There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Before purchasing, I did considerable research and found much more positive reviews for the R459Y listed below:
A)This same microwave received a 4.3 star rating with a 92% recommendation from 132 reviews on another (not-to-be-named) website.
B)Good Housekeeping reviewed this oven here: [...] (Note that they rated it poor for making popcorn. I believe that they made an error during their testing as you’re supposed to push the “popcorn” button once for a 1.75 oz bag, twice for a 3.00 oz bag, and three times for a 3.50 oz bag. I suspect that they only pushed the button once for a typical 3.00 oz bag. I found that it worked perfect when I pushed the button twice (per instructions) for a 3.00 oz bag.)
C)Consumer Reports magazine typically places Panasonic and Sharp microwave ovens at the top of their ratings. (Note: What CR fails to test for is long-term durability. Additional research, on my part, shows that Sharp microwaves last considerably longer as Panasonic has reduced the quality/durability of their Inverter Technology components in recent years. I’m sure that the features and initial performance of a new Panasonic microwave are great, but expect to have to replace it after a year or two of use.)
Some microwave features and comments:
-The outside of this microwave (22.2”W x 12.5”H x 16.4”D) is much smaller than the ones built 20 or 30 years ago for a comparable interior size.
-The inside dimensions of this microwave are listed as 15”W x 9.7”H x 15.2”D (1.3 cu.ft.) with the turntable measuring 12.75” diameter. I measured the dimensions on my unit (minus various bumps and dimples on the walls and to the top surface of the turntable) and got an actual size of 14.8”W x 9.0” H x 14.6” D (calculates to only 1.13 cu. Ft.) Because the cooking area is really limited to a pan, plate, or bowl that can fit on and slightly overhang the turntable such that it can rotate without hitting the inside walls of the oven, the actual usable interior space would be 0.87 cu.ft. (Note that this reduced usable space is typical of ALL microwaves that incorporate a turntable as the square corners of the oven interior really aren’t usable. Keep this in mind if going from a microwave without a turntable to one with a turntable so you don’t select too small of a size.) For me, the size is just about right.
-This microwave has a “time defrost” button which I have not used much yet. Like most other microwave ovens, it cycles the magnitron tube off and on (similar to reduced-power-level cooking) to slowly defrost the food instead of cooking or burning it. The oven beeps midway through defrosting to signal when the food should be turned or rearranged for even defrosting.
-Stage Cooking - This feature allows you to set a defrost time, followed by a hold time, followed by a cooking time.
-If you forget and leave something cooked in the microwave, it will periodically beep as a reminder for it to be removed. Some reviewers of microwaves found this feature to be very bothersome and intrusive, but I found it to be just fine as it is not an obnoxious sound on this oven.
-There are 3 different ways to enter cooking time with this microwave. They are as follows:
a)Express Cook - at 100% power, you can press “1” for 1 minute of cooking time, “2” for 2 minutes of cooking time, etc. up to “6” for 6 minutes of cooking time.
b)+30sec button - at 100% power, you can press this button once for 30seconds of cooking time, twice for 60 seconds of cooking time, etc. up to 10 times for 5 minutes of cooking time.
c)Power Level Timed Cook - First, you press the “power” button once for 100% power, twice for 90% power, etc. up to 10 times for 10% power. Then using the number pad, you can enter the cook time anywhere from 1 second up to 60 minutes.
-The door is very easy to open and close. Opening is accomplished by pushing a large button (only single finger required) making it easy to put something in the oven when you have your hands full.
-This is a very quiet microwave. It barely makes more noise than my refrigerator compressor when it is running. This is especially important if trying to hear a radio or TV in the kitchen or an adjacent room while cooking.
-The control panel has light gray text on a black background for the black model that I purchased. Although some reviews of Sharp microwaves have been criticized for its readability, I have no problem seeing the panel on this model. I suspect that the white model would be even clearer with black text on a white background and should be considered if you have poor eyesight or low room lighting.
-The inside light on this model turns on when the microwave is running and also when the microwave is stopped with the door open. This helps with seeing to stir food and clean inside the microwave. I believe some of the smaller Sharp models (like 1.1 cu.ft.) do not illuminate when the door is opened.
-This microwave model uses a built-in sensor which helps to determine cooking time based on when it starts sensing steam released from your food. The sensor works with the potato, frozen entree, frozen vegetable, and dinner plate reheat functions. So far, I’ve used it to make baked potatoes, and it worked perfectly. If it works as well for the other functions mentioned, it is well worth the extra money to purchase a model which includes this feature.
