Carousel 2.0 cu.ft. Countertop Microwave in Stainless Steel with Sensor Cooking-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fairly Nice Unit but Noisy I took it back. Looked good and had features we wanted but it was noisy. I assume a poorly balance fan but I don't need that noise so it was returned. Check noise before you buy! Plug on cord was a "normal" straight plug which adds an extra 2 inch space from wall if your outlet is behind the location where you want the unit to be located. A right angle appliance plug should be standard. Also, sides are painted metal - not stainless steel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sharp microwave cooks beautifully, performs reliably well This big microwave does a great job at defrosting, cooking and reheating food, and isn't that why you get one? We love the higher wattage, which cooks faster and more thoroughly than our previous oven. The sensor feature is really convenient - no fiddling around trying to figure how much time to type in to cook a baked potato, it just senses when it's done. Popcorn cooks fully and without burning. We use the "reheat beverage" feature a lot and it works great on this unit. So does the defrost cycle. The control panel is logical and easy to use, with 2 very minor details: there is no "reheat meal" button for a refrigerated meal; and the panel light, which shines straight into your eyes, fails to illuminate the panel. No big deal, just puzzling why they bothered including it. Sharp's carousel technology is great for hands-free even heating. The stainless steel housing is attractive in our kitchen, and the unit's button-latch works fine. The interior is easy to keep clean, and big enough to nuke a large pizza. We do think the MSRP is rather high,, but our last microwave oven, also a Sharp carousel, lasted ~15 years, and the quality of this one seems as good or better. Besides, after we compared prices locally and on several other websites, we found the best deal at Home Depot. We're very happy with our purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good product as described I hunted around, read specs, and reviews before purchasing this microwave. So far I'm happy, and it's been a few weeks. Honestly, I don't intend to use all the intricate features. I have used reheat sensor, which works well except for beverages (I've boiled over a couple times). I've adjusted power levels, basic stuff. I have used keep warm plus, and I love it. I can heat my veggie, potato, and gravy, then fit it all in the microwave on keep warm while I slice meat to get on plates. Never had that before - it's great! I read someone's review that the microwave is noisy. I've never had a silent microwave, so this is fine and seems normal as far as noise. It looks sleek, is a great size, and fits as I hoped according to the measurements - though I cut it close and didn't account for the skrews on each side that add a centimeter (give or take) to the width. I ordered online, it arrived quickly, and undamaged. Hope it lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good value! We bought this unit online and the description just doesn't do this microwave justice! it has great features and is very well made and the price was right. It is a bit bigger than we need but the "Keep Warm" feature is fantastic! We just love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I got this microwave in early Dec & so far it has worked great. Its huge & there is room to cook more than one thing at a time if desired. Looks nice & is user friendly. I've also noticed that the food that gets splattered on the inside is pretty easy to get off as well, which is nice. I've used a paper towel with nothing but water to wipe it down & everything came right off.
