Panasonic receives high praise in particular for the NN-SD377S compact microwave. This model offers more cooking presets than most microwaves available, including settings for popcorn, oatmeal, beverages and even breakfast sausage. Top Ten Reviews also praises the machine’s interior size and ease of use, while noting that its control dial might take some getting used to.
Haier is another brand that gets strong reviews for its MWM0701T compact microwave. Top Ten Reviews notes that the appliance’s size makes it a practical choice for apartments, dorm rooms or any other cramped kitchen space. While the device’s interface is not the most intuitive, Haier still ranks as a top choice for compact microwaves.
Amana also ranks as a top compact microwave manufacturer, with its AMC1070XB receiving high marks. Top Ten Reviews praises the machine’s small size, array of presets and range of power settings. The AMC1070XB is also notable for its unique five-tone notification system, which emits different beeps depending on the machine’s function. This system can notify users when the machine needs attention, such as during multistage cooking processes.
