Emerson MW9107WC - 1.1 cu. ft. Microwave Oven With Touch Control And Omni Wave(TM) Cooking System

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I purchased Emerson's 1.1 cu. ft. microwave oven ($89.99 MSRP) seven or eight months ago. It was one of the few white microwaves I was able to find, a color I desired based on the cabinetry and other appliances in my kitchen. It was also one of the largest microwaves I identified in my price range ($100 or less), and it is the largest microwave in Emerson's collection. Initially selected for its color and size, it is now appreciated because it is easy to use and easy to clean.

My favorite feature of the microwave is its one-touch cooking. If you want to heat a dish for 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 minutes, all you have to do is press the number button corresponding to the number of minutes you'd like to cook the dish. I find that the one-touch system works well for reheating foods. Even if I am melting butter or performing another heating task that takes less than one minute, I just press "1" and wait stop the microwave when the item has been cooked long enough.

Some microwaves have flimsy panels on the inside, but this machine does not. While the hot plate and its mounting gear are removable, everything else inside the oven is solid and remains in place during cleaning. A washcloth or sponge is great for cleaning up spills and splatters just after they occur, but if you let the food set, you'll have to use a bit of elbow grease to get it out, which can be awkward when it comes to messes on the ceiling and walls of the machine.

The one downside of this microwave is that it does not always heat foods evenly. Vegetable soup, chili and casseroles are dishes that commonly turn out partially cold and partially hot. I don't know if this is a problem with most or even all microwaves, but it is certainly a problem with this one. With a bit of stirring throughout the cycle, the dishes turn out evenly heated, but it would be nice if the stop-and-stir step could be left out.

While I would love it if certain dishes could be heated more evenly, I am happy with the overall performance of the microwave. The machine has not had any major problems or malfunctions during the time I have had it. It is big enough to hold most of the things I want to heat, including large mixing bowls, and is easy to use and clean. If you are looking for a reasonably priced microwave oven that is moderate in size, this is one to consider.
