Subject:Microwave oven UI design
Time:02:45 pm
I use two microwave ovens on a regular basis. The user interfaces on them are very different. One seems incredibly logical to me, and the other is completely illogical. I'm throwing the two issues out for a vote, since my friends rule the world.
Poll #1634666 Microwave UI Design

Which button should be the most prominent?

Start
47(81.0%)
Stop
11(19.0%)

There's a "quick minute" button. Should the oven start when you press it, or should you have to hit "Quick Minute" then "Start"?

Start automatically
54(91.5%)
Quick Minute, then Start
5(8.5%)

You made me walk to the micro wave. Mine is QM+Start.
Quick Minute is rarely used, Popcorn more often. There was one case who called for reducing the power level of the micro wave. All other cases just need time, start and sometimes stop.

Fan and light are used frequently, too.

I use Quick Minute (Minute Plus on my home microwave) more frequently than anything else.

Same. I'm also annoyed when quick start buttons (be they 15s, 30s, 1M, whatever) can't be pressed repeatedly to add time.
