    Golden Review Award: 35 From Our UsersWe bought one of these in cream/wood finish primarily on looks. No other microwave adds to the aesthetics of a kitchen like this does. I also love the fact that it has tactile buttons, i.e. raised buttons that are easy to press and NOT those annoying hard press sunken things you get on other microwaves.

    The dial is also a lovely addition. Most of us use a microwave for 2 or 3 things. Press the express button to get 30 seconds on the clock and then you can twist the dial to increase that to 1 min or 2 min (in 10s increments), which to me is much more satisfying than repeated button pushes.

    The construction of this is absolutely on par with anything else. Samsung pr whatever I’ve no doubts about that. Any concerns anyone has raised about moisture or anything like that would apply to any other microwave.

    Gorgeous and built as well as any other microwave

    Golden Review Award: 22 From Our UsersI wanted a compact, simple, easy to use and relatively cheap microwave that would blend into our cream and wood kitchen. This fits the bill. It has a button for 30 seconds microwaving, a button for 1 minute microwaving and you can use the dial to increase or decrease the time once it’s running too. It has several power settings so you can decrease it for defrosting etc. There are some preset menus which I would never use but all microwaves seem to have this feature which I find pointless. Have been using a few weeks and it’s going fine so far.

    Update…. I’ve noticed that the digital clock gains a minute every few days, so I have to alter this whenever it gets too inaccurate. Slightly annoying.

    Golden Review Award: 4 From Our UsersI really like the look and feel of this microwave and people often compliment the look of it. It has a ceramic grey coating and the wood effect surfaces are slightly rubbery but has a softer touch than hard plastics and feels premium. I would say is the ease of use could be a bit simpler but overall very happy with it. Has worked perfectly so far, will update this review if i have any problems.

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersOK, I was swayed by the look of this microwave because most microwaves are, let’s face it, plain ugly! This one is super stylish, but not at the expense of its usability. Simple button and dials, and after reading the instructions a few times, I now understand what does what! It’s not a huge microwave either, so looks neat on the counter top, but has large enough capacity for our needs. It’s not the cheapest microwave around, but it’s certainly value for money.

    Microwave looks smart on kitchen top, bought with the matching kettle – the wooden effect handles are slightly different shades however as they are not placed together it is not an issue.

    This microwave is very aesthetically pleasing looks great in the kitchen especially with the wood effect matching the surfaces. However had i realised how loud the beeps are i probably wouldn’t have bought it, as having a toddler and a baby the beeps can disturb naps!

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersThis microwave has been great so far. I’ve been using it for about 6 weeks and can’t find much to fault it. Defrosts and cooks as well as I’d expect a microwave to cook. I’ve made jacket potatoes, cooked veg, scrambled eggs and defrosted food.
    It is a little hard to see inside the microwave at the stuff that’s cooking but no big deal. Downside is you can’t change the volume of the beeps when it is done as they are pretty loud!

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersThis microwave looks really nice, works well, and is value for money. I would give it 5 stars, but had to give it 4 because the clock is fast, very fast. After only 1 month it was fast by 4 minutes. So after a year that translates to an astonishing 48 minutes! How can you get the clock wrong? It’s the most simple thing to program (being a programmer, I know). Now I’m stuck with resetting it manually every month.

    I appreciate the clock is a secondary function, but in a kitchen with a few clocks, it’s nice to have them all synchronised.

    Other than that, very good, small and modern microwave.

    I absolutely love this microwave. I read loads of microwave reviews and this seemed to be overall the best. I went for the green colour. The door has a mirrored effect so it looks really good. The microwave is so easy to use and I am absolutely delighted with it. Also when I open the microwave door, it stays firm on the unit so the weight balance is good. I highly recommend the microwave and it was a really good price and value for money.

    Golden Review Award: 27 From Our UsersBeautiful looking design suits our kitchen perfectly.
    I think It’s a bit on the small side personally though. A large Starbucks cup for example will fit inside but the door opening is so narrow (in height) that you have to tilt the cup, potentially spilling your Caramel Brule Latte in the process!
    I also think that the 800watt power rating is a little over stated – our old 800w microwave seemed a little faster/hotter, don’t get me wrong, it’s there’s not a huge difference, I don’t have a ‘proper’ way of testing its power output, I’m not “comparing eggs with eggs”, so I might be doing it an injustice.
    Overall it is a great little “mee-cro-wa-vay” as Nigella Lawson likes to say

    I have only given it 4 stars as the first one we received didn’t work. It lit up and turned – but no heat. The replacement and return process was really easy and fuss free.

    The microwave is very sleek, soft to touch ( I know random, but true it has a silky feel), and of course does the usual things I microwave does. I would recommend and think it looks super stylish in the kitchen.

    The door is also a slightly different colour to the body of the microwave.

    First one barely worked a few weeks, but did get a replacement which was good news. The new one seems to currently be behaving.

    This is another case of a product of this range not quite being right. Items that was microwave safe for all my old microwaves seemed to upset this one, be careful of any product that might have any metallic content going inside, including food apparently.

    The digital display went whack and even resetted itself or even turned off.

    My replacement seems to be working OK, but it’s a bit sad when my newest microwave is so sensitive I have to stop using products my old microwaves happily heated up without a problem.

    Very pleased with this microwave. I downsized and had no built in microwave but prefer this sitting on worktop. I only ever used a microwave to heat things up despite having an all singing all dancing one before so this is perfect. It’s simple to use and has more functions and I’ve actually used the defrost mode with this although I need to read the instructions to do more. Knowing me I’ll still just use it mainly for heating up beans etc !

    “Hugely! Hugely, Impressed with this item”. The Company – Business, known as Swan I have purchased over the years & watched them steadily improving in both Quality & Design. Also reasonably affordable within the market place & longevity of their products equall to say the more expensive other brands of manufactures available to the Customer within the market place. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their goods whatsoever. “Outstanding & Very Stylish & easily ie Functional. Impressive & Well thought out Designs etc. (though I could of done without having to make such a purchase just b4 the New Year 2022. Holidays) : (

    : ) Now having the bread bin the Nordic Kettle & the Nordic Microwave this rreview pertains, relates to in my kitchen & I can honestly say I have not (as yet ?) had any problems with them.
    Priced… A Humble Reasonable! though if anything, though perhaps I shouldn’t say they are undervalued, priced. As I would of happily paid more for their items. Very Very Pleased indeed.
    Exceptional Without doubt, “Highly Recommended”!! from a fussy high standard customer ,& both Swan & Amazon have delivered.

    PS, sometimes if like me you look for, in your own opinion the best of a product you have to spend time searching on here for a considerable amount of time to eventually find Amazon’s some hidden gems!

    This doesn’t do anything particularly special as microwaves go, but that’s just fine. In my case it replaced a boggo Tesco microwave that started playing up and I fancied something a bit stylish. I’ve no interest in being matchy-matchy and already have a good kettle and toaster so won’t be adding the rest of the Nordic range to this.

    It’s pretty compact. It fits one of my massive dinner plates just fine but I wouldn’t mind a little bit more height, it’s right on the cusp for heating a packet of rice or a big jug of something. On the plus side it fits nicely in the space vacated by my tiny former microwave.

    The buttons all make sense and are nice and tactile and the mirrored front doesn’t get too grubby, it’s easy to wipe down.

    Problems are really minor. The beep’s pretty obnoxious, the clock can’t keep time and occasionally I hear a squeak/creak as the plate rotates.
