My Review of the Iwave Cube Microwave!

   You know it takes a lot to get this ole grandma excited these days but let me tell you when I came home from therapy and found a box from UPS waiting on my front porch I was surprised because I knew I had not ordered anything.

Well to say I was surprised is an understatement. It was from  Iwave Cube. They make the new paradigm in small microwaves.  They are famous for their mini microwaves and they sent me one to review and maybe in the near future do a giveaway for them too.  Now that would get even an ole woman excited ...I mean really who doesn't love to own something as cute and handy as this microwave.

This innovative, cute little microwave is popping up in households across the country. In addition to its widespread popularity among consumers, the iWavecube has made numerous appearances on talk shows and has been recognized by many popular national and regional magazines. I recently saw it on a blog for a giveaway and entered.  What better way to get the word out but through our wonderful blogging world.

The Iwave Cube  is the smallest microwave on the market today with a footprint of but 10.5 inches high, 10 inches deep, and 12 inches wide. Additionally it weighs an amazingly low 12 pounds. A fold away handle on the top of the unit allows the unit to be easily carried. 

I like that on the top of my unit are the classic tactile buttons of start, pause, stop, etc. with timing keys of 10 seconds, 1 minute, and 5 minutes. Additionally there are also preset times for heating your coffee, hot sandwich, popcorn, soup and gel packs

These cute as button microwaves come in many colors such as silver, red, black and white. They sent me the black and I love it.  As you know for a while now I have been trying to move my office upstairs so now I can put this cutie upstairs where I don't have to carry my hot cocoa or soups up the stairs to enjoy while writing you. 

My girlfriend saw it and went online to order her one for her camper. I know it is popular for that use as well and wouldn't it be great to have this for heating baby bottles in the middle of the night upstairs instead of having to run downstairs to do everything. I am showing this to my son who has a really nice game room upstairs with a mini fridge he can put this little microwave on top of his fridge and my darling Kaci and Bailey can heat up their hot chocolate that they love so much.

So far I have used it for heating up popcorn, soup, hot chocolate and breakfast tacos and I found it heats every bit as well as my big microwave in the kitchen. I would actually love to have one for my tiny kitchen too because you know I have no cabinet space. 

I hope Iwave does send me another one so I can share one with you in a giveaway because I truly do love mine I mean I really It is a small powerful lightweight and versatile microwave. If you can stop by their site and read more about this unit. 

Hope you have a fantastic weekend. Thanks for stopping by and reading about Iwave Cube and thanks Iwave for giving me such a lovely surprise in the mail. It is great and I will enjoy using it for years to come.

Be sure and leave me a comment so Iwave will know how many would love to win one of these wonderful microwaves.

I know that it is warming up in most areas so maybe you can plant a few flowers or just take a walk in the sunshine.  Warrenton/Round Top Show is here this weekend but unless I over dose on my pain pills I will not be going but for a little while. lol Of course I could maybe talk Gretchen into taking me out there and we could have lunch one day.

I need to call Chad and see if he wants to come down for the show. He loves shopping for junk and treasures like I do.

Love to all

That is too cute, Maggie! A mini-microwave! What a great idea for a second floor or even a basement {where you maybe have your home theater room set up}.

Orange Sink said...

What a neat contraption! I could use that in my studio or when we go camping at sites that have elec. LOL!
Maggie, you always have such interesting posts and am always learning. It was from your blog that I learned what a butt call was! LOL
Keep up the good work!

Debby said...

Loving that little nuker......I'd love the chance to win one. Hope therapy went better. My HUbby was told by his doctor to stop his therapy as it was making his knee worse. Be careful. xo

Greetings! I haven't visited you for awhile and I saw this on my blogroll... You are so lucky! This baby microwave is adorable! I need a new one and loves that it comes in red, which is what I would get. I will have to check this out. Enjoy your new toy!

Nezzy said...

Warmin' up...rub it in sister. We had sleet all night and I got up this mornin' to a thick layer of ice on deck! Bummer!

What a cute little Micro!!! I could see loads of handy uses for that little gem!

God bless ya sweetie and have a fantastic Friday!!!

Marydon said...

Shoo-doggy! It is colder than Nezzy's cow pastures, out here & SNOW, yup!!! SNOW on Sunday predicted.

Gosh! Anytime they would like to send me one of these little gems to share, I'm open ... that is darling! & what a handy dandy thing to be able to travel with us.

Harold is all warm & snuggly back home ... I am beat! I'd rather be the patient, sorry, but that is a lot easier than being the caretaker!

IF you go to Round Top & see those vintage feedsacks with pretty floral colors,no stripes or plaids ... I'm buying ... don't forget me. TY

Hugs, sweet .. I love you, Maggie.

Nezzy said...

