Sometimes the 700 watts of cooking power doesn’t seem adequate to reheat the cold food straight out of the refrigerator. It will take certainly longer for a 700 watts unit than a 1100 high powered one.
The automatic defrost function is not as accurate as other high-power bigger units
But, overall, this is a nice little microwave that does the thing without compromising too much on features.
