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.
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.
My old oven broke down a few years ago, and the reason I didn't renew it immediately was that I could find no models allowing me to set the cooking time to the precision I wanted. The numeric keypad the old model had, allowing me to set the time down to the second, had gone out of fashion to be replaced with an inferior design of only allowing the user to choose between pre-set times such as 10 sec, 30 sec, 1 min, 1 min 30 sec, 2 min etc., insufficient precision if I know that a mug of milk starts boiling after 1 min 50 sec.
The precision problem has now been solved by certain manufacturers, Sharp included, by using three buttons to add respectively 10 min, 1 min and 10 sec to the cooking time. That means I can set the cooking time to a precision of 10 seconds regardless of the total cooking time.
There are more than cooking and defrosting programmes enough for my needs.
I like the design.
The price is about right. Good value for money.
The manual is easy to understand.
The buttons are not very sensitive. You have to apply a good deal of force to activate them. If there isn't anything behind the oven to stop it from sliding back, the entire oven may slide back by the force needed to activate the buttons, depending on how smooth is the surface it is placed on.Read more ›
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.
