If you\u2019re searching for the best microwaves fit for a dorm room, office, or small apartment, but don\u2019t want to break the bank, the Toshiba EM925A5A-SS will be your hero. It\u2019s not only compact in size, but that doesn\u2019t stop it from performing its necessary duties when the time comes, cooking your food to optimal temperatures.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Toshiba EM925A5A-SS Microwave Oven\r\nThe Toshiba EM925A5A-SS Microwave Oven combines solid performance and a compact design, while keeping its price low and affordable to most\u2014ideal for college students and small apartments.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Toshiba EM925A5A-SS does a solid job cooking just about any meal you throw at it. While it isn\u2019t the fastest at cooking, it isn\u2019t slow either. For what you pay, you\u2019re getting an excellent deal for its performance. Part of its performance comes from its inverter technology, InverTech. However, you start having problems when heating strangely shaped food, but that\u2019s typical of most microwave ovens. In this case, thicker areas tend to be a few degrees colder. This is partly to do with it maxing out at 900W, which is 350W fewer than the Panasonic NN-SN966S.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Toshiba EM925A5A-SS Microwave is rather compact in design. It\u2019ll fit nicely in a small apartment or dorm room. If you\u2019re placing one in your home, there\u2019s a child safety lock so curious hands aren\u2019t being too adventurous.\r\n\r\nFor a microwave, it has an appealing stainless steel finish, equipped with an interior LED light. Having a stainless steel exterior is pretty common, but the steel looks nice for being brushed. Unlike other microwave ovens, it\u2019s easy to use, providing all the necessary settings at hand, along with a large digital display. You won\u2019t find an unnecessary Amazon Alexa button like you would with the AmazonBasics Microwave.\r\nValue\r\nTo best gauge the value of the Toshiba EM925A5A-SS Microwave Oven is to compare it to its cousin, the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS Stainless Steel Microwave. They\u2019re the same in almost every regard except power levels and pricing. The EM131A5C-BS caps at 1100W, while the EM925A5A-SS caps at 900W. For a 200W difference, you\u2019ll pay $40 more. That isn\u2019t cost efficient. You can\u2019t argue with this countertop microwave\u2019s pricing. Even the GE JNM3163RJSS at 1000W is nearly three times the cost for a 100W difference.\r\nToshiba EM925A5A-SS Microwave Oven Wrap Up\r\nFor what it\u2019s worth, the Toshiba Microwave EM925A5A-SS is a solid workhorse for regular use. It will cook food pretty quickly and evenly, for the most part. Occasionally you\u2019ll have a meal that didn\u2019t have even cooking, which a little extra time in the microwave will fix. Still, it\u2019s easy to use, and its compact size makes it ideal for small spaces.
