The repair shop had it for 2 months waiting on parts. I got it back after a long wait and at first use another problem with the oven arose. Not the same problem mind you.
The repair company said they would come pick it up and return it once it was fixed. I just dropped it off and they returned it in less then a week.
After a week of use, the steamer started to leak from behind the oven. Mind you, it is suppose the drain from the front of the oven. I contacted sharp and was told that they did not had any new ones available but did have some refurbished ones. As I mentioned I enjoyed what the oven could do when it did work, so I agreed.
2 weeks later I receive the refurbished steamwave which did not work right out of the box. I contacted sharp again and a rep told me they had brand new ones in and he would make sure it got to me in 3 to 5 Buisness days. Upset but really, really trying to end this on a good note, I once again (being foolish) I agree.
I waited a week and heard nothing I contacted sharp again and a rep told me that the freight company had the steamwave and gave me a tracking number and a phone number to check the status. I hung up and called the freight company only to hear.....you guessed it, "they didn't have a package coming to me". The tracking number was for the original refurbished steamwave.Read more ›
bought this as it seems to be good combo of everything and I don't have to take up precious stovetop space to steam nor deal with cleaning hassles after the fact...
in concept this product seems sound and when used properly, the food that comes out is very good, however, trying to use this thing properly is a nightmare. The buttons/menu was designed for a Trekkie cuz there's all these weird menu settings that are not intuitive. I leave my manual on top of the unit and need to consult it every time I use it.
The grill function is also pretty much useless because you can't set the temperature, it's either grill HIGH or LOW.
There is no rotating susan like all other microwaves, but I guess that's to conserve space, but although I find the microwave generally fairly good at evenly heating up foods, hot spots still develop, so I have to manually stop in between and stir my food and then re-start microwaving.
The steaming part... works well but the cleanup is a PITA. manual says you have to use the "drain" function at the end of each day when steaming was used, to prevent moisture buildup internally. You also have to wipe down the interior of the unit after each steam use, and there's a grill element on inside on the top, which means you can't really dry the steam that's behind the grill. There's also a drip tray in the front bottom of the unit to catch drips, and there's always lots of water there. You also need to wash this drip tray plus the water container that holds the water since it seems to carry the odour of whatever you're cooking.
In the end, the complex menu plus the high maintenance hassle renders this unit unused and taking up valuable counter space.
Only gave it 2 stars because it does work well when we can figure it out.

This sounded like a good idea but in use, it is just too difficult to use the functions. If it was the only appliance in the house I might remember settings. Read morePublished 7 months ago by T Stanley
