Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Primrose Best Microwave Oven!
One of the best microwave ovens we have ever owned. It is easy to use, has consistent performance, and is easy to care for. The classic back matches the kitchen decorum and the interior is the perfect size for almost any dishware. Long lasting, heavy duty appliance that is a must have at a reasonable price for the high quality product. Ours lasted for 10+ years without problems and minimal care. We will be purchasing a new one when this one finally breaks down.
It takes up an adequate amount of countertop space so for someone with a small kitchen or use outside of a kitchen the large size may be an issue. We did some rearranging and it worked out great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DLC84 Very happy with purchase
First, I was very impressed with delivery, I think this arrived just 1 1/2 days after ordering. I like the sensor heat features, and ease of use since the oven scrolls instructions across the display panel. So far the features I have used have heated foods just right without overcooking. This is a great oven in its price range. I have only owned it several weeks so can not comment on longevity, but I bought it based on reviews about Sharp quality, so we'll see. If you order without seeing the oven personally, be sure to measure out the dimensions where you want to put it ---I did that and was still a bit surprised how big it is.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ANashville I'm a big fan of Sharp microwaves!
I've used the Sharp carousel microwaves for years - and they LAST for years. The one and only beef I have with this one is the buttons. They have soooo many buttons on it, now, that they are in microscopic font. I have to drag out my glasses to read the buttons. The highly used buttons like timer, stop, and start are no longer boldly marked. And, it's a pain to use the timer button. You have to hit timer and then more buttons before you can enter the time, which is irritating and creates opportunities for error (and ruining food). The actual microwave is great, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RSue great features
I really like this microwave. It has about every feature I need in a microwave. It has sensory cooking which works great, it circulates the heat for quicker cooking. 1 button push for sensor cooking: popcorn, baked potato, fresh veggies, ground meat, rice, fish/seafood, frozen entrees chicken breast, frozen veggies. Reheat: fresh rolls/muffins, beverage, frozen rolls/muffins. Defrost: ground meat, steaks/chops, boneless poultry, bone in poultry. It has 10 powers you can choose from to use when cooking or thawing.
I've only had it for about 4 weeks but so far so good. I use it several times daily and it is working really good for me. I'm still learning about all the features. Quality product and very good price.

Be careful using this microwave for the first time if you're not accustomed to the 1200 watts! I incinerated the first few items I cooked. The carousel is great, no turning and fussing with the food. The sensor cook and reheat functions are wonderful! Just one button and done! Yes, it does know the difference between frozen and fresh. I can't say enough good about this microwave. The only "down side" is that the door seems a tad flimsy - will see how it lasts. Fast delivery and intact - no problems! Highly recommend this model and brand.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by happyemployee One of the best I've used
I selected this one for the office when the previous microwave died. It's by far, a major step up from the old one. One unique feature was that if you want to cook using even minutes, you can simply press the "start" button that many times (If you want to warm up your cold coffee for just a minute, press 'start' just once). To steep my tea bag, I pressed 'start' twice....etc. for a hot cup of herbal tea. It's also attractive and tall enough for those high coffee mugs. I consider it to be the best microwave in its price range by a long-shot.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by disappointed Sharp Carousel microwave
Our previous Sharp Carousel microwave lasted us 16 years and we decided to get another one. The microwave door did not seal. We could feel air blowing out the left bottom corner front. and when we investigated to try to find the source of the air, we found water on the countertop beneath the microwave. Lots of water!!!! No where in the instruction booklet did it mention water outside the microwave. The vents in the back were not blocked and there was no mention of a vent underneath the microwave front.

I just received this microwave. I unpacked it and pluged it in.
The first thing my wife noticed was that the light was on inside. We opened and closed the door a couple of times to see if it would go off, but that changed nothing. We then tried to turn it on and use it to see if that would make a difference. The microwave would not do a thing. We pushed every button after setting the clock and nothing happened. The only thing we were able to do was set the clock.
