This 1100 watt microwave with 1.2 cubic feet capacity and sensor cook technology ensures easy cooking and defrosting in no time.

Brand:Toshiba
Model: B071WCB1T6
Color:Black Stainless Steel

*At the time of publishing, the price was $30.

Features

This 20.5 x 17.1 x 12.8’’ Toshiba microwave oven has stainless steel black exterior with a large internal capacity and 12.4” turntable diameter. The easy-to-clean interior coating is easy to wipe with a damp cloth for simple maintenance.

FEATURES

We believe the coolest feature this Toshiba microwave has is Sensor cooking. This senses the humidity and automatically adjusts the cooking time and power required for the best results. The integrated smart sensor comes with 6 Pre-programmed menus for the most popular foods like frozen pizza, rice, potato, and fresh veggies. Custom and auto defrost functions make defrosting quick and simple. Other features include Portion/weight indication, melt, soften, and 12 preset recipes.

EASE OF USE

We give it the highest marks for this ease-of-use category. Opening and closing this oven is super-convenient with its large easy-grip door handle, unlike the press button. Then there’s a one-touch easy start. The large digital display is easy to read while the control panel has all the timer, clock, and power settings.

QUALITY

Quality-wise, this microwave is built to last for years. It’s sturdy, powerful yet so compact to fit most kitchen countertops.

VALUE

Good value for money! Equipped with the latest cooking technology, this microwave oven is also easy to maintain. Thanks to the eco-power saving mode, you’ll likely save 50% operating costs and energy consumption on standby mode. Hard-wearing components make it stain and scratch-resistant. Its black stainless steel finish complements every décor or setting.

Our Recommendation

This microwave is best suitable for those with limited countertop space. It has a smaller footprint yet so spacious interior to defrost or cook a whole turkey. For those who don’t prefer a countertop microwave with loud beeps and bells, this can be a perfect choice with its sound on/off feature.

However, it lacks the convection feature and won’t work with Alexa.
