Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst microwave ever! Don't buy this!We have had issues with this microwave not starting since a year after we purchased it. The repairman replaced a part, but a year and a half later, the same issue again! The door will not close properly enough unless you SLAM it multiple times. Now it won't work unless my husband presses against the door and pulls downward. I have zero respect for Bosch and will never buy their products again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my BOSCH built in microwave!We have had our BOSCH microwave for 9 months now and we are VERY happy with our purchase. When we were shopping for a new one we were very careful. The store owner HIGHLY recommended this particular Bosch. He said that he sells many, may of these models and he rarely, if ever, gets any complaints about them. We use the microwave almost daily and really appreciate the SENSOR RE-HEAT feature as well as the crazy fast SENSOR DEFROST. Also, the price was very reasonable for other similar microwaves and it looks GREAT, MODERN and STYLISH!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Less than a six year lifeOur HMB5051 is less than six years old and now no longer works. We'll have to determine why it no longer heats, but for such an expensive microwave it is a bit disappointing that it suddenly no longer works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible product with latent defectLike many others, I purchased this microwave based on the perceived notation that Bosch made quality products. I have since found out that Bosch does not actually make any microwaves, but sub-contracts the production. That being said, Bosch knows or should know that there is a latent defect with the door mechanism. I have just had my 2nd replacement installed for almost $700 (my dealers cost), Luckily, I found out about the poor quality and customer service because my wife and I have a retirement home that needs a kitchen make over. There will be NO Bosch appliances in it.
