The phrase, "retro microwave" is a bit of an oxymoron, but that's okay because this is one snazzy looking little affair.

The 1200-watt countertop microwave is offered in nine bold colors, including robin's egg blue, buttercup, candy red, flamingo pink, and mint green.

The microwave has all the features you'd expect in a modern appliance, including an instant-on popcorn button, even though no one in the 1950s had even heard of "microwave popcorn."
