Sharp commercial microwaves are known for dependability, quick cooking and their easy to use features. This one is no exception! * In fact, this particular medium duty microwave oven is so great we bought one for the office. The light up dial timer is clearly marked with 10, 15 and 30 second increments, so it's easy to use. The heating time guide is there to provide accurate suggestions and the sturdy handle is easy to grab. * With a sleek gray cabinet and a stainless steel door, it's about as good looking as microwaves get. You can even see inside to monitor your food's process. The best part is, it's built to withstand years of regular commercial use. * Specs - Unit Dimensions: 20 1/2"W x 12 1/8"H x 16"D, Capacity: 1.0 cu ft, Cavity Dimensions: 13 7/8"W x 8 1/8" x 14 5/8"D, Unit Weight: 37lb, Output Power: 1000 watts, Power Required: 120v, 60Hz, 1.6KW, 14 Amps, and Cord Length: 60"L.
Top Customer Reviews
1) It is built to last. Everything on this microwave is purposefully simple and apparently designed to minimize the possibility of breakage. Instead of a plate that will get dragged out with the food and shatter on the floor, it has a glass floor that's fixed onto the body of the microwave. Instead of a push-button control panel whose buttons will inevitably crack or get desensitized, you have an "infinite rotation" wheel that is solidly attached; and because it's not calibrated physically it won't get out of alignment. Instead of a clock that you will continually have to reset, it has ... no clock. The interior is metal all around and all surfaces are easy to clean and seem resistant to scratching.
2) You can intuitively and freely modify cook time while the food is heating. Just spin the wheel, and it does exactly what you'd expect. I can't understand why almost no digital microwave will let you do this, but now that it's easy I do it all the time.
3) Instead of a carousel it has a different kind of heating mechanism that ensures even heating without actually moving the food. This means you can heat larger or odd-shaped dishes without hotspots and without knocking your plate out of alignment. I was surprised at how well this works in practice -- food consistently requires less stirring and has less temperature variation after heating than with any other microwave I've ever owned or used. Naturally you should still be cautious about checking your food before shoveling it in your mouth or feeding it to a small child, but it's nice not to have so many frozen-in-the-middle burritos or ice-cube-like tofu chunks in your leftover chinese food.
If you'd like to use variable temperatures or auto-cook, or presets for popcorn, or have another clock or timer, or have something that's also a convection oven, or do anything other than heating food or food-like stuff in an intuitive and foolproof way, look elsewhere. If you are willing to pay more for a microwave that does one thing and does it better than you'd expect, this is the one.
There is another one of these units in the hospital cafeteria where it is subjected to the general public abuse of countless patient visitors and hospital staff who don't give a damn about another's property. It has been rock solid reliable for over 3 years. At least in a commercial restaurant, the employees are trained and motivated by the owner not to abuse the equipment. Three years in a hospital is easily the equivalent of ten years anywhere else.
The manufacturing label on the two units indicate they are made in Thailand, not China.
Update 2/10/13 - Finally bought one for home use. Very pleased. Only issue is that dial markers can be hard to see when selecting cooking time. There isn't a cooking time display above dial as shown in the Amazon product picture.
Update 9/6/13 - All units hospital and mine still operating without any issues.
Update 9/25/14 - All units still functioning perfect. No cosmetic wear on the chrome plated handle. The stone cooking surface is not even stained.
Update 2/24/16 - All units noted above still functioning perfectly.
We first tried the Panasonic NE-1022F Commercial Microwave. It's about the same size and feature set; it has a non-electric dial (spring driven?) that worked perfectly; at the end of a cycle the Panasonic rings a mechanical bell. Alas, but that one arrived dented; we returned it for the Sharp.
This Sharp microwave is a winner. Simple to use - perfect for a busy household. Turn the knob, and the numbers around the dial light up, showing the timer. Open and close with a handle. That's it - no buttons, no programming, no blinking clock, no thinking.
Powerful microwave - gets a cup of coffee hot in 2 minutes. (I measured it: 8 ounces of water in a pyrex cup - got to 205F
in 2 minutes)
Easy to clean: There's no rotating carousel, because there's an internal microwave deflector (the microwave standing wave pattern is constanly changing) So you can quickly clean the inside cavity - it's stainless steel on top, back, and sides; white plastic on bottom.
Although it spends 99 percent of its time "off", it constantly guzzles 9 watts of standby power. So if you use this oven for 15 minutes each day, half your power goes into heating your food, and half and an equal amount is wasted. This phantom power load is more than many other microwaves, and there's no need - it has no electronic display. Sharp - get your act together! (That Panasonic microwave had zero loss to phantom power)
Amazon's picture is inaccurate: there is not a digital display at the top.
That's news - we're pretty happy with this guy.
