      Best microwave ever!

      Posted
      Pickle

      I kind of settled on this microwave - I wanted a bigger one, but couldn't really afford it. It turns out that the size of this is totally adequate and there are about a million other things about it that make it the best microwave I've ever had. (And I have sadly had to replace them a lot.) The size is big enough to easily accommodate my largest plates, and that's good enough for me. So I was glad to learn that I don't really need one bigger than this. I've had it about 3 months now and have never had an issue with it being too small. My last one was 1200W - this one is a little less, so things do take a bit longer to cook, but it's a matter of a few seconds. I initially thought the lack of numbers on this was pretty weird, but it actually is pretty fun to slide your finger along the bar to add time. Having some of the controls inside is also a little weird, but it's fine since you have to open the door to use it anyhow. I like the sleek look of the outside and now that I've had experience with this design, I prefer it to the standard kind. One of my favorite things about this microwave is that you can start it just by pushing the start button without setting a time. When you press start, it cooks for 30 seconds. And during that 30 seconds, you can add more time either in 30-second increments by repeatedly pushing the start button or by using the + and - buttons and slider. The little jingle it plays instead of a regular beep is kind of stupid but also cute. It also doesn't upset my stupid cats - they both get upset by things that beep. The jingle plays every minute or so - for me this is a great feature because I often leave foods in the microwave to cool and I have occasionally completely forgotten things in it. The bright light inside is super cool and useful. This seemed like a meaningless feature when I made the purchase, but it actually makes a big difference when you're trying to get a good look at progress through the door. This microwave seems to have less splatter than any that I've ever used. And everything does wipe off very easily. Some of these features seemed a little gimmicky when I was comparing microwaves online, but they've all turned out to be helpful and make the microwave more fun and easy to use.

      Compact, powerful, and a bit fun

      I decided that I'd get rid of an older 'standard size' counter-top model, and replace it with something newer and smaller, thus gaining back some space. I checked out the online reviews, and specs, and pretty much knew immediately this was going to be a good choice . . . and was it ever!! There are a few minor oddities to get past on the initial use, including something as simple as opening the oven door. Most microwaves (that don't have a button to press), have a slot/well to put your fingers in, and then push with the thumb in the opposite direction. That doesn't work here since both side of the 'finger well' are a part of the actual door. You simply just pull, with no opposite force needed. I worried this might cause the oven to shift a bit each time I opened it, but the weight was enough that it didn't happen at all. Not even a little bit. The control are both external and internal to the main door, which was a first for me, but it works fine. Simply read the instruction on the process, and then it's easy. This compact microwave has a higher overall power than the larger one it replaces. I've had success with cooking, warming, and re-heating. Adding time/power to any in-progress cooking is a snap. The LG tune, to indicate your meal is ready, is a nice a fun touch. I'm super pleased with my new appliance, and would easily re-purchase it with zero hesitation . . . as well as recommend it to family & friends. Thanks LG and Best Buy for confirming this was the perfect replacement for my kitchen cooking.

      A cheerful microwave

      We had to replace our microwave and wanted something that was comparable in size, power, and could fit in the cramped space we had. This microwave did not disappoint. The LED light is nice and bright, without being glaring. The cooking is even and predictable. Granted, our old microwave could keep the middle of a casserole frozen while boiling the outside, so our expectations weren't high. However, it really does cook well. It also takes up less space than the old microwave, while being larger capacity, which was an added bonus in our small kitchen. It's a whole lot quieter than microwaves we've had before. That goes double for the timer noise. Instead of a screeching beep that wakes up anyone still asleep, it plays a cheerful little tune. This is probably my favorite part of the whole microwave. It's silly, but I love it. The buttons presses and other noises are also more pleasant chimes compared to the piercing beep of previous microwaves. The only downside is that you can't just punch in the time you need. It has a plus and minus button to add time, 10 seconds at a time until around three minutes, which then adds 30 seconds at a time. So if you need precision down to the second, you'll just have to watch it. I thought it might be a problem with baking, but the ten seconds is fine enough, even with softening butter. I haven't yet figured out most of the other built-in settings, as I just stick with cooking by time, though I did like how un-fussy the defrost function was.

