A microwave is one of those small appliances that you can hardly miss in anyone’s kitchen. It helps you put together your food really quickly, and with the right kind of features, it can have you avoid doing a lot of cooking that you otherwise may not be too keen on doing. Speaking of features, you’ll find some helpful cooking features on the GE Profile PEB9159SJSS convection microwave review.

The stainless steel Farberware microwave is one of the best microwaves and has some of the features that’ll have you avoid doing a significant amount of cooking, and with its 0.7 cubic foot of interior capacity, it falls squarely into the compact microwave category. Make sure you get to the end of this review to find out if it’s the best compact microwave for you.

Why We Like It – Farberware Microwave

The stainless steel black, white, or matte black Farberware Microwave is one of the best and most affordable microwave ovens out there, and the wide range of features that it’s packed with make it a huge bargain for its price.

  • Feature packed and very affordable
  • Multistage cooking & Memory function
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty
  • Relatively low 700 Wattage

Power & Performance

The Farberware microwave oven comes packed with up to 700 Watts of power output, and that makes it a pretty decently powered microwave especially if you live by yourself or you’re just with one partner. Cooking might take slightly longer, just like it would with the Daewoo microwave, which is also a 700-watt microwave oven, but if you still want to stay below the $70 mark, then it remains the better option between the two. They both come with 6 one touch cooking preprogrammed options that you might find pretty convenient when preparing a dinner plate or other specific meals, and the function to defrost by time or weight.


All Farberware cookware is backed by a limited lifetime guarantee, so if you go ahead and purchase the Farberware classic microwave, you’ll be able to contact support anytime in case a problem comes about with your unit. This is far better than the 90-day warranty that you’ll get with the Nostalgia RMO770RED microwave.

Ease of Use

Navigating through the control panel of this stainless steel Farberware 700-watt countertop microwave is pretty easy to do because everything on it is well labeled. It’s LED display is also well lit, and its push to release button feels pretty solid to use. You’re also probably going to appreciate the express cooking quickstart controls that get the microwave started up at high power, and you’ll be able to choose between 1 and 6 minutes of cooking whenever you start doing this. Child lock to prevent unauthorized use is a feature worth investing in, try the Equator 0.8 Microwave Convection Oven as it has this feature.

Additional Features & Versatility

Aside from smart sensor cooking, there are a couple of perks on this Farberware microwave that you probably won’t get with the Panasonic NN-SD372S, despite it being almost $150 more expensive. For instance, there’s no multi stage cooking feature on the Panasonic. The Farberware microwave is capable of taking your food through different cooking stages, and on top of that, you’ll be able to pre-program the microwave to go through certain cooking stages, and have them saved through its memory function.


There’s a choice of up to 3 colors that you can opt to get this Farberware Classic microwave in. You can choose to have it in black stainless steel, white, or even black matte, and all those choices will look great on any countertop. The only qualms we have about this microwave is that it doesn’t use inverter technology. If it did, energy consumption would’ve been more efficient, and food would also have been more well-cooked and rounded.

Farberware Microwave Wrap Up

The brand Farberware has been around for over 100 years, and this has been more than enough time to establish themselves as a reliable manufacturer of kitchen appliances. The Farberware microwave happens to be one of their most popular models not only because of its low cost, but really because of the many features that it comes bundled with.