-Includes “popcorn” and “beverage” One-Touch buttons. The name “one-touch” isn’t quite correct as you might need to push the “popcorn” button multiple times depending on the size of popcorn bag and the “beverage” button once for every cup of liquid being heated. As mentioned earlier, the popcorn button works just right when instructions are followed.
-This microwave has a kitchen timer which is always handy.
-The cord on this microwave is only 39 inches long. My previous microwave had a 55 inch long cord. For many people this won’t be an issue, but for me it was as I had to purchase a $5 short appliance extension cord to reach my closest power outlet.
-The Stage Cooking feature (briefly described earlier) is nice, but it does not allow one to program the oven to cook at two different cook times or power levels in sequence. For example, on my previous microwave, I could instruct it to run at 50% power for 3 minutes followed by 100% power for 2 minutes with a audible beep in between. Sometimes frozen dinners have such staged cooking instructions. Other times, you’d like to cook something for 1/2 the total time and then beep to remind you when to stir the food before completing the other 1/2 of the time.
-Auto defrost buttons - There are buttons for automatic defrosting meat, poultry, and fish. I think these would be useful, except that each is restricted to only 4 different weights of meat. For example, the “meat defrost” button only allows for 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, or 2.5 lbs. There is no way to defrost less than a pound, more than 2.5 pounds, or any weight in between the 4 allowable weights. (Even my 26 year old microwave allowed me to enter the weight in increments of 0.1 lbs from 0.1 to 9.9 lbs.) At least the oven’s digital display does show the weights allowed for each defrost mode. As a back-up, there is a “timer defrost” button that can be used instead but requires some additional guesswork to determine the amount of time to enter.
-Soften button - This also seems like a neat feature that allows one to soften butter, chocolate, ice cream, or cream cheese. Unfortunately, it is limited to specific quantities which is even more restrictive than the “auto defrost” buttons. For example, the ice cream soften feature is only for 1/2 gallon (2 quarts) of ice cream so it won’t work correctly for a single serving, a 4 or 5 quart pail, or even the more-standard 1.5 or 1.75 quart containers. Unlike the “auto defrost” buttons, the quantities aren’t shown on the display or printed anywhere on the control panel requiring one to either memorize them or refer to the operating manual every time one attempts to use them.
Durability and Warranty:
Long-term durability of this microwave is unknown to me at this time since it is a new purchase. (I will update this review when and if I experience an early failure.) The sad truth is that all brands and models of microwaves have much reduced life expectancies today compared to the microwaves of the past. (This microwave replaces my Amana which finally stopped working after over 26 years of nearly daily use.) My research suggests that Sharp microwaves last a bit longer than most. Most microwaves have a 1-year warranty on all parts and labor. Sharp’s warranty is similar, but extends the warranty an additional 4 years on the magnitron tube (labor not included) which is the main component powering a microwave oven.
This is a very capable and good looking microwave oven that I really like so far. Positive highlights are the quiet operating sound, built-in sensor function, nice operating door and light, reasonable price, and longer warranty. Negatives are few and definitely not deal-breakers. They primarily involve limitations for entering multi-stage cooking and limited weights/quantities for the “auto defrost” and “soften” functions. This is kind of disappointing since Sharp could have easily addressed these issues with better programming which shouldn’t have added much cost. If tenths were allowed, I’d give it 4.7 stars. Since they aren’t, I give it 5 stars.
I'm used to being able to look up a vegetable, fresh, #2, enter how many and it cooked it to perfection.
Rice isn't even mentioned and that's part of my daily meal. Rice cooker, #6, #2== 34.5 minutes cooking time on the power preset by the microwave..
There's a popcorn button but I 'm allergic to popcorn. I guess the gentleman I spoke with didn't understand what I was looking for.
Now every food will be a guessing game. I wanted a 12 inch turntable and the rest above these were 15 inch. Very few 12 inch turntables to pick from.The book gives very little direction for cooking. Only 2 pages for food. This will have to do but I will be tossing out lots of food since the guidelines = a guessing game.
The footprint is what I wanted. It's not stainless steel, it's gray color.. Easy to set clock.
But my reading comprehension is quite bad right now so I guess it's mine to figure out
7/27/17 update:SHARP stepped up to the plate and are replacing this unit with another model.
It should not be hot on sides and top after cooking rice for 15-30 minutes.
