My microwave is the basic version, I have to...wait for it...turn a dial, not even digital control shock horror lol
i mean it must be nice if you have a large family to be able to set your crock pot in the morning then turn it on and monitor it from your phone. sure thats pretty cool.

i dont understand.
so it has an alexa button on the bottom front of it.
AmazonBasics Microwave simplifies cooking by letting you microwave using your voice and an Echo device. Just say, “Alexa, reheat one cup of coffee,”
When pressed, there’s no need to say “Alexa” or “microwave.” To start cooking, use your voice or just press the Ask Alexa button and say your cook time. The button will instantly wake up your paired Echo, just like saying “Alexa” does.
seems #ing stupid to me.
i mean it does have an auto reorder function for popcorn so that is nice.
so you have to put your coffee in the microwave. like with your hands
then instead of pressing the correct time and then start you press the alexa button and say the time.
you have already opened the door. already placed food in. already closed door.
instead of pressing the alexa button and speaking the time why not just go that extra mile and you know, push a couple buttons.
