Rated 4 out of 5 by thegothmother A bit on the small side.
I bought this microwave as it had a slightly larger cavity than some others on the market. However, it isn't tall enough for packs of 'instant' rice which need to be cooked upright. The controls look complicated but are easy to use once you get used to them. There are several features which I am unlikely to use as I tend to reheat food rather than actually cook from fresh. I haven't used the grill yet. The main 'negative' apart from the inner height is that it is very lightweight and slides around on the worktop. I may resort to holding it down with blutac. Overall, a nice microwave for the price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ionracas NOT QUITE AS EXPECTED
I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE IT WAS AN ONLINE BEST BUY, AND FROM PREVIOUS REVIEWS. THIS WAS MY SECOND CHOICE AS THE OTHER ONE I ORDERED THE COURIER LET ME DOWN. ITS WORTH ITS MONEY, AND LOOKS GOOD, HAS A LOUD RING WHICH IS REALLY GOOD.
MY HONEST OPINION IF YOU JUST WANT A MICROWAVE TO REHEAT THEN BUY THIS ONE, IT CLAIMS TO BE 20L BUT YOU CANNOT GET A STANDARD DINNER PLATE INSIDE THE OVEN ( MY OLD ONE WAS 20L AND I DIDNT HAVE THIS PROBLEM) I THINK ITS MORE LIKE 17L. IVE TRIED THE AUTO COOK ALREADY AND IM NOT THAT IMPRESSED I TRIED BAKING POTATOES WITH AUTO COOK, THEY CAME OUT BURNT AND REALLY HARD IN THE CENTRES AND HAD TO GO IN THE BIN, IVE ALSO TRIED TO COOK FROZEN PEAS IN THEIR FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTION BOOK ON AUTO COOK AND THEY CAME OUT HALF COLD AND HALF STILL FROZEN. I WILL PROBABLY GET A NEW ONE NEXT YEAR.

This microwave is great value for money. Good quality finish, easy to use. It is fairly compact but will still take a standard size dinner plate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tallyorkist Good, basic microwave
This is a good, basic microwave which ticks all the boxes for us - family of 4. Easy to use timer, the quick start (30 seconds) works fine, and it looks smarter than the other budget microwaves we looked at.
Can't comment on reliability as we've only had it a couple of weeks, but it wrorked fine straight out of the box with no issues.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Skud nice oven but not for us
Bought this as spec was good and price great. Nice looking oven but only 1 of our 3 sizes of dinner plate would fit in. This limited our usage.
For your info the inernal width is 27cm
Also grill comes on for 2 mins max then goes off due to thermal cut-out. Stays off for almost 3 mins, comes back on for 1 min then goes off again. May be ok for steak grilling but not very good when you need to do your cheese on toast !
So, had to take it back to local Asda for a refund. Bought Kenwood K25MMS12 instead.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sarnian exactly like I wanted it to look
It was the only store that I was able to find exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately there was no instruction manual with the item so ten days later I am still unable to use it. This however is due to the manufacturers and not ASDA although I telephoned on taking receipt of the item and have telephoned again today when the cutomer service lady telephoned the manufactures whilst I was on the phone which I felt was very efficient so I hope to receive same in a few days.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GHGB Good value for money
We have not used this much, but it does all it's supposed to.
In operation, the interior is well lit so you can see what's happening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Moggz101 Good microwave at a decent price
Very happy with the product. I haven't used the grill yet, but the microwave works well. Easy to use, and the quick start button is useful. I also like the fact that you don't have to set the clock to work the microwave like some brands. So for energy conscious people like me, it means I can turn it off at the plug when not in use. The door is also easy to see through, despite how dark the front screen is.
My only slight concern is how easy it will be to clean the top of the microwave where the grill element is found
