Great value lasted 10 years!
Bought a previous model 20L Kmart microwave 10 years ago and it only just carked it today. Guess I was lucky.
We had an expensive brand name prior to this one which lasted only 2 years so decided to get the 20L Kmart microwave which I paid $50 for at the time. With 12 months warranty you can't go wrong.
Used it a lot but only for re-heating and defrosting.
Now going to buy the 25L version.
Purchased at Kmart Retail Stores for $50.00.
Great for the price!
I bought this microwave almost 4 years ago and it's still going strong. I use it just to heat up foods and though it takes longer than more expensive/bigger models, it does the job.
Purchased in March 2017 at Kmart for $48.00.
Works as expected at the price.
I am not a heavy microwave user . At the price, you can't ask for more.
Bought at kmart store 2 months back, works as expected.

Small, but perfect for one person
Thus microwave is perfect for me. I have very limited bench space and live alone. This microwave works perfectly and efficiently, it's just a little small. I'm unable to microwave big dishes or on my large plates as they don't fit. However medium one person size plates are perfect. I definitely recommend if you don't need the extra space.

Used for a month, working well so far and doing a great job. This replaced our previous one which was almost 15 years old before it died. In our experience, Kmart makes reliable microwave ovens.
Purchased for $48.00.
Perfect Quality !!!
Bought this microwave as it was suitable for my budget. Underlying idea was that I will survive on this a couple of months and then will go for a higher brand.
But really it has crossed all the limits in terms of quality and functionality. It still gives the same result as was 11 months ago.
Purchased in January 2019 at Kmart for $40.00.
Value for money!
Initially I hesitated at buying this due to ‘you get what you pay for’ but I needed it for the space. It fits a normal dinner plate and spaciously on a counter top or on a fridge. Definitely a great price for a good microwave!!

A great quicky cooker
So happy when I bought this product..always happy with the homemaker brand...cooks in a short time..love heating a meat pie or cooking a piece of fish..food is never mushy..comes out eldente
Purchased in January 2016 at Kmart newtown tasmania for $50.00.
Great size for one/two people. I chose smaller one as I only need a small microwave and it fits perfectly on my bench top and doesn't take up too much room. Easily and quickly set up. It does the job perfectly and as I have purchased this product before, I know it will last a LONG time. It is easy to understand and use (nothing complicated). There is a feature for "warming dinner plates" which is great and features for heating/cooking potatoes, frozen vegetables, popcorn, pizza, beverages etc., so this small but very useful microwave is gr...eat for quick snacks and meals on the go. I'm more than happy and would definitely recommend this Home Co product from Kmart, especially for 1 to 3 people. I am adding this after using the microwave a few times, there is one thing that is a concern and that is I have noticed that the top and sides get VERY hot after using and takes quite some time to cool down.

Reasonable price with good quality
This microwave oven is very cheap and cost-effective. Recently it changed a new look. It is very suitable for small families. I use it every day to heat milk, it never let me down. The disadvantage is that the defrosting function of this microwave oven is not very good, it will cook the frozen meat.
So micro happy!
I’m stoked as the microwave I have purchased from Kmart has helped me out when cooking for many a family event! I use it in the hot weather and the kitchen doesn’t heat up! I love the fast way that my food is ready and I cook so many great healthy options in a tantine with no fat just great healthy food.
An inexpensive little microwave with everything I want.
We have never been keen microwave oven users, having only owned one or two since they came onto the market many years ago and seeing every year during Council Clean-up week dozens of discarded microwaves, which makes me think they are not a reliable appliance and not worth investing a lot of money for one.
Six months ago my Aldi microwave died after 2 years, and as we were about to move house we only wanted something basic to see us through in the short term. We looked around but found every machine to be too expensive and far too big for us...and wouldn't fit in our kitchen. The small Kmart 20 L with just 700W power machine we figured at $48, would do the trick as a temporary measure, but, now 6 months later it sits neatly on the benchtop of our new kitchen and is just right for us, mainly warming things up. It is just big enough to take one of our dinner plates with a cover, and most things take about 2-3 minutes to zap. It is surprisingly quiet in operation, the screen is bright, the internal light works well and whilst there are programming buttons, we only ever push the start button for each 30 seconds of cooking. The door open button works effortlessly and the white interior is easy to wipe over, although we find using microwave covers saves any spitting.
Cheap and cheerful
I bought this microwave for my son so that he can warm up his lunch, It was never intended for cooking and it is very simple to operate. The buttons are easy to push and it is easy to clean, It heats up quickly and does the job well. I think it is relatively cheap and works well.
Lightweight, constant power
The oven is easy to use and clean. It replaced a 25 year old Whirlpool and has basically the same features except a higher wattage and a much lighter weight, and larger interior. As my husband said " Not as much metal needed in the new generation of ovens".
I wipe it clean with warm water, not allowing any splatter to set, and preventing splatter with appropriate covering of the food as best as possible.