No apologies necessary girl!!! It shouldn't be this cold. Two days ago it was windy as all get out and 77 while I cleaned out my rose garden. Heck, I even had on my flippies. Then the wind turned drivin' the temps down like a jack~hammer and that night we were under freeze warnings. Last night sleet, ice and snow is predicted for the weekend. The weather changes on a dime here in Southern Missouri!!!

There's a sayin' round here (imagine that...heeehehe) that goes..."If ya don't like the weather, just hang'll change!"

....and it does. :o)

Have a good one girl!

Debbie said...

It is just the perfect size! I never knew that they made them that small. I would have the perfect spot for one. :)

Hope you have a great weekend. Looks like its going to be a cold one here.

Hahahahah! I'm not laughing at the microwave...that's just tooooo cool and I'd love to win one..but the idea of planting flowers made me snicker. Coming out of work I thought I had floaters in my eyes..nope, just snow flakes! Dang! I know it will be warm one of these days...won't it?

Gypsy Heart said...

How neat! I can think of a jillion places one could use these and yes, I'd love to win one! A friend of mine is going to Round Top this weekend ~ I'd love to do that too! Hope you feel better and can go for awhile anyway.


Home and Heart said...

SQUEAL! That's cute!! Does it come in pink??? :-)

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Well--thank you very much for introducing me to a new contraption. I've never heard of this gadget, and I can see why it would be really practical. Lucky you finding it on your doorstep!

Createology said...

Oh My...iWant an iWavecube!!! This is just the cutest little microwave. I love miniatures and must have one of these. It would be perfect in Mr. C's small workshop to keep his coffee hot. Thank you for sharing this wonderful little secret (I had not seen this before). Happy weekend to you...

Pat said...

I need one of those for my studio to heat water for tea and I need it in red. Sure would beat running down to the house for another cuppa...
Have a wonderful weekend,

Julia said...

Congratulations Maggie, I'm so glad that you won something as special as this mini microwave. Isn't it the cutest thing. I bet that you forgot all about your miserable pains when you saw that at your door. This is the first time I see a mini microwave.

I hope that you get much enjoyment out of it. I guess you and I are both lucky this week for winning something.

Have a nice weekend and if it's cold, at least you can warm up your coffee or chocolate. I won a small blanket to keep me warm. JB

Dragonfly Treasure said...

How cool! I've never seen anything like it. How handy to have a "portable" little microwave. It's a cutie too!

Andrea said...

Just dropping in to say: LOVE YOU!! Hope you are having an awesome week! Could you...would you pretty me at:

Hugs, blessings, and lots and lots and lots of prayers,

PS: THANK YOU for your constant encouragement and friendship!

Debbie Jean said...

Oh that is neat and would be so useful in my hubbies computer room to warm his coffee, etc. Lucky girl for getting one free!!
We are due snow tomorrow night. I am wondering if spring forgot us. Knowing Ohio, we will miss spring and go straight to summer.
Have a great weekend!!!

God Bless~

Tam said...

Maggie how are you? Sorry I have not commented in a while but I have been here almost everyday.
My hubby showed me this just the other day in a magazine. I think it was his texas Monthly not sure anyway I now know someone that owns one.
I think we would enjoy having one this size for our game room.
Lucky you getting this to review. They knew who to send it to.
Your chapters you wrote were so good I printed them out for my girlfriends to read. Wow they had the same reaction as your other friends on here. Keep writing on this story too.
I am going to Warrenton maybe next weekend can I send you an email and finally get to come to the north forty to meet you.
Always your friend

Tam said...

Oh and if you don't feel comfortable meeting me at the north forty we can meet in Warrenton
It is going to be me and my girlfriends but would love you to join us.

Arkansas Patti said...

Thanks,I will check their site and see if it will do what I need one for. My house is so small that any space saved is a blessing.

janet said...

What a great idea! I recently got rid of my mirowave because it took up too much of my coveted counter space. This little gem I could deal with.

I will be checking out their website...thanks for sharing. Be well!

That is adorable and would be perfect for me cause heating up stuff is all I do with a MW- no real cooking I mean...
I want one- I want one~!!
I know you were tickled pink to get this, Maggie.... enjoy every moment with it.


Buttercup said...

I'm way behind the times, but I've never heard of this little cutie before. This would be perfect for the office. We have one microwave for 150 people and I spend a fair amount of time "in line" for the microwave at lunchtime. Take good care of yourself, dear friend!

Donna said...

I WANT one Maggie!! Just the right size for our pontoon boat!!! Looks like so much fun and you wrote a perfect evalutaion! Everyone will want one!!

NitWit1 said...

Sounds like an ideal kitchen appliance for studio and very small apartments.

Julie said...

That is quite a cute little microwave...that really would be perfect for camping!
