Why is it a good deal?

Not only is this microwave a time-saver, it's also a sleek piece of kitchen decor that'll take your counter from "meh" to mega-chic. Appliances this pretty often come with high price tags, and in spite of it being under $100, this little cooker looks like it could retail for twice as much. It also includes a limited one-year warranty, and because we've only seen it on sale for lower than its current price once this year, our recommendation would be to snag it while you can still save.

Why do I need this?

If you already have a microwave, you know how much easier they make preparing meals — especially on weeknights when you're too tired to cook from scratch. And if your old one could use an upgrade, this adorable Comfee microwave would make the most stylish replacement.

The first thing you'll notice is its throwback-inspired design, which has the charm of a 1950s model, only updated. After all, how many microwaves from back then had a 30-second express cooking button and pre-programmed settings for popcorn, potatoes, pizza, frozen vegetables, soup, meat and pasta? The retro style comes in three colors: apricot, teal and red, and the hardest decision you'll have to make is choosing between them. (Apricot is currently the only color on sale.)

As far as cooking goes, it has 10 power settings, and its 700 watts is sufficient for most reheating needs. Given its petite dimensions (17.3"x13"x10.2"), you won't be using this to defrost your Thanksgiving turkey, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in spacial efficiency. Small kitchen dwellers, rejoice! Plus, it should be able to hold a dinner plate just fine.

Its coolest feature is arguably the mute function, which, if you can't stand beeping, is an absolute game-changer. There's also a child safety lock, interior light and removable glass turntable that's a cinch to clean.

What reviewers say

Over 15,000 Amazon customers were so enamored of this Comfee Microwave Oven, they thought it deserved a perfect rating.

"This is a very attractive little microwave, perfect for small spaces," gushed a five-star reviewer. "It has a number of features, but my favorite is the mute button, allowing you to turn off all beeps. I LOVE this! Unnecessary beeping has always irritated me, and until recently, I never knew beep-less microwaves were a thing. I'll never go back now!"

"Love the color and the features," wrote another happy shopper. "The one thing I really like is, on the defrost cycle, it doesn't start cooking the meat on the edges. You put in the weight and it defrosts perfectly. I'm really happy with it."

"We love this space-saving microwave oven," raved a final fan. "Counter space is at a premium in our kitchen, so its smaller footprint leaves room for other kitchen essentials. Still, it’s plenty big enough inside to hold a full-size dinner plate and our tallest coffee mugs. ... The 1-push 30-second button is the BEST! So quick and convenient for adding extra time or doing a fast reheat. Programming correctly does require a quick look at the owner's manual, but it’s not difficult. While this microwave isn’t quite as powerful as our older 900-watt unit, it’s plenty fast enough, and it’s absolutely an A+ for adorableness."

And if you're in the market for something a bit more contemporary, this No. 1 bestselling Toshiba Microwave Oven is a great bet — and also on sale!

With a roomy 1.2 cubic feet of interior space, powerful 1,100 wattage and a slew of one-touch presets, it's no wonder this popular appliance has over 36,000 fans! Get it in silver or black.
