More Toshiba Microwave Features:

10 Power Levels

Your foods are precious, that’s why you don’t want to risk overcooking them in the microwave. Lucky for you, the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS comes with 10 different power levels to choose from. Why use different power levels? Well, different foods heat up quicker than others!

For example, did you know that foods containing a lot of fat and sugar will heat up very quickly? This means that if you want to heat up a nice creme brulee, you better have that sucker on a lower power level! If you tried to heat up said dish in a traditional microwave containing only one or two power levels, it’s nuke city!

As a general rule of thumb, the lower levels (1-5) are for softening foods, warming up bread or other starches, and melting chocolate.

The higher power levels (6-10) are for roasting meats, boiling a liquid, browning, and cooking fish. Our Toshiba black microwave has the nuance to handle any type of food, no matter how quickly they heat up!

Smart Sensor Cooking

Our microwave also comes with a super-smart sensor to make cooking easy! This sensor can detect the humidity level and texture of the food you’re cooking. This allows it to instantly determine the best time and power level to cook it perfectly! All you have to do is pop in the food and hit start, done! Our smart sensor works for:

  • Reheating
  • Frozen pizza
  • Frozen dinner entrees
  • Potatoes
  • Rice
  • Frozen or fresh vegetables

With the help of the microwaves’ smart sensor, you’ll never have to guess the best time or temperature! This risks ruining your food if done incorrectly. The smart sensor eliminates any human error and cooks your food perfectly without fail!

Easy-to-Clean Interior

Is there anything worse than cleaning an incredibly dirty microwave? This can be a source of unending frustration in the office. Say you’re about to heat up a nice cup of coffee only to discover one of your co-workers just nuked a bowl of chili. Yikes! No amount of force in the world is scraping off that caked up crust!

Thankfully, the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS comes with a smart coating that’s resistant to staining! Nothing can accumulate or crust up on this baby! That’s because we use a patented hardened material that refuses to let anything stick!

Cleaning your amazing new microwave is as simple as a few swipes from a moist towel. That’s it! Your coffee can heat itself up in a spotless cavity. That sure beats enjoying a hot cup of chili flakes!

ECO mode

Nobody likes to waste power. Not only is it bad for the environment, but it jacks up your electricity bill! Traditional microwaves are constantly sucking up power, even when you’re not using them.

That’s why we built an ECO mode into our microwave to save energy. When your microwave is on standby, it automatically cuts its power usage by 50%! This saves you money and helps out the planet.

Don’t worry, as soon as you need your microwave again it will instantly return to normal power.

Custom and 1-lb Auto-Defrost

One of the microwave’s most important duties is to defrost foods quickly and efficiently. That way you don’t spend two days waiting for your chicken dinner to thaw out.

Defrosting can get tricky when you just guess at the right time and temperature. You will have no such worries with the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS! We feature a defrost menu that allows you to tell your microwave the food’s weight. From there your obligation is done! The microwave will intuitively take it from there and perfectly defrost the item!

You can also set it to the 1-lb auto-defrost option. The microwave will use its sensor to find the perfect time and temperature!


If you’re in the market for a new microwave, you owe it to yourself to try out the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS! No other microwave on the market comes close to matching its incredible features. With its sleek and compact look, smart sensor, easy-to-clean interior, sound control, and ECO mode, it’s a force to be reckoned with! Don’t wait to try out the Toshiba EM131A5C-BS to start microwaving in style!
