Bosch legacy continues with microwave oven. Bosch is known for quality appliances --- simple, yet powerful. Bosch is known for absolute quiet operation. Many times you don't even know that the appliance is working. Unfortunately, the microwave is noisier than expected. However, the exhaust is very effective. My smoke alarms used to go off frequently when I cook. Haven't set off the alarms since using Bosch.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
