This device has the smallest volume (17 liters) and a turntable (24.5 cm) of the tested microwaves, but has a small footprint of only 46 cm wide and 29 cm deep.
In addition, you can either sit it on the countertop or mount it on the underside of a kitchen wall cupboard to make room for the preparation of work surfaces for food preparation. It is therefore a good buy when space is tight.
Although it does not fit into a large dining plate, it makes the microwave basics good. It has five power levels (800W, 600W, 360W, 180W and 90W) and has separate buttons on the front panel so you can immediately choose any power. You can cook by weight or time (up to 60 minutes) with the pop-up button above.
Features include a small number of built-in programs, a memory button for your favorite settings, and a kitchen timer.
We liked the space-saving design of Bosch and its simplicity. For some microwaves you need to read and save a manual. This is straightforward. It is simple but of good quality, exterior with brushed stainless steel. Note, however, that the interior is white.
