This microwave is just what we wanted.

published

This microwave replaces a whirlpool microwave that we had more than 20 years. The crispy function is great and the new functions are very good. It is perfect for what we need.

Exciting options

published

Have had our Arista Microwave for a few weeks now, still learning about all the great options available, love the crisp pan cooking, a great timesaver. Compared to my previous microwave, the Arista seems to cook the food more evenly. Loving it!

Awesome product - can’t live without it !

published

I had been using the whirlpool convention microwave for the past 10 years until it died on me :-(
I was recommended to be Ariston MWA25B microwave and purchased it at a great price compare to other brands offered in store !
I have not regretted it one bit as I love all it’s features - my favourite been the dynamic crisp, chef menu and reheat function :-)
This microwave is sleek, convenient, quick and easy to use and most importantly it cooks to perfection !
I highly recommend this microwave ( especially to busy parents ) and can guarantee that you will not be disappointed !

Stylish microwave - fits in perfectly with my new white/brushed steel kitchen. Only had a short while but the crisp, steam and defrost functions work a treat. Looking forward to experimenting with all the Chef Plus cooking functions and recipes.

Looks great on the counter and very easy to use. Enjoy the grill feature and the easy of the control panel. Still experimenting and the kids love heating stuff up after school might have over done some things as we are learning but look forward to mastering it.

Gotta use it to believe !

published

I live underground and cooking can be problematic due to heat produced from cooking. The very helpful sales assistant from Harvey Norman Gepps Cross pointed this out after some indecision about purchasing a normal microwave. What an amazing machine ! Food tastes like it came out of the oven, cooked and crispy. I could not be more happy. Doesn't heat up the house as it is only on for 3 minutes (muffins), 8 minutes (Frozen crumbed fish and wedges), or 6 minutes (pizza).

Fantastic does everything I want it to

published

I purchased this microwave to replace my whirlpool crisp microwave after it stopped working. I love the way it crips and heats at the same time in far less time it takes in the oven. I wouldn't be without it and so far have no issues with anything. Programming features are easy to follow and it is just a push of a botton and off it goes. Couldn't be happier.

The Ariston MWA25B has a pleasing good look and a reasonable price tag to match. It has practical and easy to use features making cooking and reheating a breeze. Size is not too big for a small kitchen.

A great replacement Microwave

This is a very nice appliance and it works so well, I like the menu controls and the grill is excellent even with food on the bottom plate, the crisping dish is excellent also.
All up this is really good value and it is making my time in the kitchen enjoyable once again.

great microwave with one small problem.

published

love this microwave. We use it to cook fried eggs.. yes fried eggs as it has a crisper plate. It works perfectly, and does indeed make pastry crispy, and reheating pizza.. YUM
The one problem i have with it is after something is finished cooking or heating, instead of turning off, it will continue going around and dinging the bell for ten straight minutes. For just heating up a cuppa, or cooking some chicken legs for the dog, (which takes 7 minutes) and then to have it dinging and still going around is super annoying.
other thank that, its a great appliance, and good value for money

Love this microwave!!!!

published

I did not believe that a microwave could cook pastries in microwave time with oven results but its true! The kids love it because its so quick and easy. Only 8 minutes on the crisping function for perfectly crisp potato wedges!
I have only had it for a few weeks but its quickly become my favorite appliance. Love this microwave!!!!

Questions & Answers

Lothar P.

Lothar P.asked

MWA25B
When the time is up it says End but the light stays on and the table keeps turning.
I would have thought that it should stop altogether at the end.
Is this incorrect?

1 answer
Ariston
Anthony F.Ariston

Hi Lothar,
This is normal. It is an added feature that allows the food to turn with the fan on constantly to prevent un-even cooking in the food while the oven cavity is still warm. A signal will beep once a minute for 10 minutes when the cooking is finished. Press the STOP button or open the door to cancel the signal.

John S.asked

1. If you leave the door open, does the internal lamp turn itself off automatically after a few minutes?
2. When the door is open, can the internal lamp be manually turned off by pressing a button (eg. Stop)?
3. Is the clock 12-hour or 24-hour?

Thank you

Anthony F.Ariston

Hi John,
1. The lamp turns itself automatically after about 15 minutes.
2. The internal lamp cannot be turned off manually while the door is open.
3. This microwave has a 24-hour clock.

Had a play with a display model today and found pressing the stop button while the door is open does in fact turn the lamp off, just like my previous Whirlpool. I've been using this feature for the last 10 years to avoid wasting electricity and shortening the bulb's lifespan when leaving the door open to ventilate after 15+ minutes of cooking, as I don't like closing the door and sealing in moisture.

Though I was a bit disappointed to find there is no way to quickly start a 15 minute microwave cook. It seems we have to press Microwave -> OK -> hold the plus button for a LONG time until 15 minutes is accumulated -> OK.

It seems this could be worked around with the Favourite button though, however it only stores 1 memory preset! Sometimes I need to do 18 minutes, sometimes 15, and I neglected to test if I can quickly add or remove a few minutes to the stored Favourite.

Apart from this it seems to meet all my needs and may still purchase it anyway :)

Which setting is used to preheat the crisp plate?

1 answer
Ariston
Anthony F.Ariston

Hi Connie,
The preheat setting depends on the function being used. If you have a look at the user manual on the Ariston website it will let you know how to preheat the plate for the recipe you want.
