Oster OGZB1101-B 1.1 Cubic Foot Digital Microwave Oven Review


Pros & Cons:
Inexpensive and reliable, easy to use. Larger than expected, takes up a good deal of space.

The Oster OGZB1101-B 1.1 Cubic Foot Digital Microwave Oven is simplicity personified. It’s not one of these lavish model ovens with tens of features, bright lights and neon digital displays. But it does a good job handling whatever functions you would expect a microwave oven to do. Let’s take a look at some of the features and functions a bit closer so you can decide whether or not this machine will meet your requirements for a microwave you would purchase.

The Oster OGZB1101-B provides 1000 watts of cooking power and has ten adjustable power levels. It has six auto cooking and one touch menu options which are great for making frozen diners, popcorn, pizza, beverages, potatoes and reheating. Product dimensions are 21.8 x 17.8 x 12.2 inches. One of the unique and quite valuable features is the programmable child lock that keeps busy little hands from accessing the microwave.

It comes in black with silver trim finish. The options and settings panel is set on the right side of the microwave facing you, with the timer above the panel. It has a removable glass turntable and is built to North American Electrical Standards. Other Options on the control panel are “power”, “cook” and “timer” buttons. As well as “cook by weight”, “defrost by weight” and “speed defrost”. This is the type of microwave that can be used on a daily basis, it can stand up to the rigors of family mileage.

As previously stated it may not be as glamorous as some of the more expensive microwaves on the market, but its durable and reliable and that trumps glitz any time. The microwave also has a start plus thirty second button, which you guessed it, it adds thirty seconds of time to your programmed timer setting once you press this button.

It’s a nice little added feature that can come in handy for those of us who like to tweak things a bit. That said you can use it or not , nice to know you have it as an option. Well I think we’ve pretty much covered all aspects of this solid microwave from Oster. For the price it’s a solid value that should give the user many years of reliable service.
