Product Descriptions

The Toshiba EM131A5C microwave comes in two color variants: Stainless steel (EM131A5C-SS)  and Black stainless steel (EM131A5C-BS). Our white kitchen welcomed the stainless steel model with open arms as it blended in with the environment. The unit includes 20.5” x 17.1” x 12.8” and equip with a 12.4” turntable. Its interior space pegged 1.2 cubic feet, the highest we have seen so far amongst compact microwaves.

This microwave comes with six different pre-programmed settings that the user can opt to cook or reheat one of the most popular dishes. The microwave features touch buttons for all these options, and it also gives the user the possibility to choose between ten different power levels for custom settings.

To time what you’re cooking, just input the desired setting, and you’re good to go. Additionally, there is a sensor function which senses the type of food in the microwave. It then automatically adjusts the machine for optimal results. The sensor function in this unit is one of the best in the market.

The microwave comes with quick start buttons for the pre-programmed functions. Moreover, it also has a defrosting option for different sorts of dishes and foods. This microwave oven also has a sensor cooking option which leads to the automatic setting of power depending on the foods cooked.

The Toshiba EM131A5C’s light continues on even when the door is open. Instead of the annoying beep on most microwaves, you’ll find the signal on this unit mildly audible. Additionally, the unit is quiet when it’s in use.
