It meets the requirement of us wanting to remove the microwave from over the cooktop and move it to an accessible, but non-obtrusive place in the kitchen. This microwave meets all the requirements and to top it off, the drawer opens with a touch of the button and the liquids in cups don't spill...
I redid my kitchen and this microwave fits perfectly in my island. It has so many features and is easy to use. Very easy to clean. It really makes the kitchen look stunning! Overstock is a great company to purchase from, it arrived very quickly and the sales reps are the best!
Extremely happy with this microwave. Overstock shipped quickly. It was very easy to install into a microwave cabinet. Features are user friendly and smart. Sensor feature heats food to perfection, takes the guess work out of food prep. Easy to keep clean. Best of all it looks great in my new kitchen.
I love the drawer concept. Press a button and it automatically comes out......it has lots of space and cooks fast and evenly. Press a button and it closes automatically. The microwave is at my fingertips ...no reaching and when my grandkids are hear I press another button for a saftey lock. I love this microwave.
We had this model in our old home for 7 years. Trouble free, easy to clean, safe to use. If something spills, it spills in the drawer, not on you or on the floor. Needless to say, it does everything perfectly from reheating to cooking. It's worth the extra price, especially if you have arthritis in your hands; safer to use. First purchase made for our new home. It was easily installed by our electrician.
So, this microwave doesn't have a spinning tray by design. Instead, they have the magnetron spinning above the top panel of the microwave to heat the food evenly. It seems like a decent design choice, but the microwave we had, it started to go out of alignment and hitting the top panel creating energy arcs, this caused the top to burn and start melting and falling on our food. The sad part is, only Sharp makes these drawer microwaves, and it took almost 5 years for it to start doing this, so it's not covered under warranty since the actual magnetron is still functional (that's the only part that's covered for 5 years). Sharp won't do anything about it. We had to buy a new one with the exact model and hope that it won't do the same as the other one.
product was delivered quickly and in excellent shape. the only thing I was concerned about after opening it, is that this microwave doesn't have a turntable and does not rotate your food. That being said, so far everything I've used it for has been heated up perfectly! Defrost works awesome and water even seems to come to a boil quicker. This appliance looks sharp installed! I just wish it came with is a trim kit.
We were happy to find this microwave drawer as a great option when having a microwave in the lower cabinets. I was initially worried about small children opening it but was happy to find there was a lock feature. Though a little pricey it was about the same as a regular built-in microwave with the trim kit.
