Farberware Microwave with Air Fry, Grill & Convection

On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the best, this microwave hovers somewhere around a 1.

Man I never thought buying a new microwave would be so hard. Really makes me appreciate the one I have that is also a convection oven and a grill having top and bottom heating elements. But the 7 segment display numbers are losing segments. Tough to read the time.

I’d buy the same one if they still made it. Can’t find any with top and bottom grill elements, just top now. Bought a Farberware unit that was convection and had a top grill element and was an Air Fryer. Arrived yesterday. Just dropped it off at FedEx returning it today. What a stupid ass design.

No number keypad, there is a dial to turn and scroll increasing/decreasing the numbers (time/temperature), fine I can live with that. Wait. No I can’t. You can’t dial in 8:45. Your choices are 8:30 or 9:00. You can’t dial in 12:30. Your choices are 12:00 or 13:00. You can’t dial n 42:30. Your choices are 40:00 or 45:00. Etc. And microwaving is loud. Louder then my previous microwave.

And the Air Fryer. You can’t set its temperature. You get 425F. Period. You can’t set the time either. You get 12, 18, 20, or 22 minutes.

I didn’t brother to check out the Convection or Grill functions. Wouldn’t surprise me if it had temperature constraints and the same time setting constraints the microwave function has.

And no warranty card. No website mentioned in the manual for questions or support. And no mention of who manufactures it either, that would at least be a starting point.
