Just what I wanted, but add £2.95 for standard delivery if you don't live near enough for free click and collect to be practical.
Smoooking

Can't tell if it's a combi fan oven or not. If it's only microwave and grill then it's a pass for me. Hot anyway though!
Just be careful not to place it near a window. I put my beans in the other day, and a bird fell dead from a nearby tree.

Hot deal. But be aware of some reviews on amazon saying that it's very loud and not very strong for a 800 watt oven.
Voted hot
It was around this price on Amazon about 5 days back. I was going to order it but needed to go out, so I thought when I get back in 30 minutes I will order it then. In that time it was put up to £74-00. I couldn't believe it. Anyhow in the end I went for a different make.
Thanks OP

I have this and it is a great microwave, and yes there is a combi function.
Was exactly the same price to the penny two weeks ago on amazon with free next day delivery. I bought one
Is it an inverter microwave? I have one and things do seem to taste better than conventional microwave. If not, you can pick up used£200+ panasonic inverter microwaves on ebay for £50 or less.

If the inverter unit goes like mine did, either get the seller to repair it as they sold an item not fit for use or buy the inverter for £40 and repair it yourself following online guides, alot of brands use the same inverter part. But yeah hot deal for new decent brand microwave.

No, it's not, it's a £50 microwave for people who want to spend around £50 and get much better quality than plastic tat on sale at Asda. It's very solid and fits in well with the rest of my aluminum kitchen stuff, recommended.
All inverters do is allow the microwave's magnetron to work at reduced power, whereas normal microwaves just turn the magnetron on and off for reduced heating.

So unless you have a big need for heating things at less than the rated power of your microwave an inverter microwave will do nothing other than increase the cost of your microwave oven.

Well said. Mine arrived yesterday and its excellent for a £50 microwave, be stupid to spend more as I only use it for packets of rice, defrosting and softening butter from the fridge. Slightly bemused by the metal tripod it comes with which appears to be for raising the glass plate nearer the grill.

No it's not for the plate. Place the tripod on top of the glass and you can toast things. Bread, bacon, etc. You need the glass plate under it so it can rotate the tripod to cook evenly. Does wonderfully nice even toast better than the toaster! Then slap some cheese in for another go and you've done away with having to wait for your oven to heat up.

The grill is really handy if you want to cook something like a chicken. Once it's cooked right through you can then switch to either a mix of microwave and grill, or just grill to crisp it up. It's safe to use the tripod with microwaves, metal is actually fine in the microwave as long as it doesn't have any harsh edges for electrons to bounce off of.

I'm in to mug pies and mug cakes like you wouldn't believe! Really nice food in literally seconds with no effort.

Thanks. I guess you just need to be careful not to use a microwave setting when the metal tripod is inside!

No, you're absolutely fine to use it with the microwave on. Any smooth metal is fine in a microwave, it's metal with corners and angles which doesn't sit well as electrons fly off the edges.
Shame it's Appliances Direct - absolute dog of a company in my experience.

Woe betide having to return an item
