack (perhaps it was a contributing factor) but...
It is good
I am very satisfied with this product. We use it everyday for heating food and drinks, cooking simple dishes. I even make hot chocolate myself with the microwave. It is not that loud when working, my kid is not waken up by the noise when he is sleeping. It also has good looking, white color, simple and tidy.
Gets the job done.. eventually
This is a very basic microwave, not suitable for a family if you have multiple meals to heat at dinner time. For a single person it’s all you need to get the job done - quiet and easy to read. Quite a nice looking for a cheap option of microwave.
Does the job
The settings are pretty straight forward, cooks meals well. Warms up and fully cooks frozen meals to my satisfaction, it’s kind of loud but it doesn’t bother me. And it was reasonable on the price so it’s good if you’re moving out of home for the first time. I would recommend to my friends.
Great for what we need, not everyday use , not to big , does it’s job, very simple to use, quality product for the low price we paid , I highly recommend this product if you are not going to use everyday, comes in black or white , doesn’t clutter kitchen
cheap and wonderful
The microwave is simple and cheap and does what it is supposed to. Although my friends whom had bought the microwave had told me that theirs broke down after a few months which was expected out of such a cheap microwave, I mean it is a K-Mart Microwave, didn't have expectations for it
