    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. The interior is finished in a cream enamel.

    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 tell 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.

    works a treat. have a look on the "Sharp" website before you buy. its a lot more informative about this product.
    as a microwave - it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    only gripe. the blasted clock! (it does not have a clock feature) but the colon ':' keeps flashing and there's nothing you can do to stop it!!
    minor thing, but one of those that's likely to niggle away at you!! especially as its bright blue.

    This microwave oven does not come with any bells and whistles -just the sort I was looking for. I have been using it for the past couple of months and it has been absolutely fine. Easy to use , no fuss item. Does exactly what it says on the tin.

    This microwave looks good and does what it says on the tin, no problems so far, has all the facilities you would expect - except perhaps a clock. However, this means you aren't tempted to leave it plugged in all the time. If you want a clock, buy a clock, this is a microwave and it does that job very well.

    We purchased this microwave several years ago but now find it doesn't heat the food properly and we will have to replace it.
    It is a good looking, reliable microwave but the main problem is condensation, which causes the interior to deteriorate.
    The edge of the door interior and the base underneath the turntable, which are both paint finished, in particular.
    So my recommendation is, if you are willing to dry out the interior/door after EVERY use, and don't want to pay a lot for a basic model, go ahead.
    Unfortunately, it's not just me using it, but my sons and husband too, and getting them to dry it off would be an impossibility.
    No standby clock either, btw, which was a nuisance at first, but I got used to it.

    This is very good microwave. It has very soft button also the button which used to open the door is very soft.
    it has very bright right which helps to view the food when is cook. The negative side of it, this microwave haven't got clock. I will advise others to buy. Good value of money
