The price of the EM925A5A is comparatively lower than other microwave models out there, which makes it that much more affordable. The compact size of this microwave measures at 19.2 L x 15.9 W x 11.5 H inches, meaning the EM925A5A will not take up too much space but will be a functional and ideal appliance for anyone to own.

This microwave oozes style, including a digital control panel with LED lighting. The EM925A5A-BS is also easy to open, with a grip-handle which adds further to its charm and ease of use. This microwave is undoubtedly one of the smaller models out there, but its smaller size makes it that much more appealing, not only on the eye but also for its suitability in a smaller space. The Toshiba EM925A5A is up there regarding design quality.
As one of the smaller microwaves on the market, the EM925A5A still provides more than enough power to heat up what you need. At 900 watts, this microwave will also help to reduce energy bills which is another bonus with this model. Toshiba hasn’t loaded this microwave with too many watts because it’s perfectly functional at 900w and more than capable of heating food quickly and efficiently.
The EM925A5A has ten power settings to choose from, so there’s plenty to suit all heating ranges. This is a similar number of power settings compared to microwaves in the higher-price category so it shows you do get value for money concerning cooking performance. One of the great features on Toshiba’s EM925A5A is the one touch start option, meaning you can quickly start the microwave by selecting the number of minutes you wish to cook the food. This can be added to at any time by pressing the start button to add on 30-second bursts, and it can stop at any time by pressing the stop button. This is a simplistic yet effective design in a nutshell and adds to the efficiency when cooking food using the EM925A5A. The one-touch start feature from the Toshiba EM925A5A is also pre-programmed for six different functions, so you can save time when cooking popcorn, frozen vegetables, drinks, potatoes, plates or pizza.

There has been some feedback that defrosting is weaker than other models of microwaves, but overall most customers say they have no problems with the cooking performance of the Toshiba EM925A5A and it’s a reliable piece of equipment.
Ease of Use
The great thing about the EM925A5A is that it’s so simple to use. Customers have rated it highly in this area, as most of all this microwave’s features are designed with the customer’s comfort in mind. There is a comfortable grip handle showcasing the quality of the materials used by Toshiba when creating this model and the feel of the buttons is high-quality too. Some customers have stated that sometimes the microwave does slide when the door opens, perhaps this is due to the fact the door is handle-operated as opposed to button-operated. But this is only minor when you consider the bigger picture. The buttons are clearly labeled and easy to read; it’s easy to clean while maintaining the quality finish, and it’s not an overly complicated microwave so even the most prone technophobes will simply love it for its simplicity. The Toshiba EM925A5A is also extremely portable, only weighing in at just over 27lbs, so this microwave can be moved from place to place with ease.
The Toshiba EM925A5A might be a lower-budget microwave, but it certainly doesn’t scrimp on its features. From modest but valuable features like displaying the time to the more complex like defrosting by weight or time, the EM925A5A has got it all. There is a child safety lock included, as well as a power saving mode too. Toshiba has thought of everything in terms of customer satisfaction with this microwave. The final feature to mention (save the best til last) is the quiet mode. The EM925A5A has the option of turning the sound on or off, so you can choose if you want the microwave to make the beep noise at the end. This is a great feature, especially for people who need to minimize noise in their homes but it’s worth noting this does reset every time the microwave turns on so does need silencing again if you do cut the power! The Toshiba EM925A5A has also been complimented on being quiet in its general use, which is another big bonus.
To sum up the Toshiba EM925A5A, it’s an excellent microwave and is fantastic value for money. There may not be the technological features of sensor options, but what it does have is everything you could need from a compact microwave from an excellent design to the reliability and quality you would expect from more expensive brands.
