OK, so I have to go down the hill today anyway, so I stop at Sharper image and pick one of these up.

Actually, it was the ONLY one to pick up, they are discontinued and all that is left is black ones, even in the stores. I got this stores last one, so go order quickly if you want one. At least, that is what the clerk told me their computer said.

It is very small, but does exactly what I want it to. Small dinners and popcorn + reheat coffee etc. It will fit under my sink to stow and I can set it on the counter with one hand when needed. Or on top of one stove burner. I have a partial cover just for that.

It has a small fan, but isn't too noisy. It heated a budget gourmet in 5 mins, even tho the instructions say it won't cook thoroughly frozen stuff.

It seems OK for heat out the back, I actually didn't feel any. It has a LED inside so there is some light. It has a metal cooking rack that they instruct you to make popcorn on, however, my Daddy told me to never put metal in a microwave..so, er, I am not going to. (I wonder what THAT is all about?)

These give you an idea of the size

I went to Wally World after and it is hard to see ones 4 times as large for 1/4 of the price, but this is almost custom made for a small trailer and to me seemed worth the extra cost to avoid the dedicated space for one (And not to mention the weight)

For those masses with 17 foot Burros...

it fits perfectly in the closet/pantry next to the sink. Almost like it was measured for there.

I have mine stored in there right now, but will wire in an outlet and do a cut out up front for the ventilation issue. I am not allowed to lift or do manual labor stuff right now, so it will have to wait.. but it is usable where it is with plugging it into the outlet closest to it and leaving the door open when in use.

I am really tickled it fits there. Good accident!

I don't recall from the earlier posts, does the ICube have a turntable? I fondly remember my dorm room Sharp HalfPint, its a darn shame they quit making those! hehe

No, there is no turntable. It really isn't intended for typical nuker cooking. It's a glorified heater upper is all. Soups, small prepared meals, popcorn, stuff like that. I think a fully popped bag of popcorn is about the biggest thing you could fit in it.

I haven't tried popcorn in it yet, I am still scratching my head over the metal "Cooking Rack".

Gina, it's really not all that uncommon for new(er) microwaves to make use of metal. I've had 3-4 microwaves over the past 20 years and all but one had some sort of metal rack. In fact, I have a microwave cookbook that shows how to use aluminum foil over drumstick (legs) to keep them from overcooking.

I have had the the same microwave in my house for 10 years so I haven't kept up.

It ain't broke, what the hey.

Overall it sounds like a handy little machine Gina. I agree with some earlier sentiments as well, that I'm surprised the micro manufacturers don't make more of the small models like this. I know the little Sharp HalfPint was perfect for RV use as well as dorms and such, as is this little guy. I wonder if some kind of legal thing occurred, one blew up on somebody or something...? Who knows... Well keep us up to date on how it works for you, Gina & other new owners!

I found a little Microwave for the Scamp at Home Depot of all places?

It is Stainless Steel and is a G.E. with a turntable. It looks to be about twice the size of this tiny one but is still very small.
It was around $50.00 and I was amazed at how nice it is for the size and price.

If it ever stops storming here I will get a few pics of it.
