Multiple reviews mentioned that Magic Chef MCM1611ST has terrific user reviews with 100% of buyers recommending this microwave to others.

8 Reasons For for Choosing the Magic Chef MCM1611ST

Child Lock

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has a child lock (as do the LG NeoChef and the Panasonic NNSN736B), however the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not have this feature. More ...

'Child Lock' denotes whether the microwave has a child lock, which stops kids and prying fingers from accidentally operating the appliance when you're not around.

This is very helpful, since it reduces the chance of an accident hurting your child.

Six More Power Levels

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST is an 11 power level microwave, whereas the LG NeoChef only has five power levels and the Panasonic NNSN736B only has 10 power levels. More ...

We do not know the number of power levels on the Sharp SMC1131CB or the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ. It is possible that they do not have any power levels.

'Power Level' denotes how many different power levels the microwave has - these usually range from very low to extremely high.

More power levels mean that the appliance is more versatile, and can reach the exact power/heat level needed for the cooking task at hand, rather than having to settle for one too low or too high.

Convection Cooking

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has a convection cooking (as does the Panasonic NNSN736B), however the LG NeoChef, the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not have this feature. More ...

'Convection Cooking' denotes whether the microwave oven is capable of convection cooking or not. This is a special mode that uses both the microwave and the oven at once.

Convection cooking uses the microwave power to cook the food quickly, and the oven power to keep the food crisp and brown. This leads to the optimal results for dishes such as pies, bakes or jacket potatoes.

Better Kagoo Score

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the LG NeoChef scored 86, the Panasonic NNSN736B scored 86, the Sharp SMC1131CB scored 84 and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ scored 88.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this microwave and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

15 Months Newer

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST was released 15 months later than the LG NeoChef, released two years later than the Panasonic NNSN736B, released 21 months later than the Sharp SMC1131CB and released 16 months later than the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ

User Reviews Are Better

Based on 3 user reviews, the average review score of the Magic Chef MCM1611ST is 100%, however the average rating of the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ is 91% (based on 42 reviews).

Better Brand

Magic Chef microwaves have an average rating of 93.1%, whereas LG only has an average rating of 72.9%, Panasonic only has an average rating of 90.8%, Sharp only has an average rating of 80.2% and Whirlpool only has an average rating of 73.1%.

3 Reasons Against for Choosing the Magic Chef MCM1611ST

Smaller Interior Capacity

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST has an interior capacity of 45.3L. That's 22.3L bigger than the LG NeoChef (23L), 0.3L bigger than the Panasonic NNSN736B (45L), 8.3L bigger than the Sharp SMC1131CB (37L) and 2.7L smaller than the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ (48L). More ...

'Interior Capacity' is how much the microwave can hold, measured in litres (L).

A bigger capacity means that the microwave is capable of holding - and therefore cooking - more food at once.

$53 More Expensive

The Magic Chef MCM1611ST is more expensive than the LG NeoChef by $39, more expensive than the Panasonic NNSN736B by $11, more expensive than the Sharp SMC1131CB by $19 and more expensive than the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ by $53.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 10%

The running costs of the Magic Chef MCM1611ST are $411 which is $37 more than the Sharp SMC1131CB and $37 more than the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ over five years. Show assumptions.

The cheapest price that we could find for the MCM1611ST in the US is $128.74 and in total we found 8 prices for it.

2 Reasons For for Choosing the LG NeoChef

Child Lock

The LG NeoChef has a child lock, and so do the Magic Chef MCM1611ST and the Panasonic NNSN736B, but the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not. More ...

Grill

5 Reasons For for Choosing the Panasonic NNSN736B

Child Lock

The Panasonic NNSN736B has a child lock, and so do the LG NeoChef and the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, but the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not. More ...

'Child Lock' denotes whether the microwave has a child lock, which stops kids and prying fingers from accidentally operating the appliance when you're not around.

This is very helpful, since it reduces the chance of an accident hurting your child.

Delayed Start Timer

The Panasonic NNSN736B has a delayed start timer, however the LG NeoChef, the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not have this feature. More ...

'Delayed Start Timer' indicates whether the microwave has the ability to schedule cooking to start after a certain time interval (30 mins, 3 hours, etc).

Delayed start allows you to plan when your cooking starts and finishes, allowing you to plan the cooking around your agenda.

Weight Sensor

The Panasonic NNSN736B has a weight sensor, but the LG NeoChef, the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not have this feature. More ...

'Weight Sensor' denotes whether the microwave has the ability to detect how much the food placed inside it weighs.

Weight sensors are mainly used with the auto-cooking programs: they allow the microwave to detect how much the food weighs, in order to properly calculate cooking times.

Keep Warm Function

The Panasonic NNSN736B has a keep warm function, however the LG NeoChef, the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not have this feature. More ...

'Keep Warm Function' indicates whether the microwave comes with a special low-power function, aimed at keeping food warm without cooking it further.

A keep warm function is very helpful, since it allows you to cook food ahead of schedule and keep it at an acceptable temperature until it's ready to be used.

Convection Cooking

The Panasonic NNSN736B has a convection cooking, and so does the Magic Chef MCM1611ST, but the LG NeoChef, the Sharp SMC1131CB and the Whirlpool WMH31017HZ do not. More ...

'Convection Cooking' denotes whether the microwave oven is capable of convection cooking or not. This is a special mode that uses both the microwave and the oven at once.

Convection cooking uses the microwave power to cook the food quickly, and the oven power to keep the food crisp and brown. This leads to the optimal results for dishes such as pies, bakes or jacket potatoes.
