Great Low Wattage Microwave

Model Number: EM-S2598S
"If you don't use the microwave a lot, this is a fantastic product. The touchpad is not very sensitive but easy to get used to. The only negative is the unit has to be plugged in for several hours before setting the clock; the instruction manual doesn't tell you that."

too many beeps

Pros: cute & works well
Cons: excessive beeps
"this little guy beeps 5 beeps at the end of its cycle, really? I can see 1 or 2 beeps but 5 beeps is too much. I emailed tech support @ Sanyo and there is no way to adjust this."

Excellent Countertop Microwave

"Excellent Countertop Microwave, saves a lot of space. Very powerful especially for a small size microwave. I am glad I found it."

Excellent Choice

"I am a purchasing specialist for a large nursery and have purchased two of these microwaves for our lunch room. They have all the features of a high-end oven without the high price. I did my comparision shopping before buying these and no one could touch the quality for this price."

Perfect microwave for me

Pros: compact size, nice looks, the price
Model Number: EM-S2589S
"I bought it two days ago at the Costco. It looks smaller in person than in the catalog. I like everything about it so far, looks, size, the features and the price.
I was looking to replace my 20+ yr old oven which had died a few days ago because of push button to open the door broke. New one has a pull to open door which has one less thing to worry unlike old one.
Despite what another reviewer said, my dinner plates(several different) fit nicely. Just think about it, who would market a oven just a bit too small for the regular size plates and throwing away thousands of would be buyers?
I haven't tried the preset settings(8 of them) nor variable power level, so I can only speak for straight set the time and start function. It heats much faster than old one and I found out old one had only 400watts, so it makes sense. It has the repeatablity of digital input which I had to guess on the old one(manual dial).
I haven't found difficulties of interface like some say but found some misinformation in the instruction such as when you set a clock, you push 0-3-1-5 to set it 3:15 but instruction says 3-1-5. So you should keep in mind that the instruction is not perfect.
You get a lot of flexibility with this but comes with a price, you have to spend some time to figure it out just like all digital gadgets you buy these days. If you are not one those people likes to figure things out, it also offers easier way but not as flexible way too.
Last, the turntable is a nice feature but you'll get it always no matter which brand you buy these days. My old one didn't have it, so I like this feature.
Durability is yet to be seen but considering the number of moving parts it uses which is close to zero, this will probably last a long time.
I'm very happy witht the purchase.

a little too small

Model Number: EM-S2589S
"This microwave works great and looks nice. However, it is a little too small. A normal sized dinner plate will not fit in it. I plan to return it for a larger model but I still want a Sanyo."

perfect size

Pros: small size, price, stainless steel look on front
Cons: beep sound a little loud
"I have been looking for a small counter top microwave or months. We don't have much counter space and needed something that would fit a ten inch Fiestaware dinner plate. Nothing tells you what size plate will fit inside! This is the perfect size. The beep it makes is a little loud, but it takes up so little space I can't complain."
