    Great microwave |
    0

    This is a great microwave. It works great and it looks beautiful. I actually purchased mine online from walmart, but I order from amazon alot and wanted to put my review here for all of you. I've had mine almost 2 months now. It has a 3 prong grounding plug. It's 900 watts and heats things up a lot faster than my other microwave, so I'm still getting use to that. I'm going to try and address everything I see people asking questions about. First off, when you hit a number, for example 2, it will automatically start cooking 2 minutes. You can press the start button and add 30 seconds. If you want a specific time, for example 3 minutes and 45 seconds, you can press the power button, then the numbers, 3,4, and 5. It will start cooking 3 min. 45 secs. It has a lot of buttons for specific items like popcorn, pizza, dinner plate, defrost, etc. It has a normal hum when running. It has a turntable. The clock is displayed in green. It beeps 5 times, not super loud but loud enough, then stops. The light comes on when you open the door and while cooking. It has an easy to use child safety lock to lock the door. I've not had any problems with fingerprints on the exterior.The handle pulls easily. It has a nice weight to it. I have mine on a cabinet with grip bottom shelving paper under it, so I don't know if it would slide on a smooth surface or not, mine doesn't. The inside dimensions are 12 in. wide, 12 in. deep, and 8 in. high. The turntable plate is 10 1/2 in. Plenty of room for most things you microwave. For the outside dimensions, the width (side to side) is 19 in., the height is 11 1/2 in. The outside dimensions given for depth includes the slight protrusion in back and the handle. The actual microwave is 13 in deep without the handle and protrusion in the back. Here's the best way to let you know the depth to know if it will fit on your shelf or wherever else you put it. I have my microwave sitting on a cabinet which is 1 in. from the wall. I have it sitting 1 1/2 in. from the back of the cabinet. The actual protrusion is about 1 in from the back of the cabinet. There are vents in the back (and on the side opposite the handle-left side if you're facing the microwave) plus the protrusion, so it needs some space. This means I have it 2 1/2 in. total from the wall. It comes out 15 in. from the back of my cabinet. The front legs sit back 2 1/2 in., which means that it is 12 1/2 in. from the back of my cabinet to the front legs. So, if your shelf is 12 1/2 in. deep, the legs would all fit on the shelf with the protrusion being 1 in. from the back of your shelf. I have the extra inch from the back of the cabinet to the wall, so if you don't, you might need your shelf to be at least 13 to 13 1/2 in. deep to give you more vent space. I think this covers everything. I think you'll be satisfied if you purchase this microwave.

    Initial review of Stainless Steel Danby 1000 Watt 1.1 cu. ft. - VERY PLEASED! A WINNER!! |
    0

