Are you sure it's not a DAB radio?

apologies for the incorrect key words! i did not realise i had put them, Lets not let this distract us from the fact that this incredible piece of kit is on sale at £55

Found earlier in the year at an incredible £30 but still at this price of £55 it seems much cheaper than anywhere else.

What's a category 3 microwave?

I also failing to see whats so amazing about this its only 17 litres capacity. I just bought a 25 litre capacity stainless steel one from Costco for £60 last month which seems better to me

If you've bought a category 2 or 3 then I'm afraid you may have over spent, also with it being a 25 litre you are actually losing microwave quality and may find that it takes longer to defrost frozen foods than it would with the 17 litre.

thanks for your comment though

Usually £74 where?

£55 for a 17l 700w won't see them fly off the shelves.

You still haven't explained whats a category 3 microwave?

My microwave works fine thanks 17 litres I can't fit what I need to inside it, but that's my concern not yours.

I really want to understand what the category 3 is I've never heard this term used in microwaves before please do explain.

Also I still don't understand why this is such a great deal you've not said what's so great about it.

Not to contradict a qualified Microwave Technitian, but don't you mean Category C?
'Usually twice the price'. You reckon going rate for 700w is £110?
Terminology aside, do they even sell Cat B 650w microwaves now?
And normally costs £74 where? Not at ASDA.

This model usually sells for £60-£65. It's sold as low as £50 previously.

If that's your idea of a dream device, but you are joking aren't you?
I'm not a Technit but no one when see one.

This is the microwave dreams are made of. Ping.

So can anyone enlighten me what the heck is category 3? Is this something I should be looking at when purchasing any future microwaves or not, seeing as op seems to have disappeared from the thread!

Do Panasonic meet the hallowed Category 3 requirements? Whatever they may be....I bought a Panny Combination Microwave (the cheaper ones that have the halogen element which also does oven and grill) and it was a flippin' nightmare. Returned three of them before I gave up...apparently those are China-made. Left a scathing review on Amazon as well.

Went for a "Premium" Panasonic Combi (32L - does that mean it's really, really inefficient?) in the end..not sure where those are manufactured..fingers crossed, it's still going....

Also, I have some experience of a Russell Hobbs microwave - my sister got this one from Amazon Warehouse for £11.71, 20L, 800W. It's quite noisy but she seems happy with it otherwise.

From having had a tiny 23L (if I remember right) microwave for preceding years, it's difficult to get things like soup cartons and "taller" items in there, and it becomes a bit of a pain. 17L is for Lilliputians.

Do you not have Google where you live? :-)

I'm not finding much either. I think it's best to remember that some people communicate on HUKD via phones and tablets and can't always do thorough searches like those who have a PC/keyboard/mouse/desk set-up and/or typing skills.

Not sure what it means, really. Maybe the technician could explain it to us.

Also, from seeing my sister's Russell Hobbs Microwave, I wouldn't call it a premium item at all - if Category 3 is meant to imply it's manufactured to a superior standard - it's pretty middle-of-the-road and gets mixed reviews on Amazon.

pwned

This is still available. There seems to be an ongoing trend for HUKDers to sulk and Expire their threads when things go awry...well, that's an assumption on my part, because the microwave itself is still on the Asda site at the same price and adding to basket?

I do indeed but when Google searches throw up nothing that I can make sense of best to ask the person who first mentioned it plus they're a microwave technician apparently so should be able to inform us. Looks like someone was telling porkies now doesn't it
