I purchased this oven to replace my original SpaceMaker II purchased in 1986 (it was still working, just time to update). The new Spacemaker has more wattage plus a turntable and cooks plenty fast. The digital controls are straight forward and intuitive, the express cook buttons are handy for quick re-heats. Overall this oven is much lighter built than the '86 model, lots of plastic (including the door catches. The door seems quite flimsy but so far no problems. It will be interesting where this oven is 26 years. I also had planned to use the under counter mounting kit from the 86 model (it didn't fit). The 2012 mounting kit is also light weight, obviously to match the light weight microwave. The installation process with the new kit is ridiculous. The brackets are screwed directly to the oven requiring it to be perfectly supported and aligned with your cabinet mounting holes. With the 86 kit the brackets are installed then the oven is hung on the brackets and then the brackets tightened up and secured...... a much better engineered bracket. Now that the unit is mounted and in operation I am very pleased with the oven's performance.
- I recommend this product.
