With a 4/5-cubic-foot capacity, this 800-watt microwave oven provides ample cooking power and a compact size ideal for an individual or couple. Fifteen automatic settings take the guesswork out of cooking by automatically setting cooking times and power levels, while the oven's 10-3/4-inch-diameter turntable provides even heating. Defrost settings quickly defrost meats and poultry by weight, four cooking options ensure perfectly cooked popular foods for one or two servings, and six reheat options make it especially easy to heat frequently served foods including beverages, pizza, rolls, and muffins. In addition, Minute Plus sets the oven at "high" with a single touch, while a popcorn sensor pops microwave popcorn automatically, regardless of package size or brand. For added convenience, the oven comes with an interior light, auto-touch controls, and an easy-to-read four-digit LCD display. The microwave oven measures 18-1/8 by 10-7/8 by 14-1/8 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.
Top Customer Reviews
However, we decided to wait a few days for the second one. And to our pleasant surprise, the second one sounded "normal" and has been functioning perfectly normal ever since.
First, I don't understand what other reviewers are complaining of: when I push the button to open the door, the microwave does not slide back from the force (though I have it positioned on a wooden table, not a countertop). Also, the whole issue about a start button not being larger than the others has been blown out of proportion as a negative issue by some, I feel. Unless you have really poor eyesight, this should not present a problem.
Most important, it is big enough for a large dinner plate, the reheating of which (along with making popcorn) will serve as it primary duties under our roof. Its been a few weeks now and everything works great. Very attractive, very functional and very compact.
My only strong suggestion is to purchase directly from Amazon because, as in my case where I got a dud, their stellar customer service covered return shipping with the ease of printing out a label. All it cost me was quick trip to the post office (didn't even have to wait in line) which was well worth it.
Our replacement model is actually more attractive than our original microwave, runs more quietly, and rings more quietly when it's done. The only inconvenience associated with the new model is that it's so lightweight that the whole thing moves when you push on the door release button/lever, which was not an issue with our old one. We've solved that problem by sticking a flat piece of styrofoam between it and the wall behind it (taking care not to block any of the vents). This also assures the minimal two inches of clearance that you're supposed to have around the vents.
After singing the praises of this oven, I have to admit that the new model does not seem to be as well made as the old one--but that's true of just about anything you buy nowadays, isn't it? The construction and/or materials are obviously flimsier, hence the lighter weight. But what matters is the working parts, and hopefully the quality is still there.
I also have to say that Sharp seems to have a little quality control problem. The first oven arrived with a dent in the back wall of the interior. The owner's manual said never to use an oven with an interior dent, so we had to return that one for a replacement. Here's where Amazon's excellent customer service comes in. I notified Amazon of the problem and they had a replacement on the way immediately.
