For something used a few times a week, mainly defrosting and reheating cups of drink it didn't last at all well. The microwave it replaced was nearly 10 years old when packed up, not very good value. The replacement one will not be one of the cheap supermarket one's… Read Full Review

Perhaps you will return to these hallowed columns one day, and tell us that the 'not one of the cheap supermarket one's' [hello, you've found my missing apostrophe :-)] has lasted longer than 'at all well'.

Please allow me to inform you that the mechanism that generates the microwaves in the supermarket own-brands is identical to the mechanism in the branded ones - power for power, but the branded ones may have stainless steel oven cavities and electronic timing gizmos that have to be paid for.

As an electronics/electrical engineer of many years hands-on experience, I can assure you that the reliability factor across ALL products that slurp electrons to function is virtually a complete lottery and paying higher prices doesn't alter that.

Written on: 19/05/2006 by Bertie (27 reviews written)

£24.43 for a 700 Watt output microwave oven! You can't go wrong can you and even if it should fail just after the 1-year Tesco guarantee runs out, at that price I would feel I'd had my money's worth. We bought our first microwave in 1978 costing close to £400. It was a larger model than this one with 850 Watts output but my cup-of-water test didn't show much difference in the time it took to boil so there doesn't appear to be much between 700 and 850 Watts.

The oven interior measures 28 X 28… Read Full Review

Just to say this microwave is STILL working and hasn't given the slightest trouble in over six years despite getting heavy use.

I did mention 'rust' and 'seams' in my review and indeed rust has formed in the rear lower one particularly but as the steel has not yet perforated, I simply wirewool it off. I will only get a similar new oven when it finally eats through the steel or there is a catastrophic failure like the magnetron (the microwave generator) giving up the ghost.

Over six trouble-free years use for less than twenty five quid, folks!!

Tesco DID have the word 'value' in its description :-).
