In the fast-paced world that we live in today, a microwave is one of those kitchen appliances that you can’t afford to miss in your kitchen so that you’re always able to prepare meals on the go. For some people, a microwave that comes with just a couple of basic features will do just fine, while for others, one that can perform as many cooking functions as possible would be the most ideal. For another basic model with a retro look, take a look at our COSTWAY Retro Turn Dial microwave oven review.

The stainless steel Magic Chef microwave happens to be a little bit of both. It’s got a wide range of basic features that rank it among the best microwave for seniors, and it’s also got a number of advanced features that’ll save you a lot of time in the kitchen. With an interior capacity of 0.9 cu ft, it’ll also make a great choice for anyone shopping around for the best compact microwave, and if this might be you, then make sure you get to the end of this review to see what it’s got in store.

Why We Like It – Magic Chef 0.9 cu ft 900w

The Magic Chef 0.9 cu ft 900w microwave is a mid-size option that’s best used by a small family. It’s got all the basic features that allow for day-to-day use, and is available in either white, black, or red. The microwave is also backed by a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty, and enough cooking power to be able to prepare your favorite meals. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a larger model, check out the Frigidaire built-in microwave which has a 2.2 cu. ft. interior capacity.

Pros
  • Simple, attractive design
  • 6 Auto cook options
  • 1 Year Warranty
Cons
  • No eco mode

Power & Performance

The 0.9 cu ft countertop microwave from Magic chef boasts up to 900 watts in power output, which is much less than the LG NeoChef’s 1600 watts. The 900 watts is just about fine for preparing meals for a small family or a single individual. Just like the Commercial Chef CHM009, the Magic Chef microwave oven features up to 10 different power levels, as well as 6 one-touch auto cook settings that shorten the amount of time it takes to prepare some of your favorite meals. There’s also an auto defrost feature that allows you to defrost by either time or weight, and this is very convenient since you won’t need to do any guesswork whenever you’re not sure how long it’ll take to thaw your frozen fruits, meat, or vegetables.

Durability

The Magic chef countertop microwave shouldn’t ideally give you any issues in regards to keeping it nice and well cleaned up. It’s got a glass turntable that you can remove whenever you need to clean, and with a 1 year warranty in tow, it’s very unlikely that you’ll encounter problems during your first year of use, but in case you do, their customer service team remains more than ready to help you out. The older versions of the 0.9 cu ft microwave used to feature a push button door, but the current version comes with a handle. Whether or not this is more convenient depends on the user, but both models do include a child safety lock that you can use to prevent any unauthorized use.

Ease of Use

This Magic chef countertop microwave oven has all its touch keys well laid out on the control panel, so even a kid should be able to figure out how to get it to work without any problem. Unlike the Top Rotary Commercial Microwave, or even the Nostalgia microwave, it’s got a quick 30-second timer that you can use to get it working fast, and up to 6 auto cook menus that have the 900-watt microwave prepare your meals a whole lot faster. The Comfee EM720CPL PMB Countertop microwave, on the other hand, has a control panel that has well-labeled controls that make it really easy to decide on what you’d want to do.

Added Features & Versatility

There aren’t a lot of standout features with the Magic Chef 0.9 cu ft countertop microwave oven, but what a lot of people might find appealing is the full white, black or red color that you should be able to get the microwave in. This allows you to choose a color option that blends in well with your kitchen decor. We do wish it came with a mute button like the Toshiba EM925A5A, but even without that, it’s still a great microwave.

Value

The brand Magic chef is well known for manufacturing good quality kitchen appliances. You’ll also find a wide range of compact refrigerators, washing machines, and other home appliances that you can have a look at if you’re interested in their products.

Magic Chef 0.9 cu ft 900w Wrap Up

The stainless steel Magic Chef 0.9 cubic feet microwave is a simple yet elegant choice for a microwave. It’s received a lot of positive customer reviews on Amazon thanks to its style and ease of use, but to get an accurate depiction of what it’s like to own, make sure you read the comments by users who have been tagged as having made a verified purchase.
