Akai A24005 Freestanding Microwave - Black

Excellent value microwave. The Akai A24005 makes cooking your favourite microwavable meals super easy and really quick. Its 20 litre capacity and 24.5 cm turntable are large enough to comfortably fit in your dinner plates and the 60 minute digital timer will let you know exactly how long is left for cooking. There’s a defrost setting too that’ll thaw out chicken and other frozen food quicker than on the side alone. It’ll give you the benefit of having it ready to throw in the pan without the long wait you usually have to go through.

Product Reviews

"Does the job"

Pros: Value for money, Good build quality, looks good

Cons: Complicated, Noisy

"The Akai microwave is well built and looks great.

However, it is of low power and takes longer to re-heat so more energy consumption. It does however, do the job."

"Stylish but small"

Pros: Easy to use, looks good

Cons: Expensive, small internal capacity

"This microwave looks good but is quite small internally. It fits an average dinner plate in but doesn't have much height so we struggle to get the baby steriliser in. It's also fairly low power so takes a lot longer to heat things than our old microwave. Overall it seems fit for purpose."

"Basic microwave"

Pros: looks good

Cons: Complicated

"Only 700watt so it doesn't heat as fast or as much as others on the market, looks attractive, cleans easy, dial a bit complicated, I've never had a microwave I've actually had to look at the instruction book to use, until this one.... It's simple enough for a quick start but using the dial brings up a lot of pictures to choose from some of which I had no idea what they were... Looks more complicated than necessary in my opinion"
