Hamilton Beach P100N30AP-S3W First Impressions

"Those days are gone!"

The manual states 3 seconds, but I think it is more like 4 seconds. This model has very easy to use and convenient control features. At this point, would order this unit again. It is quiet, convenient buttons, hardly any cleaning, and looks great. Then press number pads to select a different power level. As I get more practice with it I will try to remember to update this review. I had been searching for a good microwave for quite some time.

Hamilton Beach P100N30AP-S3W Final Thoughts

"But I forgot about it."

Excellent features for various cooking options. Overall, we're delighted with this purchase. Apparently the confusion is that the 1. The control pad is easy to understand. Microwave went out, needed a new one. It had a good long life of burnt popcorn and cold reheated food. Glad it matches with our existing appliances, too.

"But I forgot about it."

My last oven went on and on and nagged worse than my ex-husband. It's taken about 2 weeks to quit slamming the door on this one, lol. We didn't need a fancy machine with all the bells and whistles. It's intuitive to use, just like the old one was. Being able to turn the sound off is a blessing. One of the main reasons I chose this microwave is you can program it NOT TO BEEP. You change the power level AFTER you enter the cooking time.

WINIA WOR07R2ZEW Final Thoughts

"Now about the Panasonic."

The sensor cooking functions are excellent. For people that have had other Panasonics, THE DOOR CLOSES EASILY and WITHOUT FORCE. Otherwise, this seems like a great microwave. I'll update the review as necessary should this projection change appreciably. I have been looking years for a microwave that doesn't beep. I have been looking years for a microwave that doesn't beep. I promptly called my husband over to also observe what the mug of water was doing.

Panasonic NN-SN67KS Final Thoughts

"Until last week."

The button beeps are quite loud, so silencing them is a good option. Searching through the reviews and questions, we found out why. Microwave went out, needed a new one. It's taken about 2 weeks to quit slamming the door on this one, lol. It's intuitive to use, just like the old one was. Personally I need the beeping because I tend to wander off. Wow the best microwave I've ever owned.

"You did it mommy!"

The buttons are clear and easy to read. Oh great, I blew a fuse or WORSE, I thought. I couldn't find the owner's manual. So, I decided to actually use the popcorn button. Apparently the confusion is that the 1. So it isn't slamming the food with either all or nothing. Shipping was so fast, I received it in two days!

"Now about the Panasonic."

Otherwise, this seems like a great microwave. We didn't need a fancy machine with all the bells and whistles. The wax had boiled and melted the container and destroyed the microwave. This oven is on the small size of the spectrum of sizes, but not too small. The manual needs to clarify that this is how you use the Power Level button. Excellent features for various cooking options. This microwave cooks much faster and more throughly than other microwaves.

"Just a solid microwave."

I also love the easy minute settings. Or sometimes I would cook something and part of the dish would be hot, and part cool. Just press the number of minutes you want and then press 30 seconds. The microwave when running is quieter than most. Just press the number of minutes you want and then press 30 seconds. Lots of functions, different defrost powers, etc. So it isn't slamming the food with either all or nothing.

"So far so good!"

It would come out with the end of the piece rubbery, and the rest cooked ok. The buttons are clear and easy to read. Just swing the door with a light push and it's closed! I didn't know you could still do that. It is quiet, convenient buttons, hardly any cleaning, and looks great. So, I decided to actually use the popcorn button. Lots of functions, different defrost powers, etc.

It's like a well cooked restaurant meal! When you reach a certain age, you start rethinking some things. Otherwise, this seems like a great microwave. It's like a well cooked restaurant meal!

"Reheats food quickly."

The wax had boiled and melted the container and destroyed the microwave. But that's the climate of business models we live with today. Very happy with my purchase and the price is reasonable. The 1 thru 6 and 30 second buttons are useful. Although, nice looking if you wish to leave it counter top. So, we asked for a new microwave, which Amazon sent us. Quite different from the old one that had to be slammed or forced manually.

It has a good time cook and a defrost that works well. Additionally, the weight is very light-weight for its size. Overall, we are very happy with this microwave! When you reach a certain age, you start rethinking some things. It gets a top rating from Consumer Reports for reliability. At least it is much quieter than the old GE.

We do not have that so we have to finagle something to keep it properly. 2 cu ft Toshiba bc many Amazon patrons said it had a mute button. Being able to turn the sound off is a blessing. This is how I've modified our manual, which we keep near the microwave. At this point, would order this unit again. 9 cu ft model just to have the mute button. Great microwave as it should be for this price lol.