    REVIEW of: Danby DMW111KPSSDD 1.1 cu ft , 1000 watt microwave THE GOOD: - THE BEEPS ARE NOT OBNOXIOUSLY LOUD! You get 4 discrete beeps when things are done and...even better...you get only one (1) beep if you interrupt/stop/reset things. - THE FAN IS * NOT * TOO LOUD!!! (No Jet plane takeoffs here!) Thank God! - THE LIGHT COMES ON WHEN THE DOOR IS OPENED. This may seem like a no brainer but Panasonic, some LG and other brands do * not * turn the light on except when you are actually cooking. To me that is bad design. This 1.1 cu ft Danby does not have that problem. - The DOOR DOES NOT FIGHT ME!! Easy door release with press of large release button in bottom right-hand corner. Door closes easily. - This 1.1 cu. ft. 1000 Watt microwave cooks evenly, has the best of both worlds: "pictograph" buttons for Popcorn, Beverage, Pizza, Frozen Dinner, Baked Potato and Reheat and.... - It has the Cook Time / Power Level button if you want to get nitpicky. - It has Cook by Weight, Defrost by Weight and Speed Defrost. - Seems to cook evenly. Also, has never burned Popcorn on Popcorn setting no kernels unpopped. - Stainless steel unit looks good and it's all CHROME/STAINLESS INSIDE. (This is a big deal if you read all the reviews of GE and other Microwaves where the plastic is warping or paint coming off...a common complaint). - Power cord is substantial, unit feels well made for it's price point. INTERNAL DIMENSIONS: It's 14 inches wide INTERNALLY, has a carousel and it's 8.5" high internally and 14.5" deep internally. Large enough for a good sized lasagna package (point of reference). ______________________________________________________________________________________ THE BAD: No "Add 30 seconds" button. Moooo. Oh well , this Microwave is such a winner in every other way that I'm not going to let that bug me. ______________________________________________________________________________________ EXTRA STUFF I LEARNED: When shopping for my microwave(our last one died after 10 years) - I looked at the reviews for various brands. Many MANY brands. Panasonic, LG, Frigidaire, Oster, Cuisinart, Amana, etc. COMMON THEME IN COMMENTS FOR ALL BRANDS: Like anything else - they don't make 'em like they used to. Consumer microwaves of various name brands (doesn't matter) all seem to last 1 to maybe 3 years. About 5 - 10 percent of purchasers seem to have microwave failure between 4 months and a year. In short, with Consumer grade microwaves, it's a crap shoot. You are spending anywhere from 4 to 10 dollars a month to "rent" your microwave before it goes to the dumpster. I don't mean to depress you but that's what I have learned. If you get 3 years out of a microwave in the $80 - $350 range consider yourself lucky. ALTERNATE BUT KLUNKY SOLUTION: You can buy a Commercial Grade (Heavy Duty) microwave (Panasonic and Amana make them) in the $350 - $450 range but these "tanks" usually have no programming features. Just a continuous dial with time increments of 1 - 10 min, sometimes 1 - 15 min. They last. They are not sexy but they are workhorses. Not for me. We have these in my work cafeteria, first of all they remind me of work and second of all I really like some programming feature convenience and a rotating carousel. A common complaint I read of the Panasonic "inverter" technology is that the food smell stayed (or got embedded in the microwave) for like 3 weeks. (You cook a ham, the microwave smells like ham for 3 weeks). Another common annoyance is that microwaves that have LOUD fans and a series of 3 LOUD beeps regardless of it you pull the door open to stop cooking or hit reset, etc. I chose the Danby because it has none of these issues, comes in at a reasonable price, looks good and has a very good interface. NOTE: I did not buy this Danby microwave from Amazon because I needed one NOW. Every place online seemed to be out of Danby DMW111KPSSDD or had in-stock dates 5 days down the road. I paid more for it to buy it locally but I feel it's still a good deal undiscounted for this reason: it lacks a lot of the "designed in" AGGRAVATIONS that Panasonic and LG couldn't be bothered to fix out of the gate! NOTE 2: As of 10/16/2014 this Danby DMW111KPSSDD can be obtained for between $89.99 (rock bottom sale) to $141.00 (high price). HOW TO SET COOKING HEAT LEVEL / INTENSITY on the Danby 1.1 cu ft. Microwave: 1. Enter how long you want to cook [Example entering 3 , zero, zero (300) will be 3 min]. THEN,... 2. Press the "Power Level" button and enter how hot you want your food to get as follows ---> WHAT TO DO: If you enter say a number "4" that will be 40% power intensity. Entering number "6" will be 60%, a number "8" entered will be 80% of full power, etc. If you want to back out things, hit Reset button and try again. SO...WHY WOULD ONE BOTHER WITH LOWER POWER SETTINGS? , i.e. "Why not just go with High all the time?" ANSWER: 1. Because some foods cook so quickly they can burn your mouth if you don't tone it down. 2. To eliminate hot/cold spots (more even cooking, albeit done over a longer period of time). I use the Power Level setting a lot for breakfast patties. I find that 4 minutes duration and entering "4" (for 40% power) works great for 2 patties. I also use it for reheating cold spaghetti sauce from the fridge that I don't want to spatter everywhere. ______________________________________________________________________________________________ UPDATE: MARCH 1st, 2016 So we've had the Danby 1.1 cu. ft in heavy use for 1 year and 4 months. It still runs well, cooks food well. Nothing about the unit has warped or corroded or cracked. A ** FEW ** minor quirks: 1. In the past week, we have noticed the door occcasionally getting a little reticent to open. Like it hangs for a millisecond. Like one out of 8 times. It's not a big deal... yet. Maybe something needs cleaning, etc? I'll inspect it more on the weekend. 2. We have found that VERY occasionally that when cooking a LONG time (like giant Lasangna frozen dinner) it will go into a thermal shutdown of sorts. We have to wait a minute, unplug and replug and finish cooking. This has happened maybe say... 4 - 5 times since we have owned it. NOW - we have this stuffed in a corner under a cabinet on our kitchen countertop (we don't have that many choices for where to place the microwave in our kitchen). I frankly WELCOME that it does thermal shutdown. It sure beats overheating and burning your house down! I just have the sense it was engineered that the unit should shutdown if it's it's outrunning it's safety "thermal envelope". It may very well be that people who have enough counter space to have this completely out in the open will never experience the occasional issue that I ran into. I still give this 5 stars. 3. The membrane keypad still works, it is getting "slightly" fiddly over time. Barely noticeable but it's there. I suspect that in 2 - 3 years I may need a new microwave. That would make this a 5 year expenditure for 90 bucks. That's $1.50 a month. Not too bad really. At this point I would still buy this again and can still recommend this --> 1.1 cu ft. <--- stainless steel model.

