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.

I used it to heat soup, and for oatmeal in the morning.
One morning it just broke.
The door closed, the light and fan came on, but there was no heat.
It emitted a burning plastic smell.
Sharp service told me that I needed to have a Sharp-authorized technician examine it before it could be replaced.
Unfortunately, the nearest Sharp-authorized service location is a two-hour round trip drive for me. They don't accept shipments, nor are they are not open on weekends.
This means that in order for me to obtain warranty service on this relatively new product I would have to *take a day off work*, as it is too far to drive on my lunch hour.
Also, one cannot return a product to Sharp for examination; as per the warranty you must "hand carry" or ship the item to a service location
(if the service location accepts shipments; mine doesn't).
So I believe my current options are:
1) find a local microwave service place, and pay for the service myself
2) throw the oven away
I recommend not purchasing this microwave oven because it may break soon after purchase.
I recommend not purchasing any Sharp appliance unless you know that a Sharp-authorized service location is close by.
Best Regards and Good Luck!
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.Read more ›
