Pros:Awesome "Sensor Reheat" and "Turbo Defrost" features that work well

Cons:Longevity; seems "fuse blowing issue" is pretty common, though mine lasted for four years

The Bottom Line: Never regretted this purchase...until it broke. I'd shy away from inverter technology if you can find similar features on standard full-on/full-off microwaves.


I loved the "Sensor Reheat" feature for those times when you didn't feel like being wrong about how long to cook your food. Who needs that little extra stress in their day? Just shove the plate of food in there and hit "Sensor Reheat" -- let the oven figure out when to stop. It uses special moisture sensors to detect when the water in the food begins to steam, then counts down about 20 seconds and…voila! I never had anything burn this way, though sometimes I had to let the food cool a little. The other major plus was the "Inverter Turbo Defrost" that would thaw my frozen steaks in minutes without cooking the edges of the meat -- no small feat! I just had to stay nearby so I could flip the meat when the oven beeped and the display read TURN OVER about halfway through.
Now the internal fuse blows as soon as I hit the "Start" button. The original fuse was a hard-to-find 18A ceramic one, so I tried replacing it with a 15A fuse at first, then a 20A fuse, but both would blow immediately. It's a little weird because the outlet it's plugged into is only rated at 15 amps (so how can 20+ amps get to the internal fuse???). Now I am at that infamous crossroad of our 21st century technology where I must make the difficult decision of whether to get this one fixed or buy a new one. Hmmm...
