redid kitchen, and installed this microwave in the island at recommendation of appliance dealer. As all drawer microwaves essentially function the same (with Sharp making most microwaves sold under other brand names), the distinguishing feature of this model is the control panel when open faces upwards, making it easier to use.
My kitchen designer recommended this microwave drawer. She said that all microwave drawers are made by Sharp regardless of the branding (e.g. Wolff and Viking micro drawers are made by Sharp). I went to the appliance store and the deciding factor on this model was that there is a flip control panel at counter height so you don't have to bend down or crouch to set the microwave. It's a great product! We had installed next to frig to make it easy to reheat food.
