For the price this is an awesome microwave. It is high powered and gets things cooked quick. I would buy it again if i needed another one.
Like this microwave , solid and sturdy. Works well has a lot of features. It is a very large unit had to rearrange kitchen to find a good spot for placement.
I love this microwavepros: very powerful, tons of settings, easy to operate, looks great, & large. Cons: absalutly noneupdate 8 years in and just as powerful as the day i got it, although the light just burned out.

Comments from buyers
“Excellent product with equally good prospects
, Very happy with the microwave
Purchased july of 2013, died march of 2016pros:- pretty cheap- worked well enoughcons:- died too quickly- really annoying beeps that don’t stop when you open door. Would not buy again, but it was fine for what it was.
I purchased the oster microwave after my ge numbers pad quit working after one year. I have had the oster for one month and so far have nothing but praise for this unit. I would recommend this to friends.
Found the perfect microwave.
So far it is working and seems to cook evenly. It got top ratings and i took a chance since i never had this brand in a microwave. The light in the microwave is low but in a normal kitchen it is not a problem, i just use it sometimes in the dark.
Use it on my counter top in the kitchen.
We bought a top-of-the-line panasonic a little over a year ago to replace the same model that had given us many years of faithful service. The new one was different in one important regard: they’d replaced the steel door latches with plastic. They lasted just beyond the warrantee, a fate several other web reviewers are now reporting as well. When i went through a couple of large appliance retailers, i discovered that everyone has switched to plastic. So why did we buy this oster?. Simple: it takes less than 10% the pressure to latch/unlatch the oster vs. The panasonic, and about 20% of the pressure of the next best brand. Oster’s door latches should easily last beyond the lifetime of the oven. They are also rated very highly in the consumer rating magazine that doesn’t like people reporting on their ratings.
This microwave is perfect size for our office. It is very efficient and has a nic appearance. We purchased a different brand from somewhere else and it quit working on day 2. I have been very pleased with this product.
After a few months,, the turntable made a grinding noise when the microwave oven was in operation. We tried making adjustments by turning the ring that supports the glass tray around to see if it was meant to be placed just one way, but it made no difference.
This is a nice microwave , my only complaint is and its not that big of a deal when the timer goes off even if you open the door it continues to beep for 4 beeps.
I thought i was buying a much smaller microwave, and was very surprised at how large this one was. I paid attention to all the reviews and price point, finally deciding that this was a good buy. It is a bit noisy (you know it’s working), but it cooks my food much more evenly and much more quickly thank my old microwave.
I’ve only had it for about a week, though. Since so many microwave oven reviews complain about the short life, i bought the amazon 4-year protection plan, especially since the whirlpool i bought 3 years ago just failed. The amana radar range i had before that lasted over 30 years.
I had been looking for a microwave, came across this one (excellent price on amazon, also had good reviews) with free s & h. Ordered it a week or so before christmas, i did not think it would arrive in time but it did (very pleased with the fast shipping). Microwave buttons are self explanatory, easy to operate. I essentially only use it to warm/heat food (it’s great for those steam/cook in the bag vegetables and microwave popcorn). Have had it a little over a month and absolutely love it.
I works fine; however, its larger than my old one and it uses more power. It shorted the circuit until i moved it to another (less convenient) part of the kitchen. It was too much hassle to return it. It’s working fine in the new location. I caution you to consider energy capacity if your current microwave is smaller than this one.
Moving tray inside extremely noisy and plastic ring of poor quality.
I got this microwave because my previous oster microwave was looking kind of shabby (there was nothing wrong with it). I like my new one, but it’s buttons are different than my previous one, so i had to refer to the instruction manual to figure out how to use the power button, potato button etc. So far it meets my expectations, and i use it every day.
Came on time, right product. Makes food magically delicious.
It cooks really fast and you can barely hear it. It’s very sleek looking as well.
Overall the microwave looks great and has worked perfectly so far. I think that some of the buttons are arranged a bit counter-intuitively, but maybe i was just really used to my old microwave.
I like that it is 1200 watts of power and a lot of features on it.
Delivered promptly in good shape. Good size for everything i want to do.
