The doorway is 17.5 x 27.5cm and is 26 cm deep. The glass turntable sits higher than the doorway at 1.2cm, so your height is reduced to 16.3cm.
Two sides and the top (inside) are hollowed out a little (I think this is to make the claim of 20L). I can't fit my rice cooker in with the lid on, so I put it on after the steamer is in the microwave, but trying to take the lid off after the cooking whilst still inside is a risky business.

Yes, you press the 'Microwave' button, then the minutes and seconds you want, and Start. If you kept pressing the Microwave button initially, you reduce the cooking power to the one you want, also.

Not too loud, at least I don't think so. But we are all different, so what is acceptable for one person isn't for another. I don't always stay in the kitchen while the microwave is cooking.

Once you have reached the point you have stated in the question, use the keypad to enter the weight of the product you are looking to defrost and then the microwave will automatically give you the correct defrost time when youm press start.

Re answer below, disagree with dimensions, H is 17.5cm, W is 27.5cm, D is 25.5cm. Still short of 20 litres. What now?

A. Hi, thank you for your question.

Having contacted a store who has measured the internal dimensions of this microwave, I can confirm the internal dimensions are H22cm, W31cm and D25.5cm. This means that the internal capacity is 17.39 litres. This issue will be reported and thoroughly checked.

Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this with the stores and I can confirm that the times of the auto programmes will be shown in 12 hour clock as none of them go over this time.
