Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyChef This product does everything! Use it instead of the oven or grill often.
Purchased this when my Magic Chef kept humming after it completed cooking food. Spent a little more than I had planned but well worth it. Could not be happier with it. Cooks and defrosts food much more evenly. Have so far used Compu cook , Compu pizza and Compu grill features. (just keep the manual near the unit for a while to know what setting numbers to use). No soggy pizza crust! Crisp how I like it. Was surprised how well it grills food. Takes longer than a regular grill, but food comes out with grill lines as if cooked on an outside grill. So many more features that I look forward to exploring.

Can do just about anything with convection/microwave combo. Don't need to heat up my kitchen oven, when making single servings. Convection browns food better than microwave. Microwave does everything that you can expect of it too. Small in size, but perfect for countertop in small kitchen. Some recipes came with it that I've already tried - and like!

I've not had sufficient time to fully evaluate the features of this oven. There are many different options and I can only report on what I have used. Therefore the jury is still out on whether I would recommend it or not.
The convection oven. I tried to cook a chicken dish from a standard recipe which was to cook at 350 for 50 min., uncovered. I set the oven for this temperature and time. The chicken was rubber, HARD rubber when it finished and basically not eatable. I know my conventional oven when used as a convection the temperature is lower and the time usually shorter, so I definitely need to experiment more to find out just how to adjust for standard recipes.
The microwave. For the most part works like any microwave. However the Panasonic I replaced had a power of 1200, where this is 900. We frequently cook poppadom in the wave by brushing them with a little oil. The package says to cook them this way for 45 seconds. In the old oven they would puff up in 30 seconds. I put them in this oven for a minute, then another minute and then a third minute and they still would not puff. Ended up cooking them under the broiler in my conventional oven. This is the only microwave problem I have had. All other dishes have seemed to cook okay.
There is an instruction booklet, but it is not very helpful. There is also a chart inside the door which I find difficult to read (there is no light that shines on it, the printing is black on silver which creates a glare)

Sharp Carousel always does the best microwaving and this unit with convection and grill is very versatile. The minor criticisms are that the right side has a special delicate panel wall, and it is hard to keep food or containers from hitting it. The turntable is a bit wobbly on its mount. Nonetheless, this is a great product at a very reasonable price.

We needed this exact microwave to replace the one in our RV. Were delighted to find just what we needed on the Home Depot site.

My last Sharp II microwave/convection oven was purchased in l988. I overloaded the revolving tray and it stopped turning (my fault). Afterward, it appeared not to be heating evenly on microwave setting. Wanted to replace it with the same model. This was the closest that I found. I have had it for a couple of weeks now and am very pleased with its performance. Made a bundt cake on convection setting recently. The cake pan filled the oven and I was concerned that there might not be enough air circulating around because it was so close to the walls. It came out evenly browned and perfectly cooked. It is unfortunate that this model is not carried in the stores. I hesitated for a few weeks because I wanted to see the appliance before buying it. It was only for the fact that Home Depot offered free shipping and also that I could bring it back to a store if I was not completely satisfied.

It does everything it says but complicated to learn the instructions.

Owned one of these for years, just got this for my mother to replace her microwave and toaster oven. I love this oven.
Since I'm the lazy sort, I don't really use all the the features.. I
know the easiest ways to bake "crispy" breaded chicken breasts, bake a whole chicken, pork chops, etc. The size is good, fits on the counter. I did find this oven for $30 cheaper at another online store and Home Depot matched the price.
