Summary: A good microwave, but not as good as the price. The defrost is so so, and the reheat rarely heats to an acceptable temp. Often needing one or two 30 sec or 1 minute pops. The shelf pin broke, and that was an ordeal to get. 1st they sent a shelf not the shelf pin. I don't feel like this unit will last another 3 years. The power magnitron feels weak like its about to go any day. A heavy expensive bummer on the edge. And no I haven't used the hot dog button.
Summary: This microwave just arrived an so far it is awesome.. Thank you "LG" for the mmicrowave of the future...It is sleek in its design an most profale for the cooking needs of this house.. I expect it to be around for a long time in this house..
Summary: No O-T-R microwave/vent is really perfect. The microwave part has to deal with all the grease and steam coming up from the cooktop it is above. That wreaks havoc on the electronics of the microwave. Rather ironically, the OTR microwave vents went out in BOTH of my houses. My brother helped me replace the first one. It was a bear of a job that actually involved taking apart one of the Ikea kitchen cabinets.
Summary: This microwave did a good job cooking food, but it broke twice in less than two years. LG sent a repair person to fix the microwave the first time, but we had to go without a microwave for a week. This time, we are not sure if we want to repair it or buy a different microwave. I would not recommend it.
