    Good enough if able to work around design flaws

    Quite a few reviewers complained there is no light when the microwave door is opened. This is actually not a real handicap in my opinion because the oven cavity height is taller than most similar 1.1 cu ft models. The inside is painted bright white so it’s easy to see. It also has added advantage that you can just leave the door open to dry out the excessive steams (such as during cooking ramen) without worrying consuming the useful life time of the oven light. Obviously a taller oven cavity, it also means that the oven has a narrower depth so that the volume stays at 1.1 cu ft. My biggest complain of this oven is that the roller guide for the glass tray is unusually small in diameter and the glass tray itself is very light. This disastrous combination means that when you put food (especially slightly heavier items) on the glass tray, without even knowing it the glass tray could easily be tipped and off balanced dislodging itself from the rotation coupler leading to severely burnt food! The best feature of this oven is that because the cavity is taller, the inside is painted bright white and the cooking light is bright when on, you can easily see or observe your food while cooking.

    GOOD VALUE FOR A DECENT MICROWAVE

    We just had the kitchen remodeled and the designer had an open shelf in order to fit a microwave. We did not want to have one sit on the counter or as an exhaust unit. This microwave fit into the space nicely, which was not huge, and our choice was limited. The only option we miss with this unit is that it does not have a sensor cooking feature, which I found a convenient feature in my previous unit, but not a deal breaker. The stainless steel look fits in with our other appliances. The plastic film needed to be removed, and it covers most of the unit, a bit of a nuisance, but must have been put on for a good reason to protect the finish. Good power and 10 power levels. Does have one touch buttons for certain foods and auto defrost, however we have not used those features as of this writing. Easy to read blue LED display. Would give 5 stars if it had sensor cooking, if we could we would give it 4.5 stars.

    Beautiful and stylish counter top microwave. Stainless steel and attractive. Matches my other appliances. I bought this to replace an old Sharp Carousel who's carousel stopped turning and it was time. Great size for my limited counter space although a bit bigger than the one it replaced. Make sure you measure before you order. I've had this for a couple of months and it is very powerful. Points off for the factory smell it still has and key pad that is a bit too confusing. I miss just being able to enter time and press "go"! Otherwise, it's great. One of the "feet" is shorter and it rocks a bit but it might be my counter. I might put something underneath to compensate. Good performance and happy I bought it.

    This micro wave seems to work as described.

    I’m having some concerns with this micro"wave. For the most part it does exactly what it’s supposed to do and it does it in a timely fashion. Food placed inside is heated thoroughly and evenly. Now the downside. My biggest concern is the presence of a strong ""bakelite odor being omitted from this unit during operation. While it seems to be somewhat less obnoxious a month into operation, the thought of an electrical problem going forward is very concerning. A lesser concern is the inconvenience of being limited to a 30sec only, or a one minute plus, on cycle . Going forward, my recommendation is walk past this microwave !

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I am very pleased with my new Sharp microwave! It is compact and fits nicely on my countertop. It is spacious on the inside and fits a large plate (my plates are square and do not even bump the sides of the microwave while on the carousel). The stainless steel adds a contemporary touch to my kitchen and is easy to wipe off. The 30-second button is great for smaller food items, and the 1-minute, 2-minute (and so on) buttons are convenient. Only drawback: the light only turns on inside the microwave when it is in use, and the clear film on the outside of the entire microwave is a bit difficult to remove.

    Good microwave for the money. I was replacing an old Sharp because the carousel stopped turning and it was very old. Beautiful stainless steal outside. Works well and has a lot of power. Shortcomings....still trying to figure out the power buttons and power levels. My old one was simpler to operate. Compact and nice looking. Hoping the air that escapes while on is just a fan and not radiation. I like this microwave a lot and it matches my toaster oven nicely. One of the legs is shorter....or possibly the counter is not exactly level. It rocks a bit when I open the door. May get something to put underneath the one leg.

    I have had Sharp microwaves in the past and this one lives up to all the other ones I have had. I had to buy this one as a temporary for the family because it took two weeks to get the Over the range we originally ordered. I decided to keep this one as a back up and maybe for my workplace or for my son if he goes away for college. The stainless look is very stylish for a small microwave and it performs very well and even better than my new over the range model (Not Sharp). I bought another brand only to match all the other appliances. I really like it and highly recommend to anyone that wants something of this size.

    Good Mid-Size Microwave

    The Sharp 1.1 Cubic Ft. Carousel Microwave is a good mid-size choice. Not too big to fit in confined places, but bigger and more powerful than the compact low power microwaves that cost about the same. The stainless steel finish is nice, and easy to clean. The controls give you a lot of great options, including one for Orville Redenbacher’s Popcorn. This is the only real drawback, the controls really could use a backlight. The panel is darkly colored, and in dim light, the buttons can be a tad hard to read. The illuminated display is blue, and quite bright. It includes a digital clock, which is handy.
