Now having used it for just over a month got to say I am very pleased with it. Roomy interior, 40L size, plenty of room. Easy to use. Great results.
You can also do batch cooking, using the supplied two slide-in shelves (convention only). However, you do need to turn the food manually now and again (as stated in the book), as cooking in this way tends to burn at the rear quickly, near the heat source. It's not really a problem as 95% of the time cook using the two round racks provided, on the turntable - food rotates and does not burn.
Overall, would recommend this microwave.
As on the previous oven the lamp is a 'B' to change as it necessitates removal of the complete cover to gain access. The control panel is sometimes awkward to see and I find it necessary to get myself down to eye level with the panel to see it properly. But then I am 70!
However, there is a knack to perfecting the cooking and it comes with experimenting. So don't expect instant results - just like with anything else there is a knack to how long things are done to they way you want, as most guidance in the manual are for general advise.
I've had this model for just over a year now, and it definitely seems to be living up to the model I had before - which was absolutely identical in operation and size, though the model number has been changed. This combi is very easy to use and far less complex than the Panasonic model I have just bought to replace my secondary combination oven (an Aldi model which stopped working after 4 year).
In a nutshell, the Sharp R98STMA is efficient, reliable, easy to use, large enough to cook for the whole family and can be all singing and dancing for anyone who wants something more than a basic oven and microwave facility. It is simply "The Best!
What I do if I need say a 2 hr cook, set for 90mins, when it goes down to 60mins left, press the 10min key 3 times takes it to 90 again, there is your 2 hrs. (simples)
I think I read somewhere in the manual that the reason for this shorter time setting is a safety feature; stops people setting the timer for 4 hours and perhaps set oven temp at 240c when they wanted 130c to slow cook and going out of the house to come back to a 'no house'. As another poster pointed out, you can use the revolving racks for convection cooking. These are for 'Yorkshire Pudding' recipes etc. It clearly tells you to use both the high and low racks. ( This avoids having to turn 1/2 way ) which would ruin them. The book refers to '2 X shelves', '2 X racks' (high & low in both) & 'ceramic plate on the turntable'. If you cannot turn the item once you start cooking it, then use the racks on the turntable. The only time you cannot use the shelves is when you microwave, or Grill, or any dual cook programme that involves either micro and grill. Reason for this being, steel touching sides of oven will damage microwave; using shelves to grill will burn at the back. Because of the 40 ltr size of the oven you can use any oven proof dish on the 'racks' as long as these are no bigger than 30cm in diameter,(that is nearly 12 ins. in real money)they will revolve without touching the sides, cooking very evenly.
