LG LCS1112ST Mid-Size Microwave: Make easy meals to welcome your family home. Hassle-free cooking buttons let you cook and warm food with the touch of a button, while the energy-saving setting turns off the display after 5 minutes of non-use, dropping power consumption to less than 0.1 watts.
BUYER BEWARE - WARRANTY ISSUE
Posted by: Susan from: on
Love this unit, but the window in the door started to steam up between the panes of glass. Called LG warranty (had only had the unit for a couple of months) and was told that I was only eligible for "carry-in" service. I am an elderly woman and can't lift this microwave. Even if I were younger/stronger and could manage carry-in service, I might, according to the LG Customer Service Rep, have to pay for door replacement. This is obviously a manufacturing defect, yet LG warranty won't send out a service person and might not cover repair charges anyway. Be forewarned!

Powerful & quiet
Posted by: Klingerviacincy from: Cincinnati, OH on
Chose this because it was one of the few that would fit in the cubby above our countertop. Very quiet. Light comes on when door is opened, which the Panasonic models I was looking at do not. Plenty of power. Has timer and a 30 second quick start button, which I wanted. My only disappointment was that only the front is stainless steel. The top & sides are black metal. This is deceiving from the ad. Luckily, due to its Placement in my kitchen it's not a big deal.

No Light When Door Opens
Posted by: AnnieBelle from: San Luis Obispo on
It has stunned me to find how much variation there is in microwave features. After owning microwaves for decades, I mistakenly assumed they all functioned the same. Wrong. This model (and all smaller LG microwaves) has an interior light that works when the machine is running, but goes out when you open the door. I guess if you only need a smaller unit, you deserve to get burned when you reach in to retrieve your piping hot dish or drink. And how difficult would it be to clean it on the inside, without a light? Sheer madness in the designers of this. I guess a little electric light switch took up to much room in the smaller housing. As soon as I plugged this in and discovered no light, it went straight back in the box and back to the store the next day.

Good microwave for daily use
Posted by: Hahag from: MA on
This microwave is great for everyday use. The only negative aspect is that the keyboard is dark and difficult to see unless in a very lit room

The black interior makes it very difficult to see the food inside an to clean. The gray writing on the black control panel is difficult to read even when the kitchen lights are on.

Good quality and easy to use
Posted by: Happy from: Massachusetts on
Need a new microwave and this one fit the bill. Good size. Lots of features and great price. A little noise but can live with it.

Works well for our needs
Posted by: Teee from: on
Only complaint is that the writing is to small and to dark making the input selection process more difficult than necessary. Only reason for a 3 rating. Every thing is else works well .

Quit within 10 months
Posted by: lmallred from: on
The microwave quit after 10 months of use. Still within warranty period (1 year) and Best Buy was not responsible for that so they sent me to LG. I will NEVER buy another LG product as long as I live. After countless phone calls, emails, faxes, and hours of my life that I'll never get back.....I STILL am no closer to receiving a refund (been trying for 2 months). Worst customer service ever.

nice looking, not too big
Posted by: thecolonel from: newport, RI on
good value, looks nice, turntable stay in place as it is the old design most brands have abandoned, inside light turns off when door is left open, used mostly for warm up / melting and works well for those...buttons do not have a delineation space, so sometimes it is hard to hit the right one the first time.
