I had one for 9-10 years in Iowa from 2000/2001-2010, then it broke. This original one I purchased from Wal-mart for what I believe was a hefty $450 at the time (I might be recalling it incorrectly, but whatever I paid was pretty high). I don't know how it broke as I was out of state at the time and my mom was the one who ended up having it quit working for her. When I returned, I ordered a replacement from Amazon in mid-2010 as far as I recall.
I left Iowa and moved to Houston, Texas, leaving the convection microwave with my mom. After going without one for the past 3-3.5 years, I decided I really needed to get one here. I was happy to find it listed on Amazon for approximately the same price range I paid back then.
After using it the past 2 days, I can state that I will never go without this product again. If it breaks in another 10 years, provided they still make it, I'm going to get one immediately. There are very few items that I must have in my house, but this one is indispensable.
Since I cook mainly for myself, it is perfect for 1-2 people households where you do not need to make a large quantity of food. The capacity is relatively large regardless and it doesn't heat up your place like using the stove would do. It also cleans up far easier than a stove along with having a slew of buttons that are programmed to allow quick selection for set items to properly cook.
I highly recommend it to anyone!
Only a couple of things I would complain about: one "leg" is a little short so it wobbles a bit; and the display is quite easy to read until I stand right next to the oven to use it. Then, at the angle from which I am looking, the WHOLE display lights up and I can't read a thing: I have to bend down to read it! Annoying, but I can live with it.
I have used the Sharp microwave for grilling and roasting, as well as normal microwave functions, and the results are better than I could have expected. Grilled and roasted foods are extremely tender and juicy - at least of the quality one could expect from a conventional oven. I have had similar success with cooking vegetables.
Reheating muffins and breads has amazing results - they seem fresh baked and, unlike breads normally heated in a microwave, do not harden in a minute. I have used the convection feature for preparing breads, and had especially stunning results with preparing a frozen chicken pie. I suppose the surrounding air from the convection oven was the reason, but it seemed like a fresh-baked meat pie.
There are a few drawbacks, which would not compromise my five star rating because of the great versatility and high quality of the unit overall. The 'auto' roast, defrost, and grill features are very convenient, as is the prompting (telling one when to turn over the meat, for example), but they are very limited in the weight restrictions. For example, if one is defrosting ground meat, it has to be a certain weight - significantly more than that of a single hamburger. Though grills and roasts would mostly fit in to the specifications, this is a drawback for defrosting, where one must estimate times and key them in manually.
Another difficulty I have experienced, when grilling on the rack, is that drippings which fall either on to the carousel tray or a pan placed under the meat can become badly burnt and baked on. This was slightly disappointing for my intentions of preparing gravies on the side. My single attempt to do so meant I had to soak the pan overnight and then scrape. The grilling results are wonderful, as far as the effect on the meats, but there is a great deal of smoke generated. Whenever I grill, it sets off the smoke alarm - probably best to roast, then only grill at the end.
I would advise anyone purchasing this microwave to read the manual in full. The capabilities will not be realised otherwise. I actually use the unit less for 'standard microwaving' than for its other features.
One further comment: the Sharp microwave cookbook, which is advertised in the manual for the unit, is useful but not specific to the multi-functional machine. It contains only microwave recipes - none for grilling, roasting, or convection.
Overall, and considering that it can replace several appliances, this microwave is an extraordinary value.
