What our survey respondents say about Breville microwaves

Canstar Blue’s most recent microwave satisfaction survey sought the opinions of 745 New Zealanders; some of the comments from owners of Breville microwaves were as follows:

The microwave is everything that you need for a family microwave. It looks good and has very useful functions. It beeps five times when it finishes.
Fits well with the rest of furniture, easy to use, easy to clean. Buttons were very confusing to begin with.
Have many products from them, all work extremely well. Reheat seems to take a long time.  To be fair I still have to read the instructions, the microwave is a recent purchase.
It looks good, relatively easy to use, great smart defrost feature, great child lock. Only problem is that it is noisy.
I find it very easy to use and to clean which is most important. This model was to low power and not digital.  Not Breville’s fault just a bad purchase choice.
