Whirlpool AMW490/IX Built In Microwave - Stainless Steel

We love it. It’s in our Top 5! The AMW490/IX has some great technology inside to make microwave cooking quick and simple. The Jet Start function gives you 30 seconds of full power at the touch of a button- there’s no messing around with fiddly dials. Its clever Jet Defrost setting thaws food 7 times quicker than a normal microwave, plus it’s much more hygienic than leaving food on the kitchen counter. It’s really stylish too- thanks to its built in design it’ll blend nicely into your kitchen.

"Great looks"

Pros: Value for money, Easy to use, Good build quality, looks good

"was concerned when old m'wave died before new kitchen due, as whole layout will change but this one fits into the space perfectly, and looks great - rest of kitchen must catch up soon! It does make a noise but you can switch this off immediately. I have not had time to work out all the functions but if does everything I've needed so far...heating up, and cooking veg/custard etc. v tidy to clean and the removable table fits into dishwasher much better than before as it;'s a bit smaller. And it doesn't need any fixing, it just sits and the cable is plugged in. I had it in operation within minutes of arrival."

Pros: Easy to use

Cons: Noisy

"I had the previous model of this microwave that I found it to be good quality and decided to replace it with the same make. but I must say the previuos one was better built the only thing about the new one is it makes a lot of noise where the previous one didn't."

Whirlpool AMW490/IX Microwave Oven

With a black finish and a stainless steel trim, the Whirlpool AMW490/IX is a great choice for the style conscious. It’s built in too, so it’ll give your kitchen a professional and streamlined look. It’s really easy to use thanks to the simple buttons on the front that control the settings and the minute minder.

You get loads of functions to make cooking easier, like the Jet Start function. This automatically adds 30 seconds of full power to the timer at the press of a button, which is great if you just want to warm some soup at lunch time. It also has some clever technology called the 3D system. This makes sure that the microwaves are distributed evenly inside, so the milk in the bottom of your mug won’t be warmer than the milk at the top.

You’ve also got a Jet Defrost function. This thaws your food 7 times faster than a normal microwave, which is great if you’ve forgotten to take the chicken out of the freezer in the morning. There’s even a special setting for cooking frozen ready meals, just enter the weight and type of food and the microwave will work out the time for you.
