Product Description

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, this all-in-one microwave oven allows for making healthier choices when cooking at home. The versatile appliance can be used for microwave cooking, traditional steaming, or as a convection oven with temperatures ranging from 100 to 450 degrees F for baking or roasting. It also provides a SuperSteam Convection option, which combines two types of cooking--superheated steam and convection heat--in order to brown and crisp while retaining moisture and natural flavors. The oven provides a spacious 1.1-cubic-foot interior, which measures 13-3/8 by 14-1/8 by 10-1/8 inches, and its user-friendly control panel with an LCD display ensures simple operation. Choose from a range of automatic cooking categories: in Microwave mode, it offers six Sensor Cook settings, reheat, and popcorn; in Steam mode it offers vegetables, fish/seafood, and poached eggs; and in SuperSteam/Convection mode, choose from balanced meals, poultry, meats, fish, vegetables, pizza, and convenience foods.

The unit also provides reheat and defrost options, 11 variable power levels, a 24-hour clock, and sleep mode, as well as a pull-down door, an interior oven light, sound on/off, demonstration mode, a child lock, and a steam-clean cycle. Accessories include two porcelain-enamel baking trays, two nonstick racks (high and low), one steam basket, and a Touch Guide, as well as a SuperSteam Cookbook full of healthy recipes, cooking tips, and nutritional information. Sharp's RK-12S30 Kit (sold separately) allows the appliance to be built into a 30-inch wall oven cabinet, perfect when coordinating with other Sharp Insight and Insight Pro appliances like a lower microwave drawer or warming drawer. If built-in options are not possible, it can also be placed on the countertop or a cart. The UL-listed multi-purpose oven measures 20-1/4 by 21-3/4 by 17-1/4 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

Color: Stainless Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off this is a VERY attractive appliance. The picture on the website does not do it justice, as weird as that may seem. It is substancial, well built, and looks and feels like something from a professional kitchen. Even though the measurements are documented, the oven just seems bigger. Personally, I think it's too big for a counter and would be best mounted into a unit. There could be some problems with mounting because you absolutely DO need the recommended space above, behind and to the sides - you can't get away with putting it up against anything if you plan on using the steam feature.

Good things:
The convention over works exactly as it should - I made a cake and it came out super-fluffy and perfectly cooked in and out, and very moist. Also made a sandwich and the bread was nice and crispy and the tomatoes inside were perfectly cooked. I made two chickens - one with the steam and one without. Both were good, but the one with the steam did get brown (lightly) and looked better, although they both tasted great and moist.

Microwave works fine. Downside is that there is no spinning wheel, so you have to stir and flip things around - AND - the microwave keeps stopping to tell you to do that. A bit annoying.

Although the job wheel feels very expensive and all the options are laid out well - I would prefer some buttons, espcially with the microwave. You can't just pop something in and start nuking. YOu have to press the microwave button and then use the wheel to go down one selection and then press enter and then use the wheel to spin to a time and then you can finally hit start. They should have moved that up one level to make it faster.

You get several well built pans and racks with this, which is very nice bonus.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I love to cook and I was intrigued by the SuperSteam and its method of cooking. A simple convection microwave combination is nothing new but this is the most advanced cooking apparatus I have ever used. I was hoping that SuperSteam wouldn't be a useless gimmick. It wasn't. The oven itself is boxy and larger than I expected. I can see it would work nicely installed, as it takes up almost all of a 36" countertop and just barely fits under the upper cabinet. It is a good looking machine, solid feeling and even has a sleep mode option for the display, so it won't light up a dark room if that's what you want. Just another nice touch.

I have made several dishes in the less than two weeks I have had this and I am impressed, giving this over 90% satisfactory rating. (That's just a personal measure). I like the idea of cooking the same foods, but lighter, which steam allows you to do. My first dish was a salmon fillet (18 minutes), which came out done to perfection and easily the best salmon I have made. A few things to note, I used an olive oil mister and barely used any oil at all, mostly just for flavor. The filet came out perfect - inside and out. It is amazing to see that steam can cook and crisp, believe me, it can. It does a crispy outside and moist inside like I've never seen. One big downside when I make salmon, the odor remains for days, despite my cleaning attempts. No such issue here, and cleaning was very simple. Scallops came out just perfect as well. I have many more dishes to test and now my expectations are high for future meals. Lastly, many of us are used to the "intelligent" cooking process of our ovens and microwaves. With one exception, the cooking program was spot on and the one miss was not that bad.

After 28 months, I got a blown fuse. I visited the local hardware store and spent thirteen bucks for a set of security tipped bits and fuse. You need only the T20 size star security bit and a 15A microwave fuse. See video. Besides the two star bits, you will also need to remove the screws around the back of the microwave and lift the metal panel on the left side (looking from the back of the microwave). Note: the metal panel is one piece covering the left, top and right side of the microwave.


This is a well-built kitchen equipment with simple lines, nice and handsome details. Even the handle alone is made of solid aluminum. Compared with my other kitchen appliances, the Sharp AX-1200 can take the place of a microwave oven, a steamer, and a convection oven. The only thing that it cannot do in our household is toast a bread. Anyway, it is quite too big to assume itself to be another toaster. Now, there is only one footprint for these different appliances, and it performs superbly in all of the three types of cooking I am familiar with. And then there is the 4th type which is a combination of steam and convection which is intended to make meat brown and at the same time retaining moisture and nutrients. For a medium sized family, we are using it more often as opposed to our regular sized oven. At 1.1 cubic ft, it is an obvious choice for less energy consumption.

A kit is an option that is available if you want to mount it on a cabinet. Just FYI, the suffix S and K (as in AX-1200S and AX-1200K) stands for S=stainless and K for Black.

For a brief energy comparison: The AX-1200 is rated at 700W as a microwave which is just half the wattage of our old micro.
