We have had this Sharp R270 microwave for a few months and are delighted with it. It is well finished and its muted silver finish blends into our kitchen very well. The category E power rating puts it in the top category for a domestic microwave.
Despite its compact dimensions this oven can take a largish dinner plate comfortably. The only thing to watch out for is if you cook boil-in-the-bag rice, or soups, just remember to fold over the top of the packet. Even if you forget, they'll still cook, but, the packet could foul on the roof of the oven and result in uneven heating because the turntable hasn't rotated the product. This is not a significant problem and a fact common to most compact ovens with turntables.
The touch controls are simple to operate and there are a wide range of "presets" for items such as tea/coffee reheat, pasta/pizza, frozen meals, vegetables and even popcorn! There is also a weight based defrost and cook function. We have found the cooking to be effective - even and consistent with the recommended cooking time for the product concerned.
The blue display is clear, although, I understand the view of some other reviewers who think it odd that no clock is displayed in idle mode. This expectation though is only a product of our conditioning, we buy microwaves to cook and clocks to us the time!
It is amazing how the price of these sorts of products have tumbled over the decades, and, yet, the precision and sophistication has increased so much. With this Sharp oven you are getting a quality product that will probably last a decade for around the price of a basket of shopping!
We are pleased with the features, quality and cooking performance of this oven. Recommended.
