iWaveCube microwave?

Anyone have first hand experiences?

http://www.iwavecube.com/product-p/iwc-wh.htm

Measures 10.5"W x 10"D x 12"H
Heating cavity is .3 cubic feet (8"W x 8"D x 6"H)
600 watts
12 lbs

I'm thinking it may fit in the upper closet cabinet between the bathroom and the exterior door of the Scamp 13'. I had them run an extra AC outlet into that closet.

I've read some folks are using old Sharp half pints; but I'm still looking around for those used.

I have a good working Half Pint in my loft, it is the original model, and I'd let it go for $30. If you are going to Hampton (Fall on the Mississippi) I could bring it for your approval. Or if you are coming across ILLannoy on I-80 anytime soon. We're At Exit 112.
It's a perfect fit and leaves room for a "medicine chest door behind it in the head for plenty of storage. look closely at the picture and you can see where we vented both the closet and the upper section with the microwave.
Here's what the newer model 1/2 pint looks like in that location...

My iwavecube

I have used an Iwavecube microwave for several years and really like it. It is small but big enough for the 2 of us. Heats a couple servings of food quickly. Fits on the counter and still leaves room for my coffee maker.
I give it 2 thumbs up.

Can you describe or post a picture of the iWaveCube interior? I can't tell from the web site what type of controls it has or where they are located.

Out of curiosity I looked up the Sharp Half Pint on Amazon. They are for sale for $160 and are virtually identical to the Iwave, obviously the same manufacturer. It's certainly a nice;y sized microwave solution.

The Half Pint is large enough [40% larger capacity than the Iwave] to accept a standard sized plate, and so it fits nearly everything which is "made for the Microwave"
14-3/8" x 14-1/4"with a 10-3/4" plate
the Iwave is considerably smaller...
10.5"W x 10"D x 12"H with an interior 8"W x 8"D x 6"H (No plate?)
Small is the point , so the Iwave wins on that count. TooSmall?...
Well that's like comparing a Scamp 13 to a Scamp16.
Each is a perfect fit for the right customer! I'm glad to see an actual choice on the market for a change.

iwavecube micro

the controls are on the top-with a handle also makes carrying easier.

the half pint and iwavecube are not the same-totally different.

don`t know how to post pictures-search iwavecube microwave--you will get their website.

iWave Cube

We love ours. Perfect for two people and takes up no space at all. It fits in the area where the microwave would of been.
Hope this helps, Carmen

You might want to hold out to find this kind of Sharp Half Pint: Sharp Half Pint Microwave Oven for sale on eBay - YouTube

We have this kind. It fits perfectly in our closet in the Uhaul and holds a pan. It has a flat top, so we can easily stack things on top of it too. I don't see any on ebay right now, but I have seen them.

The one pictured in your video is a first generation Half Pint. The one in my Scamp is a second generation.
The one in my Shop loft is like the one in your video.
The second generation Half Pint is about the same size, and the case has a flat top, sides, and bottom... only the door is convex.

Oh - that's the key problem with the iWaveCube = controls on top up by the handle won't work for my application. I want to place it in the closet and the top will not be easily accessible.

I'm kicking myself because I had a perfectly fine first generation half pint about 10 years ago that I got at a garage sale a block away for $10. Loaned it to a relative and it has since disappeared. Replacing it now will be much more costly and I really like the first gen controls - nice and simple and you don't need to open the door to use them.

Just about every second generation half pint seems to have the LCD readout fail in some way from the descriptions I'm seeing on craigslist.

I just don't see the advantages of these small microwaves for the price difference. I have a small micro that cost $30 from Wally and it is plenty small enough to fit on the stove or sink area and have room for other stuff.

I think the point is that some of us don't want the microwave sitting on the stove or sink area all the time.

We want it mounted snugly off the counter top in a closet sized cubby hole.
