Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sharp R270SLM 20ltr Solo Microwave Silver (Kitchen & Home)
works fine and for the price I have no major complaints but having used it for a week or so and working out how long it takes food to actually cook properly, I would rate this as closer to 700W rather than its claimed 800W. Or perhaps 750W on a good day or when cooking from frozen. As it seems to be closer to the actual suggested times on items cooked from frozen than items from the chilled cabinet. However, now that I know that limitation, I just cook items from the chilled cabinet at their suggested 700W time and frozen items between their suggested 700W and 800W times and everything comes out good. Of the few presets I have tried so far, reheating drinks and cooking a couple of TV dinner type frozen meals, they work as claimed, with drinks nice and hot but not too hot to drink and the TV dinners just about perfect.
So, overall, for the price it is a pretty good item and have taken off one star for what I see as the relatively minor discrepancy between its claimed rating and its actual working rating and would recommend it for someone wanting a basic microwave with a few frills.
Also, I suggest giving it a good wipe down after use as it does build up a fair layer of condensation all over the inside during cooking of more than a few of minutes. Then again, I find the the minute waiting time that is recommended for most foods coming out of the oven is just about the right amount of time for wiping it down.
Note, to repeat what others have already noted as it may matter to some, this doesn't have a clock display when not in use. Though personally I like that as there is no excuse to leave yet one more item switched on when not in use.
