To my mind the selling point of this microwave oven is the built in quartz grill, a very unusual feature for units at this price point. For the purpose of the review I will concentrate on this aspect.

My old microwave packed in and so I decided to look for a replacement but this time I wanted one with an integral grill. The problem with most dual function ovens lies with the grill element: they seem usually to be metal heating bars permanently suspended from the roof of the oven interior. This restricts the height of the cooking bowl that can be used inside and restricts the potential of the oven.

In searching online I found that this unit features a Quartz grill rather than the more usual type. In fact this was the only microwave oven with such a grill at this price range that I could find. Further investigation online failed show just how the heating element was mounted in the oven but I decided to order anyway. We were lucky for it turned out that the grill element was recessed in to the roof of the oven interior behind glass (or quartz, I suppose) with no projections to get in the way. The grill works really well and the supplied metal stand raises the food to the right distance from the heating elements. Note that the heating elements are only in the rear half of the roof but as the turntable rotates in use all the food gets equal coverage. The oven is quite small and the grill stand smaller still so only single slices of toasted cheese can be accomodated.... (shame).

But enough about the grill...

This is a very attractive device with a shiny stainless steel interior and a black plastic fascia with a grey band below. A small but bright blue LED panels displays the clock, timer and other relevant information.

My girlfriend did most of the research work on this microwave but after it got delivered, I discovered why it was her final choice. I have never had a microwave/grill before and I have to say I am impressed with it. Firstly, the aesthetics of the machine is beautiful, it goes very well with a black and white/chrome kitchen (which we have). Secondly, it is quite powerful and grills quite well. Granted I have never had a an electronic grill. but we have tried different foods, like meat, corn-on-cob etc and it works very well. It was easy to program, came with a few accessories like the usually microwave plate and a grill stand. All in all, I am happy with the purchase.

I bought this microwave from Amazon, based on the reviews and it was the best looking microwave in Currys also (but they wanted £80 for it). I have 2 Sharp TVs and have found it a reliable brand.

Not used the grill facility in it, as my oven has a built-in grill, but microwave is powerful, display does have a 12 / 24hr clock (despite what someone has previously said on here), it illuminates in blue so looks very modern. Even the "beep" noise doesn't sound cheap, and I'm confident this is the best microwave on the market today.

Had a Sharp microwave that lasted for ages until a few weeks ago, decided to stick with the brand based on my good experiences with the previous one. This is a lot smaller but still takes a dinner plate comfortably. Looks stylish, seems well built, easy to use. The presets work well and make cooking/defrosting very easy. Hoping its as durable as the last one!

Sharp R658SLM, 20L, 800W microwave, 1000W quartz grill

Great value microwave,easy on the eye and the instructions are clear and precise.
No degree in rocket science needed as the touch controls are also easy to follow and use,cooking is quick with good results.

Earlier revues that I had read said that this model has no clock (time of day) but not only has it got a clock but it is bright blue and almost lights up our small kitchen on it's own.

I was quite pleased with this compact microwave, it didn't take up a lot of room and it worked flawlessly for about 4 weeks. Then one evening I put some fish in the microwave to cook, and got this odor of hot plastic. The fish was in a plastic dish, so I double checked to make sure I hadnt accidentally put it in grill mode, and that the dish was OK, but all seemed fine, so I restarted the microwave. Within 45 seconds fumes were seeping out around the door and from the vents on the side. I turned it off but the fumes continued. On opening it up I saw they they were pouring through the grating that protects the internal light. I only have a small kitchen, so tried to pick up the microwave and take it outside, but almost burned myself, as it was really hot on the base on the right hand side where the smoke was coming from. I had to use a folded towel to be able to get it out of the house, and by then I had to use another towel in order to breath the air in my kitchen. Even 30 minutes later the base was noticably hot to the touch and the smell lingered for a long time. I probably was just unlucky and got a faulty unit, but I'd not have another of these, as I'd simply not be able to trust it, and dread to think what'd have happened if I'd just turned it on and left it running.