    Great Space Saver |
    Verified Purchase

    I have a small kitchen and my old microwave was a full sized microwave that took up a large amount of cabinet space and seemed out of place because of its size. Shopped around and found this smaller sized unit but was hesitant because it is 700 watts while my old unit was 1000 watts. However, I have found that cooking time in this unit is insignificantly longer than the old microwave. A few second for most things. I don't actually cook in it but use it for warming left overs or frozen snacks, etc. For my use it is perfect and it is an attractive addition to my kitchen rather than a huge distraction. If you need a smaller sized microwave, I highly recommend this one.

    Weird. |
    Verified Purchase

    Served its purpose since I recieved it in September, but yesterday this happened out of nowhere. The door was not slammed, nobody or nothing hit or bumped the front, it just started as a small crack and gradually did this. I'm at a loss.

    Good Buy |
    Verified Purchase

    So, I needed a basic microwave, nothing fancy. Let's face it, no kitchen can function can live with out one. Don't know how the settlers survived lol. Anyway, it arrived in about a week in perfect condition. And far exceeded my expectations. It looks just like the pic and even displays the time, and has a timer. It cooks very well also. Over all yes, buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Thank goodness I had it at work and not at home don't have small children or animals but I'm sure if I did they would of gotten hurt!

    fits the space |
    Verified Purchase

    We needed this size and the Danby works. The controls are a little quirky, you have to put a "0" in front of the timer to set minutes but not all the time... took some getting used to. The only real design flaw is that, unlike most microwaves where you push a button and the door pops open, you have to pull the handle on this one. And the machine is so small and light that you need two hand to open the door or the whole thing moves around and doesn't open. This can be a pain. But if you need this size, the cooking is fine.

    DANGEROUSLY DEFECTIVE! |
    Verified Purchase

    BUYER BEWARE! Have owned this microwave for 7 months and it is used occasionally by 2 adults. The glass pane on the door completely shattered and sprayed glass shards everywhere after simply pressing the button to open the door. VERY DANGEROUS. Amazon did nothing as the 30 day window for returns expired, which is unfortunate given that (1) the product is obviously defective, and (2) the life of an appliance--regardless of cost--should last longer than 7 months. Now I have to contact the manufacturer, have them file a claim, see if they will agree to fix the busted microwave, and wait the endless days while eating cold pizza. Pay more for something better!

    pad very delicate |
    Verified Purchase

    The button pad gets very easily torn up. I'm not a heavy handed person. Owned this a few months and the pad is torn up. Looks like something was chewing on it. Especially the start and clear buttons. Would have spent a bit more for a sturdier pad. Otherwise it works great and looks good.

    I bought this microwave for my college dorm room and their isn't a day that goes by that I regret it! This microwave is relatively quiet and very easy to clean. It is also the perfect amount of watts to keep the university off my back!
