Q & As

Bosch HMT72M450B Microwave Oven, Brushed Steel 4.1 5 33 33
Ok but... Had this microwave for 3 years. Worked perfectly, no loud noises and no faults. Unplugged it for a week (away on holiday) and now doesn't work at all. Replaced the fuse and still nothing. Contacted Bosch UK twice but no reply. Unless JL can offer any advice I won't be buying Bosch again. 15 October 2014
Basic microwave I bought this for my elderly father as I thought it looked easy to use. He finds it quite difficult to operate the knobs, but it looks fine to me! 11 March 2014
Packed up after 3 years - not the only example to do so Very pleased when we acquired this Bosch microwave oven in January 2010. Not unattractive; simple to operate; did reasonable job on the basics of defrosting, reheating and basic cooking. However, and we are clearly not alone in this, it failed completely after three years and three months in a potentially dangerous fashion - complete failure of the controls, so that, as soon as power is connected to the unit, it comes on at full power and cannot be switched off, other than by unplugging or switching off the mains power supply to the unit. I expect this would eventually cause it to overheat, although I did not let it run long enough to find out! Would strongly advise against purchase and, as this website contains several reports of this dangerous fault, would expect Bosch or John Lewis to start a product recall and.or remove it from sale. 20 April 2013
Good basic model, but rotary controls are difficult to use I bought this for my elderly mother, who needed a replacement for her basic, easy to use microwave. It is very easy to use and seems to heat well. However we did not notice unitl it was unpacked that the control knobs are very difficult to turn, and particularly the timer control as it is quite stiff and the surface is very smooth. We have had to put an elastic band round the control knob so that my mother can use it as she now has difficulty with her hands. 12 February 2013
looks good This microwave is very straight forward to use it also looks good and doesn't take up too much space! 11 January 2013
simple but maybe too much so! although I agree about the simplicity of design I did not stop to think enough about the fact that trying to turn the dial to the required time along with the lack of digital display are a real pain. In fact I would say that trying to differentiate between a full minute and 30 seconds is nigh on impossible - and if my hands are remotely oiley or damp I find it really difficult to turn the knob at all. If you are after a really simple design where you can heat for over a minute maybe it's ok. I am personally kicking myself that I did not go for a direct replacement of our last Bosch microwave, which was also simple but had a digital display and was only a small extra cost. 08 January 2013