      Great little Microwave!

      The Hubs and I moved into a new place that didn't come with microwave so we tried to see if we could do without one for a few days. Turns out that's very difficult to do for certain things you want to heat up quickly and not wait for a stove top to heat up. I had done some review hunting on good microwaves that were under a decent price range and not too over the top and kept coming back to this one. The controls on it can be a little difficult to understand if you are coming from a standard microwave with a number pad where you can enter your minutes manually and be done with it, it instead has various modes you can select that fit what you are trying to heat up. If you don't want to pick a mode, simply hitting start will make it heat for 30 seconds which is great for warming up drinks or melting butter. The popcorn setting works perfectly well, it doesn't over pop or burn the popcorn at all and I don't have to wait by the microwave to quickly pull it out to avoid over cooking it. That's a pretty big plus. It has a lot of power as well, it doesn't take it beet long to make a dish super hot. Oh, and I can't forget how delightfully musical it is. It doesn't have an annoying beep or ding but rather plays little chipper tunes when it's done.

      Very nice but small inside

      I purchased this for my mother. She needed a small microwave to fit in the space under her cabinet. The outside size of it was just right, but the inside is pretty small, too small for mom. If you only need a microwave for heating up popcorn, a cup of coffee or tea or an average size plate of food, this would work. You won't be able to heat much more. As in the cup of tea AND plate of food would have to be heated seperately. Nice looking exterior and the inside has a nice glossy coating for easy clean up. Love the bright led light that comes on when you open the door. It's modern and BRIGHT! Easy quick cleanup for the front since there is no handle to clean around and its pretty much finger print free. Mom did not like the fact you have to open door to press buttons for other temperature settings. I don't see the big deal in that since you have to open the door ANYWAY to put your food in Lol. And if you have to heat longer just press the start once for an additional 30 secs, or twice for 1 min, and so on. It plays a cute "song" alert as the timer alarm to let you know your food is ready. I liked everything about it minus the size of the interior. Mom did not want it so back it went. Oh, to make matters worse, it had damage on the side, as if it had been dropped. It didnt look like a return since it was all sealed inside the box. The styrofoam was already broken at the time the box was opened.

      Sleek look and great light!

      I needed a small-ish microwave for my new home due to the limited counter space. This one seemed to be the one based on its dimensions, wattage, ratings, and reviews. Having used it for a few weeks, I can offer my thoughts on the appliance. The upside: * The interior light is wonderful! * Pleasant chime sound instead of just beeping * Powerful enough to do most of what I do with a microwave: frozen meals, reheating, and warming * Sleek appearance both inside & out * Ideal size for my needs The downside: *Like many newer microwaves, time is limited to 10- or 30-second increments (no numeric pad) *That "pleasant chime" can become a little annoying if you need to wait to retrieve the food/beverage *Some of my dishes won't fit--but I can't blame the microwave for this. After all, it is marketed as a "compact" unit. Overall, I am happy with my purchase thus far. I would make it a 4.75 overall rating if I could.

      So nice. The musical sound replaces the annoying ding. The door and the operation is super quiet for a microwave. To make the door even more quiet, just guide it closed instead of just shutting it. The LED lights bounce against the sparkly glass trey, very nice. I love the one-button operation on this machine. The slide feature for time is convenient. Less buttons, more time for yourself. Less is definitely more. Very clean look. And no annoying button to open the door. LG is awesome. I was going to get the 1.5 but 0.9 is good enough for our condo. If you have more space, get the 1.5. If there is a way to quiet the entire machine, I'd do that, but haven't had a chance to look up it's features. It's a microwave... but a beautiful one at that.

      I love this unique modern microwave. There are NO numerical digits to press for cooking & heating up any food or hot driinks. Just simply press the '+' symbol to add 10 seconds increments. Mid-size 1000 watts. What I do like is not too big & enough watts to heat up food in less time and very easy to clean inside. Inside charcoal gray porcelain look. Turn table with modern very small powerful led light. Definitely brite white light. Plus when timer is done it has a musical chime reminder that is done. It will ring serveral times till you empty it. Stainless steel outside finish. So COOL! Great buy !!!
