A microwave is one of those small appliances that you can hardly miss in anyone\u2019s 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. The stainless steel Farberware microwave is one of the best microwaves has some of the features that\u2019ll 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.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Farberware Microwave\r\nThe 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\u2019s packed with make it a huge bargain for its price.\r\n\r\nPower & Performance\r\nThe 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\u2019re just with one partner. Cooking might take slightly longer than with the Toshiba EM925A5A-BS being a 900 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.\r\nDurability\r\nAll Farberware cookware is backed by a limited lifetime guarantee, so if you go ahead and purchase the Farberware classic microwave, you\u2019ll be able to contact support anytime in case a problem comes about with your unit. This is far better than the 1 year warranty that you\u2019ll get with the MG14H3020CM Samsung microwave oven.\r\nEase of Use\r\nNavigating through the control panel of this stainless steel Farberware 700 watt countertop microwave is pretty easy to do because everything on it is well labelled. It\u2019s LED display is also well lit, and its push to release button feels pretty solid to use. You\u2019re also probably going to appreciate the express cooking quickstart controls that get the microwave started up at high power, and you\u2019ll 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.\r\nAdditional Features & Versatility\r\nAside from smart sensor cooking, there are a couple of perks on this Farberware microwave that you probably won\u2019t get with the Panasonic NN-SD372S, despite it being almost $150 more expensive. For instance, there\u2019s 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\u2019ll be able to pre program the microwave to go through certain cooking stages, and have them saved through its memory function.\r\nValue\r\nThere\u2019s 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\u2019t use inverter technology. If it did, energy consumption would\u2019ve been more efficient, and food would also have been more well cooked and rounded.\r\nFarberware Microwave Wrap Up\r\nThe 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.
