Akai A24002 Features

The Akai A24002 is an 800W model. That means it comes with enough power to cook food relatively quickly, but also keeps the price low compared to more expensive 900W or 1000W microwaves. It also comes with six different power levels – allowing you to cook a variety of foods – and a range of automatic programmes. This makes cooking, reheating and defrosting with the Akai A24002 much easier than models without these features.

The capacity of the A24002 is 20 litres. This is the “standard” size for most solo models, and means the A24002 is big enough for medium-sized dinner plates. We recommend a larger microwave if you want to cook big meals though.

In terms of appearance, the A24002 is a stylish microwave that certainly doesn’t look “cheap.” While it doesn’t have the style of retro models such as the Swan 800W, it will blend into almost any kitchen without being an eye sore.

Other features include a child lock – which stops kids from changing programs – and an extended warranty. The interior of the A24002 is also designed with an acrylic lining, which makes it fast and easy to clean.

Overview of Akai A24002 microwave features:

  • 800W microwave
  • A range of automatic cooking programmes
  • Six power levels
  • Acrylic lining for easy cleaning
  • Child lock
  • 20L interior capacity
  • Extended warranty

One reviewer points out that the button to open the door can occasionally get stuck. This is a minor problem, however, considering the excellent performance and low price.

Akai A24002 Summary and Rating

The Akai A24002 doesn’t have many advanced features – such as a grill or auto-defrost setting – but that’s because it’s designed to be a simple, straightforward model that provides great value.  Looking at customer reviews, it appears that Akai have met these goals. For that reason, we’ve awarded it four stars and recommend this model if you want to buy a solo microwave.
