The Emerson Stainless Steel 700 Watt MW8781SB Microwave Oven offers a multi-functional solution for consumers who are seeking a microwave that includes all the basic cooking settings at a competitive price.

Sold at an MSRP of $55.00, I purchased this model upon moving to my first apartment, and it has performed without issue after three years of daily usage.

Crafted with a sleek design, it complements existing appliances without consuming excessive space. Due to its minimalist structure, it is ideal for use in small areas. Featuring an internal glass turntable, it is perfect for items which require rotation during the cooking process. An alert buzzer sounds to indicate when cooking is finished, and although the sound is pleasant enough to the ear, it rings periodically on a constant basis until the user actually removes the item from the microwave. This is a handy feature for people who are easily distracted and could potentially forget to retrieve their food from inside the oven. Additionally, this model features a child lock-out feature to help ensure peace of mind from parents with inquisitive children.

With 0.7 cubic feet of cooking space, the oven is roomy enough to handle any large or oddly shaped items with ease without restricting the heating components.

The unit features ten power levels and six preset cooking options, which can be activated with a single touch. Intended for use when making specific items such as soup and popcorn, these settings seemed convenient at first blush, but personal experience has proved that it is always best to follow the item's packaging instructions for guidance, since using the preset options has rarely resulted in fully cooked food.

This is a suitable microwave oven for people who are looking for a durable device at a reasonable price.
