I can't believe it!
We rent and when I broke the GE Profile microwave and convection oven we decided to replace it ourselves instead of bothering the landlord because it was my fault. Looked everywhere for the correct dimentions because it's kind of a built in. Everything was very, very expensive with the micro/convec combo and then we came across the Sharp. How could something $400 cheaper be as good as the original? (2004)

Well, it is and more so.

It grills.

It toasts perfectly.

The convection oven is quicker to heat up and does a better job than the GE. The only thing I didn't like was the corn muffins...they looked more like popovers.

The microwave is quicker but it's less powerful by 10 watts. Figure that one out?

It's very easy to use, comes with a cheat sheet page that is so thumbing through the book looking for how to use the grill for instance. I usually can't do a thing and have to call my husband for help. Not with this one.

It has less room height wise but that hasn't been an issue at all.

So I guess I've been proven wrong....cheaper is not necessarily cheap.

If you're looking for even a microwave....try this product.....I guarantee you'll use it more than you think.

nice but big
The oven is very nice, works perfectly and has great features.

However consider that it's pretty big (in the back it's still 15cm more).

Also a not so nice feature is that after any non-pure microwave cooking the fan

last some more minutes to remove the heat, this is right however it takes quite long

and the fan is pretty loud.

However a great all in 1 oven, with stainless steel inside. I'd recommend it!

Had this microwave for 2 years. The grill feature gives VERY uneven results - stick to your bbQ grill. It takes a long time to heat anything up and as I found out this week - it cannot pop a bag of popcorn - even a small bag. Each snack size popcorn bag took 5 minutes and then less than half the kernels popped.

Will be replacing this with anything but a Sharp.

Too Complicated and Too Small Interior Capacity
Well, I admit that I do need to sit down with the manual which I have not done since my preliminary look through gives me the impression of unnecessary complication. However, I can't understand why I have to enter some number that tells the machine what I am going to be cooking (with very few choices available) in order to use the convection feature. Sure I can look up a number in the manual and plug it in, but what am I supposed to do when what I am going to cook is NOT a casserole or a baked potato or one of the very few other choices they provide????

Currently I just pick one of the choices and use it whether or not it is what I am really trying to cook. I would vastly prefer simply to be able to put in the temp. I want to cook an item at and the time I want to cook it for. That would certainly seem to make sense, but apparently you can't do that. Whatever I plug in for a food choice, it does seem to work okay except that preheat takes forever.

The other thing is that I sure wish I had purchased the larger model. This one has too small an interior for many things I might like to fix. I would rather have paid more and have more interior space. Unless you have space limitations, get the larger model. A major reason I did not choose the larger model is that it looked too complicated! How ironic is that.

Other than being too small, the machine works okay except for the weird and unnecessary complications regarding how to use the convection feature. It's very annoying to me. Why can't I just plug in the time and temperature I want to bake at, and put the food in, and cook it?

Good until Warranty wore out
This microwave worked very well until the 13th Month. (one month after warranty for parts and labor) The microwave quit working. All the other features work fine but the microwave quit heating. I was told by Sharp that I need to call a local repair shop, which I did. Sharp will replace the magnatron but will not cover the labor which is just about the cost of a standard microwave. Too bad for me. Anyways it's decision time to see if we want all the features this has and spend about 100.00 or buy new. I must say that I have never had a microwave oven quit after only 1 year, even a cheap one. Not sure if I just got a bad unit or just not a good durable unit to begin with.
