Looks good- bad qualityTippi E.I bought one for me and one for my mother. I still have mine but it makes a very loud rattling noise. My mom's I have to take back this weekend because after only using it a few times it started throwing sparks in a brand new remodeled kitchen! I like the simple look and compact design but they seem to be very poor quality.1
Does not cook evenlyHyun S.I really love how cute and space-efficient it is. However, I agree with the below review in its ability to cook food evenly. Flatter plates and food are okay, but taller containers such as microwave ramen noodles are not so great. I really wanted to love this product since it’s the perfect size for people living alone :(. Sadly I am returning it.3
Perfect solution for a cramped countertopMaryWell priced. Does the job well. Doesn’t take a lot of space on the counter.5

Perfection in a small packageJASON S.The house my partner and I recently bought had a fully remodeled kitchen, including a high end microwave by a well known American manufacturer. A year into living in our new house the microwave was toast and just out of warranty (a common experience judging by reviews). Rather than shell out $$$ to replace it, I decided to search for something small and simple and landed on this microwave. I was already familiar with IKEA appliances from traveling throughout Iceland and Norway, and the price was right. We never used the extra programmed features on our previous microwave- all we need is a timer and power level. While small, this microwave fits all of our plates, bowls, and casserole dishes without issue. More importantly: our food no longer comes out scalded and boiling like it did in our previous microwave (no matter the power level). This microwave is perfect for our needs and I'm very happy with my purchase!5
Amazing value, simple to useMertAmazing value, simple to use and functions great. It’s also compact in size, fits easily in small kitchens.5
Great for the price, with one safety flawEricIt’s a no-nonsense microwave. Perfect for dorms or small apartments because it’s very compact. I’m surprised that the front is glass, which is very nice because it is less prone to ugly scratches over time than most cheap microwaves with a glossy plastic door.
The knobs are very simple. One to adjust power (since it’s a compact microwave and lower wattage, I keep it on max all the time) and one knob to adjust time.
The one safety flaw is that if you open the door before the timer goes off, the microwave will pause, but if you close the door, it will continue microwaving with nothing inside. Most microwaves require you to click the start button again if you interrupt the cooking cycle. The problem is that many times, I’ll pull out my food if I think it’s ready before the timer and then close the door. If you don’t remember to twist the timer knob to zero, the microwave will resume with no food inside. This is a safety problem because you are not supposed to microwave without food inside. The microwaves need to be absorbed by food otherwise they just bounce back into the magnetron and it will overheat the microwave.
If you get this microwave for you or someone else, be sure the user isn’t forgetful because the microwave will run on its own. Make sure you either wait for the timer to go off before removing food, or you must twist the knob to zero before opening and closing the door.4
Simplistic PerfectionEvanI love how simple and straight forward this is. No unused features, buttons and gimmicks. It's decently strong and has no issues cooking anything I've put in it.
This is a minimalists dream.5
